Location

From the Owner

Although in a very run down condition we could see that it could make a wonderful holiday home. In fact after we moved in we liked it so much we bought next door and did that up as well.

Special interest holidays:

The Exe estuary is famous for its migratory birdlife in the winter. There is an RSPB viewing area and hide 0.5 miles away.

There is now a cycle path which from Exeter to Exmouth annd on to Budleigh Salterton which follows the estuary runs through Topsham.

Topsham has its own public outside heated swimming pool, open from May to end of September.

There are beaches at Exmouth and Dawlish Warren, 6 and 8 miles away respectively. (it is now a 20 minute cycle to Exmouth along the cycle path.)

Travel:

Topsham is only 5 minutes from the M5 and 15 minutes from Exeter airport. Topsham has its own railway station (5 minute walk from Hannaford's Quay) which is a 15 minute journey into Exeter St David's mainline station, with trains running approximately every 30 minutes.

Distances:

Topsham is a separate town from Exeter with its own individual 'estuary' character even though it lies only a few hundred yards away from the outskirts of Exeter City.

Further Details:

As a consequence of Topsham being so close to Exeter city it is very much an all year round town which thrives during the holiday off seasons, unlike many of the other seaside locations in Devon which are sadly dead during the winter. Because of its scenic estuary location and hisoric architecture Topsham is a popular place to visit by the citizens of Exeter and its surrounds, and boasts many award winning restaurants, pubs and boutique shops.
