'An elegant Regency town, flanked by glorious coastal cliff scenery. ... civilised Sidmouth'
(Holiday Which Magazine 2006)

Bathed in History this Quintessentially English Regency town has a unique charm with it's quaint shops and narrow streets. Sidmouth has a warm and safe ambiance as you walk through the beautiful Blackmore gardens with it's magnificent floral peacock. As you pass by a plethora of fine Victorian, Edwardian and Regency architecture you will be guided through the ages still recognisable from a hundred years ago. Make your way to the Connaught gardens which in turn provides a kaleidoscope backdrop from which to view the breath taking scenery from Peak Hill to Salcombe Hill that in turn cradle the delightful pebble/sand beaches and the explorative chit rocks that have delighted generations of children and adults.
