The town and coast is an easy two miles from East Budleigh. If you are staying in the village, frequent buses take you there and there are a most eclectic range of private shops and plenty of good places to eat or have a cup of coffee. Take your walking shoes and the coast path is yours to explore.
East Budleigh is an ideal centre from which to tour Devon. Just two miles from the Jurassic Coast, with sandy beaches at nearby Sidmouth and Exmouth and the dignified resort of Budleigh Salterton nearby. Historic Hayes Barton is a short walk from the village and probably the most interesting gardens in all of Devon Bicton Park, are close at hand.
