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

Having walked the original footpath from Exmouth to Topsham many times I looked forward to the opening of the new bridge cutting out the need for walking along the road to either start or finish the walk at Topsham, but for some reason who ever had decided to completely cover one side of the bridge with 2 metre high close...
