You really couldn't be much closer to the water; Beach Cottage is a real gem with the estuary practically lapping at the gate. The cottage is small but perfectly formed and very well designed... more

This lovely cottage is tucked away from the street and right next to the estuary. It is well furnished and extremely cosy with a woodburning stove for that extra ambience. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and furnished. My husband stated the double bed to be one of the most comfortable holiday beds he has slept in. Lympstone itself is a lovely friendly village with a very useful train station which gave us lovely day trips to Exeter, Totnes & Paington. If you like running, cycling or walking the Exe Estuary Trail is excellent. It runs through Lympstone and you can go south the Exmouth or north to Topsham, Exeter or even round to Dawlish. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a nice relaxing holiday that has good access to all the sites around the Exe Estuary & beyond.

We all enjoyed our stay at Beach Cottage so much we intend to return next year. The service we experienced was good with a convenient system for key collection allowing flexibility for our arrival time. The cottage had everything we needed and was furnished in a comfortable yet practical style so staying there with two little boys was relaxing. The bedroom overlooking the estuary was lovely especially the comfort of the king size bed. My only worry was the stairs which my youngest son fell down! Lympstone is a great village with train and cycle options for travel up and down the exe. The cottage is in a very quiet spot right beside the water, but just metres from the centre of the village with it's shop,cafe and pubs serving some delicious food and a drink to enjoy as the sun sets over the estuary.
