Chandler’s cottage makes a comfortable base for exploring Sidmouth and South East Devon. Leave your car in the private parking space and savour a more relaxed pace of life.

Take a leisurely 10 to 15 minute stroll along the tree-lined riverside byes into Sidmouth town centre where you’ll find a mix of independant local shops, cafes and restaurants. Then on to the esplanade for a breath of fresh sea air and views along the distinctive red cliffs of the Jurassic Coast.

Sample the catch of the day in one of our local restaurants and then walk back to put your feet up in comfort.

Absolutely beautiful cottage. So much care, attention and thought has gone into every aspect of it – giving your guests the “ultimate stay”. It is a pleasure to stay here. The welcome hamper was very much appreciated… our stay was over far too quickly leaving me with one regret – that we couldn’t stay longer!

We had a lovely time enjoying Sidmouth and the surrounding area… watching the fireworks, eating hot donuts during the regatta, sitting outside Dukes pub wrapped in blankets eating a lovely meal

The cottage was beautifully appointed and it was a real home from home. We could tell that a lot of thought had gone into every room and aspect of the house. We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it. 5 stars! Louisa H from Kent

We really enjoyed our time in a Sidmouth. Having visited on day trips know it to be laid back and uncommercialised. The town is clean and well kept. We like it that there are so many other places to visit within a short distance: cream tea in Budleigh, coffee on the beach in Beer, fish and chips in Seaton. All this deserved after losing ourselves on a longer than planned walk on Peaks Hill and Mutters Moor. A great walk if you don’t take the wrong track!

We spent an interesting hour in Sidmouth Museum on a wet afternoon the day we arrived.

The location of the cottage is good meaning there is no need to use a car to get down into the town but a pleasant walk through the Byes.

We joined in some local things. Nigel went on a bat count one evening taking place in the Byes and we both went to talk given as part of Sidmouth Science Festival.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. One of the best self catering properties we have rented. Carolyn and Nigel M from Bath
