We left our ‘corporate’ jobs to ‘live the dream’ and took over running Willow Bridge in late 2019. We have updated and decorated the B&B and we really hope you find the fresh ‘pared back’ style welcoming and relaxing. We moved to Sidmouth from Liverpool and Manchester and we are definitely settling in slowly to the pace of life in Devon.

Paul, originally from Anfield, is missing Liverpool FC but a local pub shows the games so he can sometimes be found there! There are some great local restaurants we enjoy; our favourite which is 5 mins walk away is Neil's and neither of us can resist a cake at Someday Something or The Clock Tower. We are also both eagerly awaiting the opening of Rockfish here in Sidmouth in the old Drill Hall near the Gig Rowing club.

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 up Salcombe Hill to the Donkey Sanctuary. 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!
