Description

A 200-year-old cottage in the picturesque riverside village of Lympstone. Set in the centre of this beautiful Devon village surrounded by three pubs serving excellent food and close to the harbour and cycle path linking with neighbouring Exmouth and historic Topsham. The cottage has two bedrooms, one double and one with bunk beds. A shower room and a fully fitted kitchen with washer drier. Next door is the local convenience store and opposite is the popular Swan Inn and the village rail way station running every half an hour into Exmouth or Exeter. This is an ideal location for walkers and cyclists with easy access to the River Exe cycle path which runs around the edge of the river from Exmouth to Exeter and then along to Starcross with Ferries running at regular intervals. The popular family resort of Exmouth is just two miles away by road, rail or footpath offering two miles of golden sands.

Location description from owner

The England region

7 Brookfield Cottages is in the beautiful riverside fishing village of Lympstone in East Devon. There is a small boat harbour just a few yards away and the local fisherman operates a fish store offering fresh fish from his latest catch.

Lympstone

The Puffing Billy at Exton (5 minutes by car) or a 20-minute walk along the cycle track, is also excellent. We would recommend you book just to make sure.

The Turf Locks Hotel has extensive gardens alongside the river and canal. The Hotel is on the opposite side of the estuary and is only accessed via a footpath, cycle route or by boat. You can take a ferry from Topsham to the Turf, or catch a ferry from Exmouth and walk or cycle the three miles from Starcross to Turf. The hotel is only open on the Summer season – Easter to September – but has an excellent reputation for good food. There are large gardens to relax in alongside the Exe estuary and the picturesque Exeter canal.

The River Exe Cafe is relatively new to the River Exe but is attracting a huge following with visitors travelling from around the country to sample the excellent food in unique surroundings. The cafe (only open in season or by special request) is situated in the centre of the estuary with views over the coastlines of East Devon and Teignbridge.

Fisherman Jason Ingham with his boat the Compass Rose provides the village with fresh, locally-caught fish.

Depending on the tide and weather conditions, the village’s fish store has a range of fresh catches for sale. Fisherman Jason Ingham will be pleased to fillet your fish as you wait.

The nearby town of Exmouth also has some fine eateries, including Les Saveurs in Tower Street where the owners Olivier Guyard and Sheila Guyard-Mulkerrin were voted Top Restaurant after a TV contest called Kitchen Wars run by Marco Pierre White earlier this year (2012).

There are also many other top restaurants including a national award-winning fish and chip shop – Krispies in Exeter Road.

Plenty to see and do.

Every year on the first Saturday in August the village celebrates the Furry Dance when tradition states that fish were exchanged for furs from North America.

The village has many organisations and clubs and has a number of thriving youth groups such as a Junior Tennis Club, Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Brownies, Football and Sailing.

The Lympstone Sailing Club stands alongside the village’s boat shelter and at high tide is a hive of activity.

At weekends and on sunny evenings the village is kept busy with visitors on foot and on bikes as families and individuals from Exeter and Exmouth make use of the new cycle path which runs alongside the estuary.

It is possible to complete a circular course from Lympstone to Exmouth and over to Starcross on the ferry and then along the estuary towards Exeter with stops at the Turf Locks Hotel or further north at the Double Locks public house. Both offer extensive menus and real ale.

Cyclists and walkers can cross the river at Countess Wear and make their way towards Topsham for the return journey along the cycle path to Lympstone. A shorter route would be to catch the Topsham to Turf ferry (Tides permitted) and return to Lympstone from Topsham.

If your legs can do with a rest you can always catch the train from Topsham to Lympstone Village.

“Delightful cottage in the village centre”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2017

7 Brookfield Cottage is a small cottage but really well designed. There's plenty of storage, a well equipped kitchen, great shower, comfy double bed in the main bedroom and a good bunk in the second bedroom. Very clean and warm. The location is really central and it's great to be able to walk out the door to the harbour, cycle path, pubs and shop. This was our second stay which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words. Reviews like this are very helpful.
