In every respect 3 The Old Antiques Centre is a truly diamond property . The accommodation , furnishings and standard of cleanliness is unquestionably superlative. It’s location in the lovely village of Colyton is ideal with shops , pubs and other services readily available . We found the local people friendly and engaging and with the wonderful church bells on Sunday as a bonus we found our perfect place !!

Mr Harvey April 2022
We had a great time in no3 the old antiques centre. The cottage is so comfortable and well equipped. It's in a great location for visiting all that Devon and Dorset has to offer.Handy shops in the village, general store ,fish and chip shop and pizza parlour. The kingfisher pub is a must for Sunday lunch. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Mrs Ruecroft March 2022
We finally made our return visit to No3 after being cancelled due to covid !!! We liked it again so much that we have booked to go back again, a superb holiday home, thank you.
Mrs Williams March 2022
Pleasantly surprised on how large the house was and how well equipped . Just about everything was catered for. Great shower and bathrooms although a bit snug when you are 6ft 4. Beautifully quiet and a great location with a welcoming local pub The Kingfisher and a great local butcher. More than we could have hoped for.
Mr Arden February 2022
Great location in centre of village and very quiet.
Mrs Ward October 2021
This is such a delightfully spacious cottage and if you go as a group of six there is so much space for
everyone... it's quite amazing. Nothing has been left to chance either ... it's spotlessly clean, everything is quality, and you can really relax in this home from home because the owners have thought of everything!
In a word .... delightful!
Mrs Hernandez August 2021
The cottage is lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. It is well equipped with lots of books, games, DVD's and a comfy sofa! The kitchen is also really well equipped, a real home from home. The village of Colyton is really nice with everything in walking distance. A short drive to the coast of Beer and Sidmouth and the Tram ride from Colyton to Seaton is a must. Would highly recommend and hope to return in the future.
Mrs Hawley July 2021
We have stayed in this cottage six times now, so I think that says a lot. It is comfortable , clean and very well equipped . There is parking on site for two cars which is something to consider when you are holidaying with children and a dog .
Mrs Bugg June 2021
Lovely spacious property situated in the quaint village of Colyton. We enjoyed the tram ride to Seaton, the Riverside walk in Colyton, a fossil walk at Lyme Regis, drinking a pint of beer at Beer and walks along the coast path. The cottage is in a quiet location but within a few minutes walk from pubs and local shops.
Mrs Offer June 2021
Really enjoyed our week stay at the old antiques centre. Great location and very comfortable accommodation. We will definitely return!
Ms Shippam April 2021
A bright and spacious house, comfortable and very well equipped. Colyton is a nice village with walks along the river. Lots of lovely areas close by - Lyme Regis and Beer were super. Hope to return
Mrs Burton October 2020
Charming, most comfortable and spacious for a relaxing stay.
Mrs Martin September 2020
No 3 The Old Antiques Centre is a true gem , with everything you need for the most relaxing and comfortable stay. The minute you walk in you will feel at home.

We have had our fifth (I think ) holiday in No 3 so that must say something. The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and clean. The location suits us, and our grandchildren, who love shopping in Sidmouth and Lyme Regis , and the beach at Beer. We love browsing in the Vintage Shed and some of the other antique shops nearby.
Mr Mitchell July 2020
Great place with everything and more you’ll need. Will definitely be back.
Mrs Pack November 2019

Ms Noll October 2019
This holiday home is truly a home! What a stunning property, extremely cosy, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location is fantastic, especially as dog-owners we liked that we were in the country-side, but had amenities on the doorstep and were close to wonderful villages and tourist hotspots. Would definitely come back and book again!
Mrs Otton September 2019
Just an ideal cottage in an ideal location, absolutely loved it and hope to return soon.
Mrs Young August 2019

Mr Edwards May 2019
We have stayed in a lot of cottages and houses over the years but i think i can easily say that no. 3 is the best Well situated, very clean and enough room to hold a swinging cat (many in fact). Very well equipped kitchen and enough games, books, dvd's to suit all needs. Great eateries in the area and plenty of beaches to choose from. I would certainly recommend no. 3.
Mrs Borras April 2019

Mr Moon April 2018
My sister, brother and I were all very impressed by all the aspects of this accommodation - the best cottage/apartment any of us have stayed in.
Mrs Gerard March 2018
The location suited us as although the house has no "views", the view of the church tower with its cockrell and bells was a hit with the children! It is well located for exploring the area.The space and layout on both floors is a real treat when there are 6 sharing the space. The property is immaculate with lots of welcoming touches.
Mrs Jones March 2018
A beautifully presented, immaculately kept holiday home that is very comfortable. A joy to be pet friendly too so our dear Rosie could enjoy a holiday with us. I refuse to stay anywhere worse than my own home which is a challenge. No worries here though! Congratulations to the wonderful housekeeper.
Mrs Rowe December 2017
An exceptional spacious, comfortable cottage in an ideal position. Liked everything, we have stayed in lots of cottages and this was the best.

Ms Whiley July 2017
We've taken quite a few British cottage holidays over the last 15 years, this was the best equipped place we've stayed in. Everything we could've needed provided plus added extras like a good book selection, board games and DVDs! Just lovely. Spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated cottage. Loved the extra touches as per earlier comment. Excellent location for exploring the East Devon/West Dorset coast and surrounding area of outstanding natural beauty!
Mrs Pyatt June 2017

The photos of this cottage does not do it justice it's a real home from home
Mrs Hawley August 2016
We have had a lovely holiday, our oldest granddaughter (aged 71/2) says it has been " the best holiday ever ". There is so much to do in the area, from an afternoon in the 'Vintage Shed', and tea at Liddons Dairy to a wander around Beer or a trip to Lyme Regis.We took the walking tour of Colyton which was very interesting. The local shops are very convenient , and we enjoyed meals in the Kingfisher and the Wheelwrights Arms ( Colyford). Even the weather was kinder than we anticipated. All in all , a lovely house in a lovely location.
Mr Porteous August 2016
Perfect for a family of six, We had beautiful weather, but there was everything there if it had rained to amuse adults and teenagers. Excellent WiFi connection and great walks for the dog by the river and round the village. Loved the tram ride into Seaton. Easy access to Dorset and Devon.
Mrs Cameron June 2016
Liked everything! Decor, furniture, bedrooms, bathrooms, cleanliness, towels. It really is a home from home, everything you'll need, you'll find there. Kids (and big kids) will love the games room set up in the garage. I loved reading my book on the peaceful patio by the front door, with the evening sun on my face with a beautiful view of the church too.
It was a lovely touch finding a little welcome basket of a few teabags, coffee, sugar sachets etc, plus a pack of cookies and some milk in the fridge too! Whist we brought most things with us, we left the basket intact, but the cookies were great and the milk was very handy before we could get up to the shop (literally just up the road). I cannot praise the property enough. Please pass on my thanks to the owners for making this such a lovely place to stay. They have created this rental property with love and a great deal of care and attention to detail.
The location makes it perfect for travel both East or West along the Devon/Dorset coastline (the A3052 and the main road A35). We travelled as far as Weymouth and Portland (both really good places to explore) to the East, and down as far as Dartmouth to the West (beautiful at sunset!!). We also visited Beer, Seaton, West Bay, Lyme Regis, Charmouth (I found a fossil!!), Branscombe, Budleigh Salterton, Totnes and Paignton.
Mrs Barber May 2016

Mrs Carr March 2016
