There are fewer things more romantic than taking a stroll along the seafront, seeing the sun rise and set with the backdrop of majestic cliffs and enjoying fish and chips. If that sounds like the ideal Valentine’s Day for you and your partner, book yourself a romantic break in Sidmouth!

Here are a few ideas of romantic activities that won’t break the bank while you’re in town!

  • Explore the Byes
    The Byes and the wider Sid Valley are beautiful whatever time of year you choose to visit, but around Valentine’s you can start to see the beginnings of spring and just generally have a nice stroll together.
  • Grab a cream tea
    Having a cream tea is a real Devon experience, so why not make it special and book one with champagne or wine alongside the scones and tea! There are plenty of hotels, restaurants, cafés and tea rooms in and around town offering their own versions – some of them even offer gluten free and vegan options, so everyone can enjoy!
  • Indulge in a spa treatment
    One way to show your appreciation for your loved one is to treat them to a couple of hours in a spa – whether that’s treatments or just some time in the sauna. Where better to relax and restore than at the Jurassic Coast?
  • Explore the Jurassic Coast
    Speaking of, Sidmouth sits along the UNESCO World Heritage site and there are plenty of walks and trails letting you explore the cliffs and views from land or hop on a boat and enjoy a themed trip around the coast, where you can see the cliffs from sea.
  • Visit the arboretum
    Sidmouth is home to the only civic arboretum in the UK – it’s unique in the sense that the entire valley around the town is an arboretum so there are plenty of places to enjoy each other’s company in nature!
