  • "Lovely property, really spacious with comfortable furniture and no traffic noise despite being close to a road."

    Close to the town centre which is within walking distance (although it's uphill all the way back :) and there are walks from the doorstep. I did part of the coast path which took in coast and woodland and I also visited the Donkey Sanctuary, which is free parking and entry and has a great cafe. I was only there for 2 full days so no time to do anything else. My only negative was that there was a strong smell of mould in the bathroom which I bought an airfreshener to mask. I did mention this in the visitor book so hopefully it will be addressed.

    Thank you for your kind comments about the property; it's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We will pass on the comment about the bathroom to the housekeeper. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Filthy. Obviously had not been cleaned for a long time, cobwebs were too thick."

    Both ovens were disgusting, dog hair was around the dining area and thick black hair was in the shower. Old bedding and towels were left and nothing clean was left for us.

    We were sorry to hear that the property hadn't been prepared in time for your arrival, but we did organise for a housekeeper to attend ASAP. There had been an admin oversight which meant we weren't notified that there had been a departure. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

    The accommodation is beautiful and has everything you could need to make your stay a home from home. The area is fabulous too of course. Would definitely return.

  • "Property was clean and well furnished, toilet bowl was unstable and we mentioned this to the owner."

    Area was quiet to relax in. Could do with an ensuite upstairs. Staircase not suitable for elderly or infirm.

    The property had everything you need, with a lovely welcome pack on arrival. Great location for exploring the surrounding area. Will definitely be back so much to do in the area we just ran out of time. Thank you x

  • "Wonderful setting for a relaxing holiday."

    Great facilities throughout. Comfy beds and comfy sofa. Every kitchen item you could need. Always great to have a dishwasher. As stated in the listing the garden isn't secure but there is a great dog walk 5 mins walk away where you can happily let dogs off for a run. Would definitely book again.

  • "Very comfortable and spacious accommodation."

    Lovely and quiet. Nice outside space. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We have already booked for next year.

  • "Accommodation is clean, spacious and welcoming."

    Drawbacks are only one bathroom/loo, its location downstairs, and the fact that one bedroom can only be accessed from the other but we knew all that in advance and it was OK for us but may be issues for others. Main irritant was number of e mails from Sykes cottages asking for review shortly after we arrived and telling us repeatedly to leave the place just as clean we found it and even when to run the dishwasher.

  • "We had a wonderful stay here, everybody at the property is very friendly and welcoming."

    The cottage is spacious and open plan, we had a family party and everyone fitted in and enjoyed themselves. We also took our dogs and they were happy too. Ideal location outside town and easy access to Sidmouth and Waitrose. Would highly recommend, and will be rebooking soon.

    It's so lovely to hear that you all had a wonderful stay and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay at the Water Tower Studio."

    The open plan kitchen / living room works really well. We enjoyed the space and the light. George, the owner, was friendly and helpful in sharing his extensive local knowledge. We would certainly stay again and/or recommend it to others.

  • "Fantastic luxurious property, so spacious and loved the open plan downstairs."

    Huge garden so especially good for children and a dog. The owner was friendly and understanding when we had a few issues with our dog being unsettled as in a new environment. Would definitely recommend this property, only a 5 min drive to Beer beach and seaton. Have had such a lovely week thankyou, the kids really didn't want to go home!

  • "This was an excellent property in a great location for travelling around Devon and Dorset."

    We wished we could have stayed longer. It’s worth raising awareness that to get to the stairs / bathroom from the twin room you walk through the double room. No problem for families but a little cosy if staying as 2 couples! Our only criticism would be the lack of secure garden for the dog (we kept him on an extendable lead) and no bbq - this could be easily solved. More guidance for the recycling would also be helpful. We would love to stay again!

  • "The property was advertised as dog friendly, however the garden was very Insecure therefore could not allow our dog off lead in the garden."

    The property smelt of damp both upstairs and downstairs. The shower room was below standard for expected for this price point we paid. We have stayed in many holiday homes and this was very disappointing for us.

The property

Occupying a superb location boasting stunning countryside views close to Seaton in Devon, is this tastefully presented holiday home The Water Tower.

Perfect for families or couples on holiday together, the property has everything you need to make sure your holiday goes with a swing.

Inside, the accommodation is stylish and contemporary and offers a real home from home for its guests.

The open-plan living area is a wonderful introduction to the property and is a great space for socialising with friends and family.

There is an extensive seating area which is bright and airy and the perfect place to gather together and there is a stylish dining area all set up for long, lingering meals with your party and a contemporary kitchen which is fully fitted with everything you could need for preparing delicious meals for your family or loved ones and comes complete with an attractive breakfast bar where guests can pull up a stool, pour themselves a drink and keep the designated chef company.

A feature spiral staircase leads upstairs to where the two beautifully presented bedrooms are.

Choose from the master king-size or the twin but both offer a welcoming sanctuary away from the excitement of the main house and are the perfect place to wake up in the morning.

Grab a refreshing shower in the sleek, contemporary shower room and you’re ready to face the day.

There is so much to see and do in the area it’ll be hard to pack it all in.

Seaton is a wonderful place to visit and has its own tramway and the Jurassic Fun Centre as well as a good selection of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Take the tram along the coast past Seaton Marshes Nature Reserve to Colyton which is a picturesque medieval market town and well worth a visit.

A short but scenic drive away is Pecorama and Beer, famous for its quarry caves, with the seaside towns of Lyme Regis and Sidmouth also nearby.

For holiday memories to treasure a visit to The Water Tower Studio is a must.
