Sidmouth, Devon, England
Within 1 mile of Sidmouth, Grebe forms one of three characterful cottages that have been carefully converted from a range of barns to provide high quality holiday accommodation.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This rental was very good. The facilities especially the kitchen/ dining. Very spacious for 2 bedroom rental. Photos give a very accurate impression. A minor niggle-no hairdryer seemed a bit odd and the use of washer/dryer at £3 per use not clearly specified but seemed a bit mean considering cost of weekly rental.

A well positioned cottage to Sidmouth with easy parking and a pleasing outlook. The cottage was well equipped and had good sized rooms including the bedrooms. There is a good outside space with tables and benches for al fresco dining or just a cup of coffee and a book.The shower is over the bath and awkward to use.

We had a most enjoyable stay and found the owners charming and very supportive.
