Sidmouth Town Centre (photo: Sidmouth Town Council)The pleasant seaside resort of Sidmouth is about a seven mile drive west of “Baldash Cottage”.  It is a busy, but not noisy - perhaps slightly old-fashioned - town with an extensive shopping centre.  You can find a wide choice of refreshments, from coffee shops, through fish-and-chip bars to restaurants and hotels.  There is a small cinema, the "Radway", in the town.

The sea front is traditional, with a long promenade running the full length of the bay, just right for enjoying a stroll with an ice cream in summer, or watching the waves breaking on the beach in winter.

If you around at the end of July, don't miss the “Sidmouth FolkWeek Festival” with its multiplicity of musical and artistic events for young and old.
