Number 3 The Old Antiques Centre is in the heart of the small historic town of Colyton close to the beaches of the east Devon and west Dorset Jurassic Coast. This house has many qualities; a family-sized holiday home-from-home with a games-room, a grown-up base for short breaks just a short stroll from the local shops and friendly pubs, and a year-round dog-lovers destination with exhilarating beach or tranquil riverside walks on offer and two safely enclosed courtyard gardens. Set over two floors, this deceptively large property will amaze you. The living space includes a lovely dining-area, a deep L-shaped sofa in front of the wood-burner and a patio door to an inner courtyard.
One of just three properties created from what was originally an old antiques emporium, this lovely house has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard. The ground floor rooms flow easily one from another and you will enjoy the thoughtful extras such as the music centre, card-table, books, games and toys. Upstairs the three generous-sized bedrooms open onto a wide landing. Both the double bedrooms have luxurious king-sized beds, the master bedroom has a double-height beamed ceiling and a large en suite bathroom, and the second double bedroom is equally spacious. There is then a pretty twin bedroom and a family shower-room. The first of the two courtyard gardens has a lovely barbecue-area and access to the separate games-room. This is a lovely part of east Devon, close to the Dorset border with Lyme Regis just seven miles away. Colyton is situated in the Axe Valley and as the River Axe widens to meet the sea, there is a fabulous wild bird reserve. You can enjoy a special vantage point of the reserve, the river and the water meadows by taking the classic tram ride from Colyton to Seaton on the coast. Nearby is the market town of Axminster where you can visit the River Cottage Canteen. Honiton is also well worth a visit, with some lovely cafes to rest your feet after browsing in all the antiques shops for which it is famous. The popular coastal villages of Beer and Branscombe are also close by.
