  • "Beautiful house ideally situated, 15 minute walk to the town and beach."

    There were a few things lacking that would turn this into a five star stay. No parasol outside which is needed. No welcome pack which on enquiring with Sykes had been forgotten about. This contained the wi-fi password which they did send me in a message. Not enough towels for a house sleeping 8. Only 2 tea towels, no place mats or coasters. No full length mirror by a plug to do hair. Top floor bedroom very hot, need fans, the en suite bathroom has no storage/shelves for toiletries ect. Living room needs a coffee table as no where to put a drink. I would expect basic supplies of cleaning items along with tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread etc. Regarding cleanliness it wasn't high standard which I expected considering the cost to stay here. The beds were really comfortable with quality bedding and pillows. I would definitely stay again and would recommend. If the above issues are addressed it would be perfect.

About the location


Exeter 16 miles.

Sidmouth is an elegant seaside resort on the south Devon stretch of Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site of great natural beauty. Here is where the River Sid cuts through the Devon hills to meet the sea at Lyme Bay, creating a clean pebbly beach, giving way to golden sands at low tide backed by dramatic red cliffs creating a safe family beach with rockpools and safe bathing. Sidmouth is lined with stylish Regency cream-and-white architecture, creating an elegant Esplanade which makes for a relaxing stroll whilst looking out towards Beer Head. Sidmouth boasts one of the few public access observatories, the Norman Lockyer Observatory, complete with planetarium. There are a variety of attractions around Sidmouth including Pecorama with award-winning miniature railway and gardens, the Seaton tramway and the Otter Estuary Nature Reserve. Families will love the beaches, walkers will enjoy the South West coastal path and at the end of the day there are plenty of tea rooms, cafes and welcoming country inns to relax and refresh you.
