• With Kids in the Westcountry

Seatown beach & wood fired pizza

Seatown beach is tucked secretly away between the well-known resorts of West Bay and Lyme Regis on the West Dorset coast. Accessed via a narrow lane off the A35 at Chideock, Seatown is a pretty hamlet with a sand and fine pebble beach between the beautiful but crumbly cliffs. A stream bends its way into the sea (perfect for paddling, dam building and stepping stones!)

From March through to autumn, weather permitting, you can find the Chariot of Fire cooking up generous wood-fired pizzas on a Friday evening and Saturday and Sundays from 12.00-7.00ish - can you beat pizza on the beach at sunset??

If pizza is not your thing, there is a lovely pub - The Anchor - serving good food with a kids menu and a killer view 12-4pm and 5-8pm Wednesday to Monday (closed Tuesdays.)

Forgot your bucket and spade?! No worries, there’s a little convenience store at the Holiday Park next to the car park, which is surprisingly well stocked with pretty much anything you could ever need for a day out at the beach.

Things to note:

Sat Nav postcode DT6 6JX

There are toilet facilities

Parking costs £5… after 4pm it’s an honesty box Access is via a narrow country lane, single track in some places

Beach shelves at the shoreline and there can be a strong drag

Beach shoes / wetsuit shoes highly recommended for your comfort - the pebbles hurt your feet!

Avoid the cliffs
