Sidmouth - a walker's paradise

Sidmouth is ideally situated in the centre of a walker’s paradise, and the Bedford Hotel is the perfect place to start and finish your walking holiday.

As well as the stunning 95-mile long Jurassic coastline, there are numerous Thomas Hardy Trails along with the Exe Estuary, Axe Estuary, East Devon Way and many, many other circular walks for you to enjoy.

In addition to the many walks, the area is rich in nature reserves and we even allow dogs, so you can bring along your four-legged friend. And when you return from a day exploring let us hang up your coats, store your boots while you put your feet up, relax and have a well-earned rest.

Below you’ll find some of our favourite walks in the area with map routes to get you started whilst you stay with us.
