Places to Stay in Sidmouth

With the incredible surrounding countryside and the historic coastline, Sidmouth is the place to go if you don’t want to choose between a rural retreat and a seaside resort. East Devon is one of the most fascinating places in the South West, with the Jurassic Coast UNESCO World Heritage Site right on the doorstep, the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, tonnes of interesting, family friendly attractions and easy access to the South West Coast Path. Basing yourself in Sidmouth puts you right in the heart of East Devon and allows you to easily explore a whole host of stunning scenery and some of the region’s top attractions.  

Whatever you’re looking for when it comes to places to stay and accommodation for your holiday, business trip or overnight stay, you’ll find it here.  


Spoiled for choice  

It doesn’t matter whether you want a cute boutique hotel, something grand and luxurious, a laid back B&B, a home from home, a traditional camping holiday or something more unusual, like a house boat, glamping site or shepherd’s hut, there is a host of options for you giving you excellent value for money and second to none service.  

Sidmouth has some of the best, grandest hotels in the south west, something you would expect from a town with royal connections and so much Regency style architecture. Many of the seafront hotels combine the very best in comfort and modernity with historical charm and unparalleled sea views. You can even stay in the same accommodation as a young Queen Victoria did if you like!  

Want something more subtle? There are hotels to suit you too, small boutique hotels, large country manors giving you the best rural retreat and everything in between. While staying in Sidmouth town centre will put you right in the middle of the action, there are also a number of hotels in the surrounding Sid Valley for something quieter, such as the village of Salcombe Regis where you can step straight into an iconic chocolate box village. You’ll even find hotels that are happy for your dog to holiday with you as well as a range of hotels perfect for families or those wanting an adults only stay.  

Something to suit everyone

Hotels aren’t for everyone, if you want more space or a bit more flexibility, make sure to take a look at the holiday cottages and other self-catering options in the region. Cottages offer a real home from home and with plenty of room for the whole family to do their own thing. Plus, garden areas and driveways allow you to spend your days however you want and gives you a chance to get creative with home grown ingredients.  

Or, why not book a stay at a seafront B&B? You can start your day the right way with a fresh, home cooked breakfast made with the very best Devon ingredients and with your hosts being right on site and local people, you’ve got ready made tour guides right outside your door!  

Many of Sidmouth’s B&Bs and self-catering properties are independently owned which means you can pick up a few last minute deals if you want a spur of the moment break!  

Camping and caravan sites are a popular choice too, especially in the summer. There is something very special about starting your day with a cup of tea as the sun rises and ending it with nothing between you and the night sky than canvas. If camping is a little too rustic, you could always try a modern and comfortable glamping site or if you need something to suit the whole family, book a local holiday park with plenty of onsite facilities to keep the little ones amused in a safe environment while the adults relax.  

So, whatever takes your fancy,  take a look around the various options and find the perfect base for your visit to Sidmouth.
