“Jane's home in Sidmouth is absolutely lovely, very comfortable with everything you might need for a break away. The views from the outside terrace and the upstairs master bedroom are indeed stunning, with the sea and the red cliffs beyond. The beds were super comfy and the linens crisp and welcoming. Jane was a wonderful host and was very quick to respond. She allowed us an earlier check in which was very handy, and she had lots of information leaflets on the local area. Unfortunately, out trip to Sidmouth was during a rainy and blustery August weekend so we couldn't enjoy everything that we had planned but we were very happy to discover Jane's games cupboard which kept us entertained. The location of the property is great, overlooking the sea, up on a cliff, a simple 5-10 mins walk to the seafront, a little more challenging on the way up (not so great for the very old or young or those with mobility issues) but hey, that's how you get those great views! Sidmouth really is a charming town and I would wholeheartedly recommend both Jane's property and Sidmouth as a place to stay. Thank you so much Jane!”
Where is it?
Sidmouth sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is famous for many things, including its royal connections and for being a major winner in Britain in Bloom, but this seaside town has so much more to offer than owers and fossils.
Life in this town never stops, there is a folk festival, a literary festival, a sea festival, a walking festival and a science festival. If you are sporty then you are spoilt for choice too, so many activities to choose from. August is regatta time and the prestigious Red Arrows help add to the celebrations. There are wonderful gardens to explore in the town and a thriving theatre and museum. Even an observatory. There are Sunday evening concerts and even a Boxing Day swim for the brave.
If you have children or grandchildren, the beach is a must, and the sand is great for building sandcastles, (when the tide is out). Or take them sailing or fishing, or even simply walk along the promenade and enjoy an ice cream.
The town is within easy reach of splendid Exeter, with its main line connections with London Paddington and just half an hour from the regional airport with its domestic and international flights.
