Explore Seaton Wetlands and enjoy beautiful marshland and reedbeds alongside the River Axe. There are five bird hides and nearly 4km of level trails and boardwalks, suitable for wheelchairs, bikes and pushchairs. Visit the Discovery Hut for wildlife information, refreshments and pond-dipping equipment hire. There are exciting events throughout the year for all ages to enjoy. An off-road mobility scooter can be hired with advance notice.

There are a number of different areas – Colyford Common with its peaceful bird hide, viewing platform and a circular route around the reedbeds; Stafford Marsh with a wildlife garden, picnic area and Discovery Hut; Black Hole Marsh with 360 degree panoramic views over the intertidal lagoon where you can see the Seaton Tramway pass as well as spotting birds, ducks and kingfishers; and Seaton Marshes with its freshwater grazing marsh with scrapes, ditches, the Borrow Pit Pond and a bird hide.

Only assistance dogs are allowed, there is on-site parking, entry is free and there are toilets including accessible and baby changing. There is a fantastic Seaton Heritage Trail Map available to pick up from Seaton Wetlands or available online, which starts at Seaton Jurassic and is a 5 mile circular walk covering the seafront, cliffs, the wetlands, Jubilee Gardens, Couchill Common, Honeyditches Roman Site and more.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
