Despite its secluded position, Bernard’s Acre is only about 2 miles from the A30 dual carriageway which in turn connects with the M5 just outside Exeter. The nearest village is Belstone, and the town of Okehampton is about 10 minutes drive away.
Bernard’s Acre is reached by a narrow road, which ends as a track with space in Bernard’s Acre to park several cars.
