About the property

An ideal holiday cottage

Awarded 4 stars by VisitEngland

An attractive Devon cottage, set in a small row of three, in the heart of this charming, pretty village of Colyford, near Seaton and between the coastal towns of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis.

An excellent and convenient holiday location situated near the quaint village store/post office selling local produce with excellent butchers offering locally sourced meat. There are two popular pubs in the village selling tasty food and one hotel/restaurant. The well-known Seaton Electric Tramway which can be boarded at Colyford, runs along the stunning Axe Valley between the seaside town of Seaton and the small historic town of Colyton. There is a superb riverside walk along the River Coly which starts opposite the White Hart Inn.

The coast at Seaton with Esplanade and spectacular mile long beach is just over a five minute drive. This is an exciting area for exploring the beaches and coves of the beautiful Lyme Bay Coast. Also visit the Seaton Jurassic Centre and the Colyford and Seaton Wetlands made up of four Local Nature Reserves with viewing hide. Spectacular cliff top walks from Seaton to the pretty fishing village of Beer and onto the seaside village of Branscombe, surrounded by National Trust land.

The popular coastal towns of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis are a twenty minute drive away. Nearby is the market town of Axminster, famous for its carpets and the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'River Cottage Canteen'. Axminster also holds a Thursday weekly street market.


A visit to Colyford is an ideal way of exploring this 'area of outstanding natural beauty' and all the region has to offer.

Lovely cottage - ideal for 2 people

Nice village - only one pub but another one opened on our last night.

Ideally situated for touring along the Devon/Dorset coast.

Lots of lovely coastal walks nearby

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Good location for shops, pubs and coastal path. Public transport was also good if you need it.

Great weather helped us enjoy the walking which we did every day. There was also a lot of history to explore when we wanted a change from walking.

Cottage was lovely, newly refurbished I think. Bottle of wine, tea, coffee and milk were all very welcome.
