Grebe Cottage



Pet Friendly Holiday

About this property

Within 1 mile of Sidmouth, Grebe forms one of three characterful cottages that have 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 Grebe and Pintail 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 with garden furniture overlooking the large shared garden and surrounding countryside, an ideal place for relaxing on warm summer evenings. The cottage is tastefully furnished to a high standard with pleasing colour schemes throughout and have a wealth of exposed beams and trusses. There is an acre of 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.


This cottage has a traditional layout with bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. Level entrance into spacious, bright and airy living room with outlook over the garden. Modern oak fitted kitchen with dining area. Stairs to first floor. Two pretty bedrooms with exposed beams and outlook over the garden. One bedroom with a double bed second bedroom with twin beds.
