From Exeter take the A380 towards Torbay. On reaching Newton Abbot, follow signposts towards Paignton and Brixham, which is straight on at the Penn Inn roundabout. After Newton Abbot turn right at the next roundabout, again signposted to Paignton and Brixham. On coming to the end of the dual carriageway, follow the A380 and the signs to Brixham. On reaching the junction with the A3022, continue straight ahead following the Brixham sign. Approximately 2 miles further on, turn right after the traffic lights into Langdon Lane, which takes you across the common. Then turn right at the bottom of the hill and follow signs to Dartside Quay.  Alternatively, if trailing a boat, after the traffic lights carry on for ¼ mile and then turn right into Greenway Road (signposted Lorry Route) and follow signs to Dartside Quay.
