Seaton's Local Attractions

The famous Beer stone, prized by stone masons and used in prestigious buildings including the Tower of London and Windsor Castle has been quarried by hand since Roman times. Take the tour underground and imagine carving great blocks of stone out of the face with just hand tools and the light of a candle. Open during the summer months private tours are available out of season by prior arrangement.

The three-mile route runs through East Devon's glorious Axe Valley, between Seaton, the small village of Colyford and the ancient town of Colyton. The journey takes 25 minutes from end to end with the option to stop off half-way at Colyford for lunch at the Inn.
