About the location


Exmouth 5.2 miles, Sidmouth 7.1 miles; Exeter 14.5 miles

The picturesque town of Budleigh Salterton is nestled on the East Coast of Devon and sits at the mouth of the River Otter, where you can enjoy a leisurely walk or stop off in one of the local cafes. The River Otter forms an area of grazing marsh and reed bed, which is of great significance for migratory birds and is therefore an excellent place for birdwatching. The coastal town is renowned for its preserved natural beauty, including a two-mile pebble beach for those wishing to take a dip in the crystal-clear water. The high street boasts an array of charming cafes, shops, pubs and a museum, or sit in the beach hut on the promenade to soak in some scenery. Cyclists will be delighted with the country lanes, offering tranquility away from the busier toads in the town. There is also easy access into both Paddington and Waterloo from the main railway station, making Budleigh Salterton an ideal base for everyone.
