Residents Summer Outing to Sidmouth – 14th June 2019

We returned to Sidmouth for our annual Summer trip on Friday 14th June. We were really lucky with the weather as it stayed dry for us and the sun even made a little appearance.

The Residents had a lovely time at the Hotel which is in an excellent location with stunning views of the sea.

The staff were really welcoming and friendly and all who attended felt well looked after.

The lunch served was really lovely, especially the amazing desserts!
