Pintail cottage



Pet Friendly Holiday

About this property

Within 1 mile of Sidmouth, this characterful cottage, that is one of three, has been carefully converted from a range of barns to provide high quality holiday accommodation. Bulverton was originally part of the Manor of Sidmouth, once owned by the Monks of St Michael. Sheldrake cottage was originally an 18th century corn mill, while Pintail and Grebe cottages formed part of the early Victorian farm buildings. Adjacent to the owner's delightful home, the cottages enjoy a south facing aspect, each one having a private patio overlooking the large shared garden and surrounding countryside, an ideal place for relaxing on warm summer evenings. The cottages are tastefully furnished to a high standard with pleasing colour schemes throughout and have a wealth of exposed beams and trusses.


Pintail is a lovely retreat for a couple. Level entrance to open plan living/dining room with modern oak fitted kitchen area. Stairs to first floor. Charming double bedroom with a zip and link bed. The bed will be made up as a super king unless you request for two single beds prior to arrival. This room has exposed beams and outlook over garden. Bathroom with shower over bath and W.C. Private patio with garden furniture and BBQ. Use of delightful mature grounds. There is a one acre enclosed lawn area for dog exercising.The owner does request that dogs are kept on a lead when in any other areas of the grounds, such as car park, communal gardens and patio area.

Check Availability & Book Booking Form

*Short Break prices shown are for 3 nights only, please call for 4 or 5 night prices if required. Short Breaks are available from the end of October half term to the start of the Easter school holidays, or at the owners' discretion for a last minute booking at other times of the year. Unfortunately it would be most unusual for us to be in a position to consider a short break at peak holiday times, such as the October and February half terms or over the Christmas, New Year and Easter breaks.
