Location & Surroundings
A more natural learning environment
We’re tucked away in the Compton countryside at the old Compton Mill Farm, near the Bickley Mill Inn and Compton Castle. Surrounded by luscious fields, farms, animals and nature it’s a stimulating environment for your child to learn in. To maximise this we have a large outdoor area that the children can access freely, and we schedule trips into the countryside regularly.
You can use the map to find where we are, the + and – buttons to zoom in and out of the map and the arrows to move around to plan your route.
Although it feels like we’re miles away from anything (which is just how we like it) we’re actually right in the middle of Newton Abbot, Torquay & Paignton, nicely situated for families based anywhere in Torbay and around Kingskerswell, Ipplepen, Abbotskerswell, Newton Abbot region.
Only a few minutes from the busy A380 (which runs between Newton & Torquay) and just minutes from Gropers Lane which is the main back road from Paignton, through Marldon to Newton Abbot.
If you’re coming from Marldon then take Gropers Lane (just go straight on after the Church House Inn) follow the road to Compton Pool Farm, just after Compton Castle and take your next right (signposted Bickley Mill) then take the next left and after about a mile we will be on your left.
If your based in Torquay, were only a couple of miles from the hospital. Just off the Torquay Newton Abbot road (A380) atThe Barn Owl you can join the Old Newton Road, through Ferndown Lane in Kingskerswell, right onto Maddacombe lane then left onto Bickley Road, which leads you almost straight to us. If you are coming from the sea front you can also come through Cockington and past Marldon onto Gropers Lane.
