Budleigh Salterton, East Bud & Colaton Raleig Holidays
Self Catering Holidays in Budleigh Salterton
By choosing Budleigh Salterton for your self catering holiday cottage you have chosen well. This dignified, elegant, Edwardian resort has very much a character all of its own.
The town is set into red sandstone sea cliffs with a sweeping pebble beach – the setting for Sir John Millais’ painting ‘The Boyhood of Raleigh’ (Sir Walter Raleigh was born at Hayes Barton close to the town).
Impressive cliff walks, the riverside bird sanctuary and open country of nearby Woodbury Common are all factors which rightly make ‘Budleigh’ so popular. Woodbury Common is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest with over 70 species of bird, many butterflies and reptiles, rare flora and fauna and is excellent for walking, riding, cycling or just picnicking.
The town has an excellent choice of shops and amenities offering old world standards of service. There is also a good selection of quality restaurants and pubs.
