Overview

No. 24 The Strand is an historic listed property built around 1600. The property has cob walls and together with number 23, the cottages are thought to be  the oldest in Topsham. Many of the original features and character of this unique property have been retained which means some low doorways and beams on the ground floor so those taller than around 5'8'' will need to watch their heads in places!

Light and bright with lots of interesting character features, this holiday house provides an excellent base to enjoy Topsham and the local area. Positioned on one of the most prestigious roads, the cottage is full of history and enjoys an ideal location in the heart of the town, next to the Topsham museum and just across from the River Exe.

The ground floor has a cosy sitting room with two-seater sofa and additional armchairs. A large bay window floods the room with light, as well as offering great opportunities to people watch. There is a flat screen T.V with DVD player and cable. Along the hallway is the kitchen with a traditional AGA at the heart of the room (a copy of Mary Berry's AGA cookbook is provided), although there is an additional gas hob and small convection/microwave oven for those who'd prefer. Traditional in style, the kitchen is also well-equipped with dishwasher, fridge freezer and wine fridge.

The kitchen leads to the dining room which is a fabulous room with large dining table and chairs for six. Guests are asked to mind their heads here with low beams that range from 177cm to 180cm in head height, but fine of course for sitting down and enjoying a sociable evening together. A door leads from the dining room to the small private courtyard garden with high walls - a real suntrap to enjoy an evening glass of wine.

The upstairs is accessed via the hidden stairway from the kitchen to an open and airy space. The spacious master bedroom has a King sized bed and views of the River. This delightful room is full of light and has plenty of space for storage and armchairs to relax. The second bedroom also has a King sized bed, whilst the third has a small double suitable for single occupancy or for two children. All are decorated in calm, tranquil colours that reflect the riverside location and make the most of the history and charm of a property of this nature. No. 24 The Strand provides ideal accommodation for up to 5 adults but can also provide flexible accommodation for families with children so please ask about suitability. A cot, highchair and stairgate are provided. The bathroom is also upstairs with a w.c, sink and shower over the bath.

Topsham is a popular location for families with an outdoor swimming pool and large children's play area as well as easy access to nearby beaches of Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton. Couples will enjoy the range of cafes, pubs, shops and restaurants on offer in this lovely town, all within easy walking distance. For the more energetic, Topsham lies on the Exe Estuary Trail which runs from Exeter to Exmouth. The trail, for cyclists and walkers, runs through stunning scenery, the RSPB Goosemoor Nature Reserve and beautiful estuary villages. The trail also runs along the western shore from Exeter to Dawlish. Bikes can be hired locally. The ferry trip to Turf Locks in the summer is a must and nearby Darts Farm offers a haven for foodies with a gorgeous selection of local produce on offer.

There is no reserved parking with this property although spaces are available along The Strand or the nearest pay and display carparks being The Quay and Holman Way. Topsham railway station is also nearby so a car is not essential. Just a few minutes by train or bus takes you to the beautiful city of Exeter with it's stunning Cathedral, wide selection of shops and restaurants as well as the bustling Quay. Sorry no dogs allowed at this property.
