Far enough off the beaten track not to have lost its heritage and charm, Sidmouth is an enchanting regency resort set amidst the sandstone cliffs of Devon’s Jurassic Coast. The town itself is full of Regency history, independent shops, beautiful gardens, and unspoiled character making Sidmouth truly unique.
Surrounded by the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Sidmouth also forms part of the Jurassic Coast world heritage site.
One of the first Regency houses to be built on the seafront in Sidmouth was Wallis’s Royal Marine Library and Reading Rooms. This was the early nineteenth-century meeting place for Sidmouth’s fashionable summer visitors.
In a commanding position, it’s now the centre-piece of the Bedford Hotel and an historic feature of Sidmouth Esplanade.
The Bedford is now the pride of the Pyne family. Located at the heart of Sidmouth’s seafront means many rooms boast breathtaking panoramic views across Lyme Bay.
As you’d expect, the hotel also has comfortable lounges and offers a wide selection of good food and wine in a choice of attractive surroundings.
Limited car parking is available at the rear of and around the hotel. A large public car park is situated conveniently opposite the hotel.
With rates and terms to suit everyone, the Bedford really is a perfect place to stay.
