Such a delightful, charming holiday accommodation. We were thrilled with this TripAdvisor find of Puffins in Sidmouth, Devon. The house provided excellent facilities, comfort, tranquility and relaxation superbly. It was perfect for us to escape the hubbub of every day for a little while. We shall be back without a doubt!

“The great reviews you read are correct.”
Reviewed 17 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Everything you need Liz has provided.The welcoming cream tea on arrival,the flowers and so many other friendly touches makes you feel at home and relaxed.The location near The Byes makes the walk to the centre of town quiet and interesting.Coastal walks are right from the cottage.This place is perfect for children also.If I am in the area again it is somewhere I would return to again.

It was lovely to read your review and rewarding to hear that you and your daughter enjoyed your stay so much especially as you had travelled such a long way. Most of The Southwest Coast Path is stunning and the East Devon Section certainly doesn't disappoint! Thankyou Celia for appreciating Puffins, you would be both very welcome to stay again. Best wishes.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 25 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Stayed here with a friend for 3 nights. The cottage was delightful - it was spotlessly clean, had everything you could want including a cream tea, fresh flowers and Prosecco on arrival. We went on some stunning walks in the local area - full details of the walks and other places of interest were all in the cottage which was really useful. The cottage is a short, flat walk from the local shops and the seafront - perfect location! We will definitely be returning!

“Review on 6 The Puffins”
Reviewed 22 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We have rented houses in Sidmouth before so know the whole area well. We wanted a little base not far from the sea front that was clean and comfy. Puffins was just that. The Byes were new to us and a delight. Very friendly place. The cottage had a very comfortable bed and hot water a plenty.Kitchen had everything we needed and a nice dinng area.
The only thing I missed was a really big comfy sofa but they have done their best with the space available. Really missed Wi-Fi as well. This is a really truthful personal preferences and wouldn't stop me coming again. We had a lovely time there and felt very welcome.

Thankyou for your comments. I am really pleased you enjoyed Puffins and found The Byes and appreciate your feedback re sofa and WIFI. As you mention , I have tried to do the best with the lounge furniture but t still look out for a small soft sofa! I had hoped our new IKEA Store might have come up trumps! As for WIFI I can only apologise at present.
It's great to hear you would stay again and I look forward to hearing from you. Thankyou for looking after the Cottage.Best wishes Liz
