A quick drive along the A30 is the beautiful historic city of Exeter. It is the capital city of Devon providing the county with culture, education, religion and commerce. Exeter Cathedral, which dates back to Norman times hosts many events as well as religious ceremonies there is the Winter Fair with an amazing array of international crafts and food. Along with its shopping centre Exeter also has great places to eat with locally sourced food and specialities including cheese, ales and ciders. A visit to Exeter wouldn't be complete without a traditional Devonshire Cream Tea, taken either on the Cathedral Green or perhaps in a cafe on the quayside or if you fancy going a little further afield the beautiful historic port of Topsham is a quick train ride away. Exeters Red Coat Guides can offer a tour of the city whether it's an hours introduction or the famous Murder Mayhem or Ghosts and Legends tour. Let's not forget sport, Exeter has recently hosted matches in the Rugby World Cup at Sandy Park Stadium home of the Exeter Chiefs, there is also St James Park football and the racecourse. Many other events are hosted in and around Exeter including Radio 1's Big Weekend, The Devon County Show, Elton John in concert and many more Nearby is the 95-mile long Jurassic coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site and forms part of the South West Coastal Path. The picture-postcard village of Beer nestles in Lyme Bay with its shingle beach surrounded by white chalk cliffs sheltering the cove with its small fleet of working fishing boats. The breathing scenery of Lyme Regis are a little over 30 minutes from the property with its bustling harbour, array of shops it's also the home of palaeontology with plenty of fossilised evidence of life on earth millions of years ago. If your looking for water sports then Exmouth offers everything you are looking for with windsurfing and kitesurfing, sailing, paddle boarding to name a few. It also boasts internationally-acclaimed nature reserves as well as two miles of stunning beach that are a joy whatever the weather. Just a few miles South is the seaside town of Sidmouth, surrounded by green hills and red cliffs it has a Regency promenade, beautiful gardens and traditional local shops.
