Sidmouth is a city in Devon. Other than the international Folk Festival mentioned below, Sidmouth is a very pleasant but small and unremarkable seaside resort / dormitory town.
Sidmouth is well-connected by Stagecoach bus services to/from Exeter (service number 52A or 52B) and Exmouth (service 157).
Haymens Butchers offers a good range of (mostly) meat-based take-away options. Good old-fashioned shop, great value (they do some great cakes for 50p!) and deserved 'Taste of the West' award winners. Highly recommended.
