From the A30 dual carriageway turn off at Whiddon Down and proceed through Whiddon Down village past the Post Inn and turn left at the mini roundabout onto the A382. Shortly after the roundabout look out for the Throwleigh signpost and turn right towards the village. After about a mile and a half, immediately after the stone bridge, turn left and this is the lane to Langstone. You will climb a gentle hill and when it levels out you will see Langstone farm on your right. The stable yard is immediately opposite and that would be the best place to park.
