The sandstone cliffs change colour with the path of the sun, from brilliant red to burnt umber, contrasting with the lush green sheep-dotted pastures inland and the blue haze of the sea. This is fine rambling country.

Sidmouth is ideally sited for wonderful scenic walking both coastal and inland. As well as the 95 mile long Jurassic Coast shoreline there are numerous trails along the Exe and Axe Estuaries, the East Devon Way and many other circular walks. Sidmouth is on the South West Coast Path at the mouth of the Sid Valley between the red rock cliffs of Peak and Salcombe Hills rising 500ft above the village. Visitors have been coming here since the late 18th century, building cottages which became Georgian mansions and enjoying the views from the beachfront Regency esplanade across Lyme Bay to the isle of Portland in the east and Berry Head promontory and Brixham to the west.

Walks lead off in all directions; the magnificent cliff top coastal trails; and there are extensive moorland and lowland heath country rich in wildlife to explore and centuries of local history to encounter.

We are based in an ideal location to explore both the Devon coast and also the inland area of down and heathland. The Otter River adds contrast to the coastal walking.

Local highlights include the Donkey Sanctuary, a short walk to the east of Sidmouth, along the coastal path. We also visit Otterton on the banks of the River Otter, oddly the home for Britain’s only population of wild beaver.

Sidholme Hotel

We stay at the Sidholme Hotel, an elegant Georgian mansion set within 9 acres of beautiful grounds and just a short stroll from the seafront and Jurassic Coast. The mansion was originally built for the 6th Earl of Buckinghamshire and was known as Richmond Lodge; it’s now been welcoming guests for 80 years. It is particularly noted for its magnificent Music Room with chandeliers and Gothic style organ. The hotel has a good size indoor heated swimming pool, fair trade coffee shop, bar and (there is no bar in the hotel) lounge and restaurant. A buffet style breakfast is served everyday.
