The bathroom, with bath and shower over is also on the first floor while the large bedroom with double bed and plentiful storage is on the second floor. The bench in front of the cottage offers a good spot to sit in the sun and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine. It is possible to park in the street within a few meters of the cottage although there is not a designated parking spot and there is a maximum stay of one hour during the day. Free parking is available in nearby streets and there is a paying car park (free overnight) opposite. There are also residents permits you can purchase from me at £2 per day. The surrounding area is largely flat and can be explored on the two bicycles provided with the cottage. Please note use of bikes is entirely at your own risk. Dogs (and cats) welcome but extra charge of £5 per night per animal to max £25 per week.More

Great location, nice decor, well equipped and dog friendly, couldn't fault it. TripAdvisor apparently wants me to use more words, but there is little more to be said.

The cottage is in a quiet courtyard just off the Main Street, so very convenient for public transport and the shops. It is well equipped and pleasant. The warning about the stairs is accurate, they would be difficult for a person with mobility difficulties

About the neighbourhood
Topsham is the perfect base for exploring the whole of Devon or just for enjoying all the local amenities. It is a sought after, vibrant, charming town bursting with history and heated outdoor pool, bowling green and tennis courts and a great variety of places to eat and shop.

There are two passenger ferries across the estuary and various pubs along the waters edge including the Turf Locks and the Double Locks on the canal. The whole area is well known to birdwatchers for its nature reserves. Darts Farm is an easy walk away and offers a quality farm shopping experience. Topsham is within ea...
Getting around
Topsham has excellent transport links. The train station is 400 meters from the cottage and has a regular service to Exeter and Exmouth beach. The bus service is also good and the airport is 10 km away.
