About Axmouth

This quiet resort of colourwashed cottages sitting at the edge of the River Axe was once an important south Devon port. Now it is best known as the haunt of nature lovers who seek to photograph the waterfowl inhabiting the mud flats of the estuary, and as a favoured location for fishermen, for the Axe always yields a good catch, as does the sea.

Throughout the year the Axe estuary attracts bird watchers, it also provides excellent protected mooring for small boats, and each year the area grows in its attraction as a venue for windsurfing.

Axmouth harbour provides a pleasant location for relaxing, watching jostling boats and later in the evening it is a good place to watch the setting sun. The old bridge spanning the estuary is of concrete and one of the oldest in the country.

The nearby Downland Cliffs were the scene of a terrific cliff fall which happened on Christmas Day 1839. A walk between Axmouth and Lyme Regis takes you through the undercliffs where the accident occurred. The scenery en-route is stunning and you can still see the remains of a desolate cottage.

Axbridge makes a lovely choice for a family holiday, there is sailing, beautiful beaches for relaxing, water-sports, sea trips, wildlife, country lanes and cliff paths for walking, and in Axmouth itself visitors find pleasant shops, inns and restaurants. Nearby towns include Axminster and Chard, with the close by coastal resort towns of Seaton and Lyme Regis.
