First, a quick welcome from our owners…

Hello – we’re Megan and Dan Cozens. We’ve been the proud owners of this fantastic hotel for three years. All of the renovations are now complete and we’re just adding a few finishing touches. Following all the hard work, we have been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, both in 2016 and 2015, and we consistently rank as one of the top hotels in Sidmouth based on customer reviews. But we’re not resting on our laurels – we continue to work hard to ensure you have the best possible stay with us. 

We would love to welcome you, your family and friends to the hotel and we hope to see you soon.  


One of the best-loved and most historic hotels in Sidmouth, Devon, the Woodlands Hotel is in the centre of Sidmouth, just a six-minute walk to the seafront, seven minutes from the shops of Old Fore Street, and an 11-minute stroll to Connaught Gardens. We offer the perfect place from which to explore this picturesque seaside town and Devon’s spectacular Jurassic Coast. We offer rates for both B&B (bed and breakfast) and dinner inclusive packages. See map and directions here.


Our garden is one of the most serene and leafy spots in Sidmouth. Our garden rooms are beautifully decorated and quite unique amongst Sidmouth hotels. Guests can enjoy an afternoon drink on the sunny terrace, a delicious Devon cream tea or just sit back and soak up the glorious setting. See pictures of our garden here.


We have 18 bedrooms, all doubles or twins, with three single rooms. Each has its own unique character, some with high barrel ceilings, some with views of the beautiful gardens. Let us know what you prefer when you get in touch.


We have a car parking space for every room.

Restaurants and bars

The hotel has a spacious restaurant that can seat 60 people. Our light and airy conservatory and adjoining bar are wonderful places to sip a drink or stop for a snack.

Food and drink

We take food and drink seriously. Whether you are having bed & breakfast or dinner as well, we serve fantastic food prepared from some of Devon’s finest locally sourced produce. Our bars stock a wide range of excellent wines, whiskies and local craft beers.
