Jules & Den

Den & Jules hosts

The Old Dairy B&B is a charming, characterful property converted from the original 18th Century dairy, which has undergone extensive and tasteful refurbishment. We have three well-appointed and tastefully furnished rooms. Our light and spacious self-catering cottage, formerly a barn, is adjacent to our B&B with two bedrooms sleeping up to four guests.

Lympstone is an idyllic village situated on the Exe Estuary with a pretty fishing harbour, four thriving pubs, tea room and Michael Caines’ Michelin Star, Lympstone Manor. The golden sands of Exmouth Beach, the most western point of the Jurassic Coast, are just two miles away, the historic Cathedral City of Exeter is just eight miles and we are within half an hour of the breathtaking Dartmoor National Park. Being right on the South West Coast Path and Exe Estuary Cycle Trail make us an ideal base for walkers and cyclists.

With plenty of secure off road parking, electric vehicle charging point, bike storage and a regular bus and train service from the village The Old Dairy provides the perfect base for exploring the very best of the area.

“As with most things in life, it’s the little things that make the difference and this is something that Den & Jules do really well. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, well-appointed and a warm welcome. Thank you.”

A wonderful find in the lovely village of Lympstone. Byre cottage was a fantastic base for our family to enjoy our week in Devon. Jules and Den were lovely, friendly and welcoming hosts to what was an immaculate and well equipped cottage. A short walk to Lympstone harbour with its lovely views, pubs and restaurants was a fab start to the holiday to then visit further afield and enjoy the beautiful beaches nearby. A thoroughly recommended cottage that we would certainly re-visit.

We stayed in the Devonshire room which was spotless and a great layout for us, having the sofa and TV in the room as we stayed for 5 nights. Jules and Den were the perfect hosts and their knowledge of the local and wider area was so useful and we used a number of their recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit. The whole house is lovely and having tea and cake on arrival was so welcoming. The breakfast was lovely, we had a full English every day which was cooked beautifully and all locally sourced. Lympstone itself is great as it has its own train station giving easy, regular access to other areas. Great walking and cycling routes too which easily accessible in the area.

Jules & Den we’re very welcoming, the B & B is immaculate and is a credit to them this is the best B & B we have stayed in. We stayed for 2 nights in the Hereford room this was beautiful and spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The gardens were also beautiful done with all the herbs, flowers and little touches. We would definitely recommend coming here and we will be back. 😊

We stayed here last month for a weekend break walking as we know the area , Jules an Den made us very welcoming, our room was immaculate and clean. However just a few things weren't quite right, in our room we could hear most noises throughout the walls and floors of the building there was no noise insulation. We could hear breakfast being set up early in the morning and a radio switched on through our bedroom floor. Below, the shower pull cord from the bathroom below us was noisy, sounds trivial but it really is disturbing for guests. I'm pointing this out because I hope that the hosts can fix this issue for future guests.
