    “Lovely spot in fact pretty perfect all round.”

    Cottage was clean and tidy, well stocked with kitchen equipment. Warm and lovely clean comfy beds. Brilliant position to explore a very pretty and friendly town. Oh and some fab books, I’m book mad.

The property

Number 5 Exe Street is a stunning, three-floor, terraced property in the heart of Topsham, Exeter.

With the high street a minute’s walk in one direction and the river a few paces the other, Exe Street is a perfect, quiet backwater in the middle of Topsham.

The house is accessed up three small steps with a handrail.

Largely open plan downstairs,it has a mixture of new and antique furniture to ensure a comfortable and stylish stay.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, should you wish to whip up a roast (if indeed you’ve exhausted the local restaurants).

A smart TV/DVD with Netflix account, a Bluetooth speaker/CD player and plenty of board games and DVDs will keep you entertained afterwards.

Modern heating, double glazing and a gas fire should keep you warm and content whatever the weather.

A private pretty courtyard is to the rear, with table, chairs and parasol allowing dining al fresco.

Off the hallway is a downstairs WC, and a washer-/dryer.

On the middle floor is a double bedroom with king-sized bed, and a single bedroom, both with pocket sprung mattresses.

These share a family bathroom.

The top floor has a small, cosy single bedroom with a TV and glimpses of the estuary.This charming house is newly refurbished and has everything you should need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay at any time of year, within 400m of the main car park and train station.

Topsham itself is a thriving small Devon town with several excellent restaurants and great pubs including the Salutation Inn, just moments walk from the cottage.

There is easy access to the river for birdwatching, boating or walking, and even an open-air swimming pool in summer - all accessible within a few minutes’ walk of the house.

Either hunker down and enjoy local charms for a week, or use it as a stepping stone to explore nearby historic Exeter, wild Dartmoor or the beautiful coastline of Devon.

About the location


Exeter 4.5 miles; Exmouth 6.5 miles; Newton Abbot 17.2 miles.

The charming town of Topsham is set on the River Exe estuary and has been declared a conservation area due to the wealth of 17th and 18th century merchants' houses, many built in the Dutch style with carved gable ends. Within the town you will be delighted to find a selection of historic pubs and award-winning restaurants including The Galley Fish and Seafood Restaurant, which boasts panoramic views of the Exe Estuary. Foodie lovers will also enjoy the town’s food festival which happens every summer. The town also plays host to a magnitude of independent shops, galleries and the Topsham Museum is an interesting visit. From here, you can catch a train into the city of Exeter where you can explore the city walls which surround the centre and the Gothic Cathedral, or head in the opposite direction and soak up the sun at the seaside resort of Exmouth. Topsham promises a wonderful escape to Devon, where you can have the best of both worlds within a short drive.
