  • Seaton Jurassic

Seaton in Devon is a coastal town on the Jurassic Coast with a stunning natural environment, year-round outdoor activities, places to eat and shop and a range of attractions and events.

Some of the best attractions in or close to the town include Seaton Jurassic with interactive displays taking you on a journey through time over 250 million years of history; Seaton Tramway with 3 miles of heritage tramway through nature reserves and countryside; a Jurassic themed Adventure Golf Course; Seaton Wetlands with 4km of trails and bird hides on the River Axe; Pecorama which is one of East Devon’s leading attractions with a fleet of miniature steam locomotives; Imagine Design Create with a treasure trove of creative souvenirs and workshops for keen crafters of all ages; Stuart Line Cruises with boat trips around Lyme Bay and along the coast towards Sidmouth and Ladram Bay; and Beer Quarry Caves with tours of 2,000 year old man-made caverns.

As well as these great attractions, there is the esplanade and seafront with a 1 mile long shingle beach, a flat promenade with seating, ice cream huts and beach side cafes and views across Lyme Bay to Beer Head. Take a stroll from the seafront to the Cliff Field Gardens where you can discover the Labyrinth revealing 185 million years of evolution and the Geological Timeline telling the story of earth starting 4600 million years ago. The South West Coast Path passes through Seaton, with beautiful walks to the village of Beer and along the Undercliffs Nature Reserve to Lyme Regis, which is well worth the 6 mile walk.

Seaton is the only place on the Jurassic Coast where all three Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods can be seen at once. The geological, wildlife habitat and landscape have achieved national and international acclaim with the world heritage status, three European Special Areas of Conservation, East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and numerous local wildlife designations. Seaton’s setting is enchanting. Approach from the top of Seaton Down Hill and you’ll see the whole expanse of the Axe Valley and the magnificent Lyme Bay stretching before you.

  • 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.

  • 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.
