There are over 4km of trails and boardwalks to explore Seaton Wetlands, in Devon. Situated alongside the River Axe, this nature reserve has been made wheelchair accessible.
Through the Countryside Mobility scheme, an all- terrain wheelchair is available for hire ensuring that visitors with mobility issues can come along to the reserve and spend leisurely time watching the wildlife and soaking up this wonderful area.
Volunteer staff are often available, at the Discovery Hut, to talk to visitors.
They have a wealth of knowledge about the birds and other wildlife that you may see and sightings that have been made. The Island Hide looks right over the Stafford Marsh and is accessible for wheelchairs.
To get there: At Colyford Post Office on the A3052, turn into Seaton Road. After half a mile turn left into Seaton Cemetery and continue through to Seaton Wetlands carpark. Nearest Postcode: EX12 2SP
For this walk I used the DaVinci Trail Rider wheel, which was ideal for this terrain. The route is flat with well-defined tracks and boardwalks. It is ideal for a manual wheelchair. Refreshments are available at the Discovery Hut. There are those all-important accessible loos there too. The Countryside Mobility Scheme is a fabulous resource – make use of the powered wheelchair that is there to hire.
