Perfectly situated on a quiet street in the centre of the pretty town of Colyton, White Hart Cottage is a lovingly restored Devonshire cottage, furnished with gorgeous contemporary styling whilst retaining beautiful traditional features.
Colyton is a quaint town with pretty, traditional thatched cottages nestled on the banks of the river Axe surrounded by beautiful countryside. A holiday here places everything you need on your doorstep including gorgeous walks, places to eat and a tram which will take you through two nature reserves to the Devon coast at Seaton, a mere three miles away. White Hart Cottage is a delight and ideal for families looking for a holiday to remember or a group of friends seeking a Devon escape, and you can even bring your four-legged friend along too!
Situated in the old quarter of town, White Hart Cottage really is a special home and from the moment you step over the threshold you will see why. The ground floor is fabulous, with wooden floors throughout and a restored feature fireplace with a gorgeous wood-burner for cooler months. Stylishly furnished, two super comfy sofas invite you to relax after a busy day and enjoy a movie on the Smart TV or enjoy the endless channels available via the SKY package. Head through to the dining-area where everyone can gather around the table to enjoy a holiday meal, or perhaps play a board game. The super sleek kitchen flows seamlessly from the dining-area and here you'll find everything you need to create a culinary delight, with natural light flooding in through the Velux windows. There's even a dishwasher so no arguing about the washing up here! There's a handy utility-room with a washing machine and a cloakroom with a WC and wash-basin completes the ground floor accommodation.
Climb the stairs to the first floor and three beautiful bedrooms await, all dressed with gorgeous linens. Bedroom one is a lovely double-bedded room with a pretty bedstead and decorated in subtle grey tones. Bedroom two is as pretty as a picture with a comfy king-size bed and walk-in dressing area. Bedroom 3 is a single bedded room and either an adult or a child will feel at home in this cosy room. The family bathroom on this floor is super stylish with a gorgeous bath and rainfall shower over (please mind the step down into the bathroom).
Outside White Hart Cottage a cute courtyard provides the perfect backdrop for morning coffee, afternoon tea or dinner from the gas barbecue. With hanging creepers, pretty plants, a chimenea and bistro table and chairs this beautiful setting is reminiscent of holidays in the Mediterranean. This fabulous, enclosed space also offers a great area for storing bikes and drying wetsuits.
White Hart Cottage is a fabulous contemporary holiday retreat where you will want to stay for ever.
East Devon is renowned for lush countryside, scenic coastal vistas and charming fishing villages, all close to the very beautiful Jurassic Coast. The pretty town of Colyton has a great selection of local shops, cafes and a pub but if you decide to travel further afield, you don't have to go far to discover some Devon delights. The lovely market town of Axminster is a mere seven miles away, home to the famous River Cottage and a great selection of cafes and eclectic shops.
The Dorset border is a hop, skip and a jump away and Lyme Regis should definitely be on your list of places to go. The iconic Cobb is quite a spectacle and there are two lovely beaches to choose from alongside a huge choice of eateries and ice-cream parlours. Back to Colyton and why not catch the tram which travels to Colyford and Seaton, a great way to spend the day at the seaside without taking the car! Walkers will love the pretty footpaths which run along the river valley and your dog will love it here too.
However you plan to spend your precious holiday days, returning to White Hart Cottage will be a delight.
