Directions - Goffin Land - Exeter

Church Hill  EX4 9JL  .......... Directions & plan below

An oasis from the steel and concrete stress of the modern built environment based on 96 acres of meadows and woodland overlooking northern Exeter. Access by foot from Beacon Heath, by transport, from the hill line bordering the city.

“a beautiful site consisting of ancient woodland and long established pasture with views out to the Exe estuary. It really felt like we were in the middle of nowhere and when we occasionally came over the brow of a hill to catch a glimpse of the city it always came as a surprise”
Caroline Aitkin,
 (Colleague of the great but sadly late, Patrick Whitefield)

Goffin Land is just above Pinhoe/Beacon Heath.

The northern access is Church Hill,  Exeter, EX4 9JL. 

If you look on Google Maps with that post code you will see a drive running south off Church Hill - sometimes to Udder House, which is now called Goffin  Farm House. A sat nav will take you there, way past the Goffin Land entrance which is directly in front of the barn complex you see once you turn off from Church Hill.

You may see Mid Devon Chili Farm or Goffin Farm House, depends on the browser etc.

From Exeter take Stoke Hill to Stoke Post junction. Church Hill is to the right, sign posted Pinhoe.

From the North,  take the A396  Tiverton - Exeter road. Immediately south of the bridge after Stoke Cannon take left fork, Stoke Hill to Stoke Post where there are two turnings to the left. Take the second, sign posted Pinhoe. 

The first right hand turning, 300 metres from Stoke Post, is the drive to Goffin Land. At present a Stags FOR SALE sign is on this junction

The southern access is via a 400 metre bridle path from Pinwood Lane / junction of Beacon Heath & Beacon Lane EX4
