There is a superb riverside walk along the River Coly which starts opposite the White Hart Inn.

The coast at Seaton with Esplanade and spectacular mile long beach is just over a 5-minute drive. This is an exciting area for exploring the beaches and coves of the beautiful Lyme Bay coast. Also visit the Seaton Jurassic Centre and the Colyford and Seaton Wetlands made up of four Local Nature Reserves with viewing hide. Spectacular cliff top walks from Seaton to the pretty fishing village of Beer and onto the seaside village of Branscombe, surrounded by National Trust land.

The popular coastal towns of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis are a 20-minute drive away.

Nearby is the market town of Axminster, famous for its carpets and the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall ‘River Cottage Canteen’. Axminster also holds a Thursday weekly street market.

A visit to Colyford is an ideal way of exploring this ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ and all the region has to offer.


Guest Reviews

Great communication with the cottage agency and the owner. The cottage is neat, very clean and C19 secure. Large bathroom, small en suite. Comfortable lounge and everything we needed in the large dining kitchen. Great position, 2 pubs in easy walking distance as was the post office/general store and the butchers. Large tesco in Seaton, about 5 minutes drive away. Lovely area, lots of interesting places and walks if you are fit enough. Tramway is cute and has a stop in the village next to one if the pubs, worth a trip.
