How to get there
Kilmington lies just off the A35 about a mile and a half due west of Axminster in the direction of Honiton. As you travel along the A35 from the east you will see, as you reach the top of a hill ,”Kilmington Services” on the left; turn immediately left after the service station, signposted “Whitford” – Coming from the west, turn immediately after the thatched 'Old Inn' Public House. Valley Farm Holiday Cottages can be found about 80 yards along this road on the left hand side past the church close to the willow tree. Axminster has a direct train line to Waterloo and Exeter, ideal for Londoners wishing to take a quiet break in the countryside.
