East Devon coastline
Weston's a hamlet close to Sidmouth in the East Devon AONB. Best known for its Donkey Sanctuary, Weston is also gateway to a quite stunning section of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

We can't recommend highly enough the South West Coast Path between Sidmouth and Beer. In our opinion, the view from Dunscombe Cliffs down to Weston Mouth Beach is one of the best coastal scenes in South West England.

A view
Buy a copy of the OS Explorer Map 115. This is the detailed OS Map of the area. Start at either Weston or the small-ish car park by the observatory to the east of Sidmouth. From either start point, head for Dunscombe Cliffs. At the point where the coastal path turns ninety degrees on top of the cliff is a coastal path way marker. From here, you're looking down at steep green cliffs that meet white pebble beach next to the sea. On a sunny day, when the colours are intense, the effect is wonderful.

The coastline snakes east. You'll see Weston Mouth Beach and Weston Ebb, Branscombe Ebb and Beer Head. Way in the distance is the Dorset coast.

From this viewpoint, follow the path around Lincombe, skirt Dunscombe Coppice and walk onto Weston Mouth Beach. Again, there are awesome views. To the south west, you'll see the coastline by Ladram Bay Sea Stacks.

The local area
With Sidmouth to the west and Branscombe and Beer to the east, there are plenty of top South West England destinations to explore. Beer is one of our favourite coastal villages in the UK.

Local attractions include Seaton Tramway and Beer Quarry, Pecorama and the National Trust's Branscombe Forge. The superb Bicton Park Botanical Gardens are to the west, over in Dorset we think Lyme Regis is a treat.

On the coast, visit Ladram Bay Beach and Ladram Bay Sea Stacks, Sidmouth (Jacob's Ladder) Beach and walk Sidmouth Cliffs (East). Enjoy the area's desert red cliffs and laze on Branscombe Beach.
