A very attractive and surprisingly large period cottage situated in the heart of the pretty and historic little town of Colyton in East Devon and just 2 miles inland from the Jurassic coast. Originally The White Hart Inn, with the main area of the cottage dating back some several hundred years; The pub was converted back to a private home around fifty years ago and then subsequently tastefully modernised with great care into two cottages. The well presented accommodation briefly comprises three good sized bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, large lounge with inglenook fireplace, large dining room, attractively fitted kitchen and utility room. Outside, there is a walled courtyard garden. The property was thoughtfully renovated in recent years and has many delightful features, as you would expect from a property of this age.
Colyton is a small town with a village feel offering a range of local facilities including health centre, library, convenience stores, bank, chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services. 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.
