Nearest pub

The Kingfisher is a traditional Devon pub situated in the heart of Colyton. There's outside seating for warmer months and a real fire to keep you warm in winter. Children are welcome and the pub is open for lunch and dinner.

Nearest beach

With stunning views across Lyme Bay, this shingle beach stretches for about a mile. Take your swimmers, this is a good swimming beach and ideal for kayaking. If you'd rather not walk on the pebbles there's a flat esplanade which is much easier going.

The walk from Seaton to Beer is well worth the effort. Either using the coastal path or footpath from the end of Seaton beach to Beer makes a good walk to be rewarded by the prettiest of bays.

Nearest walk

Start from the Colcombe Castle Pub in the centre of Colyton and follow this five mile walk around the valleys and rolling hills. Check the website for further details and other local walks.

Nearest town

Although easy to access, this little town is unspoilt and displays historic charm alongside riverside walks with dog friendly pubs and a tram station, all within three miles of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Gateway at Seaton. Have a day out to the National Trust's Shute Barton, nearby, or head out to the Blackdown Hills. You're also near enough to Beer, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and the Cathedral City of Exeter.

A lovely walk.

This is a lovely place to visit whether you choose to pay and walk around the grounds, as we have done, or just have something to eat and browse the garden centre. The food is excellent and walks peaceful. We have never been without coming away with some plants for our garden.

A gardeners paradise

A 10 acre garden which has been lovingly created by the family of an ex-dairy farmer. The garden has lots of interest, including the Millenium garden styled around a beautiful trickling stream and a large woodland garden including some of the biggest giant rhubarb we've ever seen. There is a great little tea room serving hard earned tea and cake after you've explored the gardens. There is a nursery selling plants reared at the gardens and other garden essentials. Everything we've bought from them has thrived, so they clearly take great care in what they produce. There is a large landscaping business run by their son attached to the gardens, with further stocks of shrubs and trees to explore.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A typical English village pub with black beams and brass ornaments on the wall. It serves locally brewed ales and reasonably priced food, including a good ol' roast on a Sunday. The front courtyard features a boules piste and Axe Valley views, and the beer garden out back is enclosed to keep the dogs and children contained.

Classic old-fashioned seaside charm. Little wooden changing huts line up on the beach in front of the striking white chalk cliffs. The town has been a fishing port since the 15th Century and many of the buildings are listed.

Absolutely lovely small seaside town. Nice shops and facilities. Beach side cafe excellent and no one minded my elderly mother sitting there all day. Limited availability of deckchairs and no sun umbrellas at all. Good fishing trip for mackerel. Parking some distance from the town.

Devon Seaside village

Pretty beach, fresh fish - catch your own mackerel boats if you like - and Pecorama - delightful gardens, model railway and regular childrens activites/events. Super cliff walk to Branscombe.

The beach is a lovely combination of children's paradise whilst retaining an element of a working seaside town with atmospheric fishing boats waiting to be taken out. Possibly one of the most enticing reasons for coming to Beer are the fresh fish stalls at the edge of the beach where you can pick up fresh crab, lobster and many other things in the catch of the day - a must for fish lovers! The Dolphin and the Anchor pubs deserve a mention for their food too.

You have to visit here !

The Masons Arms, from the outside it looks stunning, charming thatch, honey stone, you expect so much from this first impression, well we were not disappointed, inside the atmosphere is spot on, and the food, local beers and especially the service from the ever attentive staff was brilliant. Welcomes dogs too, a truly British pub experience.
Glad we are not locals, we'd be in here every day !

Great crab ploughman's!

Get there early at lunch time for a table outside in the summer. The famous crab ploughman's makes a wonderful lunch - washed down with the local Branscombe Bitter. For me the beer of the week!

Chocclate box pub in a chocolate box village

The Mason Arms is a very popular pub in the heart of Branscombe village. It has lots of nooks and crannies and plenty of eating space, although it can get extremely busy in the summer months and at bank holidays - make sure you book ahead for a table. The food is fresh, great quality and very well cooked - a surefire winner!

Seaton Tramway

A great trip for the family, our 4 year old son loved it. If you get there early, it is possible to have unlimited trips for the day for only £1 extra. It takes 25mins each way from Seaton to Colyton. It is probably worthwhile factoring in some time to walk around both Seaton and Colyton.

Seaton Tramway

It was great fun. Do take it from Colyton to Seaton - and back - the parking is free at that end. Allow at least a couple of hours at Seaton - even more if the weather is really good.

Scenic tram rides

Short but sweet - especially when you stop for refeshment at the flower bedecked platform at the Colyton end of the line. A good opportunity to birdwatch. Open air upper deck good fun for the kids - they don't feel the cold!
