Location: Exmouth, Devon, United Kingdom. A weekend getaway to Exmouth proved to be an enticing trip in February 2019. Exmouth is a port town which has many seaside resorts. It is located on the east bank of the mouth of the River Exe and hence the name. A long weekend getaway to Exmouth proved to be an enticing trip in February 2019.

In front of the train station at Exmouth, there is a large M&S Shop where one can buy the groceries for the short breaks that one rents self sufficient apartments with cooking facility. We did the same! Then taking a short taxi ride we reached a ground floor apartment booked via Airbnb which has turned out to be the second best coastal accommodation among all (Psst! There is the best one coming up in one more of my other blog – The one at St.Ives Cornwall which is unforgettable for life for specific reasons). The beach is great to play in and is a sandy beach! Now that calls for a lot of castle building isn’t it??

The above picture is of the apartment where we stayed. It was a bargain given the time and location were in that too with a view of the river Ex meeting the sea as shown below. And the best part was it was sunny during the day when we went out and raining by the time we got back into the house in the evening…Perfect Isn’t it? The owner being an art lover, made it a cozy yet classy place to stay giving importance to the most intricate details of the apartment.

A very slow long walk on the beach which leaves you refreshed and then Orcombe point base welcomes you. We climbed up to get an aerial view of the amazing coast. The walk along the coast is interesting with many ice cream shops to add to the belly fat and quick eat joints as well. (This is a dog walk zone…so if you are allergic to dogs watch out!) A lot of 60+ aged people were enjoying a sunny walk along the promenade. Orcombe Point is a must visit and good to do a short picnic as well. We even saw a guy doing para sailing and Jet Skis were there as well.

Built in commemorating Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897. Wound by hand by a Council employee in the earlier days but then the mechanism was replaced and the town museum shows how it works.
