Situation

Lympstone is a very popular village which grew from an ancient settlement on the eastern shores of the Exe estuary, building its reputation on maritime trade and agriculture. It still retains its links with the past, with local firm Inghams Fisheries selling their catch in the riverside Fish Shed. The village has a well-established local primary school in the middle of the village, with St Peter's independent school on its outskirts. There is a GP surgery, two churches, four public houses, a cafe, a hairdresser and a store with a Post Office. The award-winning Darts Farm, a destination store selling local West Country food, drink and lifestyle products, is a ten minute drive away. Plans are close to completion for a Michael Caines restaurant and boutique hotel at Courtlands, on the edge of the village. Lympstone supports a wide variety of clubs and societies, including sailing and tennis clubs, an active gardening club, film society and other societies bringing live music and drama to the village. The half-hourly Avocet line train service, with its beautiful views across the River Exe, links the village with Exeter's two main stations: Exeter St David's with its fast train service to London Paddington and Exeter Central with its service to Waterloo. Exeter Central station is at the heart of Exeter's lively shopping centre. The M5 at Junction 30 is just 8 miles away. The Exe Estuary Trail, 26 miles of cycleway along both sides of the Rive Exe, is a recent addition to Lympstone's many attractions.
