With picturesque cottages adorning a narrow main street, Starcross is a large east Devon village on the estuary of the River Exe and is famous as the location of a tall tower that was originally a pumping station on Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s experimental Atmospheric Railway in the mid-19th century.

A pedestrian ferry runs between here and Exmouth during the summer.

Nearby is Powderham Castle
