Why Carl Axon chose Mablethorpe

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.

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.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was as advertised. The whole house was clean and tidy. The small garden to the rear of the house, lovely for morning coffee. Even though we stayed in November the house was warm and cosy. With one of the bedrooms being downstairs it is ideal for someone with limited abilities. Would definitely recommend and will use again. The only problem is that the parking of your vehicle is halfway down the road next to a car park. To park in the car park will cost you £2.00 per day.

Lovely cottage exactly in the position we would have wanted

Cottage was 3 minutes walk to the sea front, 3 minutes to the park & 5 minutes walk to the town centre & all the amenities, the ideal location with having 2 dogs with us. We couldn't have wished for better
