Topaz cottage is a Grade II listed late 18th century character cottage situated in a picture postcard setting in the pretty village of Sidbury. In a location away from the main road down a quiet lane with the river Sid running past the row of 3 cottages it makes for a perfect setting to relax and enjoy. With cosy sofas, inglenook fireplace, oak beams, a modern kitchen/dining room and comfortable quality beds the cottage is a perfect getaway for all ages. Unwind in the south facing sun trap garden with a glass of wine with your meal. The area around the cottage very open and quiet with access to walks woods and fields, the kids will love the river and pond for a spot of fishing. Enjoy the short and pleasant walk to Sidbury mill or watch the local cricket team just a short walk from the cottage. The local pub and shop are just a 2 min walk... Read more

The Cottage was perfect! It was very clean and welcoming and provided everything we needed. It was situated in a very tranquil location and shops and beaches were in very close proximity. We would definitely visit again. more

Management response:

Thank you, we are very pleased you enjoyed your break and are tempted to return, next year will see a new bathroom and other improvements that will make a break at Topaz even better, and remember there is a good discount for returning guests even though prices are very reasonable already. more

We stayed at Topaz cottage during an extended trip back to Blighty and Europe to visit friends and family. Our party consisted of our 2 teenage daughters, my wife, my wife's mother and myself. As we used to live in a cottage of much the same dimensions, we felt perfectly at home and did not find the space at all... more

Management response:

Thank you for your review, describes the cottage very well. The parking is on road as described on the web site with plenty of space on the quiet lane for normal family cars. 4x4's or such like are OK but can be a tight squeeze for the bin lorry. more
