About Jo Huxtable

My wife and I have lived in Devon for over 9 years and this is most definitely home. We came back to the West Country having worked all over the UK but as they say life is a journey homeward bound.

Jo Huxtable purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jo Huxtable chose Exeter

We bought this property because we love Topsham. The architecture, the range of fine eating houses ,its position on the River Exe all give it a unique vibe that draws you back time after time.

Given that Exeter Airport is only 6 miles away and Exeter, the Regional capital is right on the doorstep it makes for a great holiday location.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is a lovely Grade 2 listed building set right in the heart of the historic port of Exeter .With a situation over looking St Margaret's church and minutes from the historic quay and waterfront it provides the perfect base for exploring Devon and Cornwall.

We pride ourselves on providing our guests with a really comfortable stay in a spacious and well appointed apartment.

Topsham has a unique blend of fine restaurant's and boutique style shops with a great range of sports activities on the door step.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Beautiful apartment, fantastic location."

We had such a lovely time here and would definitely recommend it. Topsham has so much to offer from amazing bookshops to crafts and antiques and the setting is idyllic.



"Well appointed apartment. Excellent, central location."

We thoroughly enjoyed our short break in Topsham, and were delighted with the very well appointed and recently decorated accommodation at 'Churchview'. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was spotlessly clean. The owner made a point of briefly popping in to make sure that we were happy with everything. We would thoroughly recommend this rental property.



"Lovely apartment, very nice decor, comfortable furnishings, well equipped."

As regular visitors to Topsham, we were delighted with our first stay at Churchview. Lovely, simple, fresh interior decorated with a beach/seaside theme. Beautifully done, well equipped, spotlessly clean with very comfortable furnishings.

This is a very well appointed apartment presented with great flair in a good central location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from our third stay at Churchview and on every visit we have found it to be spotlessly clean. The interior is very characterful with spacious rooms that are attractively furnished. Topsham is a lovely old town on the River Exe with good shops, restaurants and pubs. There is always lots going on to watch on the river - not just boats but a wonderful variety of sea birds.

Wonderful stay in Churchview, Topsham

  • 5 of 5

This flat is one of the best we've stayed in! It was spacious, spotless, and very well equipped. It was also very comfortable and nicely decorated. The location was excellent. Topsham is a great base to explore the surrounding Exe estuary area, with good bus and train links. All in all, highly recommended!

Delightful apartment in a delightful town

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, warm and well equipped accommodation. It is situated in the middle of Topsham, which isn't a big place. Yes, on Friday and Saturday nights we heard the revellers coming out of the pubs, but overall, the central location suited us fine. Topsham is full of brilliant eating places and lovely quaint shops. It has a great community feel and we experienced a warm greeting wherever we went. We walked the five miles or so to Exmouth along the Estuary cycle/walkway - a beautiful walk through more lovely villages and wide open riverside vistas.

Overall, a very comfortable place to stay.

Churchview, Topsham a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in Topsham. There is plenty to do and see in the town and surrounding area. There is a good variety of very nice restaurants and lovely shops to browse. The antiques centre on the Quay is also a must visit as is the bird sanctuary at the end of Goat Walk. There is also a very interesting Saturday market in the local hall. Local transport is very good, which was a must for us and meant that we could easily visit other places like Exeter, Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Dart's Farm.

We were very pleased with our stay at Churchview. The owners have really made a lot of effort to make the accommodation inviting and comfortable and of a very high standard. We had everything we needed and more during our stay. The accommodation is very well situated for accessing all the local amenities and exploring Topsham and the surrounding area. We plan to return very soon and would highly recommend Churchview to others, you won't be disappointed.

Formerly a major seaport trading in cotton, the town is now of interest for its architecture with many of the houses being built using Dutch bricks which were brought over in exchange for wool and cotton.

Topsham has great proximity to nature reserves for wading and migrating birds with RSPB Bowling Green Marsh located on the Exe estuary, the whole of which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

It also boasts its own museum which is located in a 17th century building overlooking the Exe Estuary and displays the local history of the town and memorabilia of Vivien Leigh, the film star.

Topsham has unique character supported by many local independent shops and restaurants as well as some great sporting facilities with the heated outdoor swimming pool and local tennis courts nearby.
