St. Christopher’s is nestled to the peaceful fringes of the vibrant seaside town of Exmouth, East Devon. Set along the stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coast, Exmouth is positioned where the scenic River Exe Estuary meets the Devon coastline. Whether seeking an active or relaxing holiday, Exmouth caters for all ages throughout the year and whatever the weather. Exmouth’s regency seafront and its two mile stretch of golden sands is a constant hub of activity and is perfect for paddling, swimming, sandcastle building, dog walking and even kite surfing or windsurfing. Enjoy a pleasure cruise up the River Exe and take in Devon’s rolling countryside as well as internationally renowned nature reserves where rare and native birds can be seen. There are fantastic rail and bus links to the Cathedral city of Exeter, Topsham or Sidmouth to name a few popular places. Nearby Woodbury Common is ideal for stretching the legs or taking the mountain bike; whilst the less strenuous level trail along the Exe Estuary is a must for a gentle walk or cycle. There are several nearby National Trust properties to enjoy or sample the many independent eateries, inns, tearooms and boutiques both in Exmouth and nearby villages.
St Christopher’s is a perfect bolthole for couples seeking spacious and welcoming holiday accommodation. Enjoy its added luxuries such as its own private sauna, access to a gym or snuggle up in front of the antique wood stove. The apartment, which is an annex to the owner’s house and is spread across a single level, backs onto open countryside and has been lovingly recently refurbished to the highest standards. Comfort and homeliness is found in abundance.

This property was excellent, possibly the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. It was very clean and well maintained and we loved the gardens and sauna. It was very quiet and relaxing.
Property was excellent, the best we've stayed in, great location very well equipped, decor and cleanliness was 5 star would highly recommend
This is our fourth holiday with Toad Hall Cottages and St Christopher's accommodation definitely had the 'wow' factor and having everything that you would require for your holiday which included all amenities for ourselves and our dog.
Everything was exceptional. Welcome pack superb.. Even a sauna. Couldn't ask for anything better.
A magnificently appointed apartment and the most gorgeous garden. The gymnasium and the sauna were sensational. We received a very warm welcome from the owners and the 'welcome pack' was superb and ... very welcome. We would definitely return.
We have stayed in many properties over the years but none have had the "WOW "factor St Christopher's did!
The apartment was absolutely stunning and all the furnishings and equipment were top class. The location was very peaceful with a beautiful garden looking out over fields. We had a lovely relaxing weeks holiday and anyone staying at St. Christophers Apartment would not be disappointed.
I have been staying in cottages and apartments for over 30 years although this is my first booking with Toad Hall. I have used New Forest Cottages many times and it was through them that I heard about you. In 30 years and quite possibly about a hundred cottage holidays I have never stayed anywhere as beautifully furnished and thoughtfully provided for as St Christopher's. Its 6 star accommodation in a truly beautiful part of Devon.
Very accommodating owners, made us extremely welcome.
A week full of superlatives! Thanks to Diana and Iain for their wonderful hospitality, kindness and beautiful apartment. The weather was a bonus. Can't recommend it too highly. We've already booked a return visit.
Thank you so much for letting us enjoy the beautiful apartment. We have had a lovely relaxing holiday and all of the home comforts and luxuries have made it very special. We loved the sauna.
Wow, what a fantastic place! So comfortable and everything you could wish for in holiday accommodation. Thank you so much for the lovely goodies when we arrived. I love good food and quality and this provided the best welcome pack by a mile. Exmouth beach is great for the dog.
What a great find St Christopher's is. It was a last minute decision to come to Devon, so we really didn't expect to find such super accommodation. Everything is here! Thank you so much.
What a great way to relax at St Christopher's Apartment! Truly a 'Home from Home'. The owners have thought of everything.
A truly stunning apartment and a lovely holiday. Thank you so much for all the thoughtful touches and provisions to make our stay so welcoming. We had lovely days in Salcombe, Lympstone and Topsham.
We would like to thank the owners very much for making us feel so very welcome and making it feel so special for our honeymoon. We have had a wonderful time and would love to return at a later date.
A big thank you to Diana and Iain for such a wonderful property; everything in it is 1st class and we felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel! If you have dogs and enjoy walking; or if you are a keen bike rider, we especially recommend Haldon Forest Park which is only a short drive away. We will definitely be coming back to St Christopher's. Of all the properties we have stayed in with Toad Hall Cottages, this is by far the best!
Thank you for a delightful stay at St. Christopher's. The accommodation was lovely and has proved a fantastic base for our many trips around Devon. We never quite made the gym but the sauna was lovely.
Fantastic apartment. Every need catered for. Diana and Ian have gone to great lengths to make this apartment special. The welcome pack was very 'welcome' after a long journey. Thank you also to Diana for the 'divine' massage - highly recommended. We will certainly try to book again next year.
Diana and Iain made us very welcome it was so nice to be able to bring our dog to such a beautiful apartment. We will certainly be back!
Excellent property, standard and hosts, with a nothing too much trouble attitude. Perfect holiday.
