From Exeter proceed on the A376 towards Exmouth. On entering Lympstone, at the traffic lights, turn left onto Wotton Lane opposite the Saddlers Arms public house. After 200 yards turn left into Tedstone Lane and the property will be found down the second driveway on the right, after half a mile.
Lympstone grew from an ancient settlement on the eastern shores of the Exe Estuary. The village built its reputation on maritime trade and agriculture and about 100 fishing vessels operated from the area towards the end of the 19th century, when Lympstone was particularly celebrated for its whitebait and the quality of its oysters. The village has four public houses, a well established primary school, village stores and a train service operating between Exeter and Exmouth. There is also a lively sailing club and a wide selection of clubs and societies. The village has its own website - www.lympstone.org and the village is on the Exmouth - Topsham cycle path.
