I have been to the River Exe and towns situated on the Exe hundreds of times and never get bored. If you like river trips it is brilliant, and if you like bird watching it is fantastic. So much to see and every season it changes.

We enjoyed our River Cruise, the commentator has a lovely clear voice, very knowledgeable and made it interesting. This cruise is well worth the money, we paid £5 because we were on a Coach Trip, if not the cost is £6. We sat on the top and a blanket was supplied if needed. We needed this blanket on the way...

From our caravan at Dawlish Warren we walked to Starcross, the route is almost completely along footpaths or cyclepaths with very little walking in the road. At Cockwood there are two pubs for refreshment , and the Atmospheric Railway pub at Starcross, as well as the West Bank charity shop serving tea and coffee. The ferry trip across to Exmouth... More

It was very peaceful and beautiful with lots of bird life and boats to look at. The residential area around the seafront (harbour development) was interesting to walk around and had a nice atmosphere.
