Woody Bay Station is located on the A39, about half-way between Blackmoor Gate and Lynton.


From the M5, turn off at junction 27 (Tiverton) and follow the A361 'North Devon Link Road' to South Molton. At the North Aller Roundabout (Aller Cross) take the third exit - the A399 signposted Combe Martin, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. There is also a second signpost indicating Brayford and Blackmoor Gate and a "Brown Tourist Sign" for Exmoor via Blackmoor Gate which includes Lynton Cliff Railway.

At Blackmoor Gate, turn right onto the A39 towards Lynton - where the Cliff Railway is again signposted.

After about 4.5 miles, Woody Bay Station will appear on your left.
