The Crows Nest



About this property

As the name suggests, "The Crows Nest" has spectacular views of Sidmouth. Lyme Bay, the Sid Valley and the distant red cliffs to the west can all be enjoyed from this vantage point. This spacious house is located in one of the most prestigious residential areas of Sidmouth, yet only a short downhill walk to the sea front and town centre. The secluded, south-facing, decked garden is a real delight with ornamental planting and teak garden furniture. All the windows are double glazed with "New England" style internal shutters to the main rooms. The Crows Nest is ideally located to explore Sidmouth and the world renowned Jurassic coastline and other Devon attractions. 

ACCOMMODATION: Large entrance porch and hall. Contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances and family breakfast table. Access to the enclosed rear garden. Two steps down to the superb living room enjoying an abundance of natural light with panoramic views over Sidmouth and Lyme Bay. Oak dining suite and leather sofas, soft lighting and neutral colour schemes with oak laminate flooring. Polished iron mantelpiece with a working gas fire. French doors and steps leading to the south-west facing garden. Off the inner hall there is a single bedroom with a luxury shower room and WC adjacent. Easy rising stairs to the first floor. The master bedroom is absolutely stunning with a Juliette Balcony and French doors, large picture windows overlooking the Seafront and Bay. King size bed, TV and fitted wardrobes. Single bedroom and a further double bedroom. All the bedrooms have oak furniture and "memory foam" mattresses on the beds and made up with quality bed linen and towels. Bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Visitor Comments

11th August 2018 - 'We are back for the Folk festival. This time we were blessed with wonderful weather. Also we had our parents who loved the cottage and the views. Thanks for a super holiday.'

2nd June 2018 - 'We have really enjoyed our week staying at The Crows Nest. It was lovely & clean upon arrival. Very spacious & fantastic views from the master bedroom. The welcome treats were greatly received. We have all had a lovely holiday & have been very comfortable here. Thank you.' The Dix family

10th March 2018 - ' Another wonderful week at The Crows Nest. We arrived at the end of the week of 'Beast from the East' and storm Emma. We were so pleased we could get here with all the chaos on the roads. Most of the snow in Sidmouth had melted by the time we arrived - our week here has been mainly wet but whatever the weather The Crows Nest is so welcoming and comfortableand it's great just to be there. There are so many great places for food and drink in the town. As ever a week isn't enough and it is far too long till our next visit. Thanks for the use of your house yet again. Mr & Mrs Moss

17th January 2018 - ' When we first steeped into The Crows Nest we know we were going to have a good time. We had actually come here for a funeral & it was supposed to be sad but the days leading up were really enjoyable. The best thing was that the house bought us together as a family. My family and I would like to thank the owners for creating us a new memory.' Florence

1st January 2018 - 'Lovely property that lacks for nothing. Thank you for everything.' Niall & Liz

16th December 2017 - 'Fantastic to be back. It just gets better & better. Love this house and its location. We have had a lovely week - sadly it's just flown by. Looking forward to our next visit.' Sue & Colin

9th December 2017 - ' Amazing holiday home. We wanted for nothing. We have stayed in many holiday cottages but none have come up to the standard here at Crows Nest. Thank you so much. We have already booked to return in 2018.' Liz & Steve

19th October 2017:Another short enjoyable stay as before on 1st October week.Hope to return soon.

14th October 2017:We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Crows Nest. A very well presented cottage with all that you could need. The views and location would be difficult to improve upon. The cottage is very well equipped and immaculate. Our thanks to all involved.

7th October 2017: Super short stay and sunshine. Everything spotless and well presented in the home. Many thanks.  

23rd September 2017: A lovely week in Sidmouth, we are much fitter now having walked up and down Hillside Road a few times! The house is comfortable and with lovely views.

26th August 2017 - ' A wonderful location, fantastic sea views and were able to enjoy sitting outside for an evening BBQ. Great to be able to walk into Sidmouth, particularly for the spectacular Red Arrows display. Would recommend Silver King Chinese for a take away and Sidmouth Tandori for a sit in meal in a relaxed, friendly environment with terrific food - don't be fooled by the outside - well worth a visit.' The Stone family

19th August 2017 - ' Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have had a brilliant week, 4 generations, just the girls! The views from the main bedroom are spectacular and an absolute joy to wake up to every morning. Many thanks for all the little extras on arrival, much appreciated.' Jean, Gill, Beday, Emily, Lara & Sophie

5th August 2017 - ' We had a wonderful time. The cottage is gorgeous, outstanding views. We certainly leave fitter from all the walking. Would love to return sometime.' Sarah & Chris

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.
