A delightful part of Sidmouth which my wife and I enjoyed on consecutive days. An important feature is the number of benches where one can stop and rest and enjoy the views.

A pretty little park to walk through towards the seaside. A haven for dog walkers especially as everyone in Sidmouth seems to own a dog. The river, waterfall and Tollhouse are charming.
