Coastal villages to visit

The town of Sidmouth is a short distance away with many high quality individual shops and the famous Folk Festival week in August every year.

It was featured in Coast Magazine, highlighting this quintessentially English seaside town as one of the finest in the country.


 Explore Branscombe a typical Devon village with thatched cottages, believed to be the longest village in England. The road meanders down to a beautiful beach and has a thatched beach tea shop 'The Sea Shanty'.

It is within walking distance (1 hour) over the hills or a short drive away.


Another fine example of a beautiful unspoilt Devon village is Beer, which has a lovely beach and is a natural sun trap.

 Lyme Regis is not far away, famous for its Cob which featured in the film French Lieutenants Woman. Winding streets are filled with quirky individual shops many selling fossils from the local beach and plenty of cafes for a cup of tea.

Axminster is home to Hugh Fernley Wittingstall's River Cottage Canteen.

With the new River Cottage HQ in the countryside towards Dorset, both locations are only 20 minutes away.

If you are attending a open day or cookery course such as bread baking, autumn preserves or allotment gardening (to name but a few) then Jasmine Cottage is a perfect place to stay.

 

Things to do in the country

Your trip to Weston would not be complete without a visit to The Donkey Sanctuary only a ten minute walk down the lane.

Wild food foraging is a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, from £15.00. See what can be found along the coast on an Edible Seashore Walk or in the woodlands for a Wild Food Walk. These walks have been featured in the Guardian and Robin your guide is a wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable forager. Why not join him and try a walk for yourself? There are day courses available too from £60.00, foraging for the ingredients then cooking and eat what you have found.

 

There are many National Trust walks in the area and of course the South West Coast Path is on our doorstep. Jasmine Cottage is perfect for walkers, with a drying area for muddy boots and wet coats and picnincs available on request.

 

Otterton Mill is a working water mill which has an artisan bakery selling flour and freshly made bread. They also have a wonderful events calendar and resident artists and jewelery makers selling their creations. A courtyard cafe serving Devon cream teas and a restaurant, its a perfect location for a walk along the river and a fine lunch.

 

Horse riding is available in Sidmouth with rides going through woodland and views of the coast.

Boat trips run by Stuart Line Cruises 01395 222144 from Exmouth. With others running all along the Jurassic Coastline. They can be joined at Sidmouth, Beer, Lyme Regis, West Bay, Weymouth & Portland, Lulworth Cove, Swanage, Wareham, Poole and Bournemouth.
