An absolutely charming and slightly quirky cottage situated right in the heart of the East Devon village of Colyford, within a short walk of an excellent local shop, butchers, pub, village hall and church. The cottage is well placed for getting to the coast at nearby Seaton/Axmouth, just 2 miles distant or Sidmouth to the west and Lyme Regis to the east are both within a short drive. The entrance to the cottage is through a picket gate over a small walled front garden. On entering, there is a spacious hallway with plenty of space for coats and shoes. A formal sitting room at the front of the house can double up as overflow sleeping space as there is a further reception room at the back of the house offering sitting and dining space and leading on to the kitchen, which has been attractively fitted in a country cottage style. A stable door opens onto the rear courtyard garden, which is walled and offers complete seclusion. A door from the courtyard allows rear access (across the neighbouring cottage) and a further door opens into a very useful out building, where there is plenty of space for bikes or canoes and storage.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a useful linen cupboard. The bathroom, which is on the ground floor has both bath and shower.
Being Grade II Listed, the property has single glazed windows with pretty Georgian sash windows to the front adding to the appeal of the cottage. There is central heating throughout, fired by a gas combi boiler. Furnishings and fittings available by separate negotiation. No onward chain.

Colyford village is situated along the Jurassic coast road, just inland from the beach at Seaton and the pretty Axmouth harbour as well as the Axe Estuary, which is a haven for wildfowl. The Seaton wetlands nature reserve and the Seaton to Colyton tram line are both nearby. Amenities in the village of Colyford include a Post Office & General Stores, a butcher's shop, two pubs, a church, a village hall and a leisure centre. Colyford is also home to the well regarded Colyton Grammar School. A larger range of facilities can be found at nearby Seaton, which is just over 1.5 miles away or Axminster, 6 miles to the north, where there is a mainline train service to London. The city of Exeter is approx. 23 miles.
