A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Seaton (Cornwall)

More of a hamlet than a village, Seaton has its own beach and a quaint village green. Along the coast is the much busier Looe, a lively resort that straddles a river and edges up the sides of a deep wooded valley. Seaton’s biggest attraction is undoubtedly the Monkey Sanctuary, home to a colony of Woolly monkeys and a group of Capuchin monkeys, all of which are guaranteed to melt the heart.

Dog friendly beach & nature reserve.

Seaton has a really lovely beach where dogs are able to walk easily, right around to neighbouring Downderry. There's a really nice beach café and pub right on the front and a very useful 'village green' area right on onto the beach too for picnics/kids play area, with a car park attached (there are around 12 free parking spaces around the green itself, a real rarity these days too). But the hidden treasure is the nature reserve directly at the back of the car park - you and the dogs can walk two miles to neighbouring Hessenford, through a beautiful wooded pathway, with lovely small lakes and smaller 'otter trails' along the way. A really wonderful surprise which you simply must explore!
