This enviable position is within reasonable access of nearby schools and day to day shopping facilities. A larger range of amenities is available in the centre of Exmouth approximately ¾ of a mile away. Sitting at the mouth of the beautiful River Exe estuary, Exmouth marks the western gateway of the Jurassic World Heritage Coastline which at this point is also a haven for birdlife, particularly sandpipers and the rare avocet. From here one can walk or cycle along the estuary and enjoy the charming riverside villages, breath taking sunsets, and an ever changing landscape. The beach has two miles of golden sand and distinctive, dramatic cliffs of red Triassic rock which characterise the East Devon coastline. There is no shortage of leisure opportunities, with sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, water-skiing, diving, tennis, bowls, cricket, river cruises and many more. The excellent facilities of Woodbury Park Golf and Country Club are also close by. Exmouth itself is a traditional resort with a promenade, elegant Georgian architecture and a bustling town centre with plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is also a good selection of primary, secondary and private schools, rail links to Exeter alongside regular bus services. The Cathedral City of Exeter is only 12 miles away with its Intercity railway station, international airport, connection to the M5 motorway and great business and retail opportunities with a modern shopping precinct, speciality boutiques, open air markets, restaurants, cafes and wine bars.
