Axmouth, Seaton, Devon
Axmouth is the pretty little village you pass through just before you get to Seaton on the Jurassic Coast, stretching along the tranquil Axe estuary to the harbour. The main street of the village is lined with centuries old cottages and two pubs – The Harbour Inn and The Ship Inn; both are good for a bite to eat after a day on the beach and have beer gardens where that relaxed coastal ambience prevails.
Have a stroll along the estuary, get fish and chips in town then wander out and find a place to sit and eat them – a lovely thing to do at sunset with the colours reflected in the waters. The estuary is a haven for birdlife, migratory and residents; set up on one of the picnic benches with a picnic and have your binoculars at the ready.
If you stroll along the harbour at Axmouth you can pop into Jean’s Tea Caddy Café for a bacon sarnie, then amble along to the beach where at low tide it’s fun to spuddle about in the rockpools. If you fancy a good stroll pull on your boots and head up through the clifftop golf course to The Undercliff which continues for 7.5 miles to Lyme Regis along the South West Coast Path.
