This most attractive thatched cottage occupies a delightful position in this well-known picture postcard street and is situated in the centre of this popular East Devon village. The cottage, we understand, is Grade II listed and still retains much character and charm with cottage style windows and exposed beams. The ‘L’ shaped sitting room enjoys a southerly aspect and has an adjoining dining room. The ground floor also offers an inner hall with cloakroom off and there is a kitchen which enjoys a dual aspect. To the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a good size bathroom. The property has gas central heating and a new boiler was installed in September 2016. There is also a garden with the property which is situated to the rear and enjoys a lovely view towards Buckley Hill.
Sidbury is a most attractive village and has the benefit of a Butcher/General Store, Village Inn, Historic Church, Social Club and a popular village Primary School. Regular bus services leave the centre of the village to the surrounding area and there are some delightful walks over the surrounding countryside.
SIDMOUTH & HONITON
The popular coastal resort of Sidmouth, which offers an excellent range of amenities, including the Cottage Hospital, Health Centre, Library, Indoor Swimming Pool, Cinema, Theatre and, of course, the popular Regency Esplanade, is approximately four miles away. The market town of Honiton, with its main line railway station to London Waterloo, is approximately seven miles distant.
From the Sidmouth office proceed up the High Street and straight over the mini roundabout. Continue passing the Police Station and shops at Temple Street and at Exeter Cross, keep right, signposted Sidbury and Honiton. Continue, and on reaching the traffic lights at the junction of the A3052 (Exeter-Lyme Regis Road), turn right and then immediately left, signposted Sidbury and Honiton. Continue to the centre of Sidbury and just before the church, turn right into Bridge Street. The cottage will then be seen a little way along the left hand side.
