The end of summer

It has been a lovely summer in Sidmouth and September has been absolutely stunning with our guests enjoying the sunshine and warm sunny days to get out and about in the local area. Many of our guests have been those who had to cancel earlier in the year and some guests have returned for a second break. The local pubs and restaurants have all done a great job with getting their new ways of working up and running and our guests have been full of compliments for the places they have eaten dinner and lunch! They even gave us some recommendations which we have enjoyed trying out! Nothing however beats grilled lobster and fries on the beach with a bottle of Shingle Bay back in August from #PeaGreenBoat or some delicious cheese and salumi from #TheLittleDeli. One of our guests took one of their deli platters home for tea - and I can understand why!

It has been our very first season at the B&B and what a season it has been! We have been open for just 12 weeks and it seems that we may all be facing more strict rules in the near future but we hope that guests booked over the next few weeks will be able to enjoy their holiday before we close for the season at the end of October. All being well we will re-open and be in full swing by March 2021 and we won't be the only ones hoping that next year is a better one. But what couldn't be better are our lovely guests - from those returning for the 5th, 15th or 20th time (honestly) or for those who have tried a B&B break with us for the first time. We have had some lovely comments in our guest book and on-line and nothing makes us happier than guests who have had a great time with us. We look forward to seeing them all again next year!

In the meantime let's all enjoy the end of summer and look forward to a peaceful autumn - we are planning lots of walks to enjoy the lovely views again before it gets too cold! Share your happy holiday photos with us on our facebook page @willowbridgesidmouth
