Five nights Monday 31 July – Saturday 5 August 2017
As well as being a particularly attractive seaside town on the East Devon coast, Sidmouth is ideally situated in the centre of a walker’s paradise with wonderful scenic countryside both on the coast and inland. As well as the 95 mile Jurassic Coast shoreline there are numerous trails along the Exe and Axe Estuaries, there is the East Devon Way and many other circular walks.
We will stay at the Ramblers Holidays Sidholme Hotel, an elegant Georgian mansion set within beautiful grounds and just a short stroll from the seafront. The hotel has an indoor heated swimming pool. We have provisionally reserved 15 twin/double rooms and 7 single rooms. This provides accommodation for 37.
The cost for 5 night’s half board accommodation is £360 per person. There is a group discount of 5% for 16 or more, so with sufficient numbers this could bring the price down to £342 per person.
Following the success of the Buxton self-led holiday, and with the help of our own excellent North Herts Ramblers leaders, Sally and Dennis are now going to organise and co-ordinate the walking programme for this holiday. There will be the choice of a long walk or a short walk each day.

From here we can walk the spectacular coastal paths above the Cinque Terre or ‘ive Lands’ Sestri itself is a small, relaxed resort spread over two bays. The smart old town, situated on the isthmus, separates the evocatively named Bay of Silence from the Bay of Fables, where our hotel is situated.

Breakfasts and dinners are included in the holiday price and will be taken in the hotel.
Lunches are not included. Sestri offers possibilities to purchase picnic supplies. Return flights and all local transport costs in connection with the walks are included.
