I stayed at the Groveside with a friend who was heavily pregnant at the time. Even before we arrived, at the time of booking, Lin went to a lot of trouble to make sure that we were both comfortable.

Very friendly place and great hosts, very relaxed and was able to completely unwind. The continental breakfast is fab - I had breakfast in my room which I like as I can completely relax and plan the day. The location is great, really close to the shops and beach This was my second visit and I'll come again. Mike

The rooms are well equipped and comfortable and little... More

A warm welcome, very good facilities, clean and comfortable room and delicious beautifully cooked and presented breakfasts. A very pleasant guest house in a delightful small seaside town, the ideal short break. Highly recommended, we will be returning when we can.

Nothing is too much trouble for this couple and Alan is always attentive over breakfast, without being intrusive! Sidmouth was enchanting as always, and we look forward to our... More
