A delightful detached cottage with adjoining annex, situated in a beautiful semi rural location, yet close to the village centre.
Deepway cottage is a Grade ll Listed thatched cottage, offering all the charm and character expected of a property of this period. Features include exposed timbers and beams and an inglenook fireplace with log burner. Adjoining the property is a spacious, two bedroom annex with kitchen/breakfast room and sitting/dining room. The property stands within gardens of approximately half an acre, laid to lawn and dropping down to meet the River Sid.
The property occupies a delightful position in semi rural Sidbury, on the banks of the River Sid and within a quarter of a mile of the centre of the village. Sidbury is a thriving village featuring a well-regarded primary school, convenience store/butchers, a popular public house, a centuries old church, village hall and regular bus services to the surrounding area. The village falls within East Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is approximately three miles from the seafront in Sidmouth and only six miles from Honiton, where there is a main line rail link to Exeter and London Waterloo.
From our office on the High Street in Sidmouth, leave the town via Sidford Road and at the cross roads in Sidford, continue straight across sign posted Honiton and Sidbury. Follow the A375 for just over one mile and shortly before Sidbury church turn right on to Bridge Street. Follow the road over the bridge turning immediately right on to Deepway, the property being the second thatched building on the right.
