Out and about in Exmouth

Posted by alan in Family holidaysExmouthDevon

Brian and I escape office life for the day!

First stop of the day was The Beacon and Louisa Terrace apartments in Exmouth. We met the owners at The Royal Beacon Hotel for a for coffee and a catch up. Two cups of coffee later and feeling a bit wired we wandered down the road to visit the Louisa Terrace Apartments. When we first walked into the main building we were feeling a little dubious of what to expect but once we were in – Wow! The apartments were really bright, modern and spacious and the view from the balcony was fantastic, it was everything we had expected and more! I wouldn’t mind sitting out first thing in the morning, enjoying my coffee and watching the sun come up. Next we wandered on down to The Beacon apartments and these were also a surprising delight especially No. 4 with beautiful wooden beams and large open living/kitchen area, although perhaps not ideal for the especially tall people out there!

Next stop of the day was 1 Windjammer Court, Exmouth. We were running a little early so decided to have a wander along the marina first – Brian nearly got blown away whilst he posed for some photos on the marina wall and a small moored yacht. Ready for some warmth we walked along to Windjammer.  Once inside we had a good nose around and can honestly say that our photographs of this property do not do it justice! The property was so spacious and beautifully decorated and the location superb. The view of the estuary was amazing and we sat for ages just watching the boats and windsurfers go whizzing by. I was really surprised by the amount of outside space that the property has and it would be great for a family.

We didn't get much time to pop into the town centre but from what we did get to see – mostly from the car –  the town itself has plenty of shops and leisure facilities and obviously most importantly the 2 miles of beautiful sandy beach! Some of the many attractions include a cinema, a theatre, many high street shops and an indoor market, as well as watersport and leisure centres, beauty spa and parks and gardens. Brian and I both agree that Exmouth may have become a bit of forgotten gem on the Devon and Jurassic coastline but we will definitely be recommending Exmouth as a top holiday destination in the future.
