“We stayed at the Little Anchorage for a few days at half term with our 4 year old and 2 year old and had a lovely time. Jane was very helpful and there were lots of nice touches to welcome us. She also kindly allowed us to stay a little past our checkout time to watch the rugby world cup final! The open plan kitchen dining room is great for families and the living room was very cosy on a rainy October night. Equally, I'm sure the decking outside would be lovely in the summer. The kitchen was very well equipped, WiFi was good and there were lots of games to play and even an Xbox if that's your thing. Location was good too - the view down to the beach is lovely and you're just a few steps from the coast path.It's about half a mile into the centre of town downhill but a steep walk back up again. There's plenty to do in the local area and it's definitely worth a trip to Beer to pick up some seafood for dinner from the fishmonger on the beach. Overall, we'd highly recommend it. Great stay - Thank you Jane.”
Where is it?
Sidmouth sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is famous for many things, including its royal connections and for being a major winner in Britain in Bloom, but this seaside town has so much more to offer than owers and fossils.
Life in this town never stops, there is a folk festival, a literary festival, a sea festival, a walking festival and a science festival. If you are sporty then you are spoilt for choice too, so many activities to choose from. August is regatta time and the prestigious Red Arrows help add to the celebrations. There are wonderful gardens to explore in the town and a thriving theatre and museum. Even an observatory. There are Sunday evening concerts and even a Boxing Day swim for the brave.
If you have children or grandchildren, the beach is a must, and the sand is great for building sandcastles, (when the tide is out). Or take them sailing or fishing, or even simply walk along the promenade and enjoy an ice cream.
The town is within easy reach of splendid Exeter, with its main line connections with London Paddington and just half an hour from the regional airport with its domestic and international flights.
