A delightful town centre cottage with surprisingly large accommodation set over three floors. The property also benefits from a side access with double doors, leading to a covered driveway which is ideal for bike storage etc (could take a very small car). Beyond this area is a courtyard garden with a number of small outbuildings and a large studio/hobby room as well as a lovely covered seating area. The accommodation comprises (from the ground up), lounge with multi-fuel stove, dining room, kitchen, three double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor, top floor master suite with bathroom, bedroom and study/dressing room. The cottage, being of some age has many endearing features and would suit anyone who loves the charm and character of older houses and wants the convenience of being able to walk to facilities.
Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, convenience stores, 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 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 and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east.
