Welcome to our house

Situated just a pleasant 15-minute walk away from the beautiful Sidmouth seafront, Cotmaton House used to be a hotel before being bought by the Abbeyfield Sidmouth Society in 1977. Since then, it has provided supported housing accommodation for older people who wish to remain independent and be part of an active, sociable community.

Set within beautiful grounds, we have eight en-suite rooms within the main house, most of which have views of the beautiful garden.

At the front of the house there is a separate two-bedroomed bungalow, One courtyard apartment, and a further five modern bungalow apartments in the grounds. 

Residents benefit from a very pleasant, large communal lounge on the ground floor, a relaxing summer house and a beautifully well-maintained garden where you can enjoy the fresh sea air while admiring the fantastic wildlife that often come to pay us a visit such as foxes, squirrels and birds.

On the ground floor, you'll also find a spacious dining room where our residents like to come together for lunch and supper. Most rooms offer tea and coffee making facilities in a kitchenette area and there is communal laundry provision for residents to use. We also have lift access throughout the main house.

Cotmaton House has plenty of parking for cars and scooters for those who wish to bring their vehicle with them.

We love going on trips out together, whether to garden centres, local attractions such as Exeter Cathedral or National Trust locations. Within the house, we also have plenty of fun activities for you to join in with if you wish, such as live music and performances from the local school children.

With the airport close by and being just a 10-minute walk away from the nearest bus stop, we are lucky to have fantastic transport links here at Cotmaton House. We are also in very close proximity to the town centre, that offers plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops for you to enjoy. There is also a cinema, theatre and swimming pool close by.
