The late Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman described Sidmouth as a town ‘caught still in a timeless charm’. The colourful esplanade, Regency terraces and beautifully manicured parks and gardens give this town its distinguished character while its vibrant community offers all kinds of leisure activities, entertainment, shops and restaurants.
From its commanding position on the residential edge of Sidmouth, Salcombe Gardens – named after the view of Salcombe Hill to the east of the town – offers a spacious, bespoke development of seven houses and four bungalows, all of which have been designed exclusively for people over 55. The location, layout and specification make Salcombe Gardens the perfect place to enjoy a happy and stress-free retirement.
In Spring 2014 Sidmouth was named by The Times as one of the 30 best places to live in the countryside because of its Regency architecture and stunning Jurassic Coast views. The seaside town has a population of around 15,000 and offers a wide range of activities from sailing to arts clubs. Much of the area is set within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the South West Coast Path stretches towards Lyme Bay to the east and Exmouth to the west. As well as its bustling promenade, beaches, shops, restaurants and tea rooms, Sidmouth offers a busy programme of events and activities; from lazy concerts in Connaught Gardens on summer evenings to a bracing Boxing Day swim. The town is served by its own community hospital, although the main Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital is only 17 miles away in the Cathedral City of Exeter, which also offers a mainline rail link to London Paddington. Honiton, with a rail link to London Waterloo, is just 10 miles away and Exeter Airport, which offers international and national flights, also 10 miles away. Sidmouth's small but vibrant town centre provides an excellent range of independent shops, a selection of national retail chains and its own department store 'Fields'. It also has its own market which sells locally caught fish and seafood as well as locally produced fruit and vegetables. Waitrose has a Sidmouth branch, within a short walk of Salcombe Gardens, which prides itself on selling local produce. The amenities of Sidford are also close by and include a Post Office/Store and a hairdresser. The Manor Pavilion is a community theatre located near the seafront in Sidmouth and hosts a range of excellent productions throughout the year. The town also has its own Art Deco style cinema. Regular evening concerts are performed by Sidmouth Brass Band on warm summer evenings in Connaught Gardens - which were named after Queen Victoria's third son, the Duke of Connaught who was a regular visitor in the 1930's. The annual Sidmouth Folk Week and Regatta is held in August and September is Carnival time. Sidmouth Golf Club enjoys wonderful sea views from its sheltered and undulating fairways. The clubhouse provides a panoramic view of the Devon and Dorset coastline along Lyme Bay and beyond. There is also a cricket and croquet club, a bowls club and tennis courts along with an indoor swimming pool, horse riding and, of course, breathtaking walks along the South West Coast Path. For the less sporty there is an annual duck race on the River Sid!
