This ancient small village is adjacent to the Axe River and estuary and nestles in a steep wooded valley surrounded by rural unspoilt countryside. The famous South West Coast Path lies on the edge of the parish and offers spectacular views across Lyme Bay and the Undercliff. The village is fortunate to have two excellent public houses; The Ship and The Harbour, offering a selection of locally sourced produce and local beers. The Axe Estuary Wetlands is just across the river and is well managed as a wildlife reserve. A large number of birds congregate to feed on the mudflats and salt marshes and these can be viewed at close quarters from one of many hides strategically located along the reserve.

Seaton is a seaside and fishing village sandwiched between Axmouth 20 minutes away, and Beer 5 minutes away in opposite directions. Seaton beach is the longest shingle beach in Devon, stretching over a mile long and overlooking Lyme Bay. The beach is gently sloping so is great for all watersports and swimming. Running the length of the beach is the esplanade leading to the town at 1 end and the cafe at the other end. The town has a variety of sops including the Co-op and several pubs, The Malthouse is dog friendly and even offers dog biscuits for good behaviour! Seaton Tramway can be picked up here and takes you alongside the River Axe estuary and through 2 nature reserves. There are many walks to be taken along the coastline to soak in the wonderful views and countryside, For those who like a challenge, there is a Seaton to Lyme Regis walk through the undercliffs, this is uneven ground and often slippery and is not a short walk but the scenery soon makes up for this. A short walk or drive away is the village of Beer. The beach here is a sheltered bay with a pebble beach and there are several cafes and pubs which are dog friendly. Pecorama in Beer is a great day out for the children with indoor and outdoor areas, crazy golf and a miniature model railway to ride on.
