    Description

    At Chandler's Cottage we have created a comfortable and well equipped home from home suitable for couples, small groups or families. It's been awarded 4 stars by the AA in their self-catering accommodation grading scheme.

    The light and airy living room features two comfortable sofas for relaxing in front of the wood burning stove (in the winter months we provide logs). For days when you want to unwind in the house we have provided a wide selection of books, games and puzzles suitable for most age groups. There's also an LCD Freeview TV and DVD player.

    The living room is open to the kitchen dining area making it a light and sociable space.

    The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering (although Sidmouth has a wealth of places to eat within easy walking distance!). The pine plank dining table seats four and looks out over the mature back garden.

    To help newly arrived guests unwind after their journey we provide a welcome tray with coffee, tea, sugar and biscuits as well as fresh milk in the fridge.

    Upstairs, the main bedroom is a comfortable double with a European 5 foot king-size bed (what Americans will know as a Queen). The second bedroom is a twin room which looks out over the back garden. Please note that due to the unusual shape of the room it is not possible to push the two single beds together to make a double.

    We provide bed linen and all our duvets and pillows are non-allergenic.

    The bathroom has all the essentials - a bath with an electric shower over it, a wash basin and w.c. and we provide bath and hand towels at no extra charge.

    Instant hot water and central heating are provided by a combination boiler. Both bedrooms have radiators with thermostatic valves so that guests can control the room temperatures individually.

    Outside, there's an outdoor dining area at the back of the house and a garden which features a variety of shrubs and trees and is mostly laid with gravel. At the front of the house there is a private paved off-road parking area for one car.

    Location description

    Sidmouth is an unspoilt seaside town in East Devon. It has a bustling town centre with a unique mixture of independent shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants alongside some of the more well-known chains. There is a cinema and theatre as well as parks, playgrounds, a golf course and a public swimming pool. Visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the esplanade with views out to sea and along the distinctive red Devon cliffs. It has two clean and safe pebble beaches which reveal firm sand and rock pools at low tide.

    Sidmouth makes a great base for walkers - the South West Coastal path runs through it, there are countryside walks through local valleys and woodlands and it sits in a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.

    Very comfortable cottage

    Perfectly situated adjacent to The Byes, Chandlers Cottage is in the ideal location for visiting Sidmouth and East Devon. Pleasant walks from the cottage, good bus services and easy access to shops etc. The cottage itself is fully equipped, cosy and comfortable. We have no doubts that we will return in future.

    An excellent cottage. We love Sidmouth - location of cottage is great. Owners are very helpful and go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. Lovely welcome hamper. Lots of thought goes into this property. Highly recommend.
    Elaine B from Woking, 2nd stay, September 2023.

    Home from home, very comfortable
    Sue P from Verwood, 5th stay - September 2023

    Excellent location for using the Byes to walk into town. Lovely coastline that was good for walking.
    Richard D from Droitwich Spa, June 2023

    We had an excellent stay - a very comfortable retreat after a busy days sightseeing. Facilities excellent.
    Jim S from Rayleigh, April 2023

    We loved our stay, just wished we could of stayed another week!
    Shaun C from Burnham on Sea, May 2023

    It was really difficult to find fault with anything. The supply of wood for the log burner was appreciated. Thankyou for a very relaxing stay. We've had a bit of a year and the cottage was just what we needed. Loved exploing the garden and finding the hidden areas to sit with a coffee and a book. The kitchen equipment supplied was probably the most comprehensive that we'd experienced. Also, a really good list in advance so we didn't need to bring anything 'just in case'. We especially appreciated the range of herbs and spices.
    Ian & Jacqui D from Southampton, October 2022

    Excellent accommodation as usual. All the equipment that you want for cooking etc. A lovely garden to sit out in. The off street parking is a bonus as parking in Sidmouth is tricky. Jo's communication is excellent when asking questions.
    Dennis D from London, 3rd stay, July 2022

    An extract from the AA holiday accommodation inspector's review: "There is much to commend at Chandlers Cottage, not least of which being the attention to detail and quality which pervades, no doubt much appreciated by guests. Reassuring to see such a thoughtful approach with a host of extras provided, ranging from an extensive reading library to fishing nets! The open-plan configuration is ideally suited for holiday letting." July 2018.
