Cadhay is a beautiful and historic Tudor manor house located in Ottery St Mary in East Devon, only a short distance from Sidmouth town centre. With lily coated ponds and beautiful gardens, Cadhay is a magnificent Tudor Manor house offering first class accommodation, a stunning venue for a range of occasions and a wonderful place to while away the hours in tranquil gardens.
The Manor House itself offers luxurious self-catering accommodation for up to 22 people, providing a remarkable and magical place to stay full of the grandeur of centuries past. Despite its history, Cadhay is far from a museum, the manor has been beautifully restored and offers modern comforts, it’s a truly comfortable place to stay in rural Devon with the past all around you and all the luxuries of the modern world.
Alongside the Manor House, there are three holiday cottages onsite, providing additional accommodation for 12-14 people. Two of the cottages sleep 6 and the third sleeps 2.
The Coach House is a large family friendly holiday cottage, it is the largest of the three cottages on the Cadhay Estate and overlooks the main house without infringing on the privacy. It is a light and spacious property with many of the original period features, excellent antiques, interesting paintings and good quality furnishings.
Next door is The Stables, which opens up directly into a walled garden converted into allotments which are used by the local community. The cottage has exposed beams, good quality furniture, and a cosy woodburner giving it a cosy, warm atmosphere. The well equipped kitchen gives you everything you need for a wonderful self catering break.
The smallest of the three cottages is the Cider Press. It is a single storey building standing on its own which has been converted into a comfortable cottage with either a double or twin room. It is spacious, filled with light and has panoramic views across the East Hill.
