The Exe cycle path & walkway: Runs along side the River Exe from Exmouth through Lympstone to Exeter passing through some of the most fantastic views of the estuary and villages.
Exmouth is the staging point for Stuart Line Cruises which take bikes at no extra cost to stops along the Exe Trail. Near the start of the trail, you can also hire bikes from Exmouth Cycle Hire. Lympstone is the first village along the Exe Trail from Exmouth end and is home to amazing views of Powderham and Haldon.
Lympstone opens out from the shore with sandstone cliffs to reveal a picturesque village and still has many of its buildings and cottages from the 1800's. From Lympstone you walk or cycle past the marine commando base to Exton and then onto Topsham which is well worth a stop over. You can continue on to Exeter or jump on the local train.
Exmouth beach: Is about 2 miles away and is easily accessible by car, train, or along the cycle path by bike or walking. Miles of golden sandy beach with rock pools accessible during low tide & with all the traditional activities you would expect & lovely cliff walks. The promenade is two miles long and still has old favourites such as beach huts, swing boats, crazy golf, boating lake, amusements & the worlds largest OO Gauge Model Railway. There are plenty of cafes and pubs.
From Topsham why not take the passenger ferry over to Turf Locks (another pub) on the other side of the river and stroll along the canal towpath into the Exeter Canal basin, or have a leisurely lunch and catch the ferry back to Topsham
Local activities include swimming, fishing, jet skiing, surfboard/canoe hire, surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing sailing and boat trips.
