Heywood Drive is a quiet residential area within the waterside village of Starcoss located on the banks of the Exe Estuary, and not far from the coastal blue Flag beaches and nature reserve at Dawlish Warren.
The historic Powderham Castle is just to the north of the village with its parklike grounds and gardens, where many events and concert are held throughout the year. There is also a farm shop and café, and the castle remains the seat of The Earl of Devon to this day.
Starcross is home to reputedly the oldest sailing club in the country and is also a mecca for train enthusiasts. The remains of one of Brunel’s atmospheric railway pumping stations is here, and the modern railway, following Brunel’s route, sweeps along the estuary a few feet from the water. Heritage trains often run through the village.
A scenic and flat cycle path takes you all the way to Exeter’s historic quayside along the old ship canal past the Turf Locks and Double Locks pubs. Haldon Forest Park is also close buy with miles of walking and cycling trails.
Amenities include a convenience store, pubs and primary school as well as a golf course and bowling club. Starcross recreation ground is very close to the property.
