If you’re looking for a town that can includes interesting attractions, stunning landscapes, great places to eat and shop, then you need to set aside some time to visit Seaton.
For those of you wanting the full 24-hour Seaton experience, you’ll need somewhere to stay. For those of you with kids and a penchant for caravans, the Axe Vale Caravan Park is a relaxing rural retreat, just a short walk from the beach, town and a nature reserve. It has plenty of child-friendly areas and WiFi so you can Instagram all those photos of Seaton and tag us! (Don’t forget to follow Visit Devon and use the #visitdevon!)
If you want a bit more space, Jean Bartlett Cottage Holidays have a number of suitable holiday homes from apartments, modern houses, cottages and larger properties. They’re a little way out of the town, so you get the full view when you come into the centre.
If you’re bringing a four-legged friend with you, take a look at the Westleigh Bed and Breakfast where there is no charge for your dog and no restriction on access to any room, apart from the kitchen of course! Based in Beer, this beautiful 120-year-old cottage is two minutes away from the beach and will let you explore the neighbouring towns of Westleigh, Beer and Seaton.
Once you’re in the town, there is plenty to keep you amused, make sure you visit Seaton Beach. The beach stretches over a mile long with pebbles and is an ideal spot for water sports and swimming. It’s even in an area of outstanding natural beauty, so the perfect spot for photography. Seaton is on the Jurassic coast, at Seaton Jurassic you can become an explorer, captain a time machine and find out more about the history of this coast line. While in Seaton, make sure you check out the Tramway, if you’ve never ridden a tram before, this is your chance! There are even open top double deckers for a panoramic view of the estuary and enclosed saloons for wet weather.
You’ll have access to a wonderful mix of shops and eateries in the town centre and after you’ve had your fill, you can work it off by heading along the South West Coast Path trail and explore the surrounding areas.
