Axmouth, Seaton and Beer
Once an important international port, Axmouth is now a sleepy waterside village of stone cottages. Look for the photogenic spot where the River Axe curves through pebbles to the sea.
Today Axmouth is overshadowed by the newer town on the west bank of the river. Seaton’s whitewashed Victorian shops and cafes fill twisting streets behind its one-mile pebble beach. The highlight is an eccentric electric tram that runs for three miles along the marshy Axe Valley.
Pick of the trio though is Beer, with its long charming main street leading to a small photogenic stony beach where fishing boats are pulled up between white cliffs.
