An attractive Devon cottage, set in a small row of three, in the heart of this charming, pretty village of Colyford, near Seaton and between the coastal towns of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. An excellent and convenient holiday location situated near the quaint village store/post office selling local produce with excellent butchers offering locally sourced meat. There are two popular pubs in the village selling tasty food and one hotel/restaurant. The well-known Seaton Electric Tramway which can be boarded at Colyford, runs along the stunning Axe Valley between the seaside town of Seaton and the small historic town of Colyton. 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 five 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 twenty 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.

Superb cottage in a great location. We had a lovely peaceful week and the location is ideal for exploring the area. The basin in the kitchen were much appreciated as was the bottle of wine. We look forward to a second visit.
Top Tips – go to Sidmouth by bus to avoid the parking issues. Use the park and ride to visit Lyme Regis. Lee , Sophie and Pia ( aged 4)

We echo all of the previous comments. Everything was in lovely condition and to a high standard. Weather was great and we walked miles of the coastal path.
The hotel type additions of shampoo and soap gave us a feeling of luxury.
Thanks for the tea and coffee- a thoughtful touch.

We’ve had a wonderful week at Elm Cottage. It’s cosy, very homely and beautifully kept. Spotlessly clean.
Lovely bathroom and bright new kitchen. Colyford is such a nice place to stay being near to so many places of interest. Thank you for the bottle of wine – very nice touch and appreciated. We look forward to visiting Elm Cottage again, possibly later this year. Even the weather was kind to us and no complaints at all
