118 onward bus from Okehampton station

Did you know? It’s easy to use the Dartmoor Line (Exeter-Crediton-Okehampton) as a springboard to explore Lydford, Brentor and Tavistock thanks to the onward 118 Rail Link bus that departs from right outside Okehampton station.

Buses depart every other hour, timed with trains (Mon-Sat, some Sunday buses too).

Where to explore?
Visit Lydford Gorge, Lydford Castle, Brentor Church, the Pannier Market in Tavistock or the fantastic pubs along the bus route such as the Highwayman Inn, known as “the most unusual pub in Britain”.
