If you want a "views of the sea" cottage - this isn't for you (the hills block it); if you want a fabulously appointed place to stay, with big rooms, great hosts, and a pig roaming around the garden - this is the place.

Modern, well equipped apartment. Comfortable and a good location for exploring east Devon. Friendly owners, Russ and Emma live above the apartment and were available if needed but didnt intrude. Highly recommended for a relaxing break.

This is a very comfortable property particularly with young children or people who are not so mobile as it is all on one floor. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Interesting location with good views from the garden. Perhaps slightly out of the town although there does seem to be a bus service down to the seafront. Supermarket and pub are a short walRead morek away but there is a steep gravel drive on your return. A very good place to stay to explore south Devon including Otterton, Budleigh and Lyme Regis.

This is the most beautiful property I have stayed in! The owners are amazing and really helpful! The accommodation is excellent quality and lots of cooking implements! The location is quiet and hidden away but a short trip and there is the beach, shops and places to eat! The Bowd is a lovely pub to try but booking is essential.

Lovey hosts and accommodation was spotless and had everything we needed. As we love to walk we found the location on the edge of town perfect, but be aware that there is a sleep hill from the main road to the cottage. 30minutes walking and you are at the seafront.

Could not have been any cleaner or more comfortable. Emma and Russ were on hand if needed, but never intruded, giving us complete privacy. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

A beautifully spacious apartment with a high standard of furnishings and equipment. My elderly father was especially delighted with everything being on a single level and the easy to use walk-in shower. Emma and Russ were very welcoming hosts but not at all intrusive.

The accommodation was excellent being very nicely finished both in terms of general decoration, fixtures & the items that make it feel homely without ever feeling like you are intruding into anothers a great balance...The actual physical build & positioning is an interesting story and the build project can only be classified as a greatRead more success. The owning family are non intrusive, but most welcoming, and we enjoyed chatting with them occasionally. For us this rental works! Hide

This is a very comfortable property - especially the beds! All the fixtures and fittings are of a high spec and there is all the equipment you could need. The owners who live above are very friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. We had a lovely stay and would go back again.

We had the most amazing family holiday at The Waterhouse in Sidmouth. It was the cleanest and most comfortable house weve ever stayed in and just what we needed as a base to explore the beautiful local beaches. The owners are lovely and made us feel very welcome without being at all interfering. A perfect place for a family seaside holiday.
