Holiday Rental House
Hemphaye cottage is centrally heated and has been furnished and decorated to a high standard, personally maintained by the owners and kept spotlessly clean. Open all year, Sidmouth's mild climate makes the cottage an ideal choice both for Summer holidays and for Winter and Autumn breaks. Since opening in April 2000, all our guests have been surprised and delighted with the size and luxury of the accommodation. In fact, one of our guests has written in the visitors' book “What a delightful place. Our immediate reaction after unpacking was 'Holiday Cottage! We could live here'. Everything is very well thought out and provided.” ...Hemphaye cottage is centrally heated and has been furnished and decorated to a high standard, personally maintained by the owners and kept spotlessly clean.

This is the perfect holiday home. From the charming cottage, you're within short walking distance of both Sidmouth's quaint shops and the pebble beach, which offers spectacular views on the cliffs east and west of it. The cottage is nicely decorated, feels ample, and was...More
