We really loved The Old Reservoir. It is a modern apartment with everything we needed. Very well appointed and clean. Open plan in the main room, giving plenty of space and light for the living, dining and kitchen areas. The property is at the top of a hill but is sat in some lovely grounds. Plenty of parking space. There's an attractive 25 minute Read morewalk into town, but bus stops are at the bottom of the hill, plus shops and a pub. Sidmouth town and sea front are beautiful. We'd love to return. Hide

We have just enjoyed a wonderful week in Devon. This was our second time staying in this property and it was just as good as the first. Em and Russ are super welcoming. The property is great and in a fantastic location to head out from to enjoy so many different days out. We would definitely recommend a stay in this property.

Beautiful accommodation. Spotlessly clean and very spacious, with everything needed for your stay. There is a hill up to the property but we didn't find that a problem. Hosts Emma and Russ that live on the upper level of the property were very friendly and welcoming.

Wonderful and unique location. Spacious and very comfortable accommodation. Extremely kind and generous owners. Five stars all the way. Thank you Russ and Emma for letting us share your haven. ( Yes it is a very long steep drive but worth every step!)

We (me, my husband, a 6 year old and a 4 year old) stayed at the Old Reservoir for a week at the end of May and we had a fantastic time. Russ and Emma were both very welcoming and helpful. The property suited our needs perfectly as the children were able to share the second bedroom, with one in the main bed and one on the sofa bed. It was in a greaRead moret location to visit local sights and had a bus stop a short walk away. The children loved meeting Phoebe the pig! The property was spotlessly clean. Hide
