Tucked away in East Devon, Sidmouth is situated at the gateway to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, a magnet for fossil collectors looking for prehistoric remains. It is a town with a timeless charm, with beautiful gardens, regency history and architecture along with some dramatic clifftop walks, which give a panoramic view of the English Channel below. If you're after something a little quirkier then why not head off to Bearhouse Alpacas? Here you can learn about the inquisitive alpacas and their fantastic fleeces (they are a long way from their native South America!). Visit in the summer to see the impossibly cute cria (baby alpacas). The real draw is the chance to go Alpaca trekking around the steep tracks surrounding the farm. Visitors are invited to take the alpacas on a walk with a lead through gorgeous green countryside – just like a rather unusual dog walk!
