Access and Parking
Car parking facilities on tarmac are adequate for about 25 cars. If a greater number is expected, please book ahead to ensure that a field is available. We ask the group organiser to send someone ahead to assist with car parking.
Access for large coaches is difficult. The width of the drive between the two front entrance pillars is 4.09 metres. As the main drive is at a slight angle to the road, coaches should always approach from the B3178 Budleigh Salterton – Exmouth road, turning left into the drive, and not from the centre of Knowle Village. For large parties, two small coaches are preferable. Forty-seater coaches with an experienced driver can usually manage the turn, but the coach company should be warned in advance. On occasions, parties alight at the entrance and walk up the drive, leaving the coach driver to find local parking in the village, which is not always satisfactory.
