About Sara Gane
My wife, Sara and I have lived in Devon for over 13 years and this is most definitely home. We came back to the West Country having worked all over the UK but as they say life is a journey homeward bound.
Sara Gane purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Sara Gane chose Exeter
We bought this property because we love Topsham. The architecture, the range of fine eating houses ,its position on the River Exe all give it a unique vibe that draws you back time after time. Given that Exeter Airport is only 6 miles away and Exeter, the Regional capital is right on the doorstep it makes for a great holiday location.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is a lovely Grade 2 listed building set right in the heart of the historic port of Exeter .With a situation over looking St Margaret's church and minutes from the historic quay and waterfront it provides the perfect base for exploring Devon and Cornwall. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with a really comfortable stay in a spacious and well appointed apartment. Topsham has a unique blend of fine restaurant's and boutique style shops with a great range of sports activities on the door step.

Nothing like it showed onlibe
Apart from the challenging stairs to the apartment, we couldn't have been more pleased. Definitely on the list for our next visit.
aplace to feel happy no matter what the weather
I would return in a minute if I could.
We've had an amazing time at the apartment. It has everything you can possibly need. Perfectly located, and no problems parking, there's a car park literally 2 min walk away where you can park all day for £3 or free from 5pm to 9am. Beautifully decorated and very cosy. We will definitely stay again next time we're in the area.
Thank you Sara and Andrew!
Lovely apartment in a great location
Warm, comfortable, and hot showers - what more do you need?
Decent WI-FI for the kids - check
Close to good breakfast/lunch/dinner options - check
Friendly, welcoming host - check.
Two minor points, only one of which the owners could address.
1. Parking can be a bit of a pain at the “wrong” time of day - you may need to cruise around a bit to find a space, even in the car parks.
2. Secondary glazing could help with the street noise from early morning trucks/late night revellers.
These are only very minor points though - it really is a lovely, well appointed apartment and we would definitely use again.

Topsham is nestled on the East side of the River Exe and is the former port of Exeter. The town has a long and ancient history dating back to the Roman period.
Formerly a major seaport trading in cotton, the town is now of interest for its architecture with many of the houses being built using Dutch bricks which were brought over in exchange for wool and cotton.
Topsham has great proximity to nature reserves for wading and migrating birds with RSPB Bowling Green Marsh located on the Exe estuary, the whole of which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
It also boasts its own museum which is located in a 17th century building overlooking the Exe Estuary and displays the local history of the town and memorabilia of Vivien Leigh, the film star.
Topsham has unique character supported by many local independent shops and restaurants as well as some great sporting facilities with the heated outdoor swimming pool and local tennis courts nearby.
