Beautiful and tranquil 2 bedroom house on estuary next to historic ferryman's slipway. Wonderful views. Peaceful garden. The perfect house in the perfect location. To view a video made by a recent visitor please copy and paste this link into your browser.

Ferry House is located on a very quiet section of riverside road hugging the Exe Estuary in the pretty village of Topsham just outside Exeter. It's an ideal location with easy access to riverside activities, Devon seaside, the perfect village of Topsham and the attractive, historic city of Exeter. Wake up in the morning and you will drink in beautiful views across the river to the floating grasslands beyond. Pop across the road to the waterfront garden to enjoy your morning coffee and then stretch your legs to pick up a few items from the village shops before returning for a healthy breakfast. Then call across to the Ferryman (in season) who will be waiting to take you across the river on his little ferryboat. There are some super walks on either side of the river. Or walk up to the centre of the village and take a bus or train into Exeter to enjoy first class shopping, eating and the benefits of a thriving city. Enjoy one of Topsham's fine dining experiences. Then home for drinks at the Passage Inn, or buy your drink from the pub and take it to the little garden house to enjoy your 'sundowner' in peace and quiet.

Special interest holidays: Ideal for birdwatchers, sailing enthusiasts, cyclists, canoeing

The perfect Christmas getaway

By Janet, London on 21-Dec-2023

We absolutely loved Ferry House. It was all you could ever wish for as a home-from-home place to spend a fabulous Christmas week. It was warm, it was beautifully decorated, it had a lovely flow - airy & spacious while being so cosy. And the views were just fabulous. The extra touches for a Christmas week were so lovely. The off-road parking was a huge bonus. And Topsham itself was just a magical place to wander round at this time of year - all festive windows, knitted postbox toppers, street decorations, shops & bars brimming with happy revellers, & so many little winding paths & old buildings to discover. We enjoyed the pub a few doors down, a lovely walk to Lympstone, a train trip to Exeter to the Cathedral's Carol Concert, & getting all our Christmas goodies from the butcher, the greengrocer, the baker, the cheese shop & the wine shop! Thank you so much - we will definitely come back again.

A fantastic discovery

By Marie Cribbon on 23-Sep-2023

Absolutely wonderful property - every need catered for (and then some!) Beautiful decor, off-road parking (in Topsham!) and great pub/diner just about next door - morning coffee in the bedroom overlooking the Exe. LOVED it - we'll be back! Marie and Colin
