Enjoying a fabulous location just moment’s away from the coast, as well as a charming interior adorned with nautical touches, Sleepy Donkey Cottage.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you will find a well-equipped kitchen for rustling up tasty meals, ready to enjoy at the dining table for six as you recount the days adventures.

After dinner, curl up on the plush seating in the sitting area with your favourite tipple in hand in front of the electric fire.

Following a day of exploring the coast, you can freshen up in the well-appointed shower room, before choosing from three well-presented bedrooms, two doubles, and a twin.

In the morning, why not explore the communal grounds where you will find a play area for the little ones to enjoy?

The famous Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary is next door, with a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch for when you fancy a break from the kitchen.

As you approach the Donkey Sanctuary on foot from Sleepy Donkey Cottage, there is also a footpath (steep at times) which leads through the scenic National Trust land to the secluded Weston Mouth beach.

For a wider selection of amenities, head to Sidford, where you can enjoy the delights of The Rising Sun and Blue Ball Inn, as well as Sidford Tennis Club and Long Park.

Continue onto Sidmouth, where you can enjoy a spot of stargazing at the Norman Lockyer Observatory, wander through the beautiful National Trust surroundings of the Sidmouth Countryside, spend a day at Sidmouth Beach, or delving into history at the Sidmouth Museum.

Further afield, you can visit the bustling city of Exeter, home to a remarkable cathedral, the Bill Douglas Museum, and the Northernhay Gardens.

All this and more awaits at Sleepy Donkey Cottage.

About the location


Exeter 16 miles.

Sidmouth is an elegant seaside resort on the south Devon stretch of Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site of great natural beauty. Here is where the River Sid cuts through the Devon hills to meet the sea at Lyme Bay, creating a clean pebbly beach, giving way to golden sands at low tide backed by dramatic red cliffs creating a safe family beach with rockpools and safe bathing. Sidmouth is lined with stylish Regency cream-and-white architecture, creating an elegant Esplanade which makes for a relaxing stroll whilst looking out towards Beer Head. Sidmouth boasts one of the few public access observatories, the Norman Lockyer Observatory, complete with planetarium. There are a variety of attractions around Sidmouth including Pecorama with award-winning miniature railway and gardens, the Seaton tramway and the Otter Estuary Nature Reserve. Families will love the beaches, walkers will enjoy the South West coastal path and at the end of the day there are plenty of tea rooms, cafes and welcoming country inns to relax and refresh you.
