On arrival we were greeted with breathtaking views. Lynne and Pete were very welcoming. Beautifully appointed bedrooms with an amazing selection of teas, coffees and very naughty biscuits! We enjoyed a very relaxed and unrushed breakfast cooked to perfection. After breakfast each day we did the National Trust walk which has spectacular views of Sidmouth and Sid Bay. This was... More

Beautiful property, great location and really lovely bedrooms; sparkling clean and well equipped. The breakfast was the best I've ever had (sorry mum) but best of all are the two hosts - Lynne and Pete. Pete dropped us into town, sorted a route to cycle the next day and even prepped our bikes for the journey. Truly superb service from... More

The location, high on the hill overlooking Sidmouth, is beautiful, the house is immaculately decorated and the bedroom so comfortable. We particularly loved the gorgeous garden and decking area complete with squashy... More
