NHS Giveaway

Treat Our NHS Giveaways! 

As a thank you from Sweetcombe to the hard-working NHS staff throughout the UK’s Covid-19 pandemic, we have launched not one but two  giveaways to encourage people to nominate deserving NHS members to win a stay at our fabulous properties!

As soon as we realised the impact of COVID-19, we immediately advised our owners and guests that holidays would not be able to take place. Not only for the initial three-week lockdown, but for the 12-week period due to the aging local population. We informed our local MP, councils, and residents that we are helping as much as we can in order to stop the spread of this virus. The community have truly come together to support one another, and we feel we are very lucky to live in Devon, especially at a time like this.

One winner of the holiday giveaway will be treated to a three-night stay in our stunning sixteenth century semi-detached thatched cottage, Rosemary Cottage, located in the rural area of Weston on the outskirts of Sidmouth, Devon. 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 three cars, with a private garden at the front, complete with garden furniture and BBQ; the cottage also welcomes a family dog should you wish to bring your four-legged friend.

Guests can also expect a spacious living room with an exposed stone wall, inglenook fireplace with a wood burner off from the dining room with exposed beams and archway, which leads to the handmade oak kitchen featuring a centre island and French doors to the rear garden. There is also a summerhouse at the cottage for guests to use.

The other winner will recieve a three night stay at Seascape in Sidmouth for up to four guests and a dog. Seascape is a superb luxury apartment forming part of an imposing Grade II listed Georgian terrace perfectly positioned in the heart of Sidmouth, with the seafront, shops and restaurants all within a two minute level walk. The owners have thought of everything required to make this a real home from home; pets are especially well catered for. The apartment has been tastefully decorated throughout, with modern furnishings, and although the apartment is on the lower ground floor the accommodation is surprisingly bright and airy with large sash windows to the front of the property.

The winners will be chosen shortly after the giveaway closing date and can book their stay at Rosemary Cottage and Seascape on any non-peak weeks, beginning when UK travel restrictions are fully lifted.
