Chapel Wood is 2 miles north of Braunton and signposted from Spreacombe. From Barnstaple take the A361 Ilfracombe road. Go through Braunton and Knowle. About 1.25 miles north of Knowle, take the turning to the left marked to Spreacombe. After 0.75 mile, at the fork, keep to the left over the bridge. The reserve is accessed along this road. Parking is limited so car sharing from the countryside centre can be arranged.
