Holidays in Sidmouth

A classic seaside town, Sidmouth is located on the Jurassic Coast, surrounded by beautiful countryside in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These surroundings provide lots to do, including swimming, rock pooling and fossil hunting on the beach, or taking in the stunning views as you walk along the South West Coast Path. On water and on dry land, there are plenty of sports on offer in Sidmouth, including sailing, fishing, gig rowing, golf, cricket, tennis, rugby and football. The Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary and World of Country Life are both great family attractions nestled in the countryside nearby.

Despite the peaceful atmosphere, Sidmouth doesn’t shy away from hosting some great events. A celebration of music and dance, Sidmouth Folk brings local, amateur and professional artists together in a series of indoor and outdoor performances throughout the town, plus fantastic food, drink and crafts for sale. Sidmouth Regatta brings the whole town together with sailing races, live music, fireworks, children’s activities, and competitions. With all this and more, charming Sidmouth is a great location for a holiday.
