We rented the cottage for our Christmas holidays. The five of us (plus dog) were very comfortable, plenty of room for everyone and a very well appointed kitchen with everything needed to prepare our Christmas dinner. The cottage is very well renovated and nicely furnished and decorated. It is actually bigger than it looks on the pictures. It's a great...

About the neighbourhood
Axmouth is a lovely, small, unspoilt village on the Devon/Dorset border, close to the popular attractions of Seaton, Colyton, Beer, Branscombe, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth.<BR>There are two pubs in the village, serving great food and drinks. The ancient Harbour Inn has a wonderful open log fire- superb for a cosy night in the winter and the Ship Inn are both only a few minutes walk.<BR>Seaton is famous for the tram railway which runs from the town centre to the charming town of Colyton along the river Axe and its haven for birdlife. A great day out for children and adults alike.<BR><BR>Our local golf club is the Axe Cliff Golf Club and is a good challenge, set on top of the cliff with spectacular views of Lyme Bay.
