About the property

A refurbished 3 bed cottage, with parking close to the High St and Esplanade

Red Rose Cottage is a minutes walk from the High Street, yet in a secluded quiet location. A real 'home from home'. With parking for a medium sized car and a private courtyard garden it is a perfect base for a holiday in glorious Sidmouth.

The style of Red Rose is classic and comfortable. A place to relax, sit back and enjoy your break. Our cottage is furnished and equipped to provide comfort, with everyday essentials such as plenty of cups and mugs, plenty of matching crockery, and even enough tea spoons!

It has books, DVDs and games to keep you entertained, and a really good WiFi connection.

The sleeping arrangements are flexible and the second bedroom has a choice between a super king or two singles and feather or hollow fibre pillows. With quality bed linen and towels included to make your break that little bit easier to enjoy.

The welcome pack is our way to get your holiday off to a good start, and we have details of places to go, suggestions about where to eat and drink and a whole collection of other ideas. We know that many people are return visitors to Sidmouth so any fresh ideas for us and our guests are always welcome.

We are always happy to have a chat pre booking and if you need any assistance while staying with us we do have a local housekeeper, or just give us a call.

About Richard Lockwood

We just love Sidmouth! Having been frequent visitors for many years the charm of Sidmouth never faded, the appeal only increased. Spending time in the town and surrounding area is always pleasant, on a bright November day, enjoying an ice cream in the summer or having a potter through the streets leading up to Christmas - every season in Sidmouth is a pleasure.

Why Richard Lockwood chose Sidmouth

Having looked at many properties in Sidmouth we just knew that Red Rose was ideal when we walked through the door. A courtyard garden that gets the sun, three bright bedrooms, right in the heart of Sidmouth. The bonus of a parking space, the secluded yet central location. It was just what we were looking for.

We wanted a holiday cottage that was homely and comfortable. Where the furniture was chosen because we think it looks well together, not because it had become redundant in someone else's home. We wanted the crockery and cutlery to match. The knives to be fit for purpose the corkscrew to not bend like putty. We wanted the glasses to be uniform. We wanted enough mugs and tea spoons!

We really hope that you enjoy looking at the cottage, and if you choose to stay that you have a really good time in comfortable, relaxing surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sidmouth and loved Red Rose Cottage.

There was everything we needed in the kitchen and the facilities were immaculately clean and well presented. The beds were very comfortable.

We enjoyed looking around Sidmouth, it is a charming town, full of flowers and lovely shops. Fields department store and Graze coffee shop were my favourites.

We will return, and definitely recommend Red Rose Cottage to our family and friends.

A very comfortable home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in Red Rose Cottage and we loved it. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the owners had thought of everything. A very well appointed home. To get your car into the drive is quite difficult, I did it once, to unload, and chose it park elsewhere after that but don't let that put you off as this house has all you need for a very enjoyable break.

Old feel in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Nice house which has an old feel about it. Very close to town, coast and local park. Had parking space which was great even if left a scratch or two getting down the road to it. Owner gave great instructions and had cot, high chair and stairgate for our little one which really helped with car space.

Lovely spacious and,, comfortable property situated in the centre of town near to the shops, restaurants and sea front. We had a very enjoyable week here and there was plenty of information of the area and the home provided by top bloke Richard.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review Peter - we are very fortunate to have guests like you come and stay at Red Rose Cottage - I checked in immediately after you to take a few days break myself with my elderly mother (who I brought along to do the changeover and the cleaning whilst I made the tea...) Thank you for leaving our cottage 'immaculate' - My mum was very grateful, and we went out to the seafront for lunch instead! Please do visit us again - you will be very welcome indeed :-) Regards Richard

Brilliant Resort + Beautiful House = Most wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Returned from a lovely weeks stay in Red Rose Cottage in Sidmouth. Everything was just lovely, the house had everything we needed and more. I really enjoyed sitting outside in the evening having a little drink (or 2 it was our holiday lol) talking to my family of all the lovely things we had seen and done during the day. I thoroughly enjoyed going for a walk in the evenings, just me and our daughter, enjoying the scenery in the changing light, watching people fishing on the beach and finishing it off with crepes and donuts on the beach this was our little secret from her Dad and Grandma lol.

All in all what more can I say but Thank you so very much for allowing us to holiday in your lovely home. My husband is already planning to return again soon as everything was so perfect.

Kind Regards

Sharon, Chris, Rebekah Molyneux, & Nora Molyneux

Owner's Response: Dear Nora, What an absolutely lovely review - I am so pleased that you had a great stay. I have to say that Donuts on the beach is a great idea - and one that I had not considered *(packing bags as we speak, heading off to Sidmouth - if only!) It is a privilege to own a holiday home that is clearly loved by so many guests and we would be delighted to welcome you and your family back - and not forgetting a big thank you for looking after Red Rose Cottage during your stay. Responding to guests reviews and hearing of their memory making moments makes me want to get on the M5 Sidmouth bound every time - You have simply got to love Sidmouth! Thank you again Nora, Regards Richard

we had a great week. The house was very comfortable and more than adequately equipped. It is very close to all amenities and the beach. We will be recommending Rose Cottage to all our friends and family.
