Lympstone Manor is a Grade II listed Georgian manor with a fascinating history dating back many centuries. Thanks to the vision of Michael Caines, it has been transformed and now stands proud, a stunning building with breathtaking views over the Exe estuary. Comfort and quality are delivered in equal measure throughout the public areas, the styling being a fusion of classic country house with contemporary flair. Elegant and accomplished cuisine, augmented by a significant wine list, underpin the Lympstone experience, attuned to the surroundings with a choice of three exquisite dining rooms. Impressive bedrooms are luxuriously appointed with a number having either balconies or terraces with superb views.
