With its elegant interior, period features and position just moments away from the town's pretty pebble beach and high street, Poplar Cottage creates an idyllic retreat on Devon's east coast; equally suited to blissful family holidays and luxury stays. Recently renovated to an exceptional standard, the house which has been professionally styled, flows effortlessly between its two floors, offering guests light and airy downstairs living, and spacious bedrooms above. Combining old-world glamour with up-to-date chic, an original staircase, sash windows and ornate fireplaces juxtapose contemporary furnishings and tasteful accessories, all basking in the floods of natural daylight that stream in from virtually every angle.

The ground floor kitchen and open plan dining room have a touch of French farmhouse. The centre-piece Aga cooker invites guests to roast or bake to their hearts’ content.There are doors leading outside to the secluded courtyard garden, where family meals can be shared and enjoyed. To the opposite side of the hallway the sitting room has two separate seating areas with a large comfortable corner sofa at the far end and a snug with gas fire and desk area at the other. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and utility area housing a washing machine and separate tumble dryer.

The property’s three bedrooms comfortably accommodate six and offer versatile sleeping configurations, so families and groups of friends are able to request an arrangement that suits. The Master bedroom with super king bed enjoys a sea glimpse and has an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath, while the remaining two bedrooms share a family bathroom complete with bath and separate shower.

Poplar Cottage has a sunny west-facing walled courtyard garden which is a wonderful place for savouring an afternoon drink or two, and an outdoor dining suite along with charcoal BBQ means alfresco feasts can be enjoyed. Private off-street parking for one car can be found to the back of the cottage which is situated on Fore Street Hill just metres from both the high street and the beach.

Golden Wedding Anniversary stay

What a wonderful cottage and great location close to the sea in Budleigh Salterton. We have visited this area many times over the past 5o years and staying in Poplar Cottage proved the best ever. Faultless luxury. We will be back!

Comfortable cottage, great location

This is a lovely cottage is in a great spot, very close to the sea and the high street but still quiet and relaxing. The living room is very nicely set out for a small group or family to spend time together in the evenings and the TV is excellent. The showers are fantastic, great water pressure. The house was really clean and the housekeeper Paula was very obliging when we needed a little help. Having a parking spot in very handy too. The only downside is the Aga which is a pain to use if you do a lot of cooking though it does keep the kitchen very cosy.

Paul, 03 Mar 2024

Poplar Cottage review

Accessing the cottage with the double lock we struggled with ,otherwise it was a delightful cottage, ideal for visiting our family in Budleigh.We could not fault it in any way .

Alan, 29 Dec 2023

Hi Alan, Thankyou for taking the time to make a review on your stay at one of our properties. We are so glad to hear you had a delightful stay and you could not fault the property in any way.

A fabulous stay in a perfect seaside home

Poplar Cottage is a real gem. We had a lovely few days there at the end of November, enjoying the luxury and comfort of this well-equipped, warm and spacious house which had almost everything anyone could wish for, including being a stones throw from the beach and all the joys of winter seascapes and swimming. It was an unexpected bonus to have a dedicated parking space for making arrival and departure as easy as could be. Poplar Cottage is a great base for exploring the nearby towns of Sidmouth, Exmouth and as well as the Jurassic coast not far away. It is directly on the route of some great walks and cycle rides and nearby some great country pubs too. We could not recommend more highly and hope to be back again soon

Mary, 13 Dec 2023
