Beautiful gardens and leisurely walks, Regency history, quaint cottages, clean beaches and friendly shops…. it’s all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and the green hills of the glorious Sid Valley.
Sidmouth has everything you could possible needs - a picturesque beach, a lovely mile long esplanade, great shops, fine restaurants, fantastic walks and much more!
The beach is an ideal place in which to relax on a deckchair. The more energetic can always climb the 500 feet high Peak Hill to enjoy the magnificent panorama Sidmouth and the coast far below. In the other direction is the equally commanding Salcombe Hill whilst inland are the green hills of the pretty Sid Valley. Alternatively there is always a gentler stroll around town, through the park and gardens and along the seafront. This is linked by a walkway to the western beach at Jacob’s Ladder.
Sidmouth’s park, The Byes, is a delightful riverside walk and quiet sanctuary. There are popular guided walks from the Heritage Centre taking in the main landmarks of the town. A ford still takes traffic across the River Sid.
As well as The Byes, there are many interesting walks and drives around Sidmouth. The nearby villages of Beer and Branscombe are both worth visiting en route to Seaton, the next sizeable resort.
Placed in a lovely alley the property is protected very effective from traffic noise. A quite and comfortable place. You will see at once that the owner had spend pretty much time to restore the the character of the old house and managed at the same time, to install the modern way of living. Furniture and wallpapers were tastefully and coloured with caution. A nice place to live in. The communication with the representative of the owner worked well, we had to ask for some help to start the central heating system and he acted very prompt. So we really love this place and Sidmouth!

This cottage is tucked away in a delightful group of houses on a pedestrian path, which is itself located off a side street at the top of the High Street.
The location is brilliant we had a large buggy yet could work to the town-centre in seconds and to the sea-front in minutes. The cottage is also handily located for walks along the river Sid to Sidford (all off-road with pedestrian paths, I recommend turning right at Sidford and heading to the Blue Ball Inn for lunch!).
Tesco, Co-op, take aways (I recommend the fish curry at the Cinnamon Tree but would avoid the Chinese), independent wine shops and bakeries are all a short ramble from the front door. There is also a nice pub on the corner of Salcombe Road (I watched an England game there and they supplied sausage rolls and crisps) and opposite is the local cinema.
Sidmouth is great for kids. The beaches have a combination of pebbles, sand and rockpools and everywhere is accessible by wheelchair or pushchair. We had several cream teas and the wife was especially taken with the size of the cake portions in the Clock Tower Tea Rooms in Connaught Gardens.
The cottage itself has a large combined lounge and dinner with a well-stocked kitchen in an extended portion. Upstairs there are two bedrooms: the second bedroom has a single bed with a further pull-out single mattress. You can normally tell the quality of a house by the shower and this one was hot with plenty of power. TVs with freeview and DVD players are provided in both the lounge and the master bedroom.
One point to note is the parking is on the first available side-road up from the property the idea is to dump the car and use your legs within the town for the holiday. This was fine for us as Sidmouth had all we needed.
The owner was extremely responsive and pleasant when we had difficulties getting on the internet.
In summary I would say the cottage is ideal for either young families or couples (old or young!) looking for a relaxing (and possibly romantic) break.
we found the property clean and tidy very close to town centre and we enjoyed our stay and the friendly neighbourhood cat tigger x
The property was in a superb position enabling us to easily walk into town and the sea front. Beautiful area and very safe for children especially teenagers who have a tendancy to want to do their own thing!
Cottage was really sweet and nicely renovated by current owners. The only difficulties we encountered were the small fridge, ability to dry the washing as the weather was not too good and the house being cold, again due to the weather. Overall we had a lovely holiday and plan to visit again in the near future.
Many thanks for the feedback. The cottage is something we hold dear to our hearts. Whilst we live in Berkshire we have family in Devon and use it regularly to visit them. We have refurbished the cottage to the highest standards as a true 2nd home and I am really glad you enjoyed it.
Perhaps you missed the clothes drier that is in the out-house. Sorry the weather wasnt great but there is a brand new central heating system to use if required.
I am so glad you had a lovely time and I do hope you will visit again.
