A delightful and beautifully presented three bedroom detached cottage, situated along a small residential lane within a few hundred yards of the town. The accommodation comprises three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, two of the bedrooms having vaulted ceilings, a pretty sitting room with fireplace and multi-fuel stove, dining room/study and attractive kitchen. Unusually for such a position, the property benefits from driveway parking and a garage. In addition, there is a further useful outbuilding, making a great workshop or hobby space. The rear garden is very private with a small area of lawn, patio and additional seating areas. There is another little outbuilding, which is useful for garden storage. The cottage is fitted with gas central heating and double glazing. Being of some age and originally more than one dwelling, the property has thick walls with deep window sills and several chimney breasts (with just one now in use). This is a lovely character cottage which has been completely renovated in recent years.

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.
