how to fix this door threshold draughts?

Any ideas how I can stop draughts with our inward opening front door, I have tried brush strips from storm guard but there's still a small draught coming through as there is a gap of about 5mm at the bottom of the door. threshold strips seem to be too high without removing the door and cutting it down which I don't fancy doing.
Think an adhesive foam strip would do the job? Currently have a draught cushion inside but its a bit of a pain to keep removing it to open the door.

unfortunately those brush strips won’t work effectively in that application - the internal finishes against the mat.

Im not sure if that matters is sitting in a well or is loose.

If it’s loose you could fit a thin strip of wood across to meet the brush strip.

If you want a seal that will work abd you really don’t want to remove the door, then a drop down seal is the only real option. You need one with a special stop to active the seal.
