Fairlynch Museum - working with schools and colleges

Fairlynch is an educational charity, staffed entirely by volunteers and financed by donations. It is housed in a pretty Grade II Listed Georgian thatched cottage beside the sea.

The Museum is on Fore Street, close to the beach in Budleigh Salterton. The Museum is open from the beginning of April to the end of September and has artefacts, photographs and press cuttings telling the story of how the town has evolved.  We welcome visits from special interest groups and schools, but our rooms are not large, so please contact us first to arrange a time when we can open just for you, perhaps with an introductory talk about our collections. We look forward to meeting you!
