Lively Hope, Topsham, Devon
Self-catering riverside cottage
available for holiday lets
The Lively Hope is a uniquely positioned estuary cottage
that sleeps 4-6 with a small riverside garden located in the heart
of Topsham, one of Devon’s most popular and desirable towns.
It is available year round for family weekly holiday lets; short
breaks and long weekends; and for family gatherings and overflow
accommodation for Topsham residents.
The Lively Hope is a truly relaxing and special hideaway.
With its unique riverside position, it is a great spot to watch
the sail boats pass by on summer evenings, to enjoy the tidal estuary
as it ebbs and flows, and to sit out and watch spectacular sunsets
over the Haldon Hills.
For the past seven years, a pair
of mute swans has nested in the reeds literally just below the garden
wall, and successfully hatched an annual flock of cygnets. We
hope that they will return again this year!
The Lively Hope is located just off the Topsham town
quay on Ferry Road, a quiet non-through road that is at once secluded
yet just a stone’s throw from Topsham’s numerous restaurants,
pubs, cafés and shops. Indeed, there are four good pubs alone
within no more than 2-5 minutes walk!
Topsham itself is about five minutes off the M5 motorway
(Exeter Services exit) and mid-way between Exeter and the sea. A
destination in its own right, it also makes a great base for discovering
Devon and the Jurassic Coast.
