Sidmouth awarded 'excellent' beach rating for water quality

Good news for our guests who love a dip in the sea, Sidmouth beaches have been awarded an 'excellent' rating for water quality - in 2018 and for the last 3 years in a row. 

Sidmouth Beach (which is the beach right to the front of our hotel) and Jacob's Ladder Beach have both individually been given the 'excellent' status, the highest classification from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

Meanwhile, the nearby Seaton, Beer, Budleigh Salterton, Sandy Bay and Exmouth waters have also received ‘excellent’ - a wonderful result for the region! 

Water quality is tested by the Environment Agency every week from the start of May to the end of September. Results are considered alongside those from the previous three years to build a rating. 

See the Sidmouth Bathing Water Profile and Jacob's Ladder Bathing Water Profile for details of each assessment.
