In Somerset we have a Taunton run which incorporates Wellington and White Ball with a stop at Tiverton Parkway train station for those who prefer to use the train into School.

Crediton is the fourth route with stops at the Devonshire Dumpling (Copplestone), Crediton and Cadbury Cross.

There is an Exe Valley route which stops at the Ruffwell Inn, Stoke Canon and Exeter St David's station and a M5 route which starts at Darts Farm and incorporates a stop at Cullompton.

The final two routes travel the furthest with the Sidmouth and Heathfield Runs.

The Sidmouth route starts at Sidford park carpark with further stops at the Hare and Hounds in Sidford, Heathpark services in Honiton and Daisymount on the A30.
