Devon Sculpture Park is based at Mamhead Park (South), Mamhead, Exeter EX6 8HE. It is 3 hours from London and 15 minutes from Exeter.
Sat Nav will get you most of the way but let’s you down at the final stage so please print off these directions so you don’t miss the turning that Sat Nav believes doesn’t exist!
Mamhead Park (South) is just above Mamhead and Ashcombe, a few miles South of Exeter. From Exeter or the M5 heading South take the A380 and exit at Old Haldon Hill. From Newton Abbot or Torquay take the A380 North and exit at Mamhead taking the 2nd right turn over the flyover.
Follow the road signed Mamhead & Dawlish for 3/4 mile and make sure to take the first right turn to Ashcombe. Go straight over the cross roads and continue on the lane for 1 mile, passing Mamhead Woods & the Obelisk on your left. At the bottom of the hill turn left at the junction signed Mamhead Village Hall. The entrance to Mamhead Park South (which hosts DSP) is on the left after 300 metres. You will see a thatched gatehouse signed Dawlish Lodge and a sign for Mamhead Park (South) at the entrance to the estate’s drive.
If you find yourself in Mamhead village pass the village hall on your left and at the first crossroads turn right up the hill. Continue for 1 mile and you will see the entrance and thatched gatehouse after a right bend.
Follow the estate’s private drive and continue to the signed ‘PARKING’ area just before the church. Parking is free. All visits are pre-booked and guided so you will be met by one of the team in the car park.
Whichever way you come you can only enter the sculpture park from the southern entrance to Mamhead Park.
The nearest train stations are:
– Starcross 3.5 miles
– Dawlish 4.5 miles
– Exeter St David’s 9 miles
Bus services in our area are woefully inadequate. This is something we’re taking up with the local council.
