About
Description
The Salty Monk is the perfect b&b in sidmouth to use as a base for exploring East Devon or as an escape for a romantic break, wedding or honeymoon. Originally a Salt House used by the Benedictine Monks who traded ...More Salt at Exeter Cathedral, this Devon restaurant with rooms is situated in the Sid Valley just one mile from Sidmouth town centre and close to Lyme Regis, Honiton and Cathedral City of Exeter. There are many fantastic walks in the immediate area with the Jurassic coastal path and the famous Donkey Sanctuary just up the hill from us. Both chefs by trade, with an eye for meticulous detail, we pride ourselves on using the best of Devon's larder with home grown or organic produce wherever possible. Our two AA Rosette restaurant provides elegant surroundings in which to enjoy a relaxing or romantic dinner. As everything is made on the premises, people with dietary requirements have no need to worry. Less
