Sidmouth has been named as one of the best places to live in the countryside.
The town joins St Mary’s and Sherborne in experts from The Times’ 30 best places to live in the countryside.
Sherborne, in West Dorset, was 14th in the list with Sidmouth 21st. St Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly, was 27th.
Sidmouth is special because of its ‘Regency architecture, stunning Jurassic Coast views’ and ‘sailing and arts clubs mean there’s lots to do despite the rural feel’.
The Times adds: “Sidmouth and the surrounding villages are classic retirement territory, but it’s a lot livelier than it once was.”
