From the road beside the Exe estuary, most of the housing is hidden. From the river SX9780 : Cockwood seen from the Starcross ferry , or across the estuary, the extent of housing on the slope is evident.
River Exe
The River Exe rises on Exmoor and flows south to Exeter and The English Channel. Its estuary is a good example of a Ria (flooded river valley). It is tidal to Countess Wear, just south of Exeter SX9390 : Countess Weir, River Exe. More information LinkExternal link
Cockwood is a small village on the west side of the Exe Estuary in Devon. Lying between the villages of Dawlish Warren and Starcross, it is separated from the estuary by the main railway line between Exeter and Penzance, and is set around a small tidal harbour which boats must reach via a bridge under the railway line.
Cockwood has two public houses. The Anchor Inn which is on the harbour front and the Ship Inn, nearer the village hall. The Anchor Inn is over 450 years old and was originally opened as a Seamen's Mission. It was a haven for seamen and smugglers.
