Directions

From the city centre, proceed along Holloway Street in an Eastern direction (signposted Exmouth/Topsham). Before joining Topsham Road, take the right hand turning into Melbourne Street and proceed to the end of the road which leads down to Colleton Hill. No 2 will be found on your left as you look down towards the river.

Situation

The property is situated only yards away from the River Exe and moments away from the historic Quay with its eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. Pretty level walks and a seven mile cycle route are close at hand running alongside acres of public open space. The excellent Hour Glass Inn which has an enviable reputation for good food, fine wines and beers is within a stone's throw whilst the City centre is only a short walk away.
