Topsham



Topsham is a beautiful village surburb of Exeter in Devon. It is a popular tourist destination in the summer months. With its small harbour and fishing and shipbuilding traditions it is noted for its Dutch style houses.


Once an important trading post for cotton, Dutch bricks were brought over from Holland as ballast and Dutch settlers provided the expertise and know how for the Dutch style houses with their Dutch gables and facades. 


With its village feel and traditional restaurants, shops and cafes it is a very relaxing place to spend a few hours strolling around the narrow streets.
