Lawnside is a former iconic sports pavilion built in 1906 which is now newly converted to modern standards offering three holiday apartments which look over the grounds of Budleigh Salterton Croquet Club. It is located on Cricket Field Lane, where the Bowls and Tennis clubs can also be found. This quiet location sits above the town with the shops and beach only a few minutes walk away.
Budleigh Salterton Croquet Club is one of the premier croquet clubs in Europe with 11 lawns and outstanding views over the town and sea. It regularly hosts National and International tournaments but is first and foremost a club accessible to everyone and to all abilities.
The Club is now over 150 years old; the earliest records show that Archery was the first activity in 1856. By the 1870's croquet was played followed by tennis and bowls. For many years the Club was an important stage on the qualifiers circuit for Wimbledon. When the professional tennis era began Croquet became the dominant sport. The beautiful setting over the sea includes lovely gardens which are a delightful complement to the outstanding grounds and facilities that are enjoyed by club members and visitors alike.
Lawnside 2 is a beautiful, completely self-contained bedsit with off street car parking ideal for one or two people seeking a quiet location. The apartment is well furnished with quality oak furniture, wood effect flooring throughout and tasteful soft furnishings. Level access leads to a well equipped kitchen fitted with integrated appliances and a generous breakfast bar and desk area. The open plan living area includes comfortable seating and a smart large TV with broadband. The king size bed (which can be split into 2 singles on request) completes the picture and the whole is served by a luxury en suite shower room with large walk-in shower, ample cupboards, hand basin and WC. The private outdoor space and a small patio with bistro style table and chairs is just perfect for the evening sun!
