Seaton and Axmouth straddle the mouth of the river Axe. The views from Axecliff Golf Club are truly breathtaking! Here is an excellent starting point for a walk through the Undercliff to Lyme Regis.
The coastal path to Beer is a little easier (about 2 miles) but just as spectacular.
Fishing is very popular around here, with course and game fishing available on private lakes and boats for hire at most of the local ports for sea fishing.
