Peaceful retirement in Sidmouth

Peaceful retirement in Sidmouth

A peaceful tourist resort in Devon with a relaxing atmosphere for its residents. This would be the best way to describe the town of Sidmouth in Devon, which, while being a popular getaway spot for tourists, is also a popular corner of the country for older people looking for property for sale in Sidmouth to retire to.

The town, which has a population of just over 14,000, is popular amongst older people in the community, with almost half (40 per cent) of the residents in the dwelling aged over-65, a figure which can be attributed to the relaxing atmosphere of living on Devon's Jurassic Coast.

Sidmouth is located on the south west coast of England and Devon, and lies, as the name of the town itself suggests, at the mouth of the river Sid. Almost all of the town sits on a conservation area, mainly because of the Jurassic rock formations which can be found on the cost of the English channel.

The town is popular amongst older residents and those looking for somewhere to retire because of the many activities it provides for people who want to relax. It has also been frequently voted as the Britain in Bloom winner, with some residents having a penchant for gardening and keeping the small town looking lovely.

Sidmouth also plays host to its own folk week, although this has been on a smaller scale over the past few years due a reduction in the funding after sponsors pulled out, and for those who enjoy a spot of live music and brass bands, the Sidmouth Town Band plays concerts in the town's park once a week throughout the summer, a proud tradition which has run since its formation in 1860.

So, whether you are a tourist, or simply someone looking to relax and enjoy the peaceful Devon lifestyle, Sidmouth can offer something for you.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801243600-ADNFCR
