May visit to Colyford

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a weeks stay at Lyme Cottage with or dog "Charlie"

The cottage is very comfortable and offers lots of old world charm with a sheltered rear terraced garden that becomes a sun trap in the afternoon. There are two pubs very nearby that offered differing styles of food and drink and we enjoyed visiting both . The only negaitive is the fact that the cottage faces straight on to a bust A road and there is a need to be extreamley careful when entering the front of the house as some drivers dont appreciate thier speed or the need to give pedestrians space

Colyford cottage

  • 4 of 5

Parking space for the car was really poor and if you have any mobility problems or small childeren then the arrangements would not be suitable.The garden and paving were not looked after very well. We were disappointed that the cottage did not have internet access, I had not realised this when I booked. Also the cottage is on a very busy A road, traffic noise not good in the mornings and there was a lot of dust from the road. Comfortable enough but personally did not like all the dark furniture everywhere especially in the bedrooms. Not the best cottage we have stayed in, though obviously the owners wanted it to feel homely.
