The Undercliff nature reserve is lovely, enveloping woodland with occasional beautiful break-out views of the ocean but be warned, it is a tough walk with some steep up and down sections and the options basically consist of walking the whole nearly 7 miles from Seaton...More

Wonderful in winter or in summer to get away from the crowds, a hidden gem of the South West, walk all the way to goat island and see the orchids.

Already two hours before low tide visitors and amateur fossil hunters step down on the beach to look for fossils. mainly ammonites can be found. Some professionals bring a hammer, but looking around may and turning over some stones may have a better result.

The most amazing place to find fossils. We were amazed that there are larger rocks in the shore line with fossils on display, which are obviously too large to move. We found lots of smaller fossils to bring home.

Really impressed with the views along the Heritage Coastal Walk to the east and the seafront of Lyme Regis. The sea walls and history are very interesting and there are plenty of eateries and cafes with character along the front and throughout the quaint town....More

A bit rocky in places and some parts are hard going but well worth the effort. The views are stunning. This is where you will see the fossil hunters out in force.

Lyme Regis is a lovely place to visit. The area lends itself to a walk along the front as far as you wish and back. Plenty of cafes and seating areas along the way to keep you going too. There is a dog beach on...More

The walk from Lyme to Seaton along the Undercliff is steep and narrow. You have to pick your way through mud and tree roots and a lot of steep steps. Not for everybody, but a great walk if you like a challenge.

Parking is P & D but we parked up the road a little for nothing. Cliffs right next to walks. Not sure about fossil hunting to be honest as didn't check it out sorry

It would be if they enjoy walking. Path quite steep going up with scenic stream. Nice views on top here and their. The path as you enter the wooded area of undercliff can be tricky with uneven tree stumps.
