Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, butcher's, baker, convenience stores, fish and chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services. The beautiful Norman Church is the centre point of the town, which is most famous for the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion. 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 nearby Colyton Grammar School is another draw for the area as the school consistently appears in the top 10 Grammar Schools in the country. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2 miles away, with the seaside resort of Lyme Regis to the east, just 7 miles and Sidmouth to the west just under 11 miles.

We believe the property to have been built around 1925 and extended in later years. Initial work was carried out in 1989 when the property was virtually gutted, including having the roof re-laid (re-felted and battened). In more recent years a further programme of upgrading has been carried out to include the following:- loft conversion to provide 2 additional bedrooms and cloakroom (2001/2), new kitchen including flooring (approx. 2010), two new bathrooms (2013), new boiler installed in October 2018 (3 years remaining on warranty). Woodburner installed in 2017.
