About Us

The Sidmouth Herald has been recording the town’s news for more than 150 years, priding itself on accurate and reliable coverage of all issues – big and small. 

It has a great reputation for campaigning and raising funds for worthy causes, such as the inshore rescue service. 

Published each Friday, the Sidmouth Herald covers this beautiful Regency seaside town as well as surrounding places such as Beer, Branscombe, Newton Poppleford and Otterton. 

The newspaper also has an edition for Ottery St Mary, ensuring this important East Devon town has strong, truly local coverage. 

Sport plays a major role in the newspaper’s success, with unrivalled coverage of football, rugby and cricket, as well as fishing and bowls – to name a few. 

In addition to the printed product, the entire Sidmouth Herald is available online through our e-edition service alongside a breaking news service on our website.
