Lympstone Manor, in Devon, is the hottest country-house opening of the year. But don’t go expecting ancestral oil paintings, or even a spa or pool. Its killer ingredient is its owner, Michael Caines, one of the most talented chefs in Britain, and he reckons he’s created the ultimate spot for a foodie weekend.
Caines, 48, held two Michelin stars at Gidleigh Park, on Dartmoor, for 18 consecutive years, during which time it was twice named Britain’s best restaurant by The Sunday Times. Prime ministers, rock stars and royalty swooned over his modern British cuisine.
Lympstone Manor is a 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.
