Holidays in Exmouth

Since the 18th century, Exmouth has been a thriving popular seaside destination with its 2 mile long stretch of beautiful golden sandy beach. Also due to its traditional seaside trappings of brightly coloured beach huts, an esplanade and plenty of fish and chip shops, it is a popular destination for taking a family holiday.

This part of the coast is also part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, meaning you have plenty to see and explore during your stay. When you have chosen one of our Exmouth holiday cottages, try taking a walk from the Marina to Orcombe Point where you’ll discover over 200 million years of Jurassic history and the stunning view of the ocean against the deep red sandstone cliff back drop.
