The West Country region
The Dorset and East Devon Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, features many natural landmarks including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle door, and extends over 95 miles from Exmouth to Christchurch, offering a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the UK.
It is the only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in England, ranking the Jurassic Coast alongside the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef as one of the natural wonders of the world.
Exploring the Jurassic Coast
The Jurassic Coast is ideal for exploring on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. All of our cottages in East Devon are situated in what are known as the 'gateway towns and villages' to the Jurassic Coast. For further information on each village and the accommodation we have to rent please click on the relevant link below or search our Devon Cottages .
We have a selection of lovely holiday cottages in Sidmouth for a perfect Devon holiday. Sidmouth is the "Regency Town by the Sea" and a superb destination for a self catering holiday in Devon.
Complemented by beautiful architecture and a selection of interesting shops and colourful gardens in an almost level location, Sidmouth is an elegant all season resort ideal for a short break in Devon or a longer stay.
Famous for its International Folk Festival in early August, the town features two beaches, both clean and safe for bathing. The main beach is shingle, and the second, Jacobs Ladder, has long stretches of sand and rock pools at low tide. Sidmouth is also a 'gateway village' to the Jurassic Coast which is just around the corner from your Devon Cottage. The many coastal paths make for ideal walking holidays in Devon.
Perfect for all age groups, Sidmouth town is within easy reach of many attractions including the Cathedral city of Exeter, Dartmoor National Park, and The Eden Project. Local attractions are Crealy Family Adventure Park, World of Country Life at Exmouth, and Sidmouth's world famous Donkey Sanctuary.

"Super place to stay"
Cottage and facilities excellent. Well equipped and homely. We arrived in darkness and had difficulty in finding the entrance drive as we appeared to have to pass through someones garden. We also found great difficulty in maneuvering the car to to get access to the cottage drive due to obstruction of flower pots placed by the owner of the adjoining property and a hose feed clamp placed on the corner of the wall in such a position that it reduced the access width and was difficult to avoid and not damage the car side.
A marvelous place to stay just has access difficulty with a medium size car.

"The worst place we have ever stayed"
The location is as stated although not easy to access in the car. On entering the property we were hit by the smell (damp) Thinking that the property had been closed for some time we opened all the windows, on further investigation we found damp on the walls by the entrance door. The smell was particulary bad in the bedroom behind the bed the walls were rotten and breaking away and thick with dirt there were other damp spots near the ceiling and under the window We could not sleep in the room as the smell was so bad and we considered it to be a health hazard. Damp and dirt. We would not recommend this property and feel it should not be offered to the public. I have pictures of the damp and dirt areas. After sleeping in the lounge we moved to a hotel the next day.
This person is correct in their comments about the damp in this property, the owner has now rectified it. Our last guests enjoyed a 2 week stay at the property only a few weeks ago. Please note that we care for our guests and these people did not go to a hotel we moved them to another property in Beer which they enjoyed and thanked us for our help and concern.
