Nature reserve set to provide a tasty treat for local mums

Mums are being invited to enjoy a cream tea at Seaton Wetlands to celebrate their special day next month.

East Devon District Council’s countryside team has come up with the idea of combining a visit to one of the district’s top nature attractions with a tasty treat for Mother’s Day

Children can take their mum to the nature reserve’s discovery hut on Saturday and Sunday, March 10 and 11, from 10am to 4pm and enjoy a cream tea for £3 per person, on a first come first served basis. There’s no need to book, just turn up.

In addition to the cream teas, all visitors will have the chance to learn more about Seaton Wetlands from the volunteers who run the discovery hut each weekend and to meet the site’s resident harvest mouse. There is wheelchair and pushchair access.

Other refreshments can be purchased for a donation towards Seaton Wetlands. Please note there are no card payment facilities.

The Discovery Hut at Seaton Wetlands is open 10am to 4pm Saturday to Monday throughout the year for hot drinks, refreshments and various activities.
