Located down a cobbled lane just yards from the foreshore and with views of the Exe Estuary from its upstairs windows, Cygnet Cottage has recently come under new ownership. Its new owner, Demelza Henderson, will be running it as a Christian Retreat house, particularly welcoming people looking for spiritual and physical refreshment. Perfect for Quiet Days, gatherings of small Cell Groups or Ministry Teams, or for longer periods of self-catering individual retreat, Cygnet Cottage offers a quiet prayer-space for all. With two bedrooms (one single and one double/twin), a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting room, as well as a dedicated second-floor prayer room, bookings are now being taken for rentals from September 2013. The cottage can be booked in a number of ways: as a whole for either day groups or longer overnight stays (min. 2 nights), or by the room per night. Prices are available on the website.
Lympstone is a tranquil fishing and sailing village on the eastern banks of the Exe estuary, easily accessible both by car (ten minutes from the M5) and train (just twenty minutes down the branch line from Exeter St. Davids and national mainline connections). It supports a thriving parish church, primary school, four pubs, a shop and a post office, and lies on the popular cycle path stretching along the bank of the estuary from Exmouth to Topsham.
