We stayed in esplanade for three nights from the 29th October to the 1st November and had a lovely time. The apartment is very warm and welcoming and had everything that we needed for an extremely comfortable break. We have stayed in Sidmouth many times, but this must be rated as one of the best. The location of Esplanade right on the seafront is an added bonus, to be able to look out from the window and watch the world go by is a treat itself, but being able to step out of the front door and right onto the seafront was wonderful. The first two days were ones of lovely warm sunshine for the time of year, but the winds and waves of the third day were very exciting. This is an apartment that I would not hesitate to recommend. Finbarr made contact to ensure that all was going well. It was reassuring to know that he was close by and ready to help if there were any problems (which fortunately there were not).
We enjoyed our stay very much but would just mention one or two points. Unless you have a small car the garage can be a problem as there is not much room for manoeuvrability to get in so after our first evening we parked in nearby Seafield Road which was much easier...
A few extra instructions for the Aga would be helpful if you have not used one before.
Also as we were there in November we had dark evenings and the lighting in the sitting room is very poor. Maybe a standard lamp would be a good idea.Also a mirror please in the twin bedroom.
Everything else was absolutely fine and we would certainly rent Heydons House again.
