Exmouth is a great place to base yourself to see more of Devon and enjoy Exmouth’s long sandy beach, ample attractions and family-friendly hotel choices. As a family, the best day trips would be to explore nearby towns and villages and visit some of Devon’s best attractions.
The public transport in Exmouth is excellent with a branch-line train service running to the nearby city of Exeter via some picturesque villages. Buses also run to many nearby coastal destinations. It could also be worth hiring a car if you’re planning on more than one day trip or trips to Devon locations further afield, such as Totness and Plymouth. Some attractions can be hard to reach on public transport.
Topsham is perfect for a half-day trip, located 15-minutes by train; you can walk through the historical village, view the estuary and grab a bite to eat with views. Dawlish is another fantastic choice. Explore the small town and relax on the sandy beach overlooking the Exe Estuary and Exmouth.
If you want all the transportation done for you, Stuart Line Cruises provide a variety of trips to nearby destinations, including Sidmouth, Torquay, Brixham and Exeter. You’ll sail along the Jurassic coast before stopping for a set amount of time in your chosen destination.
