Seaton is located between the ancient harbour of Axmouth and the white cliffs of Beer. Its mile long beach, which is part of the Jurassic Coast, opens onto the waters of Lyme Bay. The town itself has many small shops, a local hospital, doctors surgeries, primary school, banks and building societies. Seaton is a popular resort for holiday makers, and boasts a wealth of activities including golf, tennis, bowls and sailing. The County town of Exeter, with its regional airport, is some twenty miles to the west, and the mainline rail link to London (Waterloo) is at Axminster, approximately seven miles distant.
From our Seaton office (on foot) proceed up Eyre Court Road and turn left at the top into Sea Hill. Continue along down this road towards the sea and Churchills, 3 Sea Hill can be found on the left hand side indicated by our For Sale board.
Churchills was built in 1903 and converted into three flats in 1984 with the bathroom extension as well.
