River Cottage

Axminster is also home to River Cottage and so if you’re planning to visit either of the River Cottage establishments – the River Cottage Canteen in the centre of Axminster, or River Cottage HQ at Park Farm, which is some distance out of town – then we can ensure a smooth and comfortable journey to and from the venue. Whether you are choosing to stay in the area at one of the B&Bs or guest houses or arriving at the local train station Payne’s Premier Travel will collect you and take you to the venue and our drivers will be waiting for you when the tractor delivers you back to the car park at the end of your chosen event.

Holiday or business travel

Travelling on holiday or a business trip? Why not avoid the hassle and inconvenience of airport car-parking and shuttle bus service and use our airport transfer service.
Start your holiday experience the moment you leave your own front door and travel in style arriving at your departure terminal relaxed and ready to fully enjoy your holiday. Upon your arrival back at the airport our professional and courteous staff will be waiting to collect you on your return home. 4, 6 and 8 seater vehicles (including wheelchair accessible vehicles) from East Devon to all UK airports, Cruise terminals and Ferry Ports

Axminster Station – the gateway to the ‘Jurassic Coast’

If Axminster train station is your arrival point in the area we will be pleased to meet you off the train at Axminster station and take you to your destination, whether it is in Axminster itself, in the surrounding countryside, or on the coast – for example, Seaton, Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Charmouth or Bridport.





Other Special Occasions

Anniversaries, birthdays or other special occasions. Make the celebration extra special and travel to and from your chosen venue in luxury and style. We can provide tailored packages to meet your requirements.


Travelling with children

While it is not a legal requirement in taxis for children to travel with booster seats we understand that many parents/guardians do prefer their children to travel in safety. We can provide booster seats on request or will gladly allow you to use your own child seat in our vehicles.


Theatre and Concert Breaks

Why not treat yourself to an evening at the theatre or concert hall? Whether a local production or a West End hit, we will make your evening all the more memorable and relaxed with a first-class service from front door to foyer. And after the final encore, look no further than the venue entrance for your return travel home.
