Visit Sidmouth


Sidmouth - A place that is easy to find but hard to leave


Hidden in plain view along the beautiful Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sidmouth is a seaside town like no other. 

Sitting along an impressive coastline and surrounded by spectacular countryside and  Blue Flag award winning beaches, Sidmouth allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds, with everything you can expect from a beach holiday as well as having a rural feel and a real community atmosphere. 

A Town Caught Still In A Timeless Charm

Poet Laureate, John Betjeman, chose those words to describe Sidmouth after being captivated by its beautiful gardens, leisurely walks, clean beaches and Regency history. This lovely seaside town is nestled beneath majestic red cliffs, which, along with the green hills of the Sid Valley, will captivate you too.  

Sidmouth really is a town like no other, located in East Devon and full of friendly faces and beautiful scenery, it is no wonder that Sidmouth is a firm favourite among families and tourists looking for a seaside resort.

The dramatic cliffs, fresh sea air and the abundance of attractions makes it a wonderful place to recharge the batteries. It’s the kind of town where you can do everything or nothing at all, you can make a splash by taking on some watersports, savour a cream tea or two at one of the town’s many hotels and cafes, 
spend some time exploring the South West Coast Path or discover a new passion at one Sidmouth’s regular festivals.

Where To Stay - Spoiled For Choice There Is Something To Suit Everyone

Whatever you’re looking for when it comes to accommodation for your holiday or overnight stay, you’ll find it here.   

It doesn’t matter whether you want a cute boutique hotel, something grand and luxurious, a laid back B&B, a home from home, a traditional camping holiday or something more unusual, like a house boat, glamping site or shepherd’s hut, there is a host of options for you giving you excellent value for money and second to none service.  

Sidmouth has some of the best, grandest hotels in the south west, something you would expect from a town with royal connections and so much Regency style architecture. Many of the seafront hotels combine the very best in comfort and modernity with historical charm and unparalleled sea views. 

You can even stay in the same accommodation as a young Queen Victoria did if you like!  

While staying in Sidmouth town centre will put you right in the middle of the action, there are also a number of hotels in the surrounding Sid Valley for something quieter, such as the village of Salcombe Regis where you can step straight into an iconic chocolate box village.

You’ll even find hotels that are happy for your dog to holiday with you as well as a range of hotels perfect for families or those wanting an adults only stay.
