About Claire Fuller

We always enjoyed visiting Devon when our son and daughter were growing up, we had some super family holidays together. Now they have left home we decided that it would be ideal to have a place to go to for holidays, where we can all meet up again and relax. We work long hours in our own businesses and look forward to spending quality time together here as often as we can.

The bungalow is very relaxing as it set in a peaceful setting with lots of gorgeous views. Although it is in a rural setting, there are so many places to visit within just a few miles.

We hope you enjoy spending time here as much as we do!

Claire Fuller purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Claire Fuller chose Sidmouth

We fell in love with this property when we first saw it in 2013.

Our bungalow is one of a small number of similar properties which are situated within Stoneleigh Holiday Village, just 3 miles from Sidmouth. The area is so peaceful, the views are amazing and being close to the Donkey Sanctuary is a definite bonus.

It's lovely to see the donkeys around and it's excellent to be close to so many wonderful flat, safe walks that are around the Donkey Sanctuary and available for all to enjoy. It always helps us to slow down and connect with nature.

The Donkey Sanctuary has recently opened a brand new cafe too, serving breakfasts from 9-11 am as well as light snacks throughout the day, all just a short walk away.

Until very recently our property has been run by a management company. We have now chosen to run it ourselves so that we can provide a personal, friendly service with the extra attention to detail that we always appreciate on holiday and feel sure that you will too.

Daisy - the name of our property was very comfortable and easy to stay in.

  • 4 of 5

The only problem we had was the very hot weather and the sun shone right in, through the skylight windows and the lounge patio doors. The heat was uncomfortable until the sun went down, and there was no shade.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review Rosie, we are glad you found Daisy comfortable and easy to stay in. We are sorry about the hot weather, unfortunately we can’t control the weather but when we have been there in warm weather we always draw all of the curtains before we go out, so that it is cooler when we get back; there is also a fan provided. We then open up the patio doors to let a gentle breeze in upon our return.

Relaxing bungalow

A lovely welcoming home, with all the finishing touches to make you feel relaxed. The finish was great and one level living suited us perfectly. Good location to explore from. The owners were so kind and helpful and we would recommend highly! Thanks for a great stay!

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the owners for our wonderful stay at Daisy! Checking in was very straight forward and it was so lovely to be provided with milk, biscuits, tea/coffee, shower gel - completely unexpected but it's those little extras that make your stay.

The cottage had everything we needed for our stay and more - fully equipped kitchen, reading books for the children as well as puzzles and DVDs. Beds were very comfortable and heating was efficient. Everything was impeccably clean and beautifully kept. Outdoor space was huge - lots of grass for children to run around on and the whole place felt very safe and secure. We often saw rabbits hopping in the grass which was a real treat! We don't get many of those here in London ;)

Just across the road from the main entrance you can find the gate into the donkey sanctuary - well worth a visit! We've been coming to Weston for a few years now and always make time to go here (sometimes daily!), It's a wonderful place, and with the new addition of "the Kitchen" cafe/restaurant there is even more reason to visit. We went for a cooked breakfast there one morning - very good food! The cakes looked impressive too. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options.

Stoneleigh is well located, not too far from all of the places we like to visit - Crealy, Pecorama, the beaches at Beer and Branscombe, Sidmouth, Otterton (great swimming pool at Ladram Bay!). Greendale Farm shop also a must!

All in all a wonderful time had by us, I would recommend Daisy to anyone, and in fact I don't have a single negative thing to say as everything was just perfect. Thank you for our stay.

"Daisy" at Southleigh Holiday Village

  • 4 of 5

Lovely holiday. Well equipped and clean bungalow. On back of site with view down the valley to the sea from the patio. This would have been used much more if the weather had permitted it. The quiet position suited us. Close to the Donkey Sanctuary (around 600 of them) 5 minute walk away. This has a nice cafe if you do not fancy cooking.

Very comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This large bungalow had everything we needed for a great holiday base . Comfy seating nice fitted kitchen and two good sized bedrooms. Set in a small holiday village a 5 minute drive from sidmouth the site was very quiet this suited our needs perfectly. Other Devon resorts were near enough but you will need a car . With no wifi and sometimes no 3G or phone signal thought was needed when planning daily activities.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Vicky for your super review, we are glad you both had a great time. Due to the rural location of the bungalow, the wifi and phone signal can be intermittent; however we have been looking into options to improve it and will continue to do so. On the plus side it makes it easier to unwind whilst on holiday!

Stoneleigh Holiday Village is between Sidmouth and Beer, close to the Jurassic Coast. It is next door to the well know Donkey Sanctuary which is open all year round.

We particularly enjoy going to Lyme Regis, just a little further on from Beer, where there is a lovely long walk you can do along The Cobb, by the sea, with many pubs and cafes too. Lyme Regis is a quaint coastal town in South West Dorset and is twinned with Bermuda!.
