Out and About

Membury lies within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are about  five miles from the East Devon and the Dorset ANOBs. So we are an ideal centre for discovering a delightful, unexplored corner of Devon but also bordering both Somerset and Dorset.

Eight miles to the South lie the coastal towns of Seaton and Lyme Regis.   Local beaches offer sand and shingle, rocks or promenades—there is variety enough at our World Heritage Site coastline to interest all ages. Great to explore by bus -watch this video!
