Property description

The Old Coach House is a well presented, characterful property sleeping 10 across 5 bedrooms over the summer months. We offer a Saturday changeover for peak week stays. It is ideally situated in the picturesque village location of Sidbury while still being only a 5 minute drive to Sidmouth, the beach and esplanade. The property dates back to the 16th Century and a georgian frontage was added in the early 1800's. It retains character features including timber beams and archways. Bedlinen and towels are provided.

Sidbury: Sidbury is the perfect location to explore so many of the near by towns, villages and beaches. It is a 15 minute drive to Honiton, Seaton, Beer and Branscombe and 25 minutes to Lyme Regis. The beautiful, quaint, seaside town of Budleigh Salterton is just 25 minutes away as well. We have an excellent bus service, which runs frequently and until about 11.30pm from Sidmouth.
There are many beautiful walks and cycle paths around. We are happy to help with hiring of bicycles or a fishing boat, etc..
Within the area are wonderful places to eat also. Among others, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River cottage is just 15mins away.
A couple of doors down from The Old Coach House is a 16th Century pub called the Red Lion, serving home cooked food and opposite is a speciality local butchers and convenience store.
We are here to make your stay with us as pleasurable as possible and look to you for feedback, in order to make future stays more enjoyable

Car: Recommended

The Old Coach House is a charming, 16th Century coach house 2 miles from the Regency town of Sidmouth on the South Devon coast. Sidbury‚ with its lovely cottage frontages and gardens‚ is a haven of tranquil village charm. No wonder it has won the Best Kept Village competition so many times. Sidbury is also on the bus route and in an excellent position for exploring this beautiful area.

Sidmouth was a small fishing town that became a fashionable destination in the Regency period, and retains an unspoilt Regency seafront promenade and many interesting buildings from the period. The Jurassic Coast of East Devon is a World Heritage Site, with beautiful coves and cliffs and stunning coastal walks. Places to visit include, Bicton Park and Gardens, Crealy Adventure Park, Seaton Tramway, Powderham Castle, Beer Quarry Caves, great family beaches in Sidmouth, Beer, Seaton, Exmouth & Budleigh.
