Your SATNAV will WANT YOU TOO! Unfortunately, your satnav will take you to a remote and locked gate to the Lupton Estate. Big mistake! Don't do it!
Remain on the main road (A3022) for Brixham. Once you have passed the Farm Shop and Go Kart entrances keep a sharp eye for entrance to Lupton House, dominated by the Lodge buildings and a wooden shelter bus stop (pictured below), which will be on the right hand side.
Take the drive all the way down to the House. Go slow.... the Devon potholes are a famous feature of this driveway!
