About the property

Cottage in Budleigh Salterton, Devon, England - Perfect Seaside Retreat In East Devon's Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty

This charmingly renovated cottage forms the annexe to a beautiful, 18th century family home situated just a couple of minutes walk from the pretty pebble beach and high street of the attractive seaside town of Budleigh Salterton. The cottage sleeps four and is ideally suited to a couple or small family. The front door leads into an open plan kitchen/sitting room with fully equipped modern kitchen and pine table with seating for four. The sitting area has a two seater sofa and two comfortable wicker chairs, a flat screen TV and DVD player and a French style wood burner. Stone stairs lead to an pretty double bedroom offering glimpses of the sea from the window seat. The smaller children's room has a single bunk bed and plenty of space for a travel cot. There is a private, south facing courtyard and patio garden with outdoor furniture where you can eat outside and have BBQs. French windows lead out from the sitting room area.

About Katie James

My husband and I own Lyndale and live here with our three small boys. We are all into the outdoors and sports which is why we love this area of East Devon so much. We all enjoy dinghy sailing on the Exe, cycling both on and off road along the coast, Woodbury Common and Dartmoor. The boys play cricket at the local club and go to school in the town and I get out into the lanes or along the coast paths for a run when I can!

Katie James purchased this in 2010

Why Katie James chose East Devon

We fell in love with Lyndale when we were looking to move in spring 2010 and couldn't believe our luck when we moved in a few months later. There is a lovely balance of town and rural living here which suits us and our children. The City of Exeter offers what we need in terms of culture, shopping and work life; you can be on a remote part of Dartmoor within an hour; the numerous tourist attractions keep our family and friends well entertained and we never get bored of being right next to the sea.

What makes this unique

Budleigh is a great little seaside town with all the shops and eateries you need, the beach, river walk and coastal paths are all stunning and all this is two minutes walk from the front door! The cottage is old and characterful but well equipped and easy to live in making it a lovely mix of old and new. The outside space is a real sun trap at all times of the year (assuming there is some sun!) and you could easily spend a week here without using the car if you wanted to. There are plenty of other lovely places to visit nearby though so having the car is obviously useful...

Lovely cottage near beach

  • 5 of 5

We would really recommend this lovely cottage. Great location 5 mins from the beach. The cottage has everything you need including a garden to sit out in. For rainy days we would recommend nearby Bicton Park which has soft play for kids, as well as lovely gardens and walks, and outdoor play area. We plan to return to this cottage.

a true gem

  • 5 of 5

a wonderful cottage: stylish, clean and aesthetically pleasing - in short, everything a holiday let should be. We - a family of four - spent five days over the New Year's period there. The location is fantastic; just a short stroll to the high street and the beach. If you want a home from home, look no further.

Budleigh holiday

  • 4 of 5

Good cottage in a good town. Plenty to do nearby, including local walks, plenty further afield if you like a drive.

I would be a bit anxious about the very old or the very young on the polished stone stairs.
