Taking its name from a neighbouring 19th century bridge carrying the private road to Stuckeridge House across the River Exe, Chainbridge Lodge is approached over a driveway offering private parking for multiple vehicles. A particular feature of this property, with stunning far-reaching views along the River Exe, the garden adjacent to the house is laid mainly to level lawn sloping gently down to the riverbank and features a paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.

Chainbridge Lodge has the superb benefit of 1,916.6m of single bank salmon fishing on the River Exe. This stretch has historically been one of the most prolific on the river and for the avid salmon fisherman it represents a remarkable opportunity to fish for salmon within easy reach of London. Salmon with a weight of up to 17lbs have reportedly been caught on this stretch of water. The remaining land comprises predominantly level pasture. In total, the grounds measure approximately 13.2 acres.


Chainbridge Lodge is located on the River Exe between Bampton and Tiverton. The Exe Valley is an unspoilt area of countryside with a huge variety of wildlife and great natural beauty. The River Exe is the main salmon river in the West Country and one of the most prolific salmon rivers in England, which makes Chainbridge Lodge ideally situated for fishing in the surrounding waters. For everyday facilities, the pretty town of Bampton is about 1.5 miles away and has a range of local shops, pubs, restaurants, a doctor’s surgery and primary school. Tiverton, 7 miles away, has a comprehensive range of shopping facilities including a Marks & Spencer, Tesco and Morrisons, a hospital, leisure centre and an 18-hole golf course. There are schools for all ages including the well-respected Blundell’s School, for which the property is located within the reduced-fee catchment area. Tiverton Parkway station provides regular services to London Paddington in a little over two hours.

Exeter, approximately 21 miles away, is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with a theatre, the RAMM museum, arts centre and a wealth of good restaurants and shopping including John Lewis. Many well-reputed primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter College (Ofsted Outstanding), Exeter School and The Maynard. Exeter University is recognised as one of the best universities in the country. The M5 motorway at Exeter provides links to the A38, the A30 and to the national motorway network. There is a good range of flights to domestic and international destinations from Exeter International Airport.
