Directions

From the Topsham office, turn left and continue along Fore Street, Grove House is on the right hand side, before the mini-roundabout. This property can be found through the pillared entrance, a short distance along the cobbled lane, on the right hand side.

Situation

Perched on the banks of the River Exe Estuary, it is hard to envisage a location better suited to retirement living than that of the historic port of Topsham. With a welcoming atmosphere, an active community and Exeter just 3 miles away, its nationwide renown is justly deserved. Grove House is a small development of apartments and cottages in the heart of Topsham's charming centre and the location has been carefully chosen to ensure that shops, chemist, doctor, bus and train services are just a short, level walk away.
