As one of the most popular coastal regions in the UK, Devon has long been a favourite choice for short breaks and holidays that are focused around rest, relaxation and days on the beach. That kind of holiday is certainly an option if you’re staying in the port town of Exmouth, where long afternoons on the sand with a Frisbee or a bucket and spade are always a much-loved activity. Yet, the traditional beach break isn’t for everyone.
Enter our Exmouth hotel, conveniently situated for a much wider variety of attractions, activities and entertainment venues, to cater not just for sandcastle-builders and sunbathers but also for walkers, thrill-seekers and action-loving adventurers. From your hotel in Exmouth you’ll be moments from water sports opportunities, nature reserves, the South West Coast Path, webs of cycling trails and local golf courses of both the mini and full-size varieties. On top of all that, Devon’s famous Crealy Adventure Park is just 20 minutes away!
If you prefer exercising your credit card to stretching your legs or testing your vocal cords aboard a high-speed roller coaster, then you’ll also find plenty to keep you occupied. Exmouth’s charming boutique shops will satisfy everyone, from the most discerning shopper to bargain-hunters on the lookout for cheap and cheerful souvenirs. Why not buy a new camera, and capture some lasting memories of your teenage son’s first attempt at windsurfing or of your partner’s efforts to tackle the famous East Devon Way?
Perhaps the most iconic of all of Exmouth’s attractions, A La Ronde is an unusual 16-sided house, a National Trust property that was built in the late 18th century. All ages will be able to find something that they enjoy, from a visit to the central Octagon Room with eight doors to choose from, to the shell-encrusted gallery that features almost 25,000 shells. A La Ronde’s grounds are also home to a number of rescue hens and to a tea room where you can sit and enjoy a traditional Devon cream tea.
Devon cream teas aren’t the only speciality product to enjoy during your short break or holiday. Also take time to try Devon fudge or to sample freshly caught fish at one of Exmouth’s seafood restaurants. The River Exe Café is a venue that is particularly popular with tourists, as it floats off-shore and is accessible only by boat for meals and drinks through the summer season.
Whatever you’re doing, whether you’re burning calories on the trails or topping up your tan on Exmouth’s beach, enjoy restful sleeps and great service at your beautiful Exmouth hotel.
