Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We booked to stay at the old post office over the new year period and we had such a lovely time. As soon as we all walked into the house we all said how beautiful it was. The place was spacious and clean and located in a nice quiet area. The place had everything we could have possibly needed for...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words Lia. So pleased that you had a lovely stay at the cottage and enjoyed all that the area has to offer. I must admit you have made us feel envious as we have had so many wonderful New Years in Axmouth! Please come again and take advantage of the 10% discount that we offer...

The Old Post Office was perfect for our stay (two adults, two teens and a dog), with everything we needed. It was great to be able to walk to a couple of pubs -- both dog-friendly, and both with excellent food -- and it was easy to access the A-roads needed to take us to Lyme Regis and West Bay...

Management response:

Wow! You have just summed up perfectly what is great about our location. We are so lucky to have two good pubs just around the corner. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this down for others to benefit from. Hopefully you will come and stay again. Kind regards, Richard

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.
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.
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.

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.
