Absolutely beautiful cottage the views onto the river were amazing prime spot just a lovely walk down the river to town the cottage was so cosy and had everything you needed definitely would go back there again in the future
Property was clean, presentable in a quiet position.. Nice location by the park, being able to walk into town or down to the sea front along the river. The conservatory is a nice sun trap on a sunny day. Cottage had all amenities required for our stay. We paid the extra and had linen supplied and beds were very comfortable. Wi-fi connection was good. Only downside was parking as locals and dog walkers park in lane outside cottage and take up parking spaces.
Stunning location. We will be back. The 2 Grannies.
Perfectly situated next to the Byes and has has a lovely homely feel!
Cute cottage in a lovely position
The cottage is very cute. Downstairs is quite spacious with comfy sofas and a conservatory. Upstairs does have a lot of steps and a very narrow and steep set of stairs up to the second bedroom. This might not suit everyone.
The seafront & beach are a 15 minutes pleasant walk along the river. There are two beaches - both offer sand and rockpools at low tide. Swimming is generally safe. There is an active sailing club.

About Peter Jackson
Olga & I are a retired professional couple who have lived & worked mostly in the Midlands. We have also spent time working overseas so we have seen a good bit of the world. But we always say that there is nowhere more beautiful than the English countryside, and Sidmouth in particular. The cottage is in a unique peaceful position and yet the shops and beaches are easily accessible on foot. We have seven grandchildren and they all love the place to bits. We go there regularly both winter & summer. As a result the cottage feels warm and lived in. We have always had dogs and the cottage is ideally placed for them. It will appeal to people who want to explore the area, have a seaside holiday, or just enjoy a restful break.
Peter Jackson purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Peter Jackson chose Sidmouth
Olga's family used to take many holidays at the nearby Salcombe Regis campsite and Sidmouth was the place that we got to know well So when the chance arose we bought the cottage in 1986. It's prime position overlooking the Byes Riverside Park is the special feature. Our guests repeatedly praise it's homely character and level of equipment and comfort which is due to the fact that we come here often ourselves. Sidmouth is on the Jurassic Coast which offers outstanding UK coastal scenery. It is a completely unspoiled and unashamedly traditional stylish Regency seaside town. But there is a lot going on around the town including the well known folk festival every August. The Manor Pavilion Theatre presents frequent plays, musicals and recitals all to a very high standard. There is an old fashioned cinema, the Norman Lockyear astronomical observatory open to visitors, and lots of eating establishments to suit all pockets! There are no amusement arcades or funfairs.
What makes this Cottage unique
The best feature of the property is that you can, if you wish, park your car and find everything within easy walking distance. However it is also an excellent base for touring the surrounding area. Our high proportion of repeat bookings speaks for itself.
