Lympstone Manor is a grade 2 listed Georgian manor set in 28 acres above the Exe Estuary on the southern edge of Lympstone between Exeter and Exmouth. Michael has creatively and comprehensively transformed this historic building into a contemporary 21 bedroom hotel and 60 seat fine dine restaurant.
“Lympstone Manor is the realisation of a dream, my vision of country house hospitality for the 21st Century.”
Michael Caines MBE, chef/patron
With Michael at the helm of lympstone manor, it is no surprise that exceptional cuisine and wine lies at the heart of the experience. After 18 consecutive years cooking at 2 michelin star level, Michael has built his reputation on a visionary style of cuisine that celebrates the seasonal bounty of Devon and the Southwest. Like Lympstone Manor itself, Michaels cuisine combines the classic with the contemporary. With plans to plant a vineyard on the slope leading down to the Exe estuary, the appreciation of wine – local wines from Devon as well as the finest from around the world – is a central element to the Lympstone Manor experience.
The stylish guestrooms at Lympstone Manor are all named after birds that live in and around the estuary, making each room individual with a true sense of place. Every room reflects its namesake, from the blue jewel tones used in The Kingfisher room to elegant soft grey textures found in the heron suite. The heron suite is one of two superior estuary suites complete with two side by side bath tubs and spacious lounge with its own gas fire. Many of the guestrooms at Lympstone Manor come with their own terraces or balconies to maximise on the hotels superb vistas. Three grand estuary suites and two ground floor master estuary suites have the added luxury touch of an out door fire pit and soak tub.
Michael’s vision of hospitality goes beyond decor and cuisine : it is about making guests feel incredibly special and completely at home, where your every need and desire is anticipated and catered for. Michael’s aim is to make a visit to Lympstone Manor one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life.
