Find cottages in SeatonVisit Seaton

Seaton is a long established seaside resort at the mouth of the River Axe in East Devon. The town faces Lyme Bay and is situated on the Jurassic Coast, a 96 mile stretch of coastline designated a World Heritage Site because of the rocks that record 185 million years of geology.

Apart from fossil hunting, visitors to Seaton will enjoy all kinds of water sports, including windsurfing, swimming and sailing along the mile long pebble and grey sand beach. Walkers can explore towards Beer in the west or Lyme Regis to the east, following the South West Coastal Path, which runs along the seafront.

All the shops you need for a self-catering holiday can be found in the town and the Axe Valley Heritage Museum in the town hall has many displays, including a collection of old local photographs, Victorian costumes and natural history display.

Inland from Seaton, a tramway runs along the old railway line up the Axe Estuary as far as Colyton. A ride on the electric tram is a must for transport enthusiasts and birdwatchers, as well as anyone who just wants to enjoy the lovely riverside scenery. The Seaton Marshes Nature Reserve is beside the tramway and has paths suitable for wheelchair users so that everyone can enjoy the wildlife at any time of year. There is also a playground for children and a skateboard park.

Close to the sea front are the Jubilee Gardens, where there is plenty of entertainment for all the family with a putting green, bowling green, large children's playground, tennis courts and the Jubilee Clock Tower. The nearby Cactus House is also worth visiting.

Seaton has something for everyone, so search for holiday cottages in Seaton.

Woodmans Stoup Ref: KAAU


Woodmans Stoup is situated in the conservation village of Colyford located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This detached Grade II Listed period farmhouse dates from the 17th century, but has origins that possibly date back earlier than this. The property is a traditionally built thatched cottage and has a number of leaded light windows, some of which are shuttered. The property itself has an immense amount of period character with many original features still insitu such as inglenook fireplaces, flagstone floors, exposed beams, timbers and window seats, all of which combine to create a delightful period ambience and an impressive holiday cottage. The property has been decorated and furnished to a high standard, and is ideal for families or groups to get together. Colyford sits on the A3052 midway between Lyme Regis and Sidmouth, and one mile from the beach which is located on the World Heritage Coastline known as the Jurassic Coast. The property has gardens and grounds of about ¾ acre which surround the house and lie principally to the south. Worthy of special note is the delightful cobbled courtyard which is created by the house and barns which enclose it on three sides, ideal for al fresco dining. Within the grounds is the linhay barn, an attractive traditionally built building on two storeys which is built principally of stone under a re-thatched roof, making this a great games room. Also within the grounds is a detached cider barn complete with a very rare horse engine and original cider press. Colyford has a popular post office, general store and butcher which proves a great asset to the village. There are two public houses and a restaurant. The coastal resort of Seaton lies approximately 1 mile to the south and has a wide pebble beach, a small harbour at the mouth of the River Axe and direct access to the World Heritage Coast and South West Peninsular Coastal Path. The market town of Axminster lies about 5½ miles. To the east is the coastal resort of Lyme Regis and to the west are the fishing villages of Beer and Branscombe and the Regency Gothic town of Sidmouth. The county town of Exeter, 23 miles west, provides a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, theatres, and restaurants. Well worth a visit is Seaton Tramway; next to the tramway is the new Seaton Marshes Nature Reserve. The installation of a viewing hide and wheelchair-friendly paths means this beautiful area and its wildlife - wildfowl and wading birds in winter; dragonflies and butterflies in summer - are now easily accessible all year round. There is also a fantastic cycle way as well. There are many NT properties all close by. Golf, sailing, horse riding and many other activities are all available locally. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
