In describing Sidmouth, Muddy Stilettos wrote: "Where so many seaside towns have faded, Sidmouth on the South East Devon coast has retained its Regency lustre with an unspoilt beachfront and busy labyrinth of indie galleries, boutiques and cafes at its centre.

"But it’s the very desirable range of period property, from thatched and Gothic to detached Victorian and Georgian family homes which has scooped it a spot in Muddy’s Best Places to Live 2023.

"Sure, it’s long been a Mecca for tourists and the well-heeled retired, but it’s far from sleepy, especially in August when the annual Folk Festival comes to town."
