Map & local info
The China Tower sits in a wooded knoll above the Rolle Estate, surrounded by countryside and heathland. The stunning Jurassic Coast and Otter Estuary Reserve are within easy reach of here and perfect for fossil and wildlife enthusiasts to explore.
Take a stroll around the magnificent botanical gardens at Bicton Park, which provides a range of activities for all. If you are feeling more active, follow Exe Trail cycling routes to explore the area. It is possible to cycle to Exeter Quay, where there are plenty of coffee shops, bars and antique shops to explore.
A La Ronde, a unique 16-sided house built for the spinster sisters Jane and Mary Parminter, is close by and Powderham Castle, still the family home of the Earl and Countess of Devon, is located just outside Exeter, beside the Exe estuary. Six hundred years of history are contained within the walls of one of England's oldest family homes.
