How to get there
There are many routes to Walpole House, our favourite is from the main A38, head for Totnes, Dartington, Salocmbe & Dartmouth, a nice stop off is Dartington Factory Outlet, general open times are 10am til 4pm you can explore the world of glass making, to buying some bargains from the factory direct. They have a wonderful restaurant and other shops from toy shops, to home and bazaar and food and drink delights on site making a great stop en route.
