We love Sidmouth, it is a charming Victorian seaside town with pebble and sandy beaches with a wide esplanade. Its beach is safe for children with a lovely flat sandy beach at lower tides, and nice clean pebbles, ideal for BBQ's and getting dry and dressed sand-free! Amenities are within easy reach, with public loos a very short walk, and delicious Ice-creams. Cafes and restaurants are close by and parking is available on street or in pay and display car parks.
Our favourite place to eat is 'The Pea Green Boat' - http://ow.ly/tdJF9 - it's a great little mediterranean influenced cafe, lovely food and excellent service., and still includes a fabulous fish'n'chips with an amazing pea & mint puree!
Dog owners, please be aware dogs are not permitted on the main beachs from 1 May to 30 September.
Sidmouth is only a 30 minute drive from Blackdown Barn.
