Exe Valley Devon

The lower Exe Valley between Exeter and the pretty village of Topsham is a gentle descent to the Exe Estuary and the towns of Starcross on the west and Exmouth on the east side of the estuary.

The flat, broad flood plain is excellent for cycling and kayaking is a fun option on the water itself.

Exe Valley, Devon

The River Exe is Devon's main river. With its source on Exmoor in Somerset, the river flows more or less due south for about 50 miles to the sea. The river has given its name to many of the settlements along its course including Exeter, Exmouth, Exford, Nether Exe, Exwick, Exton, Exminster, Exebridge and Up Exe.

Dawlish Warren, south of Starcross, is known for its excellent bird watching on the estuary and the river itself is enjoying something of a comeback for anglers.
