Sceat Cottage (1246)

5.9 miles W of Lyme Regis | Sleeps 7 + cot | Price Band N (£522 - £1401)

Just outside the pretty east Devon town of Colyton, a very short drive from the east Devon and Dorset Jurassic Coast and beaches, family-friendly Sceat Cottage enjoys panoramic views of the Axe valley. This contemporary, semi-detached cottage (in a row of three) is approached by a sloping brick path across the front lawn. There is an open plan kitchen/diner, three steps up to the main sitting-room and French windows onto the patio. Also on the ground floor are the shower-room, a double bedroom and a cosy ‘snug’ with a wood-burner. Upstairs are three further bedrooms, one en suite, and the family bathroom. As well as the front patio there is an enclosed gravelled rear terrace which is ideal for barbecues.

Lyme Regis, Honiton and the fabulous Jurassic coastline and beaches at Charmouth and Beer are nearby. Fans of the crime drama ‘Broadchurch’ might recognise West Bay, where filming for the series took place. For those with a culinary interest, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage is a short drive away and there is also his local produce store and canteen in Axminster. For history lovers, the National Trust’s Shute Barton (limited opening) is just down the road.
