Sidbury boasts a famous watermill and Kingfisher Gallery; an attractive, high-quality art gallery featuring work by local and international artists. Situated in a quiet corner of Sidbury in a beautiful riverside setting by the watermill visitors can view the on-going restoration of the mill whils’t enjoying Devon cream teas in the tea-room.
Within 3 miles of Sidbury is the coastal town of Sidmouth, a glorious floral town by the sea. The Regency esplanade, well-tended parks and floral displays, pretty beaches and small local shops, all offer an abundance of reasons to visit this beautiful town. Sidmouth lies cradled in the gentle arc of a bay beneath glorious red sandstone cliffs that soar above the town. The cliffs in turn, provide a sheltering suntrap for the beaches that, at low tide, stretch along it’s western edge. Unfolded here is a magical vista of sea, beach and heritage coast, as timeless as the town itself.
The market town of Honiton, renowned for its antique shops is approximately 5 miles, as is the historic village of Ottery St Mary. There is much to do in the surrounding area with beautiful scenic walks, golf courses, tennis courts and indoor swimming pools in Sidmouth and Honiton.
