About Carl Axon

Hi there..

I'm Carl and I'm a Musician and travel the world performing blues guitar and there really isn't a greater reward than that of making people happy, whether it be from dancing to my music or the countless lovely guests that now enjoy my Pet Friendly holiday home at the seaside.

I would be delighted to have you as guests and a great deal of care has been taken to prepare the cottage for your arrival to ensure you and your family feel right at home to enjoy a wonderful holiday or winter shortbreak.

Thank you for considering the cottage for your holiday, I look forward to being of service to you either now or in the future.

Carl Axon purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Carl Axon chose East Lindsey

If ever there was a perfect place to be by the seaside, then this really is it, Especially if you are a pet owner as the beach is just across the road!

An original former Victorian Fisherman's cottage by the sea that looks like it belongs more in Cornwall than Mablethorpe! Perfectly situated in a stunning location with a nature reserve at the rear and just 200 yards from the golden sandy beach, a real gem and one that i get really excited to go to, whenever i get the chance!

My staff and myself will be delighted to have you as guests and look forward to being of service now or in the future.

Thank you for considering our little cottage for your next holiday or winter shortbreak.

A Great Cottage located close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. It comes so well equipped that it is like home from home, with lots of nice touches. It is ideally located in a cul de sac with very friendly and helpful neighbours on either side. The beach is literally 2 minutes walk away and from the end of September to the beginning of May is dog friendly. Outside of these dates no dogs are allowed, understandably. The only problem is there is no parking outside. You can park about 50 metres away with no restrictions, however I wonder if it would be so easy at a more popular time. There is a pay and display car park there at a cost of £5.00 a day if you don't want to use a car whilst staying. There is a chip shop at the end of the road, slightly more expensive than going into Mablethorpe. We would also suggest a meal in Gerados if you like Italian. We had a huge meal there very reasonably priced. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a good seaside holiday.

Quite simply the best cottage we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

Fisherman's Cottage was one of the best cottages we have stayed in full stop. Wonderful position, no need to use the car, if like us you have 2 dogs that love to walk and have miles of coastal path which really is just across the road! Beautifully kept, peaceful and very cosy. Lots of books to browse through in front of the log fire and just a short stroll into town. Perfect! Would recommend to anyone

Had hoped to return

  • 4 of 5

Apart from a issue with parking everything was great. Cottage was clean and tidy. 2 minute walk to dog friendly beach. Chip shop at the bottom of the road, childrens play area at the top. Everything that a family would want really. Public car park about 200 yards give or take a few yards. We had hoped to return this year but have just read that pets are no longer welcome shame really.

Coast/Beach:

The Beach is just 200 yards from the Front door!

You can hear the waves of the sea from the cottage & Mablethorpe offers clean soft sands and good swimming at its award winning blue flag beach.

Further Details:

There's much more to Mablethorpe than its golden sands. But it's a great place to start having fun!

Safe, clean and vast, the Blue Flag beach is perfect for relaxing. Of course there's arcades and family fun, from crazy golf to boating and tennis at Queens Park, just across from the beach. But stroll along the promenade and discover some surprises!

Like our 'Bathing Beauties'. A giant 'Gin & Tonic'....... with a straw and a slice of lemon. Or the bright and breezy Victorian themed 'Camera Obscura'. Just wo of our cool beach hut designs along 10 miles of stunning coastline from Mablethorpe along to the genteel neighbouring resort of Sutton on Sea.

Each September they're the focus of the internationally acclaimed Bathing Beauties Festival, where you will see the beach, promenade and beach huts provide the backdrop for a programme of creative art installations, performances, arts and crafts.

When the autumn sun begins to fade and the winter nights draw in it's time to experience the exhilaration of high speed beach motorcycling, which has been entertaining our winter visitors for decades.
