From The M5. Leave the M5 at Junction 25 (Taunton) and take the A358 Chard road. As you enter Chard, at the traffic lights continue straight on, signposted Axminster (staying on the A358). As you are nearing Axminster you will see a sign for A35 Dorchester. Follow this until it meets Axminster by-pass and continue forward a few hundred yards and you will see Hunters Lodge Pub on the right. Turn left opposite the pub onto the B3165 (Crewkerne) road. Three miles down you will see a sign for Hawkchurch and the Hotel sign.

From the A303. he A303 is a much improved road and you can either follow the road into Chard (then follow the directions above) or you can leave the A303 then you see the signs for Crewkerne. When you reach the centre of Crewkerne be sure to follow the Lyme Regis sign at the end of the main street (the B3165). This takes you through the villages of Clapton and Marshwood and a couple of miles past Marshwood the hotel and Hawkchurch signs are on your right. Take the right turn and head down the country lane and take the first turning on your left. There is a sign for Axminster at the crossroad and the hotel is 150 yards along this road and right at the fork in the lane.
