The more energetic can always climb the 500 feet high Peak Hill to enjoy the magnificent panorama Sidmouth and the coast far below. In the other direction is the equally commanding Salcombe Hill whilst inland are green hills of the pretty Sid Valley. Alternatively there is always a gentler stroll around town, through the park and gardens and along the seafront. This is linked by a walkway to the western beach at Jacob’s Ladder and through Connaught gardens The Sid valley surrounding the town typifies breathtaking rural Devon scenery, and at its heart is an area of parkland known as The Byes. This beautiful National trust parkland follows the River Sid as it gently meanders to the sea, ideal for young and old with grassy areas for ball games, cycling or just quiet reflection.
Once a relatively small fishing village, Sidmouth became a fashionable resort for the gentry in the early 19th century. The town’s numerous fine Georgian and Regency villas and mansions are now mostly hotels, but have lost none of their charm in the conversion, until the fashion for coastal resorts grew in the Georgian and Victorian periods of the 18th and 19th centuries. It is easy to see why John Betjeman described Sidmouth as ‘A town caught still in a timeless charm’, ‘ Thus Sidmouth looked and hundred years ago, still much the same, it lies these hills below’
The Kingswood & Devoran Hotel was formerly the Sidmouth brine baths, and previously one the seafront lodging houses, a Georgian storey bow window house. It was demolished in 1893 and replaced by hot and cold Brine baths, and later turned into the Kingswood Hotel -so we are long associated with restoring vigor to weary bodies.
