Sidmouth is a lovely seaside town on the south Devon coast, nestled beneath majestic red cliffs. It is a charming, unspolit sanctuary from the excesses of modern day tourism, famed for its wealth of fine architecture. Our accomodation is once again at the Kingswood & Devoran Hotel, which boasts a superb location and a great reputation for its ambience, service and hospitality.
The 3 star Kingswood & Devoran Hotel is located on Sidmouth's delightful Regency seafront close to the town centre. The beautiful lounges overlook the sea and enjoy stunning views. Each day they serve morning coffee & biscuits, in the afternoon tea and cake. All bedrooms are en suite with TV, telephone, radio, tea making facilities and Wi-Fi. As befits a building of this era the bedrooms have their own individual character varying in style and size. There is a lift to most bedrooms although many still have steps to climb.
We journey via the main roads and motorways to Sidmouth for 4 nights half board accommodation at the Kingswood & Devoran Hotel.
Today we head to Bicton Park Botanical Gardens. Set in the picturesque Otter Valley, these magnificent Grade 1 listed gardens include historic glasshouses, a countryside museum and the Bicton Woodland Railway.
This morning we visit Powderham Castle which lies in a beautiful deer park on the banks of the River Exe. Our included guided tour of the castle will bring over 600 years of history to life plus there are beautiful gardens to discover. Later we continue to Devon's ancient capital Exeter with free time to explore the city, with its cathedral, many museums and excellent shopping area.
A free day to enjoy the delights of this regency resort. A stroll along the promenade is a pleasant experience to enjoy before returning to your hotel for included tea and cakes.
