In the County famed for cider and cream teas nestles the City of Exeter, set in beautiful verdant countryside, surrounded by picturesque villages, historic churches, and quaint old inns, it is one of Britain's oldest cities and Devon's capital. The Medieval Cathedral is England's finest example of decorated Gothic architecture and visitors can explore the historic past by walking in the footsteps of Drake and Raleigh through the narrow, partly Tudor lanes. It is a great place for shopaholics, dining out and a lively arts hub with theatres and galleries.
Powderham Castle, beautifully set beside the River Exe, and The National Trust Killerton Estate are both nearby. The infrequently visited Blackdown Hills along with the coastal towns of Budleigh Salterton, Seaton and Sidmouth, with its world famous folk festival, are all a breath of fresh air.
Just a few minutes drive from historic Exeter, The rich and varied small town of Topsham is much savoured by those who visit, and offers pleasant river walks, a Saturday morning market, a heated outdoor pool, quality, character shops and plenty of quiet space to sit and watch the bird life or sailing boats go by. This is a super place to visit, not just for the scenery and shops, but also for those who enjoy good food, whether you want gourmet fare, a cream tea or just a great meal with your pint as there are two award-winning restaurants, numerous good pubs and teashops. The popular Dart’s Farm shopping centre is at the edge of the village or take the “Topsham to Turf” boat trip to enjoy a pint at this out of the way pub and meander along The Goat Walk beside the river.
