Slow Ways linking Seaton and Colyton, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth

England / Devon / Seaton

Seaton’s three Slow Ways are 100% checked

Help connect Seaton

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Seaton’s Slow Ways.

There are many short ascents and descents along the way, some have steps, so it's quite strenuous for the distance....

Fabulous route and I agree with everything that others have said - it is hard going at times, so you need to be prepared as there is no exit or cafe along the way. I agree that it would be better if the route came straight down to the coast at Lyme Regis, following the SWCP, so that you can see the Cobb and the waterfront there. The scenery, landscape and vegetation are unusual and well worth the effort....

I only walked the section from Branscombe to Seaton, but it was wonderful - and at least I avoided half of the steep climbs! Branscombe beach and Beer both have lovely cafes to stop and recharge. An excellent route - but a long and tiring day if you are thinking of doing the whole 10 miles....

This is a pleasant short route between the coast at Seaton and the medieval town of Colyton....

There's a regular bus service between Seaton and Lyme Regis, so this makes a good route even if based at one end or the other. Alternatively, a longer day out can be had by following the triangle of slow ways Lyme Regis - Colyton - Seaton - Lyme Regis....

Stunning walk along the Jurassic Coast, but it is hard work! There are many steep climbs and descents, most of them are stepped, which helps, but you will get a good work out on this route....

However, the fact that the route follows hills beside the valley means that there are good views, and you can catch a glimpse of the Seaton Tramway from time to time, when the high Devon hedgerows allow it....

Walk this route

A stunning walk, completely off road, often under the canopy of trees. Signage at the beginning of the walk describes it as arduous. It has steep gradients (long climbs at the beginning and end) so is not easily accessible if you don't feel fit....

This is a fabulously scenic route that follows the South West Costal Path along the cliff tops of The Jurassic Coast. It is quite challenging with several steep valleys to be crossed en-route. Refreshments and toilets are available at Branscombe beach cafe....

MartinPratt

Walk this route

This route basically follows the South West Coastal Path but has an unnecessary diversion to Street (which is a descent and climb) and also uses the Old Beer Road on the outskirts of Seaton. This section of road is currently shut following a cliff land-slip. The added route of Sidsea two is more direct and includes the diversion to avoid the closed road....
