Situated in a glorious position beside the tree-lined River Sid - Riverside Cottage is a romantic 'bolthole' for visitors seeking peace and quiet in a cottage very close to the sea and the town of Sidmouth. Equipped to a comfortable standard. It is the wonderful location which makes this property special.A charming cottage at the end of a terrace, once the stables to a period house. At the end of a cul de sac in a peaceful riverside setting in Sidmouth, a 15 minute stroll for the able-bodied through The Byes to the town and beach.
