Once the rush of Christmas is over, make sure to take some time to relax and refresh before heading into 2024. One of the best places to rejuvenate is in East Devon, where you can enjoy a slower, more leisurely pace of life. Why not head into the New Year, by relaxing in Sidmouth with these activities?

A gentle stroll

Sidmouth is full of lovely walking routes, with the Civic Arboretum, The Byes, Mutters Moor and others offering the chance to blow away those cobwebs. If you don’t want to get your shoes muddy, you don’t have to, you can enjoy walks around the town too with the Blue Plaque Trail and others.

Get crafty

East Devon is well known for its arts and crafts, so why not relax into the New Year with some crafts? There are several places offering workshops and activities across Sidmouth, including pottery painting and other crafts with the Coastal Craft Collectives and Sidmouth Craft Hub.

Enjoy some golf

Play a couple of holes with the Jurassic Coast as your backdrop – its beautiful even in the winter and perfect for relaxing!
