| Events in Axmouth | 10 Places to Stay

Axmouth is an attractive small coastal village near to the River Axe in Devon, home to nearly five hundred people. The pretty colour washed cottages are peppered throughout, and the Norman church of St Michael’s has evocative Medieval Wall paintings to share. The ancient harbour today sees colourful yachts and fishermen take centre stage of many a canvas, a stroll around the harbour at sunset or sunrise is good for the soul, or maybe a walk along the Downland Cliffs or South Coastal Path will share stunning views and interesting wildlife. Above the village are the remains of an Iron Age Hill Fort, and for a link with the Romans the Fosse Way ends nearby. Animal Lovers will enjoy The Donkey Sanctuary which has five hundred furry reasons to visit, or for all things marine, the Marine Aquarium has lobsters, crabs and all things fishy, or how about Dinosaur Land where the Museum, Guided Walks and exhibits will certainly impress. For a link with history the Old Bakery, working Forge and Mill, tells a fascinating story where the secrets are unravelled. Or how about the imposing Medieval Manor House Shute Barton complete with Turrets and boasts the largest fireplace in England at 22’ across.
