Douste's House blue plaque in Exmouth

This was the location of Pratteshide (Pratt’s landing place) from where the ancient ferry Exmouth to Starcross, with royal concession, operated for many centuries. Nearby stood Douste's House, built by Roger Douste prior to 1240 AD, where all shipping dues and ferry rents were paid. In the late 19th century, the area became known as Mona Island, named after one of the cottages on the site.
