Exmouth - A La Ronde

A La Ronde - NT

Exmouth in East Devon
map ref SY0081

Exmouth is a traditional seaside resort, with over two miles of golden sands and an esplanade - which runs the length of Exmouth's sandy beach to Orcombe Point.

The Esplanade has fantastic estuary views and provides plenty of activities for the children. At the center of the Esplanade is the Diamond Jubilee Memorial Clock Tower, surrounded by floral displays and sheltered gardens.

Orcombe Point and it's redstone cliffs mark the beginning of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site. The Jurassic Coast rolls east, through to Old Harry Rocks and along the coast - eastwards to Dorset.

Exmouth offers a range of coastal cruises and angling trips but if you prefer the job to be left to the professionals, you wont be disappointed in the fresh fish at 'The Wet Place.' Stocked with fresh fish and displays of sea creatures, there's plenty for you to see.

For the "keen rock-pooler", Maer Rocks is teaming with more creatures than you can shake a net at! As well as bathing, the seafront around Exmouth is a favourite for watersports.

The seafront is suitable for the more experienced kitesurfers and windsurfers as there is a fast, strong tide. For beginners, the Duck Pond is a popular place to learn the ropes.

Exmouth Marina, once a working dock with a connecting train link, is now home to an abundance of yachts, boats and the Exe Sailing Club. Also from Exmouth Marina, you can catch a ferry across to Starcross

A La Ronde

Two miles to the north of Exmouth is the National Trust property of A-La-Ronde. This 45 ft high, sixteen sided, Byzantine style, thatched house has twenty rooms set out around a central octagonal hall.

A La Ronde was built in 1795 by eccentric spinster cousins - Jane and Mary Parminter; both the house and its contents are a result of their Grand Tour of Europe.
