    We stayed for 2 weeks in August, a family group of 9, and it was perfect. The house was beautiful, in a great setting with the most amazing views. It was secluded and private but near enough to walk to the local village and just a 10 minute drive to Sidmouth and the sea. The house has a lovely family feel to it and was big enough so that we all had enough space if we needed it. The garden was lovely for the children and we all enjoyed the tennis court. The owners were great and very accommodating and made the whole stay very relaxing. I wholeheartedly recommend Castle Hill House and hope to return in the future.

Another great feature is Dogs are allowed.

    We've just returned home from a fabulous week staying at Castle Hill House with our family. (9 adults) This spacious house is truly stunning and beautifully appointed, with everything you could wish for in a holiday home. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses for everyone, even with the dishwasher fully loaded! The bedrooms were so comfortable and there was always plenty of hot water in the lovely bath and shower rooms. We only really used the large kitchen/diner/family room, although there was another lounge and separate dining room if we had wished to use them! We didn't have the best of weather so the basket of logs for the wood burner were much appreciated. Our dog enjoyed her stay too, happily wandering around the spacious grounds and she was grateful for the "dog welcome pack!" The large gardens were beautiful with the most amazing panoramic views around the valley and down to the sea. If the weather had been a bit better we would of enjoyed sitting and eating outside in these relaxing and peaceful surroundings. We all had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend Castle Hill House. Thank -you to the owners and manager for a lovely week in Sidbury.

    This is a fabulous house, beautifully presented with wonderful views. Thoughtful welcome treats for us and for our dog! The house was just perfect for our family group of 11 people and 1 dog. Well placed for exploring the area. We found the owners and the property manager to be really helpful. We certainly hope to stay again and recommend to others.

    We stayed for the May Bank Holiday weekend - a group of 12 adults - and had an amazing time! Castle Hill House is beautifully located up the side of the valley offering great views from almost every room. The communal areas are spacious, comfortable and well decorated. All of the bedrooms were clean and comfortable - 5 being generously sized and the 6th only a little more cozy. The whole house feels far bigger on the inside than the pictures make it seem. We sat all 12 of us around the table in the kitchen to eat a cooked meal (there is a regular oven and hob for those not familiar with the Aga!). The surrounding garden was beautiful - also with fantastic view - and the front lawn would be perfect for a game of croquet or lawnbowls. There is a set of outdoor table and chairs on the patio as well as other chairs and benches dotted around the grounds. The tennis court is good fun but be warned, it is rather old and tired and the balls may not bounce as you expect! The village of Sidbury is quite small with very few shops but is only minutes away from Sidford and Sidmouth where there are plenty of places to shop and eat out if you wish. We visited Sidmouth and enjoyed a wonderful stroll along the seafront with ice cream. Castle Hill House was perfect for our stress-free and relaxed weekend. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

    The views from Castle Hill House is a (big) gem with lovely views over the countryside. The house had everything we required for our stay. The bedding, towels and most of the kitchen items appeared completely new. We mainly lived in the large kitchen/dining/living room downstairs, it was plenty large enough for the seven of us. However there is a proper dining room which would be great for a formal sit down dinner. The owners sent through all the details relating to the property in advance of our stay and were very responsive. We would highly recommend!

    We stayed at Castle Hill House for 7 days as a whole family including three under 5year olds and eight adults. The outside space is large and luckily for us with the weather we were able to enjoy this and the uninterrupted beautiful views of Sidmouth and the countryside. The house itself had a fully equipped kitchen will all necessary utensils and ample crockery. The quality of the bedsheets and towels was very much appreciated and the thought and care that had clearly gone into ensuring the house was very clean and ready for us to settle into. There is lots of activities local to the house that made the location ideal for the family including The Donkey Sanctuary and Branscombe Beach. This holiday house was perfect for our large group and we would return for a holiday in the future. Thank you for our stay!
