Coming from the East (A30) *
Take the exit for the airport: 2nd exit at first roundabout and 1st exit at second roundabout to Clyst Honiton, through the village then left at the T-junction into Honiton Road. After that it’s only about one mile before turning into DFWI’s drive on the right, immediately before the entrance to the Black Horse pub.
If you are using the old A30 road you will eventually be on Honiton Road and you will pass through Clyst Honiton. Look out for the Exeter Inn on the left (at T Junction) keep going for approx. half a mile and turn left immediately before the entrance to the Black Horse Pub.
Coming either from the north or south on the M5 *
At junction 29, exit onto Honiton Rd/A30 towards Honiton, and you will bear slightly left.
Drive to Honiton Road, and continue straight following the signs for Sowton Village and the Science Park. Continue onto Honiton Rd for just over a mile. Destination will be immediately after the Black Horse pub. There is a DFWI sign.
Coming from the West via Exeter *
From Exeter City Centre follow signs for the M5 and Honiton, B3183. Having passed the M5 follow signs for Sowton Village and the Science Park.. Continue onto Honiton Rd for just over a mile. Destination will be immediately after the Black Horse pub. There is a DFWI sign.
* The Firs’ Entrance
The Firs’ driveway is immediately next to the Black Horse pub. The driveway is quite narrow. The Firs’ entrance is at the top of the drive, right in front of you (not the property on the left). The car parking area is also quite narrow. It will make life easier if you turn your car round upon arrival. However, if you prefer, we do have permission to use the pub car park.
