Babeny Farm Stables
How to find us:
Although the address of Newton Abbot is our nearest postal town we are approx 15 miles away in the centre of Dartmoor.
Sat Nav – The best route for the sat nav is from the A38 exit Ashburton (Peartree) or Tavistock. There is a risk it will take you through tiny lanes indirectly which could make you late for your ride. Please review where we are on the map prior to your journey. Once within a few mile radius the sat nav will bring you down the correct 'no through road' but will say you have reached your destination about 1/4 mile before you get to us. Keep bearing left and stay on the road until you can drive no further and you will come up into our yard. If you are coming to the farm and stables, ignore the sign that says "NO VEHICLES BEYOND THIS POINT', drive past and up the hill into the yard.
From the A38 take the Peartree exit (B3352) and head towards Poundsgate and Princetown.You are approx 20 minutes away.
at Poundsgate go past the Tavistock Inn (on your left) and continue for another 2 miles. You will see a sign for the stables just before the turning. Turn immediately right after the riding sign at ‘Oldsbrim’. Straight across the cross roads signed for ‘Babeny’. Follow this road to the very end until you drive up into the car park.
From Tavistock take the B3357 Two Bridges road to Ashburton. The Babeny turn off is the first left after Dartmeet. And then left again signed Babeny. Follow this road to the very end until you drive up into the car park.
