If you have never ridden on a tram, the Seaton Tramway is a unique attraction, running from the town-centre terminus at Seaton up the valley of the River Axe through Colyford to the small town of Colyton.

The tramway uses the track bed of the former branch railway from Seaton Junction to Seaton Town (the railway closed in 1966).  Following the conversion to a tramway, the line has amassed a growing fleet of trams - now numbering 14.  These represent the designs used on many of the UK’s former tramway systems.  The Colyton terminus includes a gift shop and small restaurant serving snacks, as well as providing easy parking.  Trams run daily from April to October, with a reduced service in winter.  (Find out more now.)

Colyton is about 5 miles from “Baldash Cottage”.
