Other things to note

About Topsham
Topsham has been described in The Sunday Times as the 2019 top place to live in the South West. A beautiful river port with historical connections that go back to the Armada, the woollen trade, wine importation, and fishing with past links to Holland, Portugal and Newfoundland. Take the Topsham ferry across the river and walk down to Turf Locks Hotel for a real treat. Topsham is known for its bars, antique shops, Saturday Market, and riverside restaurant pubs. The Pebblebed vineyard is only a couple of miles away.

Getting around
Good railway link to Exeter and Exmouth. The train journey to Exmouth is worth a ride for views of the Exe and river Clyst estuaries. Topsham is on a cycle route that encompasses the River Exe estuary, one of the best cycle rides in the country. A ferry crossing between Exmouth and Starcross an important and enjoyable part of your journey. Within easy access to South Devon beaches and Dartmoor. The River Exe Cafe is a unique feature of the river Exe, reached via water taxi from Exmouth

Slipway in Topsham

“This is a gem of a holiday cottage, it is close to Topsham so that it is just a five minute walk to and from restaurants and waterside pubs and it is only a few minutes walk from the lovely little railway that takes you into Exeter or to the beach in Exmouth. The cottage is secluded and very peaceful, we listened to the birds and watched the squirrels.
Alex and Lynn are very friendly and helpful and are a great source of ideas of things to do and places to go. I can highly recommend it.”

The accommodation is in a nice location. A Chinese & fish and chip take away is only a few minutes stroll as well as several pubs and local cafes. Topsham , Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton a little expensive area compared to other parts of Devon but nice to visit and relax in and close to Exeter and all it offers. Alex was a very helpful and welcoming host. He had a long career working as a producer of Blue Peter so a very interesting host. Accommodation was clean and exactly like pictures provided.”
