Central village location
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. Continue under the railway bridge, past the Swan pub and the house is found on the left hand side, just after the turning into Chapel Road.
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 heart of the village is this delightful 2 bedroom cottage, forming part of the old village bakery that was converted into three houses several years ago. Benefitting from a south-facing garden and a garage in an adjoining block, the cottage has been updated and modernised by the current owners to a high standard throughout to make a lovely home, or ideal holiday property. On the ground floor is a separate cloakroom, a spacious sitting room with gas fire stove, and a modern kitchen with bi-fold door out to the garden. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and shower room. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a pretty cottage with a garage in this part of the village.
