Arriving at the small coastal town of Sidmouth, on the south Devon coast, we were immediately struck by the towering cliffs of vivid red sandstone. Dover's white cliffs are the more famous, but I found these ones far more intriguing.
At the top of the cliffs, the formal gardens featured impressive floral displays in vivid colours. There's also an attractive clifftop cafe which would certainly have tempted us had we not recently eaten.
All in all, Sidmouth was a beautiful small town. We were passing through only briefly, but I hope we'll have chance to return for a longer visit.
