<b>Description</b><br /><br />Located in the centre of the village, Harefield Cottages is a delightful terrace of just six period cottages situated along a quiet lane, believed to have been originally Fisherman's cottages with sail lofts for drying nets. Purchased several years ago, this particular property has recently completed a full refurbishment to an exceptional standard, creating a fantastic home with the most amazing views of the Exe Estuary. On the ground floor is a high specification kitchen; fully fitted with integral appliances, leading to a downstairs cloakroom/boot room. The sitting room and dining area provides a lovely open-plan living space with wood-burner and a large window looking West across the garden and Lympstone beach, towards Powderham Castle. On the first floor, at the front is the main bedroom; again with stunning views, a fantastic shower room and a second bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Stairs rise to the second floor, where the owners have created a wonderful top floor sitting room with a large window where the best views of the estuary can be enjoyed. There is also a very useful sink with boiling water tap, and an integral drinks fridge. Outside is a courtyard garden accessed from the sitting room; a lovely spot to eat al-fresco and watch the sun set!<br /><br /><b>Situation</b><br /><br />Lympstone has a well-established local primary school in the middle of the village, with St Peter’s independent school on its outskirts. There are a gp surgery, two churches, four public houses, a cafe, a hairdressers and a store with extended opening hours. The multi-award-winning Darts Farm, a destination store selling local Westcountry food, drink and lifestyle products, is approx ten minutes' drive away. Lympstone supports a wide selection of clubs and societies, including lively sailing and tennis clubs, an active gardening club, film society and other societies bringing live music and drama to the village and fostering home-grown talent. 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.<br /><br /><b>Directions</b><br /><br />From Topsham or Exeter, head towards Exmouth along the A376, continue through Exton and past Lympstone Commando and take the next right into Nutwell Lane. Follow the road into the centre of the village, and at the bottom of the hill turn right onto The Strand. Continue under the railway bridge, past the Swan Pub and the lane leading to Harefield Cottage is on the right hand side, just after the Cafe.<br /><br />
