Local Area: Exmouth
Exmouth is the Exe Estuary's main seaside town and is famous for its views over the river mouth and its beautiful sandy beaches. The western side of the town sits along the lip of the estuary and at its southernmost point curves around to the seafront. Travelling east will take you along Devon and Dorset's Jurassic Coast, famous for its wild beauty, ancient cliffs and the fossilized dinosaurs discovered along its beaches.
Exmouth is a well connected town, with the Avocet train line running up towards Topsham and Exeter and the Exmouth Road (A376) providing easy access to the M5 and Exeter. Woodbury Common is a stone's throw from the northern edge of the town, and driving east will take you towards Budleigh Salterton.
