Beautiful location
Running along a section of the east bank of the River Exe and Estuary, Topsham's in a beautiful location between Exeter and the East Devon AONB. It's a great place slowly to wander pretty streets and the water's edge, dine in restaurants and drink in pubs. Relaxing stuff, reminiscent, in our opinion, of the vibe in Padstow in the neighbouring county of Cornwall.

Take to the water
We'd recommend taking the Topsham Turf Ferry from Topsham to The Turf and Turf Lock, or, in marketing-speak 'cruise the scenic Exe Estuary to the delightful Turf Locks Hotel'.

Powderham St Clements Church and Powderham Castle and Estate are a reasonable walk to the south.

Exmouth Orcombe Point Geoneedle, the start or end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is to the south. There's a fine stretch of this World Heritage coastline leading from Orcombe Point to Budleigh Salterton Beach.

Also, try the East Devon Way.

As the sun sets to the west, 'The Lighter Inn' in Topsham is great for a pint and some food in the evening.
