Alternatively what better way to enjoy your stay than discovering the Gateway to the Jurassic coast. Situated at Orcombe Point in Exmouth an impressive stone geoneedle marks the start of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Geology in this area is second to none particularly as the rocks date back 250 million years to the Triassic period. Given that this is the oldest section of the coastline it really is a natural wonder.
The Exe estuary is also renowned for its bird population, in the mid winter there are 25,000 birds in the Exe estuary. Thousands come from northern Europe to feed on the rich marine life.
