The seasonal passenger ( and bike ) ferry across the River Exe from Topsham to the stunning tow path along the other side - the goal being The Turf Hotel - a wonderful family and dog friendly pub with gardens and views right across the estuary to the sea. Order a jug of Pimms, book one of the in-situ barbecues and laze away a whole day ! One long table is set out on a little jetty of its own right over the water's edge. Lots of tidal mud at low tide - beware children in new shoes ! cheered by the Pimms let yourself be tempted in some of the gorgeous shops in Topsham's historic high street.
