“Perfect place to get away from everyone with access to everywhere”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Tucked away down a country lane, away from the busy Exeter-Sidmouth main road, this novel architectural tower offers three storey privacy. If you're looking for a tranquil retreat for one, or a romantic nest for two, this smart, well-appointed vertical cottage is an unexpected find in the heart of the lush Devon country. Having been in the summer when the gardens are thriving I wondered if the middle of December would be bleak, but Southerton Tower did not disappoint. The gas burning stove creates a cozy atmosphere after a day of walking, shopping or sea breezes. Close to pubs, Waitrose and minutes from Sidmouth or Budleigh seafront, Southern T is a country-lover's dream.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

If you like to be far from the madding crowd, The Southern Water Tower's for you. Near to everything, and yet far from the throngs, this delightful and thoughtful conversion is a slice of heaven. First the setting is magical: lush and loved gardens complete with a lettuce patch and quiet benches. Then the decor, simple, sublime and very stylish. Spread over three floors it's a perfect pied a terre for anyone looking for a different and dramatic setting. Waking up to the birds was so peaceful and having a wine in the courtyard was perfect way to end a day of seaside fun. Close to Waitrose, cozy pubs and the beach of Sidmouth, this tower soars above the places I have stayed.

“Interesting and homely cottage for two”
Reviewed 29 January 2015 for a stay in June 2014

Southerton Tower is a lovely place to stay for a quiet trip to the beautiful Devon countryside.

The cottage is spread over the three floors, with a kitchen/living room downstairs, and a bathroom on the middle floor which leads up to the bedroom at the top. It's been well converted and is decorated wonderfully throughout.

The property is unlike anything else I've ever stayed in, and during the summer months the small front garden with a BBQ and outdoor heater make it a very nice place for a relaxing dew days away from it all.

Liked best: The design of the building is so quirky - the three single room floors make it a really interesting place to stay.
