About the property

2 bedrooms, both with ensuites in the heart of Sidmouth town, near to the beach

Little Anchor is a charming two bedroomed apartment in the heart of this beautiful, unspoilt regency town which overlooks the waters of Lyme Bay and nestles in amongst the dramatic red cliffs towards the eastern end. Little Anchor is just a stone's throw from Sidmouth's lovely beach. There are spectacular coastal walks nearby, great restaurants and plenty of family-friendly activities.

The lounge/dining/kitchen area is open plan with south facing sash bay windows which fill the room with sunshine. There are two sofas (one of which is a sofabed) a comfy armchair with matching footstool and two tub chairs where you can sit and watch the world go by in the market square below. Wifi,sky tv, a selection of dvds, books and board games are all provided in this light and spacious room overlooking Sidmouth town.

Sidmouth has plenty of wonderful places to enjoy eating out but if you prefer, you can dine in the beautiful sunny bay window or at the breakfast table beside the fully fitted kitchen. An oven, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, all cutlery, crockery, pots and pans are provided.

Both cosy bedrooms have ensuite facilities - a bath with shower over joins the double room and a shower en suite joins the twin bedded room. Bed linen, towels and a selection of summer or winter quilts are provided.The twin bedded room is spacious, sunny and inviting and the double back bedroom leads onto a small balcony.

Sidmouth captivated the Poet Laureate, John Betjeman, who called it 'A town caught still in a timeless charm’

Beautiful gardens and leisurely walks, Regency history and fine hotels, clean beaches and friendly shops.... it’s all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and the green hills of the glorious Sid Valley. This Jurassic coast is a thing of beauty. It isn't part of a world heritage site by chance. It is a tranquil step back through the geological history of the world that cascades the deep reds of the dominant rocks into your consciousness alongside the feel of the wind on your skin and song of birds in your ears.

About Jane

I grew up in Cornwall but moved to East Devon 30 years ago and having found Sidmouth, fell in love with the town and the beautiful surroundings. In my opinion there is no where more lovely to live and to visit. It really is a special place with so much to offer.

Jane purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jane chose Sidmouth

I saw this apartment being modernised and always thought it was such a pretty building in such a fabulous location. Having rented Little Anchor out over the past year on another holiday site, all of the reviews have been wonderful and so many people comment on how great the location is and how they love to watch the world go by in the Market Square below the bay window. Every time I walk in Little Anchor it puts a smile on my face and so I'm confident it will please visitors. I like to offer for rent a place that I would be happy to stay in.

What makes this apartment unique

Of course the greatest benefit of this apartment is the location. It is in the heart of the lovely Regency town whilst also being a two minute walk to the esplanade and beach. I love the shape of the room and the light from all the big windows. It is modern but with the character of the old building. There is also sky tv and free wifi.
