Chapel Cottage is the ultimate chocolate box thatched cottage with heaps of character and nestling in its own secluded grounds in the beautiful rural farming hamlet of Harcombe. Part of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Harcombe lies less than three miles inland from Sidmouth and just 1.5 miles to Sidford, with Spar mini-supermarket, pharmacy and two local pubs. Built in 1640 and originally the site of the local chapel, Chapel Cottage has been owned by the same family for generations, once forming part of the Sand Estate in Sidbury, home to the Huyshe family for over 500 years.
The cottage would suit anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing, "get away from it all" holiday. With abundant wildlife in the large garden and surrounding fields, its inglenook fireplace for cosy winter fires, patio area for al fresco summer meals, masses of daffodils and primroses in the spring and spectacular views of countryside glowing gold in the autumn, Chapel Cottage will welcome you at any season.
