The room was compact but well organized, equipped and comfortable. Visually pleasing. Great shower and comfortable bed. Central location for walking to the shops, beach, etc. Ruth and family were delightful. Highly recommended.
Cedar shade is located about half a mile back from Sidmouth sea front. The guest accommodation is part of an extension to a 1920's house and is fully self contained from the owners own accommodation. For your money you get a bedroom approximately five metres by three, which has a double bed [ not divisible singles], a chest of drawers, small breakfast table and chairs, and bedside cabinet. Off this main room is a 'wetroom' shower and toilet separated by a small lobby area which contains your coffee maker, hot water dispenser, fridge and shelving for the breakfast items provide by the owners. There is now TV or radio, but internet connection allowed us to listen to radio on line, though I am not sure if the connection speed is good enough to stream/download films or TV.
I would have to say 'why bother ' with TV, Sidmouth is an attractive seaside resort which unlike some appears to be holding it's own and possibly even thriving.
Ruth and family made us very welcome, the breakfast items of cereals ,fruit, juice, tea. Coffee, pastries etc. were always fresh and of very good quality. Bedding, towels etc. were clean and fresh, the room was well decorated and had large patio doors which are your own entrance, and open onto a very small patio area with a table and two chairs.
Outside is a parking area for your own use, which was fine for our medium size hatchback, but would be a bit tight if you own a full blown 4x4 or similar.
Sidmouth itself has a good range of restaurants and pubs serving food for your evening meal, and on the whole would recommend both the town and cedar shade cottage if you are looking for a few days away. My wife and I spent four nights/five days here and would gladly visit again.
