By Road:

Exit M5 at Junction 30 and follow A379 to Dawlish the ground is immediately after the roundabout under J30. Please note there is no parking on site, only a drop-off point.


Supporters wishing to travel by car must be aware that there is no on-site car parking at the stadium itself unless you hold the appropriate pass.

Disabled Parking

There is disabled parking available at the ground but this is limited so we would suggest that anyone needing a disabled space contacts the club prior to each game to reserve a space.

Public Car Parks

While there is no parking on site the Chiefs have made arrangements for parking very close to the ground. The main car park will be at Sowton 30, with pedestrian access over the new bridge over the A379 and is less than 10 minutes walk from Sandy Park.

This car park will be managed on match days by a local charity who will charge a small voluntary fee for parking, all proceeds of which will benefit directly this charity.

In addition when this car park is full, traffic will be directed to the car park at Digby Park & Ride very close to Digby Holt train station, and again is less than 10 minutes walk from the stadium via the bridge.

Residents Parking, Controlled zones

The Chiefs would like to advise all supporters that there will be a controlled parking zone on all roads near the ground including Clyst Heath and Rydon Lane which will allow parking for residents only and the appropriate pass must be displayed. Anyone found parking in these areas without the appropriate pass will receive a parking ticket. The zones will be clearly displayed and patrolled by traffic wardens.

By Rail:

One of the modes of transport not generally known to Chiefs supporters is the rail option. The main Exeter to Exmouth line runs right past the stadium and runs a very regular service on match days. With a station at Digby Holt and the installation of the new bridge over the A379, Digby Holt is less than 10 minutes walk from Sandy Park.

By Bus:

In conjunction with Dartline Coaches, the Chiefs have organised two match day special bus routes that will run at half hourly intervals from noon to 2.30pm prior to kick-off and from 5pm to 7.30pm after the game.

The two new services will carry the route numbers 77 and 78.

No. 77 will start from Chantry Meadow in Alphington and No. 78 will start at Exeter St David’s station.

The cost of the new services will be £3 return with a reduced rate for under 16s of £2. These prices will reduce to £2 return and £1.50 for under 16s from Topsham Road on route 77 and Polsloe Bridge on route 78.

In addition there are plenty of normal bus routes which bring supporters close to the stadium, but these are the only services which will bring you to the actual gates of the stadium.
