Sceat Cottage is one of a small group of barn conversions in a glorious hilltop position.
This is the open plan dining and kitchen-area. The steps lead up to the main sitting-room and from there French windows to the patio.
The cosy sitting-room has comfortable sofas and a wood-burner making this cottage a great choice out-of-season.
Pretty bedroom 1, the downstairs double bedroom with a shower-room right next door. This room looks out over the enclosed rear courtyard.
The views from this cottage are truly stunning, a great place for a barbecue.
The gorgeous unobstructed view directly in front of the cottage.
A couple of steps lead up to the main sitting-room which opens out onto the patio, and that fabulous view.
The kitchen is in one corner of the open plan living space and is very well-equipped. The window looks out onto the enclosed rear courtyard.
The shower-room doubles as a useful utility-room.
Breakfast in bed? Why not, you are on holiday!
Bedroom 2, the en suite double bedroom. This bedroom has amazing views right out across the valley to the front of the cottage.
Another view of bedroom 2.
The en suite shower-room for bedroom 2.
This is the twin room, bedroom 3 at the front of the cottage, perfect for either adults or children.
The bedrooms are a delight.
The family bathroom on the first floor.
The single bedroom (Bedroom 4) is a really good size.
The first floor landing adds to the feeling of space.
The front door is a stable-door that allows you to appreciate the surrounding countryside.
Where better for afternoon tea; this terrace is at the front of the cottage, there is another seating-area at the rear of the cottage.
The sheltered rear courtyard.
So many glorious walks and adventures to embark on. Your four-legged friend wont want to return home.
The picturesque village of Colyton is only moments away and can be reached on foot.
Coylton is such a charming village, perfect for picking up something local and fresh for supper.
This little tram leaves Colyton station and runs down beside the river Axe to Seaton and the Jurassic Visitor Centre.
The bustling town of Lyme Regis is a short drive from Sceat Cottage.
Seaton is the nearest beach, just a short drive away from the cottage. There is a long promenade and all the usual seaside shops that children will love to spend their pocket money in.
A little way over the border into Dorset, you will find the quirky market town of Bridport and West Bay, filming scene for 'Broadchurch'.
Sceat Cottage is above the Axe Valley, with a wonderful bird sanctuary and even a tram ride to make the most of it.

Lovely cottage, very well equipped, and in a lovely location quite close to local amenities.

Lovely cottage! Rural situation, nice and quiet with beautiful views! Well equipped and comfortable! Recommended for a family holiday with various seaside towns only a short/medium drive away! Had a great week with our kids and grandchildren, didn't want to leave!!...

A lovely, spacious cottage, very well equipped. Within easy reach of the coast, if you can tear yourself away from the views from the cottage!

A lovely large cottage. Beautiful views, very quiet (apart from a rather enthusiastic cockeral). Everything you could need is provided. We loved having 2 sitting rooms for TV preferences. I almost wish it had been colder so we could light the fire. It's in a perfect location for a quiet break. A quick drive into Colyton for small shops etc., a bit further into Seaton....
