A contemporary country house hotel overlooking the Exe estuary with 21 luxurious guestrooms and suites, acclaimed fine dining cuisine by Michael Caines, a world-class wine cellar, 28 acres of gardens, grounds and parkland, and the beauty and tranquility of East Devon and the Jurassic Coast: Welcome to Lympstone Manor.

Hotel Details

Lympstone Manor is an historic Grade II listed Georgian manor house that has been creatively and comprehensively transformed into a contemporary country house hotel.

Situated overlooking the mouth of the Exe estuary, our 21 luxurious guestrooms and suites take full advantage of this wonderful situation.

To reflect this, they are each named after the birds of the Exe estuary. With hand-painted original artwork by local artist Rachel Toll as colourful as the birds that inspire each room, our guestrooms embody our vision of luxury, refinement, comfort, quality, and originality.

The majority look out on unrivalled panoramic views of the Exe estuary and across the verdant hills of Devon.

Lympstone Manor Restaurant


Dining at Lympstone Manor is an exceptional experience in every way. Here in the beautiful fine dining rooms of a Georgian mansion, Michael Caines MBE, chef/patron and one of Britain’s most celebrated and influential chefs, is able to fully express his vision of modern British cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, original, and exciting.

Utilising the bounty of the Exe estuary, East Devon and the Southwest, his faultless cuisine is superbly matched by wines selected from a world class cellar.

After gaining and retaining two Michelin stars for 18 years, Michael has taken a year out from the kitchens while overseeing the transformation of Lympstone Manor as well as other exciting projects. This has given him the rare opportunity to revisit classics as well as to develop new and exciting dishes.

Michael has long championed the outstanding larder of Southwest England. It is Michael’s brilliant creativity allied with his global taste and vision that allows him to transform the seasonal and regional into dishes of rare precision, focus and flavour. The numerous awards and accolades that he has been given over the past two decades is a testament to his brilliant creativity.

Lympstone Manor offers lunch and dinner in the main restaurant with à la carte menus and tasting menus available. Afternoon tea is also available in the lounges, bar and terraces. Please note pre-booking is essential.



The 28 acres of garden, grounds and parkland at Lympstone Manor extend from the Georgian manor house down to the foreshore of the Exe estuary, surrounded by the green hills of Devon. With a small team of dedicated grounds men who look after the gardens and working tirelessly in bringing them back to their former glory from days when this was a substantial and important private house. Surrounding the grounds you will find the ‘The Lady’s Walk’ a historic circular route developed in 1760. It extends around the boundary of our grounds which skirts the edge of the estuary where you can head out onto the shingle foreshore. The walk takes about 30 minutes, a perfect afternoon stroll.

In April 2018, the Vineyard is planted set between the house and the foreshore and planted with 18,0000 vines to produce classic Champagne-method sparkling wines for guests to enjoy.


Lympstone Manor is a place where you are totally in touch with nature. Enjoy walks around our beautiful 28-acre grounds. Or else explore parts of the South West Coastal Path and discover the Jurassic Coast which begins in nearby Exmouth and extends some 85 miles to the east along the Devon and Dorset coast. The Jurassic Coast is England’s first natural World Heritage Site, with cliffs, rocks and fossils that reveal detailed stories of Earth’s ancient past dating back 185 million years.

The Exe Estuary Trail is a cycle path that virtually passes through our grounds, linking Lympstone Manor with Exmouth to the south and the historic Topsham or Exeter to the north. Pashley bicycles are available for you to use to explore the area at no charge.
