About Lympstone

Lympstone Harbour, or Boat Haven, is situated on the eastern shore of the Exe Estuary. The village was an important shipbulidng port as far back as the Middle Ages. It remained an important fishing centre until after World War II.

The Lympstone Fishery and Harbour Association is responsible for the administration of the Lympstone harbour area and the maintenance of the harbour wall. The foreshore at Lympstone has recently been purchased by the Harbour Association from the Nutwell Estate.

Sailing times are dictated by the tide and are limited to approximately 2 hours either side of high water. There is an active sailing club.
