Darts Farm Shopping Village

Situated just outside the historic estuary town of Topsham, nationally recognised Darts Farm offers a truly special shopping experience. The farm shop is a food lover’s haven with home grown mud-caked vegetables, artisan cheeses, organic bread, local wines, sauces, preserves, cakes, cordials, biscuits and more. The on-site master butcher, fishmonger and cider maker are all experts in their field and provide only the best local produce. Darts is also home to a selection of hand picked high quality retailers such as Orange Tree, Fired Earth, The Aga Shop, RSPB, Cotswold Outdoor, a florist, beauty therapist and Pilates studio, as well as their own restaurant, gift, garden, children’s clothes and toy departments.


Exeter’s compact and mostly pedestrianised centre makes shopping a breeze with a wealth of familiar and unique retail choices to help do some serious damage to your credit card. The historic High Street running through the centre is easy to navigate (only buses are allowed through), and features many of the big brand stores such as Laura Ashley, Marks & Spencers, Waterstones, Boots and Dingles, now part of the upmarket House of Fraser group. The Guildhall and Harlequins are two of the covered shopping centres, while the newly opened Princesshay hosts a collection of high-end brands and independent outlets. The cobbled atmospheric and ancient Gandy Street is the place for distinctive designer wear, crafts and unusual accessories, while the steeply sloping Fore Street has a collection of retro clothing, music and extreme sports stores. Continuing downwards to the bottom of the hill, the Quayside has a small but rewarding collection of gift, craft and antique shops housed in historic cellars and warehouses.
