Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Bell Cottage is a newly refurbished two bedroom upside down cottage, situated just outside the town of Sidmouth, in close reach of the surrounding countryside, town centre and the Jurassic Coast.
Internally, the cottage offers open plan living areas with extensive countryside views and two bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom. Externally, there is a communal garden area with seating from which the farmland views can be enjoyed.
The nearby town of Sidmouth is one of the prettiest seaside towns of Devon, enjoying period 18th and 19th century architecture, floral displays and a welcoming atmosphere all year-round. The town is fiercely proud of its selection of traditional and independent shops, which are a refreshing break from the hum-drum high street multiples found in so many towns across the UK.
For family groups of up to 8, the adjoining property – Oak Cottage – can be booked.
Please note: This property accepts bookings of a Friday - Friday changeover all year round. Short breaks can be accepted as long as they do not overlap the changeover day.

The West Country region
Devon is known for its unspoilt coastline, its natural landscape, and of course its cream teas and other local specialities. It has lots to offer including historical attractions like the homes of Sir Francis Drake and Agatha Christie, or for natural history fans you can take a trip down to the Jurassic Coast. There are also festivals galore, including sheep racing, and activities such as go-kart racing and assault courses at the various adventure centres.
Great for walking, relaxing, and exploring one of England's most unspoilt regions.
Although there are no beaches in Plymouth, there are many spectacular beaches within a short drive of the City. Here is a selection of the best beaches within the area: Looe – East, Seaton (Near Looe), North Sands (Salcombe) and South Sands (Salcombe). Alternatively, if you do fancy a dip without leaving Plymouth, why not visit the historic Tinside Lido. Since undergoing a £3.4million refurbishment in 2003, the open air seawater pool has been restored to its former glory. It is built in stunning Art Deco style and is situated on the Hoe. The pool is open during summer months.
In September South Devon hosts a walking festival with a wide variety of activities taking place. For more information on the festival please see http://www.southdevonwalkingfestival.co.uk/.
The Barbican is close by where you can meander the cobbled streets with individual specialty shops, craft work shops and art galleries. Many local artists have won global reputations, including Beryl Cook, Lee Woods, Brian Pollard and the late Robert Lenkiewicz. There are also many interesting old pubs and cafes to visit.
If you fancy a dip then the Art Deco Tinside Lido is close by, and the beaches of Bigbury and Whitsand Bay are just a short drive away. Why not catch the Cremyl ferry across to Mount Edgecombe Park and discover the hidden Cornish villages of Cawsand and Kingsand with their quaint old streets and family beaches?
