How frequent are the trains?
Trains on the Tarka Line (Exeter-Barnstaple) run hourly through most of the day in both directions, Monday to Saturday (and approximately every two hours on Sundays).
How much does it cost? And how do I buy tickets?
Fares are great value. For example £10 Off-Peak Day Return from Barnstaple – valid on all trains after 07 00 on weekdays, and any time at weekends. Buy your ticket at the station ticket office or ticket machine before boarding the train (there’s no need to book in advance as the price is the same on the day). From Crediton the equivalent fare is £4.60 (valid after 09 30 on weekdays, any time at weekends – buy your ticket on the train, as there are no ticket buying facilities at the station).
