  • The space

    This cosy cottage is beautifully styled and has a neutral colour palette that feels very calming.

    On the ground floor, the open-plan living area is light and airy. Enjoy everything from breakfast to dinner around the dining table which is next to the window. In the evenings, sink into the sofa to watch a film on the Smart TV and if it’s little bit chilly, the wood burner will soon make things toasty.

    At the rear of the cottage is the well-equipped kitchen that has everything you could need to whip up dinner made from fresh, local ingredients. You’ll find an electric oven and hob, a fridge, a freezer, a microwave and a good selection of crockery and utensils, plus a dishwasher and a washing machine.

    Off the kitchen is a cute, enclosed courtyard patio that is furnished with a table and chairs, ideal for sipping a morning coffee or savouring lunch alfresco.

    Upstairs, on the first floor, there is a bedroom with a king-size bed, plus the bathroom which has a bath with a shower over, a WC and a sink.

    Another set of stairs leads to the second floor and the second bedroom which also has a king-size bed, but this is zip and link so it can be set up as two singles if you prefer (on request).

Local Info

The neighbourhood

Topsham is a small, historic town with a maritime past that has a distinctly cosmopolitan vibe. If you like discovering great places to eat and unique shops for some retail therapy, you can easily while away the hours.

For foodies, there are quaint pubs and award-winning restaurants where you can sample menus that feature local, Devon produce. Meanwhile, the delightful array of shops includes independent boutiques, artisan shops, galleries, antique dealers and superb cheese and wine shops.

Topsham also boasts an outdoor heated swimming pool, usually open from mid-April to September, that’s the best place to cool off in the summer and is equally good for a morning workout.

If you fancy exploring the local area a little more, the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail is ideal and there are plenty of local walks. Try the Goat Walk beside the Exe estuary, which is great for birdwatching and romantic strolls at sunset. Topsham also has a ferry service that takes foot passengers and bikes across the Exe.

Topsham is a good base for exploring southeast Devon including the towns of Exmouth and Dawlish which are fantastic for golden sandy beaches. If you feel like splurging, Exmouth is also home to the 5-star Lympstone Manor where you can book a meal at the Michelin-starred restaurant.

For history and heritage, head to the unspoilt town of Budleigh Salterton which is great place to discover the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The National Trust's Killerton House and Powderham Castle, which is a family home with 600 years of history, are also well worth visiting.

Meanwhile, the cathedral city of Exeter is easily accessible from Topsham train station, not far from the cottage, and offers a wide array of shops and things to do. If you like shopping, you should also check out Darts Farm which has a fantastic food hall and sells luxury goods for the home, alongside outdoor activities including a nature trail.

If it’s more of that stunning natural beauty that you want to find, the cottage is well placed for trips into the South Hams, Dartmoor National Park and Exmoor.

Getting around

It is most convenient to travel to the cottage by car and free on-street parking close to the cottage is possible (subject to the availability of spaces), as well as reasonably priced public car parks.

There is a train station that’s walkable from the cottage that will take you to Exeter or Exmouth and there is also a local bus.
