Assessors Comment:

The flat has been completely renovated to a very high standard and having spoken with the owner it most certainly has been a labour of love. This is reflected in the “eye for detail” and the finishing touches within the flat.

Goviers Cottage has been created from the upper floors of the famous Goviers China Shop which was established in Sidmouth in 1904 and was run by the building's current owners from 1983 until the shop closed and mail order business sold in 2019. For the last 3 years they have lovingly planned, rebuilt, and repurposed this 300-year-old historic building. It now provides retail space on the High Street for 'Liberty Belle' a small furniture/gift shop and two luxury holiday apartments on the upper floors named 'Ada' (Govier) after the founder of the business and 'Jula' (Angela Govier) Ada's granddaughter who decorated and sold her pottery in the shop in the 1950s. Both apartments are accessed off the quiet pedestrian Church Lane and have been superbly fitted out, themed with images depicting the history of the business and building, mixed with stunning photographs of the Jurassic coastline taken by the owners.

This brand-new apartment, up a single flight of stairs, is the ultimate in loft living with a very bright and airy feel, and the considerable bonus of a private sheltered roof terrace! Benefiting from being in the heart of Sidmouth, with the shops, amenities, award winning public gardens, esplanade and the beach all within easy level walking distance, this property offers the perfect opportunity for a relaxing holiday and will be in high demand all year round.

The property benefits from a private reserved space in a carpark less than 100 yards away so you can enjoy everything that beautiful East Devon has to offer.
