The small thriving market town of Axminster, famous for the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall ‘River Cottage Kitchen and Deli’, shops and weekly street market is a 15-minute drive away.

A most convenient and relaxing location for exploring the delights of this pretty area.


What can we say? Such a lovely, cozy cottage, equipped with everything you could possibly need. The garden is beautiful and the dogs loved it. We didn’t have any problems with parking however this may be different further into the holiday season. Although, you could drop the least mobile outside, then go and park vehicle in nearby lane or even car park (5 minutes walk). Such a lovely cottage and excellent value for money. We will be coming back.

Mrs R,

A charming cottage with all mod cons, in a village bursting with charm and character. The large, dog friendly walled garden is an absolute bonus. The area is perfect for exploring the Jurassic coast. Highly recommended!

Miss C,

This was a last minute booking, very pleased with what we got, the cottage was excellent, lovely facilities, smart tv was a bonus , Colyton is a lovely village, we did have a couple of problems parking, one guy from up the road was insistent on parking right outside, However we managed, The kingfisher pub was great for excellent evening meals

Mr W,
