1. About the Knowle
The historic East Devon District Council Offices are set in 16 acres of beautiful parkland at Knowle Sidmouth overlooking Lyme Bay. The grounds overlooking the sea make an ideal photographic background. The lawns, shrubs and trees are maintained throughout the season by the Council’s award winning gardeners. Built originally as a gentleman’s residence and later enlarged as a hotel, the Council buildings have dominating views southwards.
