SEATON, EAST DEVON, 11 – 15 October

Note: I have moved this trip back by 3 weeks due to discovering that a Coldplay concert is taking place in Seaton during the original weekend in September. This caused the half-board cost for 4 nights to increase to over £500!

A break of up to 4 nights is planned in Seaton, arriving on Friday 11th October and departing on Tuesday 15th October. Seaton is on the Jurassic Coast in East Devon, mid-way between Sidmouth (where the group stayed in April 2019) and Lyme Regis.

Accommodation and Cost
Premier Inn Seaton Hotel, Harbour Road.

As at 18/12/2023, the cost for a double room for 4 nights occupied by 1 person is £284. It is proposed that members book themselves directly through Premier Inn. This allows each member to select the preferred number of nights as they wish. A half-board booking should be made – a ‘Meal Deal’ is available (currently £25) including breakfast, 2-course evening meal and a drink. Packed lunch items can be bought locally. There is a communal area with a bar where we can meet in the evenings.

Walks
There will be linear coastal walks on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will include the Lyme Regis to Axmouth Undercliff National Nature Reserve by catching bus 378 from Seaton to Lyme Regis. Sunday will be Sidmouth to Seaton via Branscombe and Beer Head by catching bus 9A from Seaton to Sidmouth. Monday will be an inland, partly circular (figure of 6) walk from Colyton via Parehayne Hill and Seaton Junction, returning via Colyford Common and Seaton Marshes by catching the tram from Seaton to Colyton.

Transport
Train to Axminster then bus (service 885) to Seaton. The postcode for Premier Inn is EX12 2NA.

To book, please book direct with Premier Inn and let me know when you have done so.
