Budleigh Salterton

Budleigh Salterton lies on the South West Coastal path with routes to Exmouth and Sidmouth. It is located at the mouth of the River Otter, which if you take the path along the reed beds and marsh area leads up to Otterton and the locally popular Otterton Mill. The pebble beach is part of the Jurassic coast. Within this picturesque town is Fairlynch Museum, which is housed in a thatched cottage dating from 1811, and covers local history and geology of the region, along with a large collection of period costumes.


For those of a sporty nature, there are fantastic facilities including East Devon Golf Club, an 11-lawn croquet club, football, cricket and a rifle club. Other game clubs are available such as tennis and bowls.

The town has also been featured on TV, namely series 3 of Top Gear where Jeremy Clarkson road tested a Bentley Continental GT, and was also mentioned in Blackadder the Third.
