We took a boat from Topsham down to Exmouth with Stuart Cruises and although a cold wind sprang up it was still very enjoyable

It is started just behind the Exmouth Train station. This town was named by this river, because it is built up from mouth of this river. However, I have enjoyed my trip.

We cycled from Dawlish to Exeter & then to Exmouth, intending to get the ferry back across to Starcross. We queued up in a bitterly cold East wind for 30 minutes for the advertised ferry only to be informed by a marina worker that it was not running to to the low tide & would be at least another 1...

We spent a marvellous few hours cycling along the river Exe. The (shared with pedestrians)cycle paths on the southern aspect of the river are traffic free, with a road to cross. Its relaxing, with many lovely places to stop off for a picnic, or there is a couple of pubs at the two locks which serve very tasty food. There... More

The boat trip was brilliant very calm in the exe so you wont get sea sick. Lots of wild life one of the crew gives a running commentary of all the types of birds and the history of the buildings along the coast its a must well worth £8 each.

I went for a business meeting there. Food a bit of a cop out, especially the peel yourself shellfish starter. Great venue and position, but too expensive for drinks and food. wont bother again.

Lovely walk nice views and plenty of cafes to suit all tastes but be ware of Speeding Cyclists!! Come on Exeter City Council do something about these inconsiderate cyclists before there is a accident!! Any one else think there should be a speed limit for cyclists on paths that walkers use with young children.

We walked round Dawlish warren one day and saw a good number of birds and lovely views of the estuary. On another day we visited Topsham and explored the old houses and quay and walked on the Goat walk and Exe trail down to Exton. We saw a huge number of Avocets in flight and lots of other birds and... More
