A most delightful, characterful and surprisingly spacious three bedroom end of terrace cottage built circa 1800's, only a short walk away from Colyton town centre. The property started life as two cottages and was amalgamated into one, back in the 1940's. The front door opens into a good size dining hall, leading to the kitchen and then the breakfasting area. There is a spacious dual aspect lounge with multi fuel stove, set in a brick fireplace with timber beam over. To the first floor are three spacious bedrooms all with stripped painted latch doors and floors and a good size shower room, with fabulous countryside views to the rear. A lovely cottage style garden to the rear with greenhouse and shed, together with the added bonus of a garage en bloc. Gas central heating and double glazing.

Colyton is a pretty little market town (more like a village) with a small town centre offering a good range of daily needs including two convenience stores, fish and chip shop, butcher, fresh fish and seafood outlet in the newly refurbished mill, hairdressers, post office, small stationers, pharmacy, health centre, garden centre, library and a few other individual shops. On the edge of the town is the Seaton tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary, linking Colyton and Seaton, which is very popular with tourists. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2 miles away and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east. There is a primary school in the town and the well regarded Colyton Grammar School is just over a mile away. A beautiful Church is at the heart of the town and there is an interesting variety of architecture. Nearby Axminster (6 miles), has a mainline station with regular trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The city of Exeter is approx. 25mins by car and the airport just outside Exeter is approx. 19 miles.
