Jamboree 2018  //  28th June — 1st July 2018

Dartington is situated in South East Devon, a mile from the historic market town of Totnes.

By car:
From Exeter: From the M5, take the Plymouth (A38) road until the exit signposted to Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Turn left onto the A384 and shortly after the Dartington village sign, turn left at Dartington Church and follow for 1 mile. The main car park is on the left.

From Plymouth: Take the A38 up to the A385 turning, signposted to Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Then as above.

There is limited free parking available so we encourage car sharing or use of public transport whenever possible. You will not be able to drive your car onto the campsite itself. When you arrive you will be directed to the tennis courts carpark just across the road from the campsite or the overflow carpark at Foxhole. Wheelbarrows for moving camping kit will be available! 

Electric vehicle charging points:
Dartington have recently installed two free charging points for electric vehicles located in the main car park at Dartington Hall. 
Blue Commando (2P + E) – 32 Amp / 230v
BS1363 3 Pin – 13 Amp / 230v

By rail: The nearest rail station is at Totnes (on the main Paddington – Penzance line), approximately 1½ miles from Dartington (approx. 35 min walk/10 min taxi ride). There is a taxi rank at Totnes Station. There is a footpath to Dartington directly from the station which travels alongside the River Dart for ¾ mile and meets with the Dartington drive; the walk is undulating, uphill and challenging for wheelchair users and trolleys stacked with camping kit.

By bus and coach: Bus number 165 serves Dartington Hall from Buckfastleigh and Totnes. For timetables and information please call traveline on 0870 608 2 608.

There are coaches from London (Victoria Coach Station) and other major cities which go to Newton Abbot Railway Station. You can then connect with a train to Totnes. Some coaches go direct to Royal Seven Stars at Totnes.

By bicycle: There is a Sustrans cycle path running along the edge of the Dartington Hall estate, from Dartington village to Totnes, which intersects with the lower Dartington drive (that leads uphill from Totnes to Dartington Hall). A limited number of covered and uncovered bike 'parking spaces' are available on the estate. The Jamboree team can direct you towards these on arrival.
