National Public Services Day Giveaway

As a thank you from Sweetcombe to the hard-working key workers throughout the UK’s Covid-19 pandemic, we have launched another giveaway to encourage people to nominate deserving key workers to win a stay at one of our fabulous properties! We want to celebrate the contribution all our key workers have made from firefighters, teachers, refuse collectors and administrators we want to say thank you and celebrate National Public Services Day on 23rd June 2020.

The winner of the holiday giveaway will be treated to a three-night stay in our stunning contemporary property The Crow’s Nest, which has been donated by one of our very generous owners. The Crow’s Nest is located in one of the most prestigious areas of Sidmouth, with amazing panoramic views of Lyme Bay, Sid Valley and the red cliffs from this vantage point. At the property, the winner can enjoy their trip with up to six guests, as the property houses four cosy bedrooms along with enough private parking for two cars, an oak dining suite and French doors leading to the south-west facing garden. The winner of the stay here can also enjoy a master bedroom complete with a Juliette balcony and French doors overlooking the seafront and bay.

Guests can also expect a large entrance porch and hall, a contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances and a family breakfast table. The living room features leather sofas, soft lighting, and neutral colour schemes with oak laminate flooring. There is also a polished iron mantelpiece with a working gas fire. There is also access to the enclosed rear garden.

We will chose the winner shortly after the giveaway closing date and can book their stay at The Crow’s Nest on any non-peak weeks, beginning when UK travel restrictions are fully lifted.
