Built in 1805 and converted in 1906, Auroras stunning accommodation even appealed to the world famous author JRR Tolkien, who occupied the building during his summer holidays from 1934 until 1938. Tolkein found Sidmouth restful and inspirational. The properties charm even allowed him to write a part of the Lord of the rings here. The accommodation enjoys a stunning drawing room with sash windows and a beautiful feature gothic style window enjoying glorious views to the sea across open greens, with feature fireplace and high ceilings. There are two large bedrooms, again both with sash windows affording stunning sea views, high ceilings and picture rails. A well-equipped bespoke kitchen has been sympathetically installed with granite effect work surfaces and cream fronted units and a white suite with twin sinks, panelled bath, WC and tiled flooring. Externally there is an allocated parking space with public gardens and the seafront nearby.
