Situation

Topsham remains an estuary town of nationwide renown, reflected in its characterful period cottages and houses, perfectly blended with a range of more modern homes. Its excellent amenities range from a splendid individual-styled parade of shops, to churches, restaurants, several pubs, a school, as well as a bowling and sailing club. There is also a frequent bus service and a train link between Exmouth and Exeter. Topsham is only 6 miles from Exeter Airport with regular flights to City Airport as well as many other destinations. The town was listed at the time of Domesday as 'Topeshant' and flourished as an estuary port for nigh on five centuries. Topsham also became world-renowned for ship-building reaching its zenith between 1750 and 1870.
