The Details

This former estate lodge is an iconic building within the charming village of Sidbury, East Devon.  Nestled within the village but in a private location on the Sidbury Estate boundary, the lodge has been renovated and transformed into a memorable and unique stay.

The theme running throughout this beautiful home is simple; dragging the natural landscape immediately outside into the lodge. A warming country plum adorns the cosy country living room, with quite simply a gorgeous boucle sofa to slip into after a days exploring East Devon. The kitchen packs a punch, with a sage green and floral theme, complimented with an vibrant, yet classic, black and white abstract tile-effect floor.  All your creature comforts can be found, with Nespresso coffee machine, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and country Aga.

There is a galley utility off the kitchen with washing machine and separate downstairs loo. There is useful area for kicking off muddy boots and hanging wet coats etc. here. Finally, off the utility area is a traditional pantry; housing the fridge and freezer, with plenty of space to store your supplies and locally sourced ingredients.


Both bedrooms have king size beds with new mattresses. One bedroom is located on the ground floor opposite the kitchen - ideal for people recovering from injuries or ops, or those preferring ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor is the second king bedroom with views toward the village.

There is a dedicated toddler bedroom with sliding door - recommended maximum age for this bed is realistically aged four or five - but please ask UHS - there is possibility to place a trundle bed in this room.     

The family bathroom with shower over bath completes the second floor.

Outside from the utility room, there is a small secure concrete base courtyard with log store - ideal for bbq in the warmer months.  A gate leads off from this courtyard to a private garden area.

The views from the lodge look out onto the estate beyond, with sheep, pheasants, deer and a variety of bird life ever present. Guests can enjoy access to the public footpaths running from the village right up to Sidbury Castle and East Hill Strips above the valley.


Sidbury village is a mere minutes stroll down the lane, where a butchers, convenience store, pub and busy village hall can be found. Victorian seaside town of Sidmouth is a 10 minute drive south, which has fantastic restaurants and shops, a Waitrose, sea sports, & swimming pool. Further afield but nearby are the Jurassic Coast's fossil hotspots in Charmouth & Lyme Regis, and the ever popular Exmouth and Exe Estuary.  The nearest city is Exeter boasting some great shopping opportunities, fabulous restaurants and many activites for all ages - bowling, climbing walls, canal kayaking etc.
