BUDLEIGH-SALTERTON, a village in East Budleigh parish, Devon; on the coast, immediately west of the mouth of the Otter, 2¼ miles S of East Budleigh. It has a post office under Exeter, hotels, and many respectable lodging-houses; was, not long ago, an obscure fishing hamlet; and is now a fashionable watering-place.
It occupies a dell, running obliquely to the shore; looks warm and luxuriant; and commands rich means of comfort and recreation. Coleridge says of the Otter in its neighbourhood,
I never shut amid the sunny ray,
But straight with all their tints the waters rise;
Thy crossing plank, thy marge with willows gray,
And bedded sand that, veined with various dyes,
Gleamed through thy bright transparence.

Budley is situated near the mouth of the river Otter. It is a very small place, but has a weekly market, which is holden on Monday.
Tidwell is in Budley parish. Here is a pond, or pool, fed by springs, that are continually bubbling up, and so warm, that, when all the neighbouring springs are frozen, these are not.
