Seaton is a small town on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in East Devon; it’s not one that pulls the crowds so if you like a quieter time beside the sea this could be for you. The beach is a mile long pebbly one that never seems to get crowded; people come and go, all doing their own thing, whether it's a spot of mackerel fishing, water sports, walking the dog or just soaking up the rays. Right out the end, past the beach huts, snucked away between the cliffs is The Hideaway - a lovely little spot to sit and soak up the ambience over a home cooked lunch or a hearty slice of cake.
Like we said, Seaton is only a small town so don't expect lots in the way of shops - most are family run and have been for years, which is pretty much how it is round these parts. You'll be fine for eats because there are quite a few cafes and restaurants; probably the most popular are Pissanis and The Shed, though you’ll notice that what a lot of people like to do is get fish and chips and eat them on the shore or out by the Axe estuary.
Families should head for Seaton Jurassic where you can all enjoy a prehistoric adventure, and then for the tram station so that you can climb on board and ride through the wetlands to Colyton –one of those lovely old-fashioned holiday things that leave a lasting impression.
