  • Mr Cooper

    “The location is perfect to explore Topsham and the surrounding area.”

    The Apartment is wonderful and the pictures don’t really do it justice. The only potential issue could be if you struggle with steps. Certainly be looking to revisit.

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.
