Axminster Certificated Locations

Located within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Axminster is a pretty market town situated on the River Axe, just a few miles inland from the Jurassic Coast.


The town is famous for its carpets, which were first made here in the 18th century - head to the heritage museum in the Thomas Whitty House to learn more.


For those who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, the East Devon Way footpath and the Buzzard Route cycle track both pass close to the town. Visitors can also visit the Axe Estuary to watch for wildlife like otters, kingfishers, oystercatchers, and egrets.
