Sidmouth is a coastal town in South Devon. Situated on the Jurassic Coast, it is dominated by vast red sandstone cliffs which date back to the Triassic period. With plenty to see and do, a holiday cottage in Sidmouth is perfect for people of all ages.

Why book a cottage in Sidmouth?

For anyone who enjoys walking, Sidmouth is an ideal base for a holiday. The South West Coast Path runs all along the coastline and you can choose to follow the trail west, towards Exmouth, or head east towards Lyme Regis. The East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stretches for 100 miles along the coast and inland, offering a range of different terrains to explore.

Sidmouth Beach is a long expanse of sand that feels very sheltered due to the surrounding cliffs. Go swimming in the gentle waters or explore the rock pools that are dotted around. On the cliffs above the beach is Connaught Gardens, a part walled garden and public park. They are named after the Duke of Connaught and date back to around 1820.

The town itself has plenty to offer with a large number of shops to look around and a number of high quality cafès and restaurants to eat and drink in.

Places to visit near Sidmouth

The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth is a great day out for the whole family. The organisation supports donkeys all over the world and visitors can come and meet a number of friendly donkeys who have been rescued and rehabilitated. 

Travel east along the coast to the villages to Beer and Seaton. Both have great beaches where you can spend the day sunbathing and swimming in the cool waters.
