The sea might be a bit nippy, but the weather is still pleasant and a day trip to the beach is an ideal way to enjoy a sunny day. It's even better if there's a pub nearby.

Somerset is one part of the UK that is blessed with stunning beaches. Just a short drive from Lyme Regis, you'll find the scenic village of Seatown which boasts a magnificent beach where you can literally park your car right next to the sand.

Once you're there, you can either head straight for the beach or take a stroll along one of the breathtaking cliffs that offer panoramic views over Golden Cap and beyond.

For those in need of a drink after a day on the beach, The Anchor Inn is a quaint pub located right by the water. Known for its seafood, visitors come to enjoy a glass of wine and savour the fresh fish dishes while taking in the spectacular views.

Seatown is a charming spot, particularly during the height of summer when a pizza oven and a cafe shack serving excellent coffee are set up right on the beach. It's also incredibly accessible with parking close to the beach, making it a perfect location for a family day out at the seaside, reports the Mirror.

For those who wish to stay a bit longer, there's a lovely campsite situated right on the beach, complete with great picnic areas and its own grocery shop. Alternatively, you could book a room at the pub and settle in for the night.
