Blackmore Gardens, in the heart of the town of Sidmouth, are mostly enclosed and relatively sheltered. They make an interesting contrast with Connaught Gardens, just to the west of the town, which are quite elevated, exposed and windswept. There are however a wide range of conditions within the garden, from sunny lawns with specimen trees and warm south facing borders, to areas of deep shade with challenging growing conditions. All areas of the garden are easily accessible by paved footpaths, seating is generously provided, and there is a conservatory for shelter and the growing of more tender plants. Much of the seating has been provided over the years by individuals as memorial benches, in remembrance of family members and friends who enjoyed the peaceful ambience of the gardens.
