self catering apartment in Exmouth, Devon

Number Seventeen

Coastal Waters

now renamed as



Exmouth became a popular Victorian retreat as a place to holiday and recouperate, and much of that Victorian facade exists today along with modern development typified by the Exmouth Quay.


Exmouth is on the western end of the Jurassic coastline which is a world heritage site. There are walks from Orcombe Point up over the cliffs, past the geo-needle and onward to Sandy Bay, then back to Orcombe Point, at low tide, on the beach taking in the typical jurassic cliffs on the way.


The seafront starts by the dock and runs up to Orcombe Point, which is about two miles. There is a relatively small and and low key "kiss me quick" element to the seafront, but there are regular cafe's along the way and on some days the "cuppa tea man" with his van is at Orcombe Point. There is a cycle path on this route which also runs in the opposite direction to Lympstone. Perfect cycling for those who dislike hills.


The town centre has most shops you could need throughout your stay, but larger supermarkets and departmental stores are a drive away just out of town or in Exeter.
