This beautiful and well maintained 3 bed cottage to rent in Sidmouth, Devon is set in a tranquil location yet just 3 minutes walk to the sea front.
Heydons House is a lovingly maintained, hgh quality cottage to rent in an enviable location in the heart of Sidmouth.
The beauty of Heyons House is that it is set in a peaceful area yet within a 3 minute level walk of the sea front and town centre. It is tucked away at the end of a quiet no-through road, yet everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. Importantly it offers its own parking space by way of an intergral garage.
Being furnished to a very high standard throughout, the accommodation is spacious and versatile. There are 3 main bedrooms but also a 4th room off the master bedroom, that is in essence a dressing room but has a single bed (with further pull out) so can be used as a 4th single or twin bedroom.
The layout of the cottage will also suit couples who just like a little more space and quality.
A real feature of the cottage is the large , country style kitchen. The central focus of which is an impressive Aga stove and oven.
From the kitchen, patio doors lead to a lovely sunny courtyard where you can stretch out in private or dine al fresco. There is even room for the kids to play in complete safety.
The cottage offers the best of both worlds. The energetic will love the pretty and romantic walks that Sidmouth and East Devon provide. Those just wanting to relax, unwide and take in the sea air can do so without the need of a car. By contrast if you want to get out and about, Sidmouth is very well located for everything Devon has to offer.
This is a wonderful and unique Sidmouth cottage to rent in Sidmouth that is adaptable to suit all needs and requirements.

Beautiful gardens and leisurely walks, Regency history, quaint cottages, clean beaches and friendly shops…. Sidmouth has it all!!
This lovely seaside town 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.
Families with children will enjoy the location. If you can get them off the beach, the kids will love a visit to Crealey Park, one of Devons largest theme parks or the more relaxed Bicton Gardens with its park and train ride. "Pecorama" at Beer is also a lovely date out.
This was our second visit to Heydons House and again it made for an excellent holiday.
We had one issue with a tap in the main bathroom and contacted Scott, who resolved the problem that same day.
Our only down side was the double bed in the main bedroom which was very uncomfortable. We resolved this by using the 2 single beds in the same room and pushed these together.
Thank you for the lovely review. We appreciate your comments about the mattress in the double bed and whilst it was only 3 years old we have replaced that now. Hope to see you next year for your 3rd visit.

The property was well equipped, in comfortable, cultivated condition. Location 2 min to the beach is lovely. Not to forget, that we got an excellent and prompt support by the owner for any question. Thank a lot for hospitality.

It ist so nice, I would life their forever!

Found the cottage had everything we needed and more .My wife had fun working out the Aga,and did some toast and some rice on it.The cottage felt more like a home than a holiday place.We did not use the garage as with our car,was a bit on the large size.On the whole,we think we choose a good place to stay.
Thank you very much for your very nice comments. I am glad you had a lovely time. It is a normal sized garage and fine for our BMW estate but yes, as it is a narrow lane, it can be a little bit tricky to get a larger car in. It's easy when you get used to it. And the fact that there is some parking, in a town like Sidmouth where there is hardly any parking, is a big benefit. (Don't forget there is also the parking space, that we have use of at evenings and weekends, outside the International school office which is only 100 yards away). Hope to have you back again in the future.
Lovely cottage in a great location. Warm and cosy downstairs with the aga and light and bright upstairs. It was freezing outside while we were there, but fine in the cottage. Two minutes from the shops and Kennaway House where our friends were holding an art exhibition, but in a very peaceful lane. Great for the kids scooters! Lots of lovely walks and places to eat in Sidmouth.
Very quaint cottage, clean and airy . Much larger inside than it looks from the outside , think Tardis . Love the Arga , very warm and cosy . Beds very comfortable . Ideal for all the family . Setting could not be better , just a few mins walk to town and beach and the cottge suituated in a quiet lane.

Heydons House has a wonderful location in the heart of Sidmouth, and just minutes from the beach. The cottage is very comfortable and clean.

Heydons house is located in a gorgeous quiet lane, close walking distance to shops and foreshore. A very comfortable property ensuring a wonderful break. Sidmouth is a beautiful town with lots of charm & character, a get spot to explore the Jurassic Coast along with the surrounding countryside. A gem in Devon.
We have just returned from Heydon’s House in Sidmouth. What a fabulous school half term week we had. The weather was fairly kind and we even ventured on to the Seaton Tram. The cottage is located perfect for the sea front and town centre yet is private and quite. It was immaculate, clean and very warm, it was also much bigger than we expected. We were very pleased with the value for money and would strongly recommend it. Sidmouth is so un-commercialised, has no arcades or kiss-me-quick hats and retains its Victorian splendour, such a nice place. Many thanks for a great time.
We had a lovely stay at Heydons House. The cottage is very warm and cosy thanks to the aga in the kitchen. Its in a perfect location with Sidmouth high street and the sea front just a short stroll away. We had a lovely holiday and have already booked it again for next year!
Heydon House is very well placed for all of Sidmouths amenities, of which there are many. It is a lovely warm cottage (due to the Aga in the kitchen), with a pleasant patio garden ideal for al fresco dining, Well worth a return visit.
Location counts for a great deal , and this is exactly what this cottage offers. Within no time at all, one has access to Bowling Greens, Public Gardens, the local market and shops, the Parish Church and the seafront. The cottage itself provides comfort and homeliness, so making for a really pleasing holiday
We found this cottage to be in an excellent location, a few minutes walk from the town centre and very near to the beach. Yet so quite and peaceful.
It had everything that one would need to make your stay welcoming, even a garage that we could store our grandchildrens bikes in. It was clean well presented and equipped.
We are now looking forward to returning next year, perhaps for an even longer period.
A lovely, deceptively spacious cottage a couple of minutes walk from the esplanade and Sidmouths bustling shopping centre. Although well located the cottage is in a quiet area and the outside patio area is a great suntrap for breakfast.
The cottage has a convenient garage, is simply but well furnished, spotlessly clean and has everything needed for a self catering holiday. It provides excellent accommodation and great value for money. Would I book it again?
