We left our ‘corporate’ jobs to ‘live the dream’ and took over running Willow Bridge in late 2019. We updated and decorated the B&B during the winter before we were effectively 'on hold' due to the Covid pandemic and now we hope you will visit us and that you find our friendly approach and the fresh style welcoming and relaxing. We moved to Sidmouth from Liverpool and Manchester and we have definitely settled in 'slowly' to the pace of life in Devon.

Paul, originally from Anfield, is still missing Liverpool FC but a local pub shows the games! There are some great local restaurants we enjoy and neither of us can resist a cake.

The other member of the Willow Bridge family is our dog Chewie who loves running in The Byes and on the beach when he can. We all enjoy a long walk and have hiked with him round the Sid Valley Ring, across Peak Hill to Otterton and Budleigh and up Salcombe Hill and beyond. He is a super friendly dog and he is also very boisterous so while you may see him ‘out and about’ he is never in the B&B itself!

Lovely start to the new season

The season has now started and the weather has been unusually good. This means we have already been out and about walking and enjoying the local views. We are looking forward to a full season of social events and look forward to welcoming guests old and new to our lovely B&B.

Opening soon 2022

We are getting ready to open on March 2nd and we are looking forward to seeing guests, returning and new!

The end of the season 2021

Although it was a late start to the season it has been a busy one with new guests and many return visitors making running the B&B feel hugely enjoyable in 2021. Having been open during December, and with the B&B feeling very Christmassy, we are now closed and all being well we will re-open on 2nd March 2022. We look forward to another busy year here in Sidmouth and it would be great to see you all again. Have a lovely Christmas break and we hope 2022 is a great year for you, your friends and your families.
