Hartridge Buddhist Monastery
If coming by car, please be aware that satnavs are sometimes unreliable on the small lanes close to the monastery. Please use the approach roads described below:
South/Westbound by Car: 500 metres south of A303 - A30 junction turn right, following sign to Upottery. Turn left at memorial in front of the church, then drive 900m towards Rawridge. Before first house in Rawridge turn right into New Road (‘no through road’), also signposted ‘Otter Falls’. Continue straight up for 1.5 km, through a farm, after which you will see the monastery sign straight ahead.
North/Eastbound by Car: Keep on the A30 past Honiton. 1.5 km past Monkton, take left turn for Rawridge. Drive 2.6 km to just beyond last house in Rawridge, and look for partially-obscured road on left (New Road), also signposted ‘Otter Falls’, with ‘no through road’ sign set well back. Continue straight up for 1.5 km, through a farm, after which you will see the monastery sign straight ahead.
Public transport: Take a train or bus to Honiton. From Honiton, take a taxi (the monastery is approximately five miles). Chris's Taxi is run by a friend of the monastery (yes, he's called Chris) and he will give a reduced fare for anyone coming here - call 07964 098334. There is also a County Council subsidised taxi service called Fare Car which operates at set times to/from Honiton, but only on Tuesdays and Fridays. It is much cheaper than a normal taxi but there are restrictions (it only runs at limited, fixed times) and it must be booked at least a day in advance. Telephone 01404 46529 before 4pm Mon-Fri only to book a journey.
