Directions from M5

This is our usual route from the M5 at Exeter to Tanglin.  There are a few variations including leaving the A30 slightly early to go through Okehampton if you want top stop for supermarkets (Waitrose, Co-op, Lidl) or fish and chips (choice of 2, just off main road). Going through Okehampton is 2 miles shorter but usually slower.

We generally travel through Bude unless the traffic is very heavy in which case we would follow the slightly simpler route shown below - it is 1/2 mile longer
