Car Parking

There is free car parking on-site, and space to drop off and pick up. You can leave your car overnight as long as it's collected by midday the following day. Your vehicle is left at your own risk.

Public Transport

Stagecoach operates the 'number 3' bus service that runs through the centre of Yateley, connecting the town to Camberley, Frimley, Mytchett, Ash Vale, Ash, and Aldershot.

The nearest train station is Sandhurst (Reading to Guildford line), which is approximately a 30-minute walk. Blackwater station is too far away for most to walk, but is handily located next to a 'number 3' route bus stop.

Unfortunately, if you're used to services like Uber/Bolt/Ola, they don't yet operate regularly in the area.

A Community Project

In its first year in 2023, the Yateley Sausage & Cider Fest became another key fundraising event organised by Yateley Sports Community Interest Company (YSCIC). The festival itself is always run solely by a relatively small team of hard-working and often thirsty volunteers.

YSCIC is a not-for-profit community-inspired initiative, set up locally for the benefit of the local community. YSCIC also organises two other community projects - Gig on the Green and the Blackwater Valley Cask & Cork Festival.

Organised by a group of Yateley residents, the CIC's primary function is to raise enough money to build a sports & wellness facility for local residents, based around the local football club (Yateley United FC) - something that is now well underway. Notably, in 2014, YSCIC also completed the purchase of Sean Devereux Park in Yateley.
