This lovely cottage has been thoughtfully extended in the past and has a fabulous walled garden. The cottage is attached on one side and situated in a tucked away position close to the centre of the town, just a few hundred yards away from shops and facilities. Internally, the accommodation is well presented and comprises two double bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, entrance hall, welcoming lounge with fireplace, utility room with ground floor cloakroom and a kitchen overlooking and leading to the walled garden. At the side of the house is a small parking space for one car and a gate leading into the delightful garden, which is a good size for a town centre property.

Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, butcher`s, baker, convenience stores, fish and chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services. The beautiful Norman Church is the centre point of the town, which is most famous for the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion. On the edge of the town is the Seaton tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary, linking Colyton and Seaton, which is very popular with tourists. The nearby Colyton Grammar School is another draw for the area as the school consistently appears in the top 10 Grammar Schools in the country. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just over 2.5 miles away, with the seaside resort of Lyme Regis to the east, just 7 miles and Sidmouth to the west just under 11 miles.

The property is approached via a small lane off King Street, which leads to this and several other properties. Beside the house is a tarmac driveway which belongs to the cottage but also provides access to a garage belonging to a neighbour, hence must be left clear for access. There is a small parking space beyond the driveway for The Old Smithy along with a gate leading into the back garden.

The garden is delightful! Being walled on all sides, the garden enjoys a good deal of privacy. French doors from the kitchen lead onto a paved pathway and patio seating area as well as the gate to the parking space. The remainder of the garden is at a slightly higher level and comprises a good area of lawn with deep planting beds, which provide an abundance of colour and variety. The higher level is retained by an attractive stone wall and easy rising steps lead up on two sides. Towards the back are two garden sheds, beside which is a small fruit garden. Closer to the house is a log store.

All mains services are connected. Water is metered.
