The nearest car park is 2/3 mile from The Turf, where there is limited parking available.

Exeter City Council operate a clamping policy in this carpark! Please ensure that you are parked in one of the 19 designated parking bays. 


The second car park is by the railway line at the Swans Nest 

Both car parks are free of charge and are accessed from the A379 Dawlish road, turning left at the mini roundabout at the end of the Exminster bypass.


Another car park is also found at Powderham Church  (Donations for the upkeep of the churchyard gratefully received). From here a footpath winds it's way alongside the Exe Estuary, enabling you to take in the fabulous views.
