Seatown Beach

Seatown is a beautiful privately-owned beach, located just a stones throw from our Golden Cap Holiday Park. It can be accessed by following a one mile lane from the A35 in Chideock, just outside of Bridport. Like most of the beaches along the Jurassic Coastline, Seatown is predominantly shingle with a shelving bank and great for those looking for a quiet retreat, ideal for relaxing and watching the world go by. Seatown is also a popular fossil hunting destination as well a favourite spot for anglers.

The land surrounding the beach has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the spring, in particular, pink flowers carpet the cliffs, creating a wonderful backdrop. Seatown is perfectly placed for those looking to explore or tackle small sections of the South West Coast Path. From the car park there are a selection of beautiful walks, varying in length and difficulty. From here you can also walk to Golden Cap, which is the highest point on the south coast and boasts far reaching views in every direction.

Food and drink

The Anchor Inn is situated on the cliffside at Seatown offering spectacular views along the coast line. The rustic and welcoming pub serves an extensive menu, which uses local produce wherever possible. There is ample outside seating in the garden and terraced areas, ideal for enjoying a delicious locally brewed beer and watching the sun go down.

Parking

There is ample pay and display parking just a moments walk from the beach. Here you will also find public toilet facilities as well as ‘Seatown Stores’, The Golden Cap Holiday Park shop which sells food, drink, pizzas and beach toys and games.

Please note dogs are welcome on the beach from 1st October until 30th April.
