The seasonal passenger ( and bike ) ferry across the River Exe from Topsham to the stunning tow path along the other side - the goal being The Turf Hotel - a wonderful family and dog friendly pub with gardens and views right across the estuary to the sea. Order a jug of Pimms, book one of the in-situ barbecues and laze away a whole day ! One long table is set out on a little jetty of its own right over the water's edge. Lots of tidal mud at low tide - beware children in new shoes ! cheered by the Pimms let yourself be tempted in some of the gorgeous shops in Topsham's historic high street.

Nearest beach

Dawlish Warren Beach (5 ½ miles)

The Blue Flag Dawlish Warren beach is an internationally recognised nature reserve. Famed for its ecological importance, Dawlish Warren beach is backed by dunes and sprawls for over a mile of sand and sea. As popular amongst wildfowl as it is amongst men, the beach is also protected by RNLI lifeguards in the summer. Can get busy in summer.

Nearest walk

Haldon Forest Park (2 ¾ miles)

Walking, cycling and horse riding in 3,500 acres of woodland near Exeter. You'll also find the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World here - an educational charity aimed at increasing our awareness and understanding of environmental issues, as well as a high wire adventure course and children's play area. Hungry after all the activity? The Ridge Cafe serves locally-sourced organic food and drink, or bring your own to enjoy in the picnic and BBQ areas.

Nearest town

Topsham (3 miles)

Some of the buildings here wouldn't look out of place in Amsterdam. The Dutch influenced architecture is a legacy from Topsham's days as a major cotton port trading with Holland. This pretty town on the Exe estuary is well located for visiting the area's nature reserves.

Also nearby

Shaldon (8 ¼ miles)

Shaldon is an unspoilt village situated on the mouth of the river Teign between Torquay and Teignmouth. It has a thriving livelyhood based on the estuary. On a clear day, Portland Bill can even be seen despite being 50 miles away. A pretty village with two churches, a boutique, butcher, coffee shop and many conserved areas for all to enjoy.

Shaldon village

Lovely walk with our dog along the estuary into Shaldon village with a few shops/cafes. London Inn pub by the bowling green friendly pub with excellent beer and food (Best to book for Sunday lunch). If you don't like the Hi De Hi type holiday with amusements and cheap trinket shops then this is a place to visit

Very English Shaldon

A little hidden gem this village right on the seafront facing Teignmouth on the estuary, nice stylish shops and narrow streets with a bowling green and several nice pubs with good food.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

Lovely pretty village, with a host of beautiful places to eat and drink. We tried the live music at the Ferryboat Inn, and had a lovely early evening looking out over the harbour from their beer garden. The shops were good quality, though during the off-season (October) I presume they have shorter opening hours (10-4 average) and some appeared closed. Everyone we met was very friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and refined.

Shaldon village life

Shaldon village hosts a variety of activities throughout the summer. There is a market on the village green in traditional costume every week and the well know water carnival where sand castle competitions and decorated boats abound. The highlight of the year has to be Shaldon Regatta, which takes place around the late summer bank holiday in August where everyone is welcome to enter and regatta boats are available if you don't have your own. Also five-a-side football, beach volleyball, swimming competitions and sandcastle competitions abound. Highly recommended.

Exeter Underground Passages (4 ¾ miles)

Built in 14th and 15th Centuries to bring a supply of fresh water into the city. Visitors pass through an exciting interpretation centre with interactive displays, have a 10 minute film presentation and a 25 minute tour followed by an opportunity to explore the exhibition.

Darts Farm (3 ¾ miles)

Ronald Dart started selling fruit and veg from a small hut at the bottom of his field in the 1970s.

You can get almost anything in the farm shop, from cakes, meat, fresh vegetables, salad, fruit and alcohol with a lot of it being from true local suppliers. There is also a deli if you want to grab a quick bite to eat. Would definitely recommend a trip to Darts Farm!

Great for West Country ales and ciders

Darts Farm is a really buzzing enterprise - there is so much going on here. If you are a fan of West Country ales and ciders, you'll be impressed by the huge range on offer here. They also have their own traditional cider press and ale house - time it right and you might catch one of the free tastings.

Good family day out

As well as pick your own, there's an animal corner where the kids can meet the farmyard animals. In summer, the field maze is good fun. There are also fishing ponds for those after a bit of peace and quiet!

Saddles and Paddles (4 ¼ miles)

Choose either the Exe Estuary Trail or the Exeter Canal Trail from here.

Take your choice, bike or canoe

A nice flat cycle ride on a tow path with two pubs en-route. The Double Locks is half way and Turf is at the end. Both serve good food.

Exeter (4 ¾ miles)

Exeter has always had real character due to its lovely cathedral, which is surrounded by peaceful green spaces and cobbled streets. The historic quayside is full of interesting shops to browse and cafes to while away an afternoon of people watching. There is a worthwhile visitor centre which traces Exeter’s history back into the mists of time.
