Sitting along an impressive coastline and surrounded by spectacular countryside and 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.
Sidmouth lies on the Jurassic Coast and the coastline is dominated by the vivid red sandstone cliff which date back to the Triassic period. Along the front is the Millennium Walkway which stretches the length of the beach, which is made of pebbles, providing the perfect background for an afternoon stroll. Sidmouth Beach is a perfect family friendly beach, ideal for safe swimming and rock pooling at low tide with great on site facilities.
A top family day out is a visit to the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary with over 500 rescue donkeys to pet and feed!
Sports fans are also well catered for in Sidmouth. There are a range of facilities offering a host of different sports all year around. So, whether you are interested in thrill seeking by heading out into the water on a kayak, paddle board or canoe or you want to try your hand at rock climbing there are organisations offering equipment hire and tuition as well as guided sessions and chances to head out on your own.
Time your getaway perfectly and join in with Sidmouth's very own annual Literary Festival or very popular, Folk Week!
