The West Country region

East Budleigh, a "Britain in Bloom" winner every year since 2003, is best known as the birthplace of Sir Walter Raleigh. Set in the heart of the Devon countryside in an area of "outstanding beauty", the village has a brook meandering along the high street. It has an ancient church, community shop, a garage, two pubs and lovely tea rooms. East Budleigh is approximately 1.5 miles from the sea at Budleigh Salterton, a pretty, unspoilt pebble beach whilst the sandy beach of Exmouth is approximately 10 minutes drive. There is easy access to countryside and coastal walks.

East Budleigh is only a mile and a half away from the Jurassic Coast. The Jurassic Coast covers 95 miles of truly stunning coastline from Exmouth, in East Devon, to Dorset, with rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth's history. It is England's first natural World Heritage site. World Heritage status was achieved because of the site's unique insight into the Earth Sciences as it clearly depicts a geological 'walk through time'. World heritage sites are places of 'outstanding universal value' selected by UNESCO. Exmouth, at the estuary's mouth, marks the World Heritage Coastline's western gateway and despite being one of England's oldest resorts, remains untouched by commercialism.

Budleigh Salterton

There is so much to do in the local area:

1. Proximity to the Jurassic coast, a World Heritage site. Enjoy glorious walks with breathtaking views

2. Great beaches - Budleigh Salterton is a pretty shingle beach (1.5 miles), whilst Exmouth (5.5 miles) is a large sandy beach.

3. Many attractions for all the family in easy reach, such as Bicton Park Botanical gardens - beautiful gardens, children's play areas & train ride. Or Powderham Castle which is rumoured to be haunted, or The Seal Sanctuary.

4. Proximity to Exeter, with its wonderful cathedral and great shopping and only 10 miles away.

5. Great Golf, including East Devon Golf club within 5-10 minutes drive situated on the cliff top at Budleigh Salterton at the western end of the World Heritage coast, with magnificent views along the coast. One of the finest courses in the south west, according to Peter Alliss, the 16th tee provides 'the best view in golf'.

6. Lots of lovely country pubs and tea rooms in the area! Probably not the best holiday for those on a diet as there really is an abundance of good food on the doorstep, including lovely delis and farm shops.

We would also love to hear about any great finds in the local area-places of interest, pubs, restaurants, etc.
