Sidmouth has preserved the natural beauty of its countryside, with its wide open spaces, grassy slopes, and tree-covered hills.
Even within the town, you will see magnificent trees, flowers and lawns everywhere.
There are many secluded walks and retreats in the public gardens and pleasure grounds.
The most attractive, of course, is Connaught Gardens, overlooking Chit Rocks and Jacob’s Ladder; here you can stroll by beautiful beds of colourful flowers encircled by shrubs and trees of all kinds. If you wish, you can sit and relax in the quiet serenity of these beautiful gardens.
