Wisteria Cottage is a light, bright and comfortable property in the grounds of the owners’ home, between Lympstone and Exmouth, an excellent base for a wide range of holiday adventures.
The ground floor is open plan, with a kitchen, dining table, and comfortable sitting area.
Sliding doors lead out to a decked patio area with table and chairs - ideal for morning coffee.
On the first floor, reached by fairly steep stairs, there is a bedroom with double bed, and an en-suite shower room with toilet and hand-wash basin.
Views of the Exe estuary and beyond can be seen from the upstairs window.
Outside there is a bicycle rack, attached to the cottage wall, where cycles may be stored overnight.
Wisteria Cottage is accessed via a shared gravel drive and has parking for 2 cars.
There are bus stops 100 yards from the property for frequent buses into Exmouth (a 5-minute ride) and to Exeter (a 30-minute ride).
For cyclists and walkers the South West Coast Path and the National Cycle Network Route 2 are only a few minutes away.
The Exe Trail is an easy walk/ride via Topsham towards Exeter city.
Bird watchers, and those interested in nature, will find the Exe Estuary Nature Reserve nearby and a trip to Dawlish Warren on the other side of the Estuary is highly recommended.
Within 20 minutes’ walk there are two National Trust properties, Halsdon Farm and the unusual ‘A la Ronde’ house.
For eating out there is a selection of pubs and restaurants in Exmouth as well as Lympstone and Topsham.
The River Exe Café involves a boat trip to the middle of the estuary and is very popular!
About the location
Exeter 11.5 miles.
On the eastern bank of the estuary of the River Exe, Exmouth has everything required by the visitor for a relaxing break. A thriving coastal town with a nationally renowned bird sanctuary, close to miles of sandy beaches, superb coastal walking, with everything for the fisherman and sailor, close to Exeter and with much to do and see - this all contributes to the town’s attraction. In addition to messing about on boats, lazing on the beach or taking the ferry up the estuary or to Dawlish Warren nature reserve, there’s always Crealy Park theme park, Bicton Park stately home and gardens, the Donkey Sanctuary at nearby Sidmouth, Woodbury Common, the cathedral city of Exeter, the Sandy Bay World of Country Life and the all absorbing Jurassic Coast with its famous fossil deposits stretching eastwards into Dorset. In terms of visitor attractions and coastal lifestyle you won’t find much better than Exmouth.
