We have stayed in Grace Darling about five times now. The cottage has everything you need. It is always very clean. Good location. Good for coastal walks. Sidmouth is such a good place with lots of independent shops. The garden is lovely. We have spent time sitting outside eating our meals. Parking a bonus. The owner is one of the nicest people you could meet, so friendly and helpful. Lovely homemade flapjacks on arrival. We just never want to leave. Cant wait to hopefully go back again. Thankyou.
