“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We were lucky enough to be sent here from the information centre and were pleasantly surprised.It is lovely and clean, very comfortable beds & breakfast was fantastic. We were made to feel very welcome by Graham & Jackie who has a wick sense of humour! A bonus is there is plenty of off street parking and the garden is just beautiful, would definitely recommend this place.

Having been given the address of this guest house by a friend,he gave no hint as to what it was like.Run by Graham and Jackie,it is a delight to stay there,i have never slept in a more comfortable bed,and came away with the mattress name.The food,top notch,very clean and tidy,entertaining to say the least,i was made to feel really at home,will certainly visit again when in the area,

Room Tip: no need,it is a lovely place to stay,would recommend it to anybody.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Southcombe Guest House (21st-25th April) for Bed and Breakfast and Evening meal and from the moment we arrived at the house we were made to feel very welcome. The proprieteres, Graham and Jackie Kennett showed usaround and although we had nevermet before we immediately felt a sif we were old friendsThey wereveery kind, friendly and nothing was to much trouble I am disabled and use a wheelchair and we were offered the us of one of Jackies electric mobility buggies and Graham even transported us in his caron acouple of occasions.The accomodation was adequate, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The meals were lovely-home cooked and ample. The gardens were well cared for, and looked beautiful, but unfortunately the wet weather prevented us us from making the most of them. WE would thoroughly recommend the Southcombe to antone, and definitely hope to return.

Room Tip: back rooms have no road noise

Very clean, good facilities, lovely food and great hosts. Had a fantastic time. So handily placed a few minutes walk from the centre of Sidmouth and with a car park.

We absolutely love visiting Graham and Jackie at Southcombe. From the first moment, you feel at home and relaxed and within minutes are chuckling with Graham about anything and everything. Jackie is a wonderful hostess and is so bright and cheery in the morning whilst efficiently serving a first rate breakfast. We love the way Graham and Jackie get everyone chatting - so effortless and fun.
We look forward to many more visits in the future.
Thanks so much. :)

Room Tip: We like the front bedrooms as they have a seating area in the bay window. Very comfortable.

We spent 3 nights late September on way to and from Cornwall. Our first b&b for 30 years. We travelled down from Essex and were bowled over by the welcome, even though we were an hour early. Graham and Jackie are such friendly funny people we felt like we had known them for years. The rooms were spotless, the garden amazing, and the food teriffic. I would thoroughly recommend a stay. There is a great atmosphere and much laughter. Hope to return next year.
