Exmouth is a coastal town in the south of Devon, located in the south-west of England more generally. Settlement in the town can be dated back to the sixth century and was the victim of attacks by pirates during the seventeenth century. Thankfully, pirates no longer ravage the coast of Exmouth and living in the city today is a much more pleasant (and peaceful) place to live. Featuring beautiful sandy beaches and a picturesque seaside town feel, Exmouth has plenty to offer to young families or those with an interest in sports, with walks along the gorgeous beach, access to wind-surfing and paddle-boarding on offer. There are several excellent schools in Exmouth and its surrounding area, making it perfect choice to live for those with children. Exeter is only half an hour away, making the town wonderful for young professionals looking for a beautiful place to live after a hard day's work. Properties to rent in the area range from sprawling country houses set in gorgeous grounds in the nearby area, to chic apartments with a beautiful sea view, to pretty cottages and perfect family homes.
