The busy seaside town of Seaton, like Sidmouth, has an extensive shopping centre, offering a wide range of eating places and shops.  It is, perhaps, less traditional in style, with quite a number of modern buildings.

The shingle beach and sea front promenade face Lyme Bay.  The promenade is more than a mile in length, stretching from Castle Hill in the west across to the estuary of the River Axe at the eastern end.

Seaton is the southern terminus of the "Seaton Tramway".  Other places to visit are the Seaton Marshes nature reserve, Axmouth Harbour and the villages of Colyford and Colyton (both accessible by tram).

By car, Seaton is about four miles from “Baldash Cottage”.  There is a pleasant walk along the cliff-top footpath between Beer and Seaton.
