  • "The location is excellent but the cottage inside was quaint but rather impractical ."

    The kitchen is very basic, no cupboard for our food and the cupboard for the pans and china was difficult to access. The bedroom was fine but not much room to get into the bed on the wall side especially with a large mirror making the space even narrower. The settees were not very comfortable and the cottage quite draughty. The front door was awkward to open.

    Thank you kindly for providing feedback following your stay at The Pepper Pot. Since receiving your helpful review future guests will be pleased to know we have reorganised the kitchen space giving more storage space for food and making pots & pans more accessible. Unfortunately due to the lay out of the bedrooms there isn’t really anything more we can do to make the space bigger, we haven’t had any previous mentions of this so can only apologise if you found it a little narrow. We have now replaced 1 of the sofas and have bought new cushions for the other. All windows are double glazed; however the front and back door are both wooden, the owner has done everything possible to ensure there are no draughts. Both doors have had new locks and latches however the doors will swell on occasion depending on the weather, unfortunately this is out of the owner’s control, again, there have been no previous mention of difficulties with either door. Despite the points raised we are pleased you liked the location of The Pepper Pot. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away just a short walk from Lympstone harbour, is this delightful little cottage, The Pepper Pot.

Beautifully presented with a south facing bench outside the front door for a morning coffee, The Pepper Pot is a wonderful escape for a couple or small family looking to soak up the atmosphere of this estuary village.

The open-plan, unique living area blends simple living with a restful ambiance; the kitchen has a French look with copper saucepans and a Belfast sink complementing the wooden surfaces and original 19th-century furniture.

Curl up beside the woodburning stove and tune into the Smart TV for a cosy night in.

Heading upstairs, the main bedroom features a double bed with original beams and plenty of natural light.

The second bedroom features a single bed which can accommodate a third guest.

Discover the bathroom, complete with bath and shower over so you can decide how to prepare for the day ahead.

Within a short walk you’ll be surrounded by a wealth of amenities, ranging from great pubs and restaurants to village shops and fisherman’s stalls looking to sell their daily catch.

Just a short walk away is the Michelin star restaurant Lympstone Manor and vineyard owned by Michael Caines which is truly the perfect spot to experience the exceptional afternoon tea, an amazing lunch or evening meal.

Avid walkers can spend their time exploring the scenic walking and cycling trails from the cottage, scaling 26 miles along the Exe Cycle trail linking Lympstone with Exeter, Exmouth, Topsham and Dawlish as well as the South West Coastal Path which is the longest National Trail in the country.

You can leave the car behind as Lympstone station is just a short walk from the station, with links to Torbay, the South Hams and the historic city of Exeter.

With all this, plus the rugged landscapes of Dartmoor and Exmoor worth adding to the itinerary, there’s plenty to look forward to at The Pepper Pot.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Exmouth 3 miles; Exeter 12 miles.

Lympstone is a village and civil parish in East Devon. There is a harbor on the estuary of the River Exe, lying at the outlet of Wotton Brook between cliffs of red breccia. It is locally known for Peter’s Tower, a riverfront brick clock tower built in the 19th century which serves as a memorial by W.H. Peters to his wife. The Exeter to Exmouth cycle route passes through the village and is popular for commuters and brings custom to the shop, café and pubs in the village. Local attractions include Nutwell Park, Exmouth & Orcombe Point Walk and Crealy Adventure Park & Resort. Lympstone is 3 miles north of Exmouth and 3 miles south of Woodbury.
