View Room Information
A beautiful double-fronted Georgian home situated in the traditional seaside town of Budleigh Salterton.

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.

The money is simply reserved and then released afterwards if there is no claim. We will contact you nearer the time of your arrival to arrange this.
