It felt like I was visiting family. Well looked after from the start, Leslie welcomed me with a warm cup of tea and cake! Breakfast every morning was perfect, bed more than comfortable, room nice and cosy :) I was sad I had to leave!

Leslie and Ron are super welcoming and made my stay a home from home. It's newly decorated, clean, super close to the sea and shops and the breakfast is really fantastic. There's lots to do locally and it's all walking distance and in the quiet part of Sidmouth

The age and character of this charming and beautiful guest house is not the only aspect of the experience which captures you - Rod and Lesley are perhaps some of the friendliest and helpful people one could hope to meet. Rod, awaiting my arrival, met me at the bottom of the steps and carried my (far-too-heavy) suitcase right up to...

Lesley and Rod were very welcoming and I stayed in a single room which was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is chosen the night before so it's freshly cooked for you, it was delicious along with fresh coffee, juice, cereal and fresh fruit. Hoping to return soon!

My friend and I spent 4 days here late September. I had not read the trip advisor reviews beforehand and only ended up at Glendevon after having found it difficult to get availability in other guest houses. As it was this turned out in our favour. I can honestly say this is one of the best guest houses I have...
