A superb townhouse with versatile accommodation currently serving as a successful holiday home


The popular Saxon village of Sidbury maintains a thriving community offering a range of amenities, including pub, church, church of England primary school and butcher s/village shop, along with regular bus services. The village is surrounded by delightful countryside and is just three miles from the Regency town of Sidmouth, noted for its long esplanade, beaches and public gardens.

Sidmouth has a range of independent shops and amenities, as well as recreational facilities including a swimming pool, sailing club, cricket pitch, tennis and croquet clubs, and a popular golf course. Sidmouth is within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is on the spectacular Jurassic Coast, a designated World Heritage Site renowned for its geological interest and dramatic cliffs and beaches.

The cathedral city of Exeter is an easy commute to the west and offers a wide range of facilities, rail links on the Paddington and Waterloo lines, access to the M5 at Junction 30 and Exeter International Airport.


Arguably one of Sidbury s most interesting historic and documented property, The Old Coach House was a former part of the Royal Oak Inn, believed to date from the 16th Century. This impressive and imposing Grade II Listed townhouse has been transformed by the current vendors to provide versatile and well-presented accommodation over 3 floors, including a bespoke fitted kitchen and modern bathroom suites. Initially the current owners used the property as a family home with separate guest accommodation to the second floor, although more recently it has served as a successful holiday home. The front elevation enjoys an easterly aspect overlooking Sidbury's 7th Century Saxon Church and from the first and second floor is over surrounding hills. There is a gravelled area to the rear offering parking and/or seating area.


The layout is shown in more detail in the 3D tour and floor plan, which we would suggest you look at. Overall, the accommodation is fantastically versatile to suit a range of buyers.

Under the original coaching archway there are two separate doors opening through to the reception hall and kitchen. The ground floor accommodation provides the perfect space for family living with a large open plan kitchen/dining room and an archway opening to the family room with shower room beyond. The kitchen comprises a range of bespoke units and a central island, along with space for appliances.

On the first floor is a large triple aspect reception room extending to 26 with exposed floorboards and wood burner. There are two double bedrooms overlooking the church and countryside beyond, including the principal suite with shower room, bathroom with a separate bath and shower and utility providing space and plumbing for laundry appliances.

The accommodation on the second floor can be adapted for a variety of needs; currently used as three bedrooms, including one en-suite, bathroom and storage area. The bedroom with the storage area beyond could easily make a sitting room and kitchenette.


Accessed through the original coach archway, there is a gravelled courtyard to the rear providing parking for two vehicles. The area is gravelled with adjoining raised planted borders and space for a seating area. There is also a private bin storage area.


All mains services are connected.


From Honiton take the A375 towards Sidmouth and continue for about 7 miles into Sidbury. The property will be found on the right opposite the church.
