Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Where Carisbrooke is situated you are in the heart of the Jurassic Coast, an ideal base for walking excursions along the glorious coast line. Alternatively at Axmouth Harbour you can relax with a snack and drink at the Chandlery whilst soaking up the views. You can arrange local chartering to go out bass fishing for the day.
Axmouth Golf Course is situated on top of the Haven cliff that you can see in the background of the harbour. A cliff top walk to Lyme Regis cuts across this golf course. The mud flats of the Axe river is a recognized haven for many breeds of birds and is on your doorstep (i.e. 400yds ).
You often see people along the side of the river with their binoculars trying to catch sight of a rare bird. For those not wishing to walk, go back in time and take a tram ride that runs along the side of the river.

The West Country region
Seaton has a long history going back to Saxon and Roman times. The Haven cliff was a major navigation landmark for seafarers who were endeavouring to sail into Axmouth harbour. The neighbouring villages of Beer and Branscombe were home of many smugglers, the most famous of which was Jack Rattenbury.
Seaton is right at the heart of the beautiful Jurassic Coast which is England’s first World Heritage Site. This covers 95 miles of truly stunning coastline from East Devon to Dorset.
These are just a few of the Local Attractions:

"HOME FROM HOME"
What a little gem. We had a very comfortable stay here; everything you could think of was provided even down to a cafetiere and a biscuit tin. There was an extremely well equiped kitchen and everything was spotless. The property was in a very convenient location being only a few yards from the beach and 5+ minutes walk to the town, harbour, tram, main bus stop etc. The owners were very helpful and friendly and there were fresh flowers on the table and fresh fruit and a tea tray including a packet of biscuits in the kitchen, which was a lovely touch. There is so much to do in Seaton and I would highly recommend this property and Seaton.

"Mother of the Groom, and family, wedding base!"
Confused by the title? Don't be. When my eldest son and his lovely fiancée announced that they were going to be holding their wedding in the Branscombe area of glorious East Devon, I knew that accommodation for the event would have to be flexible enough for all those last minute 'Mum' request.
Already knowing the Seaton area and it's local facilities I decided to choose a self-catering venue. Having searched the web I came across 'Carisbrooke'. The reviews read well so decided this was the place. The family and I were not disappointed!
Allistair and Zoe are a lovely couple who have put a lot of thought into the accommodation, of which lots of good points are already mentioned in the guest book and reviews. Carisbrooke is truly a 'Home from Home' and more. Even my eight year old Grandson requested sleepovers he liked the place so much!
If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is relaxing, well located for the town, beach and pleasant strolls in the evening; the harbour and river at sunset are wonderful, then you really can't go wrong. Don't deliberate about booking Carisbrooke, DO IT!
Now where is my 2014 diary so I can book next years break? ..

"Very comfortable accomodation, with home from home feel."
Everything has been thought of by the hosts, including tea,coffee, milk,etc. handy if you arrive late and miss the shops. Well equipped kitchen with butler sink, dishwasher, range cooker, cookware, utensils, etc. Utility room with a washing machine a hotel would be proud of. The lounge is comfortably furnished with 2 leather sofas and dining table at the end of the room. Wi-fi connection is provided, so take your laptop.
The sea front is about 1 minutes amble, and the ice-cream kiosk is near.
The property is within easy strolling distance to Axmouth harbour and Seaton town centre.
The recently built Tesco is within easy reach and the store does not impinge on the outlook of the property.
Ideally situated for all local venues and coastal towns and scenery the property features a carport at the side making loading and unloading cars a doddle.
Our second stay here and not our last.

"Everything we needed for a warm and very comfortable stay."
Zoe and Alistair gave us a warm welcome on a very cold day! The bungalow was very warm and comfortable and we appreciated the flowers and fruit to welcome us. We were walking the coastal path from Exmouth to Lyme Regis over the week and the property was ideally placed and offered all the comfort and hot baths we needed to ease our tired bodies! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equiped. The weather was the first dry week of the year but the temperatures were icy so we needed to be cosy when we returned from our days walking. Seaton had all the shopping we required and more. We would recommend Carisbroke.
