Axmouth Harbour, There is water available on the Pontoons by way of a hose, but no power, although there is in the yard for launch and retrieve boats.

Eating, Drinking and entertainment,
There is a Bar within the club with a raised deck overlooking the sea serving low price drinks to members and visiting yachtsman, every Friday from 1700 to 23:00 and Saturday 18:00 to 23:00 and Sunday lunchtime from 12:00, most lunchtimes there is Sunday Lunch through summer season. There are also talks on Friday nights, example Sail making, Crossing Atlantic,etc and The Axe Yacht Club is an RYA Certified training centre.

There is a Costa Coffee in Town with a Large Tesco 5 mins walking from Club, a number of bars all walking distance from the club, and they are currently building a Premier Inn, along with a tram that runs along the
estuary and on a bus route.
