G110 - Glenbar
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
in the same narrow cobbled lane (as G109) in Lympstone, a cosy, 'upside down' cottage with small balcony overlooking the estuary. Very comfortable living/dining/fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, gas hob/electric oven, folding dining table), ceiling to the apex, which takes up the whole of the first floor, with wood floors in the kitchen and dining areas; the living area (TV/DVD/video) has exposed stone wall and, at one end, glazed door leading to a small balcony (table/chairs) which has wonderful views across the estuary to Powderham Castle and Starcross. Downstairs (stairgate), two bedrooms – a double with en suite shower-room (power-shower, suite), and another double with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower). Under the stairs, a washer-drier. Public car park, about 400 yards. A good comfortable base, cosy all year round, and convenient for those who want to leave the car at home.

The West Country region
East Devon: that is Devon east of the river Exe and Exeter - Devon's capital with superb cathedral and much else attractive. Here is the most smiling of lush farmland and most dramatically hilly, the easiest to see from a car because the lanes are less narrow, the hedges less high. Domed hills rise abruptly and steeply, baize-green fields to crowns of woods or sentinel beech trees, half-way up farmsteads like a children's-book idyll. Woodbury Common is a small high moor with heather and Scots pine trees and fine newish golf course.
Exmouth is a resort with lots of sandy beach and boats. The Exe estuary is full of yachts and has one of Devon's prettiest villages, Lympstone, beside it. A shore of mainly pebbles keeps the area comparatively quiet, though the coast is attractive with white and red cliffs, pleasant, civilised towns like Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton and villages like Beer and Branscombe. Its inland villages tend to be pretty: Broadhembury is special - and the view from Hembury Hill (fort) is sensational. Hardly anyone seems to visit the lovely Blackdown Hills - big beech woods, smart fields with thoroughbred horses - on its northern border. You can have flying lessons at Dunkeswell aerodrome and there is an excellent (flat) cycle track, punctuated by pubs, from Exeter beside the Exe estuary to the sea. The whole east Devon coast is called a 'World Heritage Coastline'.
Lympstone: pretty and remarkably unspoilt village between low red-stone cliffs beside the Exe estuary (sailing boats, windsurfers). Harbour, estuary shingle beach, church, several pubs and shops, railway; stunning views. Exmouth (sandy beaches), 3 miles; Exeter, 8; two good golf courses within 4 miles. South West Coast Path from Lympstone to Exmouth (walk/cycle).
