Sidmouth Devon Holiday Brochure

John Betjeman saw Sidmouth as a feast of visual delight. You will be captivated in this way too, because the charm of Sidmouth is timeless, carefully nurtured and preserved to remain a constant pleasure. To Betjeman it was beauty. To you it may be a floral extravaganza, a peaceful opportunity to unwind, an ideally situated base from which to explore Devon and south west England, an adventure ground of limitless outdoor enjoyment.

Fine buildings, gentle walks, stunning views – with so much to nurture, conservation is Sidmouth's watchword.

Sidmouth's time warp ambience is the perfect prescription to relax and browse, be it a seafront deckchair for a quiet read or a bracing walk on Peak Hill to wonder at the magnificent panorama of sea and coast with Sidmouth spread below. For the less energetic there is many a gentler stroll around town, park and garden and along the seafront linked by a walkway to the western beach at Jacob's Ladder.

The ford takes traffic across the River Sid and this you will find on the popular guided walks from the Heritage Centre that feature the historic landmarks of the town.

As for the greenery of Sidmouth's famous park, The Byes, it is a delightful riverside walk and yet another sanctuary for peace and quiet.
