April Cottage in Colyton. Jurassic Coast 3 miles. Pubs & shops 3 min walk. WiFi

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
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 WiFi and on road parking outside the cottage.

Brilliant property location wise and size.

  • 5 of 5

One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in!! plenty of room for 4 adults and the 2 kids and could have fitted more in with a blow up bed. The location of the property is brilliant with everything in the village you would need. Nice pubs restaurants and shops. The tram stop is only a 10 minute walk away and is a brilliant day out to seaton. Everywhere is a short drive away and would really recommend this for all ages. We will be returning!!!!

A lovely characterful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cottage which was not only clean and comfortable but very homely. It had everything we required for an enjoyable holiday. At the back of the cottage is a lovely, secluded garden. Unfortunately, though, we didn't get an opportunity to use it due to the weather not being warm enough. The location was perfect: tucked away in a quiet street in a pretty village, yet within a few minutes' walk to shops, pubs etc. It is also ideally located for visiting the many places of interest in East Devon.

My daughter left her mobile phone at the cottage and Paul, the owner, not only contacted me within an hour or so of us leaving but went to the trouble of arranging to have it posted to us. We were most grateful - thank you Paul!

Al in all a great holiday!

Mrs F-C and family

Beautiful Thatched Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I have recently returned from April Cottage after a wonderful holiday with my sons family which included two boys. It is situated in a prime position in the village with shops, restaurants and village pubs, which do excellent meals. There are plenty places to visit on the coast line which are not far to travel to. There is a little tram which is a short walk from the cottage which takes you to Seaton and from there you can do the coastal walked to Beer, a wonderful place not to be missed. The cottage is very well presented with everything possible that you would require. The owners have put lots of thought into the decoration and requirements for a rental property. It was my third time there and I cannot wait to visit April Cottage again. I would recommend this wonderful thatched, cosy cottage to my friends. You will not be disappointed.
