However, some of these services run only during the summer months, once a week or even alternate weeks so the best advice is to use the following to plan a journey:
Carl Berrys web site - lists all the services to and from Chagford with detailed routes and contact details for the operators. Only the frequency of service is listed - there are no actual timetables.
The Traveline web site - Includes a journey planner that will return route details and times.
