Overview

About the property

Cottage in Colyton, Nr. Beer, South Devon, England - Dating from 1650, April Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed thatched cottage.

The cottage is centrally located within Colytons narrow streets just a few minutes walk of all amenities including local shops, pubs, restaurants, takeaway, children’s playground, tram station, tennis courts etc.. and less than 3 miles from the beach. Colyton is a small town in East Devon within a 15 minutes drive from Seaton, Beer, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and Axminster. It’s a small unspoilt town, grouped around the handsome St Andrews Church, within a conservation area in the beautiful verdant Axe Valley with the River Coly flowing through its heart. It is surrounded by lovely East Devon countryside, which is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Axe estuary is a delight for birdwatchers with 6 hides and 3½ miles of cycleways and there are lovely rural walks, great for dog walking, right from the cottage front door. Colyton Tram Station is within walking distance and is great place to board the Seaton Tramway to Seaton with its beach and esplanade. Colyton is 10 minutes from Lyme Bay which is part of the Jurassic Coast, a Natural World Heritage Site noted for its geology, dramatic cliffs and fossils. Windsurfing, golf, horse riding and National Trust properties are close by. Further afield the National Maritime Aquarium and the Eden Project make a lovely day out.

Free strong reliable WiFi and on road parking outside the cottage.

A lovely cottage with almost everything you'll need in a friendly small town close to the sea.

  • 4 of 5

The property is well appointed, cosy and comfortable and within 2 minutes walk for all your needs.

Three pubs, all friendly. The Kingfisher became our local with good basic food. There are plenty of walks in and around Colyton which we took advantage of. All in all a very pleasant stay.

A gem of a cottage in the heart of a charming village spacious and well equipped cosy and light.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderer Chritmas in April cottage it was a huge decision for us to leave our family behind and have a quiet Chritmas just the two of us. The cottage is full of character it was lovely to find a christmas tree and lights had been put up. The lounge was very comfortable with plenty of room to stretch out the dining room table was well used.

The beautiful enclosed garden was perfect for our two jacks to enjoy. The covered areas was much appreciated as we had a lot of rain. The kitchen was well equipped and I enjoyed cooking everyday the oven and hob in particular were very good. Colyton is a lovely village we went to the nativity at St Andrews which was wonderful. I would recommend the butchers great turkey also enjoyed a visit and coffe at the dog friendly garden shop.

Outside holds perfect dog walking you have great walks on the flat or lots if hills if feeling energetic. We enjoyed a trip to the donkey sanctuary and adopted a donkey and had a lovely trip to delightful Beer on the way home where we found a lovely pub with a real fire. However if we stayed in we had dvds books and games in abundance.

The owner Paul was helpful and accommodating from the time of booking and I can only apologise for the mishap with the duvet. Thankyou Paul for sharing your lovely home with us. Perfect Christmas. Carol Simon Mayze and Ronnie We would love to return and would recommend April cottage to both families and couples.

Well equipped and very comfortable with plenty of space in the cottage. We had a great time as it was very easy to get to other places and also had the bonus of seeing the carnival on our first night.

Thatched heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent one week in April Cottage, a delightful thatched three bedroom property characterised by its uneven floors, 'mind your head' doorways and picturesque cottage garden. Well placed centrally for the village of Colyton but within easy travel to many of East Devon's attractions we were pleased with our choice of holiday accomodation. Whilst retaining many traditional features the cottage has every conceivable modern appliance and the thoughtful owners have included many extras including a library of books and DVD's available for guest use.

The surrounding area is a walker's paradise and as such if you are looking for plenty of fresh air and undisturbed rest this is the place to cherish it! Our only concern with providing a true picture of this hidden gem is that everyone will want to visit and we may have trouble booking it for next year!

Thank you so much George and Judith for giving us the opportunity to sample your paradise!

Regards

Linda and Frank Seal

Warm welcoming cottage !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in ideal location. Everything very clean and well maintained. Paul the owner was thorough and professional from our initial enquiry to check out providing excellent information on the local area and facilities. Plenty of room for four plus dog. Local friendly butcher well worth a visit. Would recommend to all ages and would like to return in the summer so we can enjoy the garden. Thank you Paul !
