We get to stop 6a at half past the hour with the first train arriving at 10:30am and the last train leaving at 4:30pm.

There is actually quite a bit to do other than the fact coaches drop off at this stop and there being a long stay car park (not part of our park and ride which is at Maer Road Car Park – stop 1). You can set off on a walk along the railway line (OK, not actually on it, more besides on a little-known path) and soak in the views of the Exe Estuary before hitting the start of the official Exe Trail. You could also head towards the slipway and look at all the boats by the recreation ground which is used by the Exmouth Festival and fun fairs (to name but 2 events) that take place during certain times of the year.
