The Coast

We are just 20 miles from some of the most stunning coastline in Britain with glorious beaches, fishing, wild swimming and coastal walks awaiting you.

Be sure to go for a dip in the sea followed by something to warm your cockles - perhaps some tea and toast if you stumble upon the wonderful Town Mill Bakery in Lyme Regis.

Or why not take home some fresh fish from Beer or perhaps sample a fine Devon ale in one of it's many pubs.

Whatever you do don't forget to get a beach hut in Budleigh Salterton where you can while away the hours in the beautiful Devon sunshine.
