1 The Quay

Lympstone, South Devon
Holiday Cottage

1 The Quay is a stylish semi-detached three-storey holiday cottage on the water’s edge at the end of a cobbled lane in the coastal village of Lympstone on the South Devon coast.

Set over three levels offering fabulous views to Powderham Castle and Starcross, 1 The Quay is a relaxing holiday cottage for couples, friends or families looking to explore the area.

On the ground floor is a comfy sitting room with wood burning stove, from which you step up into the dining room. The smart kitchen is small but well equipped for preparing meals.

Steep stairs lead you up and under a low door lintel into a double bedroom with those amazing views, then up again to a big bedroom under the eaves, this a twin that can convert to double, where you can sit comfortably and watch the sun set.

The views of life on the water are fascinating, or wander round to the estuary and harbour for even more interest.

Browse the shops and pubs in the village or head to Exmouth with its sandy beaches, traditional seaside attractions and town amenities, or the cathedral city of Exeter.

Parking is in a public car park (small charge applies) less than 400 yards away.

The pretty village of Lympstone is on the eastern bank of the estuary of the River Exe, equidistant between the regency town of Topsham and the family friendly, seaside resort of Exmouth.

The rich heritage of the village has shaped how the streets look today with over 70 listed buildings make a picturesque and little-changed village core. Lympstone doesn’t have a through road to anywhere else, so it suffers less than most places from traffic. The village’s pubs are popular stopping off points for these thirsty visitors.

Lympstone is a quintessential Devon estuary side village. It’s quiet, characterful and charming, an oasis of tranquillity yet teeming with vitality; art and social activity.
