Thoroughly recommend visiting this estuary which has a fabulous cycle/walking path from/to Exmouth town to Exeter city with pretty and characterful Exton, Lympstone & Topsham along the route, so plenty of places to stop, rest and soak up the stunning surroundings. There's also a regular train service so you can enjoy the view from the carriage if you prefer. The... More

Having recently moved to Exeter we have been discovering the cycle routes and areas around. Our route recently was to take the Starcross ferry. We had been warned before hand by locals that the man who runs it isn't popular with people and can be very rude in dealing with customers. For a person that has to deal with the... More

As per the other terrible review written on this ferry, the ferry owner does obviously like 'tourists' questioning his wisdom. And when they do, he is bolshy and rude. Not a nice man or his crew. I merely questioned why my fold up bike (a Brompton) was chargeable as it no bigger than a medium size rucksack, and certainly much... More

We really enjoyed our cruise right up the river and into the Canal. The tides are only right for this cruise two or three times a year, so that was the reason for going this particular week. We have done many Salters Cruises and always enjoy them.
