In describing Exmouth Muddy Stilettos wrote: "What’s not to love about a coastal town nestled where the Exe Estuary meets the sea, with two miles of golden sand, a 200-berth marina and great road and rail connections to Devon’s capital city?

"Exmouth has much for outdoorsy types with its long, easy-to-access beachfront, Jurassic Coast clifftop walks and the Exe Estuary Trail, but it’s the town’s increasingly swanky hospitality that’s putting it on the map."

Nearby Topsham also placed very highly, ranking in second place based on user votes.
