The West Country region
England's West Country is a temperate region where rural land is surrounded by sea. There are stunning beaches (both sandy and pebbled) and soaring cliffs provide spectacular walking. For nature lovers, the Exe Estuary is a haven for bird watching and Woodbury Common - an area of heather and gorse covered pebble heath - is nearby. Along the spectacular Jurassic coastline are many charming towns and villages most of which have excellent pub/restaurants
Lympstone, is located to the immediate north of Exmouth and is a charming historic fishing village on the River Exe. The village retains its character and charm with cobbled lanes, fisherman's cottages, and delightful footpaths through meadows and woodland. At low tide there is a pebble beach which is easily accessible. The sandy beaches and facilities of Exmouth are just two miles away, and the historic city of Exeter is some 10 miles to the north - both are easily accessible by road, bus or train. A new cycle path has been opened along the river bank to Exmouth.
The Jurassic Coast path, Woodbury Common, Dartmoor and Exmoor are all within easy reach.
Although small, the village boasts a well-stocked shop, a post office, four pubs (all with restaurants), a cafe, a hairdresser, a railway station (with regular trains to Exmouth, Exeter and further afield). The village is vibrant and most weeks there are events, shows and concerts in the Village Hall and church for all to enjoy.
Nearby Exmouth is a vibrant seaside town with two miles of golden sandy beaches. The town centre has pretty parks and gardens and there are numerous tea shops, pubs, cafe's and restaurants. The sea front has miles of flat walking, and there are cafes and kiosks for refreshments. The prestigious Exe Marina development is situated at the mouth of the River Exe and has character waterside buildings, shops (including a superb fishmonger), a restaurant and cafe. There are boat trips and fishing trips leaving from this location throughout the season. Nearby Budleigh Salterton, Topsham and the cathedral city of Exeter provide charming and interesting venues for day trips.
