Seatown, Bridport, Dorset
To get to Seaton you follow a long winding lane that runs alongside the banks of the River Winniford which flows down to the privately owned beach where it joins the sea. You’ll pass high hedges billowing with wild flowers in the spring time, romantic old cottages and all the time those gorgeous coastal views get closer and closer.
There’s not much at Seatown as it’s only a tiny hamlet and because it can be a pain driving down those windy lanes and having to keep stopping and reversing for other cars, not so many people come here. Hence the car park is only a small one; other than that there’s a local holiday park and a pub – a very good pub which has won awards, The Anchor Inn.
Walk up over the cliffs on the South West Coast Path to Golden Cap, the highest point on the Dorset coast, or to Langdon Hill where there’s a carpet of bluebells in late April/May.
