We spent a week at Mariners sea eScape apartment, enjoying more than anything else the beautiful views from the living room & balcony. We did some fishing off the beach & caught some mackerel. There is lovely long promenade to meander up & down which goes from the Beer end of the resort to the mouth of the river Axe. We enjoyed people watching while having coffee (or something stronger in the evenings!) on the balcony; there were the early morning walkers striding out, some were jogging, and there were plenty of swimmers doing their daily toil! The sea was calm as a millpond during our visit & we took the opportunity for a quick dip, which was most invigorating!
We visited Sidmouth a short drive away to the west & also Bridport & West Bay (home of Broadchurch) to the east where we enjoyed a steam rally, lots of old engines and plenty of stalls selling their wares. On previous holidays to Seaton we have taken a ride on the tramway visiting the lovely villages of Colyford & Colyton. Everyone is so friendly & always has time to chat.
This is our 3rd visit to the apartment, and we are never disappointed. Pat & Nigel are excellent hosts, never intrusive, but always there to help out with any queries or questions. The view is spectacular spanning from Lyme Bay, & the river Axe round to Beer. The rooms are spotless and the bed linen crisp & white, we slept like babies in the king size bed. There are the usual facilities for self catering, a full size oven & hob, fridge and plenty of tableware, crockery etc.
We ate out a couple of times, the fish & chips from Frydays (either eat in or take away), were delicious, as was a meal at The Ship in Axmouth.
We will be returning to Mariners again next year.
