Directions to the venue
You are making your way to your Sura Detox Retreat, aiming to arrive between 5 & 7pm on the first day.
See the instructions below for detailed driving instructions - satnavs rarely work well out here.
If at any point you get lost, you can call us on 1822 25 90 01 - We will try to be around the phone periodically, but we are also setting up the venue, so please leave a message if you don’t catch us, and we’ll call you back.
If you arrive later than 7.30pm, we may have already begun the introductory meeting and talk.
If we hear you drive into the gravelled car park, we will come to meet you there, or else find signs to where we are gathered - come straight in and we'll catch you up...

About half the participants will come via this route, and we offer a taxi share option to facilitate this.
Around a week before the retreat you will get an email asking for details like your train times, to sync up with the driver.

If you need to fly into Exeter, then our taxi driver will collect you from there also around for 4pm. this will cost £30 to and from the venue, which takes around an hour.
If you get to the airport really early, then you have the option of getting a cab or train from there to Tiverton Parkway - to join the remainder of those coming to us by public transport - it is around a 20 mins drive. Or you can elect to jump in a cab all the way to us - around 80-90 mins, and costing about £100.
If your travel is delayed for some reason, please let us know on the day by leaving us a message on 01822 25 90 01, and we will see if another alternative can be provided.
Also - please note that the arrival time is after 5pm. We all come together to begin our introductions around 7.30pm, so there is no great pressure to arrive too early, other than to catch the connecting taxi shares.
Thanks, and see you soon.

But for SATNAVS, you may end up passing Smythen Farm Cottages, and go 5 minutes further down the Sterridge Valley.
So if you're satnav drops you in a random country lane, you'll need to turn around, and come back up the hill a while. As the hill gets super steep and then flattens out, we are on your left - pull into the gravelled car park, and we'll come out to meet you.
As above, if you do get lost, give us a call on 01822 25 90 01, and we'll guide you in.
