From Topsham head out of town on Station Road and cross the level crossing. At the mini roundabout, take the second exit. Follow the road past Darts Farm and at the next mini roundabout, take the second exit onto the A376, signed for Exmouth. Pass through the villages of Ebford and Exton and take the next right hand turn, after Lympstone Commando base. Follow this road into the village and at the bottom of Burgmanns Hill turn right. The cottage is found a short way along on the left hand side before the railway bridge.
Lympstone boasts a fascinating past and an exciting present and future. It grew from an ancient settlement on the eastern shores of the Exe estuary, building its reputation on maritime trade and agriculture and it still retains its links with the past, with local firm Inghams Fisheries selling their catch in the riverside Fish Shed and organising special fish-based events. The village has a well-established local primary school in the middle of the village, with St Peter’s independent school on its outskirts. There are a GP surgery, two churches, four public houses, two cafes, a hairdressers and a store with extended opening hours. The multi-award-winning Darts Farm, a destination store selling local Westcountry food, drink and lifestyle products, is a ten minute drive away. Lympstone supports a wide selection of clubs and societies, including lively sailing and tennis clubs, an active gardening club, film society and other societies bringing live music and drama to the village and fostering home-grown talent. The half-hourly Avocet line train service, with its beautiful views across the River Exe, links the village with Exeter’s two main stations: Exeter St David’s with its fast train service to London Paddington and Exeter Central with its service to Waterloo. Exeter Central station is at the heart of Exeter’s lively shopping centre. The M5 at Junction 30 is just 8 miles away. The Exe Estuary Trail, 26 miles of cycleway along both sides of the River Exe is a recent addition to Lympstone’s many attractions.
Located in the centre of the village, a short walk to the train station, shops and Lympstone Harbour, is this pretty 2-3 bedroom period cottage, presented in good order. On the ground floor, a stable door gives access into an open-plan kitchen/dining room, with a number of exposed beams and a newly installed Rayburn. A rear door opens into a shared access lane (only used by three properties) where there is a shed owned by the property and the owners keep a table and chairs. On the first floor is a bathroom and a sitting room, although it would be possible to have the sitting room on the ground floor, and use this room as a bedroom. Stairs rise again to the second floor, where there is a lovely bright bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, and a second bedroom.
