The Front Doors of Axbridge: Delightfully Different


The Front Doors of Axbridge

The front doors of Axbridge: delightfully different

Axbridge is a small town in Somerset, it’s a pretty charming place – all the houses are tightly packed together but none of them alike either in period or size. They do all have one thing in common though – a beautiful front door. Of course they’re still pretty varied but all equally delightful. When me and Kath visited last year (for our fauxglasto weekend) we couldn’t resist going out for a wander, camera in hand, to document the scene.

From the Medieval studded door of the butchers, to the baby blue gateway hiding the secret garden, to the understated elegance of April Cottage’s entrance peering from behind the chrysanthemums. Each one has it’s own appeal.

It was also what spurred me on to finally invest in my own front door and I’m pretty confident my Manchester house could now stand proud among it’s Southern Axbridge counterparts.

Our Favourite: Welcome Mats


“Take your shoes off!”

I always used to get into trouble for trailing my muddy shoes across the hall carpet, so much so we had a strict ‘no wearing shoes inside’ policy at my parents house. Fair enough I hear you say, but when I was even banned from wearing my brand spanking bonafide Kickers I wasn’t happy (terrible childhood right?)

Now it’s my turn to make the rules, all I ask is that guests wipe their feet before they come in – so a door mat is an essential accessory. Here’s our best, most reasonably priced picks (after all you don’t want to be spending an awful lot on something that is essentially designed to become filthy).



1. Coir Doormat – Good Day $29 (apologies this is USA only but it’s my favourite – hopefully it’ll be in UK stores soon),  2. Ovalado Doormat £19.99, 3. Fox Washable Doormat £7.99, 4. Cloudy Browns door mat £15, 5. Margo Selby Phoenix Doormat £20, 6. Morocco Door Mat £10, 7. Pheasant Bird Coir Doormat £17
