HOW TO FIND US

By Car, by Foot or by Cycle

Due to our unique location we do not have parking available but below are some ways to reach us.

 

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.

 

There is another car park approx. 3 miles from us located just by the Countess weir swing-bridge

Take a trip on the water

   Sea Dream Ferry

This Ferry, a 61 seater launch that sails several times a day directly to and from The Turf. Departing from Trout's Boatyard next to the Quay in Topsham, where there is plenty of parking, the ferry takes you on a 15 minute trip down the beautiful Exe estuary to our very own landing stage. The boat runs at weekends and bank holidays from April and then daily from mid May until mid September. Sea Dream also operates an evening service for larger groups, 20+, by arrangement.

 

For departure times and prices please telephone 07778 370582 or follow the Sea Dream link below

 

   Shimmer Ferry

There is another ferry in operation at the river crossing between Ferry Road, Topsham and Topsham Lock cottage. Running every day except Tuesdays from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm (tides permitting). “Shimmer” was funded partly by Exeter City Council, and partly by Devon County Council as part of their funding for the Exe Estuary cycle trail (www.exetrail.co.uk).

 

Shimmer can carry up to 12 passengers and 8 bicycles. Mike Stevens, the ferryman, also operates an evening service which needs to be pre-arranged.
