Selwyn and Geoffrey run a wonderful cottage and we come back every year because everything is so clean, well-appointed and the gardens are particularly stunning. Another perfect stay!

“Thoroughly recommended.”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed a nice and relaxed stay at Hemphaye Cottage, where the accommodation is of a high standard. The grounds are also a delight and everything is very well kept and maintained. Selwyn and Geoffrey provided a warm and friendly greeting and were attentive throughout our stay. It is clear that they take great pride in their establishment - it is excellent and very well located to enjoy delightful Sidmouth

In Sidmouth there is a delightful seafront and lovely shops. Connaught Gardens, complete with tea shop and with Jacobs ladder down to the sea front are well worth a visit. There are lovely walks along the cliff-tops. Many places to eat - we particularly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and food at Blinis. Many other things to do a short car ride away - Seaton is just along the coast and has a tramway which runs up the valley to Colyton.
