Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Topsham, Exeter, Devon, England
On a quiet lane in Topsham, close to the shops, pubs and a slipway, a surprisingly spacious, second-floor apartment in a terrace of 18th cent. houses, possibly once warehouses. Split-level site, so almost ground level (4 steps up) front entrance. Lovely view from the other side, which fronts on to The Strand, over the quay and estuary to countryside beyond. Entrance to little hall; 5 steps up to comfortable living/dining room (TV/DVD) with the magnetic view that draws you to the window (window seat); compact kitchen (washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric cooker); two bedrooms - a double, and a twin (both with the view); bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Tumble drier in garage (parking for a small car). Convenient for Topsham's shops and restaurants and good cycle paths (cycle hire nearby).Please note these are 2017 property d... Read more

Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment was even better in real life, than on the pictures, a real home from home. The beds were really comfy, I loved the wooden floors, and it was great to have full TIVO and a good wi-fi connection. The kitchen was fully equipped and so was the bookshelf, including local OS maps, leaflets of local attractions and walk-books, including one by the owners.

My mum managed the steps with some arthritis, but I wouldn't recommend the front steps for those with balance issues or young children (under 8), as they are steep and narrow. Once you are inside, everything is on one floor.

On our first evening, my mum and I were so overwhelmed by the view of the estuary, that we spent several hours staring at the view; watching the birds and the most amazing sunset, with the sun shrinking to a bright orange dot of light, on the horizon.

I had arranged a visit from Tesco on our arrival, but later found that the local Co-Op offered a great choice for us until...

We wanted to be right in the centre of Topsham and this fitted the bill for a week long stay. We knew that parking is horrendous in town so the fact that this accommodation comes with use of a garage made it the perfect option. Entrance to the flat is on Monmouth St. Upon entering, the first thing that strikes you is the wonderful views of the quay and the estuary - gorgeous!

The flat is furnished with Ikea throughout and is all very functional, comfortable and clean. Kitchen is small but well equipped. There are two bedrooms: the main bedroom has a very comfortable double bed, second bedroom has twin beds - the flat is perfect for a couple or a couple with two children...would not consider taking it for four adults as it would be too small. Bathroom has good shower over bath. Flat has internet, another must have for us! Things that might be missing? Large bath towels, there were good quality towels there but if you like large bath sheets bring your own. You will...

Thank you very much for your kind comments. I’m glad to hear that you so enjoyed the location of G84. The centre of Topsham is indeed one of those places where parking is at a premium, so the facility of a garage is so important to help you enjoy your holiday. Thank you also for your constructive feedback, which we...
