Easter break in Axmouth and walks on the Jurassic Coast

A wonderful few days relaxing by the coast  (with great weather) and staying on the harbour side at Axmouth for a few days post-Easter break. Thanks to Sue for her charming cottage and Alastair Sawday for the recommendation.

Great walks to the wonderfully named Beer Head, fossil hunting at Chideock and Seatown. Walking from the harbour up onto the cliffs gives a wonderful view along the headland, then to walk along the shingle beaches you get to see all the rock strata and geological formations that give this, Jurassic Coast World Heritage site such an appeal for fossil hunters – and not far from the very early British oilfield at Kimmeridge ( K1 still nodding away)

Handy fish and chips and many a good pub to ease the weary limbs and thirst all along the South Coast pathway.
