best slipway at the end of the M5?? exmouth area>
 
Looking on google maps Exmouth area is a nice easy 100 mile m5 trip from my gaff.
Can anyone reccomend a really good slip in the area?
Not worried about flush facilities, just good parking and good slip preferably with a pontoon for easy solo launching.

Exmouth itself isn't a single handed launching spot from my memory. Very steep or sandy options on the seafront.

Not sure what else is around.

Very steep and only 2 to 3 hrs either side of high water

Exmouth slip manhead is closed Poly steps @ teignmouth is best bet

Depending on boat you can launch from recreation ground at right state of tide. But trailer parking is very limited.

Watchet harbour is junc 23 m5. But tidal go on there web site for gate opening times,

Poly steps Teignmouth is good but when tide is flowing its a difficult one an nearly impossible on your own as there's no where to tie off too while you go an park.
Salcombe is excellent with a pontoon at end of the slip and plenty of parking.
Exmouth main slip is closed so their most popular slip is Shelly beach but really no good on springs as trailer has to be left on beach an you won't get down the slip without getting wet.
Appledore N Devon is also excellent with great slip, pontoon, plenty of parking an only a short hop to lundy island!
Lastly Queen Anne's Battery, Plymouth. Another great launch site.
Hope this helps!!

Torquay has good facilities and pontoons

IIRC Brixham is a half decent launch, long time since I've used it though, so things might have changed.
