Axmouth, Seaton, Devon

If you venture over to Seaton on the Jurassic Coast when you’re on your family holiday in Devon, you’ll drive through Axmouth on your way. This pretty little village has a backdrop of steeply wooded hills and the calm waters of the Axe estuary and could easily be described as picture postcard perfect. The main street is lined with old thatched cottages, a Norman church and two good pubs – The Harbour Inn and The Ship Inn.

It's a nice place for a stroll along the estuary, to sit and watch the multitude of birdlife or to enjoy fish and chips as the sun sets. If you stroll out along the harbour you can grab a cup of tea at Jean’s Tea Caddy Café, hire a kayak and even go sea fishing. The pebbly beach is dog friendly year round and at low tide, is great for rockpooling.
