Exmouth has been a popular holiday destination since the Regency period and is still much-loved today, thanks to its golden sands, lively town centre and variety of things to do. In a scenic seaside spot near the Jurassic Coast, but also with Exeter close by, it offers the chance to enjoy both the coast and the city. Our self-catering accommodation can be found in and around Exmouth, perfect for exploring the whole of South Devon.
