    About

This was the early nineteenth-century meeting place for Sidmouth s fashionable summer visitors. Between 1815 and 1845 the building was enlarged, and by 1865 it had become the Bedford Hotel. It s now a Grade II listed building and the pride of the Pyne family. Located at the heart of Sidmouth s seafront means many rooms boast breathtaking panoramic views across Lyme Bay.
