Axbridge is a small characterful market town at the foot of the outstanding Mendip hills. In the middle ages, Axbridge was once an important wool producer, and in earlier times a river port. This was reflected in its early charters, allowing it to hold markets, fairs and become a royal borough. It even had it’s own mint, with coins showing the Towns symbol the ‘Lamb and Flag’. The layout of the town has changed little over the centuries with its half timbered leaning buildings and picturesque narrow streets. Today Axbridge has a warm sense of community at its heart, and offers a wide range of events, clubs and activities. As well as two excellent pubs, a small grocery store, post office and two free carparks. Axbridge square also boasts a wonderful monthly farmers market. Axbridge is well located for commuting to the local business centres of Wells, Cheddar, Weston-Super-Mare and Bristol, via the nearby M5 and A38. Bristol International Airport is a 20 minute drive away.
