Caught the Starcross ferry on the way across the River Exe to continue on the SW Coastal path. The sun was shining and the ferry filled up with people who had queued to get the first one of the day. Met people I had previously...More

The ferry is privately run and the staff can be very eccentric. Someone was eating and got told off with a diatribe about how tough his life was having to be nice to the public. Others suggested that he was being paid well for the...More

So. I went on the ferry with my mom and niece. Not the website, not the leaflet stated cash only. It was only when I walked the length of star cross, went over the train track and walked to the end of the harbour bridge...More

We decided to take the ferry over to Exmouth . Spend some time in Exmouth and then return back Starcross. This is a nice foot passenger ferry. You can take a bike. Pushchairs you have to fold down. The only downside for pushchairs and bicycles...More

Great way to cross the estuary, makes possible many bike rides for a good price. Not the last word in comfort and the facilities are basic but it's exactly what is needed at this location.
