Situation

Located on the edge of the sought-after estuary village of Lympstone which offers ease of access to both the seaside town of Exmouth and the Cathedral City of Exeter. 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 is a well-regarded doctor’s surgery, two churches, four pubs, one cafe, a hairdressers and a village shop with extended opening hours. A Michelin star restaurant and boutique hotel is a near neighbour. Lympstone supports a wide selection of clubs and societies: 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 Rive Exe, is a much-enjoyed addition to Lympstone’s many attractions.
