Transport (water taxi) very well organised and the ride is a must! The restaurant is casual look but with a 360 degres view very comfortable. Ambiance and service very friendly. The menu is mainly fish/shellfish very fresh very good, nice desserts. I had a friend who is vegetarian and I would have like to have one or two more choices... More

There are many ways to explore the Exe, or to use it to get around. We have previously walked up one side from Dawlish Warren up to the Turf Locks pub, and walked down the other side from Topsham to Exmouth. By using the Starcross Ferry we enjoy a round trip, returning by train. There is always something to see... More

Beautiful views on boat trip, past Starcross, Lympstone, well worth the cheap price of 6 pounds for the boat tour from Exmouth, took about 90 minutes, lovely on a clear day

In the sun it is a playground for sailing, motor boating, wind and kite surfing. In the winter it is a mecca for migrating birds from Siberia and Scandinavia. What a wonderful place.

The Exe estuary is fabulous for outdoor activities. It is scenic, good for twitchers, walkers, joggers and cyclists.

Staff were very helpful and we enjoyed listening to all the points of interest. I think refreshments would have made the trip more special, or even a stop off point. We did however enjoy it fully just as it was.

Brilliant for cruising, fishing, bird life, and must see piece of the English coastline. Pick a lovely day and go on a bird watching cruise - you will not be disappointed.

You can walk/cycle along the river along the cycle track. There are lovely views, and during the winter the river is teeming with migratory birds as well as the usual wading birds if your into that kind of thing. There are some good shops and nice places to stop and eat in Topsham. If you are starting from the long... More
