Holiday parks and caravan sites in Sidmouth

If you’re looking for a traditional British holiday by the sea, what could be better than going for the full nostalgia of booking a caravan for your stay. Sometimes there really is nothing better than getting back to basics with a camping or caravanning holiday, they are truly the fundamentals of a British summer holiday, so whether you like the idea of roughing it with nothing but canvas between you and the night sky or you want to feel a little less exposed by staying in a static caravan you’ll find plenty of options to suit you. You could opt for one of the region’s holiday parks, where you get a choice of accommodation and a host of onsite facilities to keep the whole family entertained from children’s clubs, swimming pools, games’ rooms and adult entertainment of an evening.  


Caravanning and camping 

Being such a popular place for families and being surrounded with plenty of countryside and some incredible coastal views, you’ll find lots of camping and caravanning sites in and around Sidmouth to choose from. There are sites run by individuals, sites run by clubs and organisations and just about everything in between. If you want to make sure you get out and about, you could choose a site where you can easily access the Natural Landscape (AONB) or the South West Coast Path or if you want to be close to the action, one that is near the town centre allowing you the chance to pop to one of the pubsrestaurants or cafes and back again easily enough.  

Many of the camping and caravan parks in and around Sidmouth are dog friendly too, especially if you are bringing your own caravan. Those with static caravans will have a few restrictions in place, but for the majority of people choosing a camping or caravanning holiday with their dog is easy!
