“Beautiful oasis”
Reviewed November 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Have now visited this beautiful cottage for three years running and have already booked for next year. The cottage could not be better, characterful while having all modern amenities and is immaculately clean. Everything in Sidmouth is an easy stroll away, including an excellent choice of restaurants, while Hemphaye is in its own oasis of quiet amongst stunning gardens. Selwyn and Geoffrey are perfect hosts, always friendly and helpful. Can't recommend this property highly enough for those who want to get away from busy lives and to ditch the car!

The cottage and gardens were first class. Design, maintenance, service and attention to detail were outstanding. Have booked a return visit for next year. Just too good not to visit again

“First Class”
Reviewed November 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Quality accommodation in a lovely quiet area of Sidmouth. Everything was immaculate and luxurious with everything you need. A friendly warm welcome by Selwyn and Hazel. Easily accessible into town, perfect location for our week in Sidmouth. Would highly recommend we have already booked for next year.
