About Seatown

Seatown is a small Hamlet along Dorset's famous Jurassic Coast and is popular with fossil hunters. It has a clean and quiet shingle beach (no dogs allowed) and is a good location for the elderly and young to fossil hunt due to its easy access. The surrounding area is part of Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Golden Cap (the highest point on the South Coast of England) just 1 mile to the West, and the town of Bridport is just 3 miles away.
The Whit Monday fair once held in Seatown used to sell 'Furmity' a popular Medieval dish, which was mentioned in the Thomas Hardy novel 'The Mayor of Casterbridge'.
