Walk - Sidmouth to Seaton
10.3 miles (16.6 km)
Challenging - Severe to strenuous
Walking through the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is impressive at any time of year and in any weather conditions. There are some especially beautiful stretches here and so the many steep ascents and descents are certainly well worth the effort. Allow time to rest at intervals and take in the spectacular sights, including the spring and summertime butterflies enjoying the masses of wild flowers on top of the red cliffs at Branscombe, the extraordinary change in geology around Beer and keep a look out for the occasional peregrine.
Leave the red cliffs of Sidmouth as you set off along this rugged section of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, crossing 200 million year old rocks. The red Triassic earth gives way to striking white chalk around Beer before you arrive at the mouth of the River Axe and the rich red cliffs of the village of Seaton.
