Tucked away in a corner of East Devon is the beautiful, unspoilt Axe Valley. At the mouth of the River Axe is the friendly, coastal resort of Seaton, with its 1-mile long beach, which is excellent for watersports including sailing, swimming, diving and windsurfing. Seaton's unique tramway runs inland, along the Axe Estuary to the medieval market town of Colyton, and is perfect for birdwatchers, transport enthusiasts and those who simply want to watch the beautiful riverside scenery glide by. Next to the tramway is the Seaton Marshes Nature Reserve. The installation of a viewing hide and wheelchair friendly paths means this beautiful area and its wildlife, such as wildfowl and wading birds in winter, and dragonflies and butterflies in summer, are easily accessible all year round. A bit further is the Jurassic Coast, where you can take in Sidmouth, Beer, Branscombe and Lyme Regis. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
