  • "Broom cottage was very comfortable and extremely well equipped."

    The driveway is very heavily potholed and should be repaired by the site owners. Sorry for the negative,but you did ask!

  • "My Aunt & I stayed at Broom Cottage for a week last week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely spacious property that is exactly as advertised."

    We are hoping to return next year. The property offers everything needed (and more) for a relaxed, peaceful stay in beautiful surroundings.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Wine and fudge appreciated."

    Did not expect such a very narrow approach road. The onsite roads of Stoneleigh Holiday park itself were full of large pot holes which made usning them precarious..

    All on one level and surrounded with safe places to walk for us oldies and our young grandson. The furniture was so tasteful and atmospheric.Huge windows allowed access to the views on all sides.

  • "Lovely cottage in a very rural setting."

    Cottage very comfortable, but own transport is essential. Going out at night on foot is not advised, as there is nowhere to walk to and no pavements. This site is ideal for couples with young children, or older people who do not venture out at night anyway. The Donkey Sanctuary nearby, is a fascinating place to visit and there are many interesting places to visit in the surrounding area. I would not recommend arriving at night , as there is no lighting whatsoever. The owners left us a bottle of wine and a box of fudge, which was a lovely gesture, and the cottage had everything required for our stay.

  • "The cottage is set in a lovely quiet holiday village, with lovely noises from the nearby donkey sanctuary heard on occasion."

    It was nice to see the sea. We picked the cottage as it came with a garden, but the fence was unable to contain our 16 month old, so we didn't feel safe letting her out whilst we sat in the cottage to look on. The facilities were good in terms of appliances in the cottage. Shame there are no shops on site. The main bedroom was dusty and their was an old deodorant can on the floor when we arrived. The bathroom extractor fan really needs a clean, it is full of dirt and debris. The main concern was the disposable lighter, left on the TV stand, that our 16 month old found as we arrived and were unpacking. The cottage is in a good location and we were able to explore many parts of Devon during our stay.

  • "The cottage was so comfortable and clean with everything we needed and more."

    It was lovely sitting outside surrounded by the peaceful park and a little peak of the sea. Nice seeing the donkeys as we passed each day. Great location for exploring the area. Cottage had all the personal touches with plenty of room. A nice touch leaving wine and fudge for our arrival. Would definitely recommend. X

    Thank you so much for your feedback on your stay at Broom Cottage. We really appreciate it. Jean and Kevin Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very nice and clean, well equipped with everything you need."

    The beds are very comfortable. The lane up to the site is very narrow but this did not cause us any problems. it means people go slower and are looking out for people which I think make it safer. We felt the let down was the grassed area out side the cottage. It was not mown very well or edged. There was a thistle growing on the edge of the patio. It would have been nice to have a couple of nice chairs and a small table on the patio as well as the wooden bench's, On a positive the patio did catch the sun nicely all day. We enjoyed our stay

  • "The cottage is great, it has everything you could need and was cleaned to a very high standard."

    The welcoming gifts were really appreciated and is reflective of the efforts the cottage owners make to ensure people have a positive experience whilst staying there. Unfortunately the road surface on the site is extremely poor in places and whilst it shouldn't spoil your holiday it simply isn't acceptable and needs addressing by the 'Stoneleigh Holiday Village' site owners.

    There was only one downside, and that was you had to drive a couple of miles to the nearest supermarket, not on site. But you can get round that. Would still go back plenty to do within a short distance.

  • "Great place!"

    Didn't realise how close to the beach it was! Less than a mile to the sea if you walked down the cliff path, and Sidmouth beach (near Jacob's ladder) wasn't crowded with close parking and facilities. Hair dryers were also in the bedrooms, which I don't think was listed. Never had stayed in such a lovely place before with the family. Very quiet. Really great value when compared to other places. The numbering system in the 'village' was confusing, but oh well. Have booked again! Lovely to be greeted with a bottle of wine and card. The owners were also helpful when I messaged them about a couple of things. Also visited the National Trust Places A la Rounde and Killerton. Just a fab place to recharge my batteries ... and of course, the lovely weather really helped. Didn't want to come home!

    Lovely spot on the site with a view of the sea at Weston Mouth. Convenient for visits to the Jurassic Coast towns.

We appreciated the wine and fudge and welcome on arrival. We shall be coming back again.

  • "There is no WiFi at this cottage despite what it says in the listing - this is important to some people so please update the listing as soon as possible."

    The walls between this cottage and the attached neighbours are paper thin. If your neighbours are quiet or the cottage unoccupied then there is no problem, otherwise conversations can be heard quite clearly through the wall.

    Thank you for the feedback there were some issues with the wifi being intermittent but this has now been fully rectified. The bungalow is traditionally built with cavity walls. Kind regards, Property Owner

Spotlessly clean and generous gift of fudge and wine left for us but also, coffee, tea, washing powder, handwash, loo rolls etc. Every utensil you can think of is in the bungalow. All you need to do is to pack your bag and toothbrush and a bit of food and turn up and enjoy! One small point Wifi is intermittent.

    The owners had put a great deal of thought into their guests needs and comfort; fixtures, fittings and accessories were all very good quality and the property was extremely warm, comfortable and well maintained. The only negative point is the standard of the road through the holiday village to individual properties. The road is very heavily pitted with large pot holes which are impossible to avoid and for this reason alone, I would not return to the site.

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.
