This holiday property is perfect for couples, growing families or a trio of friends seeking home comforts without sacrificing style. The village of Sidbury has plenty to offer. There is a shop, village pub and a local church. Footpaths and bridleways are accessible.

Tucked inland, 2 miles away from the red cliffs and luscious green hills of the Sid Valley, this chocolate-box cottage is an ideal base to explore the wonders of East Devon. Combining period features with contemporary detail, this holiday property is perfect for growing families or a trio of friends seeking home comforts without sacrificing style. Gather together for a good catch up, curling up on the sofa in front of the gas fire to swap stories and put the world to rights over a pot of tea.

Charmed by the traditional shutters and olde-worlde charm of the exterior, kick off your boots inside the lobby before making your way into the impressive lounge, featuring exposed beams and a fireplace with wood burner effect gas fire. Through a doorway, follow the cottage-style stairs to find two refreshingly decorated bedrooms and a shower room with WC. The lounge leads to the pretty kitchen and spacious conservatory dining area, a cosy setting for afternoon tea, or a place to enjoy breakfast to the sound of birdsong and the smell of bacon sizzling. The enclosed garden is a tempting spot for a BBQ, with views of the surrounding unspoiled countryside.

The village of Sidbury has plenty to offer from a local church and shop to footpaths and bridleways accessible from your front doorstep. Further afield is the town of Ottery St. Mary 6.5 miles away, famous for its meandering river where nature enthusiasts can spot kingfishers, otters and occasionally beavers. If a beach visit is more your cup of tea, Budleigh Salterton is a traditional seaside town 10 miles away, or Seaton 9.5 miles away has a scenic tramway that runs through the Axe Valley.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

First time holiday renters so not sure what to expect. We found it well above our expectations. Comfortable, cosy, very high spec. A south facing garden with beautiful views. Bought our 2 dogs with us and enjoyed the millennium field to let them run free. Many lovely walks around. We shall rent again from you.

A beautifully presented cottage in a gorgeous village location. Easy access to the coastal towns/villages nearby - Beer, Branscombe, & Sidmouth! Lovely local pub The Red Lion with a very friendly welcome for both us & our dog Tilly. Will definitely be returning to this lovely cottage retreat.

The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm and very well equipt. The beds were comfortable and every room had a TV. The village location was good for travel and the garden was peaceful and very secure if you are taking your dog. The local pub was welcoming with nice food. The only thing to note is that the stairs to the bedrooms are a little awkward ifRead more you have mobility issues. But the cottage is one of the best we've ever staged in. Hide
