The Turf is a true destination pub – getting to us is all part of the fun.

Due to our unique location you cannot drive to The Turf, and there is no parking available. Walking, cycling or arriving by boat to our pontoon are the options.

Local parking

Below are some parking options within walking distance.

The nearest car park is 0.8 miles or a 20-minute walk 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, a 30-minute walk from The Turf.
Both car parks are free of charge and are accessed from the A379 Dawlish Road.

Another car park is at Powderham Church (Donations for the upkeep of the churchyard are gratefully received). From here a footpath winds its way alongside the Exe Estuary, enabling you to take in the stunning views. A very scenic 20-minute walk.
