Situated on the headlands overlooking the regency town of Sidmouth, Seagull Cottage is nestled amongst ancient hedgerows on the Stoneleigh Holiday park.

Reviewed 29 Dec 2019

Overall the holiday was ok although the whole area had taken a battering with the recent rains and the grounds were sodden. I would have preferred that the electric costs were built into the rental costs thus avoiding having to feed the meter with coins. The roads around the site are in poor condition with potholes that make nice boating lakes after it had rained. Definitely more suited to 4x4 vehicles than a standard car. The site looks like it is in need of TLC and regular maintenance. Seagull cottage was ok but maybe is due a bit of a makeover as the fro t door could be a bit draughty where it had swollen with the rains and signs of dampness in some corners following rains.
