Budleigh Salterton Town in Devon

Photograph of Budleigh Salterton


Budleigh Salterton is a small town of about 5,000 people on the south coast of Devon. The town lies 15 miles south of Exeter, 5 miles east of Exmouth and 7 miles southwest of Sidmouth.

Budleigh Salterton lies at the mouth of the River Otter, where the estuary forms an area of reed bed and grazing marsh, an important haven for migratory birds and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is also part of the East Devon AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

Budleigh is also on the South West Coast Path, with clifftop routes eastward to Sidmouth and westward to Exmouth. The pebble beach and cliffs are part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, although this is an arrangement of geographical convenience, rather than being correct from the geological time point of view. Much of the geology is Triassic, represented by bunter sandstone (Budleigh Salterton Pebble Beds) and the area is also known for the radioactive nodules containing vanadium and uranium in red marl at Littleham Cove.
