February 29, 2024

Sandwiched between Somerset and Cornwall, Devon has so much to offer whether you choose to move to the North or South, but the common element across the whole of Devon is the beautiful scenic views – with over a third of the county classed as a protected Area Of Natural Beauty. In the south of Devon you’ll find Exmouth, with two miles of golden sand and a South West facing shoreline, Exmouth is the perfect combination of an idyllic coastal lifestyle, excellent schools and great connections, so if you haven’t had Exmouth on your radar, think again..

Exploring Exmouth

Exmouth is the starting point for a wide range of walking and cycling routes across this UNESCO World Heritage Site with its rich history of fossil finds and beautifully rugged coastline. You won’t struggle for local shopping opportunities either. Exmouth is host to a wide range of independent shops, an indoor market, and a recently redesigned and pedestrianised town centre around The Strand. Here you will find everything from traditional fishmongers to small art galleries alongside high-street names. One of the top English holiday destinations for more than two hundred years, the mix of Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian architecture, greenery, and seafront of modern Exmouth provides an idyllic setting. Enjoy a more relaxed pace of life, while at the same time, giving you the option of plenty of exciting things to do and places to explore.
