Within 1 mile of Sidmouth, this characterful cottage, that is one of three, has 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 its own private patio overlooking the large shared garden and surrounding countryside, an ideal place for relaxing on warm summer evenings.
Sheldrake cottage is ideal for those in need of ground floor accommodation, but there are some steps to the entrance (a ramp can be provided on request) and the property adjoins one of the roads that leads to Sidmouth. Spacious living /dining room with high beamed vaulted ceiling and pleasing outlook over the garden. Modern well-equipped oak fitted kitchen. Two Ground floor bedrooms, one with a double bed and en-suite shower, further bedroom with a single bed. Bathroom with shower over bath and W.C. On the first floor there is a third bedroom with twin beds and en-suite W.C. Private patio with garden furniture and BBQ. Use of large mature shared grounds. 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.
