Sparkling Sidmouth

Sparkling Sidmouth

Sidmouth is the jewel in Devonshire's crown. Rugged shoreline meets Regency history, and rolling green countryside beckons beyond. Cream teas, botanical gardens, heritage trams and retail therapy, this tour has it all.


Delightful Sidmouth is 'a town caught in a timeless charm',

according to Poet Laureate John Betjeman.



Set between rolling Devonshire countryside and rugged Jurassic red rock coastline,

it promises fine beaches, lovingly-tended gardens, coastal walks,

friendly shops-even one of the few remaining family-owned department stores

in the country with 'service how it used to be'.

It's the perfect spot for unwinding, re-charging and exploring.


The Victoria Hotel****


Enjoy all the delights Sidmouth has to offer whilst relaxing at our wonderful hotel

with a full day at leisure before heading to Dartmouth where we board the 'Christie Belle'



to sail up the majestic river to Greenway Quay where we disembark

to visit the home of Agatha Christie, Greenway House.



A scenic tour of the jurassic coastline rounds off our delightful Devonian adventure,

as we gaze across inspirational coastal views and dramatic cliff-edges.



Please Note: The walk from Greenway Quay to the visitors reception

is steep in places along a winding bark chip path through the Greenway Woodland.

The 800 yard walk takes about 10 mins and there are plenty of benches

for resting/admiring the view on the way.

Greenway offer a car service to shuttle people from the Quay

to the reception but can only take 3 people per round trip.



Mansions for admirals by the pebbly strand

And cottages for maiden aunts, inland,

That go with tea and strawberries and cream,

Sweet sheltered gardens by the twisting stream,

Cobb, thatch and fuschia bells, a Devon dream!


John Betjeman
