Very rude driver, unaccommodating for my wife and two very young children, costly and half the journey has a fantastic view of a Tesco's being contructed. Save yourself a trip to a very grim Seaton and avoid.More

At present, it is not possible to directly stop at Seaton Wetlands. You can however access Seaton Wetlands from both Seaton and Colyford, both of which have stops.
