About the property

Period cottage in village location in an area of outstanding natural beauty

Stanley Cottage is a Victorian semi-detached cottage in the heart of Tipton St John, a delightful and friendly East Devon village just north of Sidmouth. The accommodation is spacious and tastefully furnished with leather sofas and oak bedroom furniture. The cottage overlooks open countryside at the rear and backs on to a peaceful stream. The master bedroom offers superb views. Well behaved dogs are welcome (but no other pets please).

In 2014 Stanley Cottage was awarded a Four Star Self Catering accommodation rating from Visit England. During 2015 the cottage was upgraded extensively.

The accommodation comprises spacious kitchen with dining area and French doors to deck. Sitting room with smart TV, open fire and a range of books and board games. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, both very well furnished, one with twin beds and one with double bed. Large bathroom with corner bath and shower over, wash basin and WC. On the top floor there is a master bedroom with king size double bed. En-suite bathroom with bath, wash basin and WC. Large windows with superb views over the countryside. Outside there is a deck with garden furniture to relax in. The mill leat runs by where you can see ducks, eels and if you are very lucky you might even spot an otter. The cottage features full central heating, well equipped kitchen, dish washer, washer/dryer, TV in all bedrooms, Wi-Fi, stair gates, cot and high chair.

Lovely cottage in a fab location

  • 5 of 5

The property is gorgeous with everything you need for your stay.

Small outdoor decked area but perfect for an evening relaxing.

Very close to fields for a walk with the dog.

Would definitely stay here again - thank you :-)

2 Stanley Cottage, Tipton St John

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is a beautifully presented, comfortable, cosy, and well equipped property. It is situated in the heart of the village and is within a stone's throw from the local pub, the Golden Lion which serves good food. It also is surrounded by stunning countryside, and lovely walks which are virtually on its doorstep. We would happily stay again as it felt like home from home. Lina and Alan, Hampshire

Lovely cottage in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. All the rooms are of a good size and tastefully furnished. The large kitchen/diner is well equipped and a great room for socialising. The cottage is really well situated for visiting the picturesque surrounding area.
