Set in a quiet location, yet only 2 miles from the sea and close to many attractions, including Crealy Adventure Park.

Situated approximately 2 miles from the sea and nestling in the fold of a valley on the edge of Holyford Woods, these two holiday cottages are set in a very peaceful location within the grounds of the owners’ home, a Grade II listed farmhouse. The oldest part of the property, dating back to the late 15th century, is Crispin Cottage. Attached to the owners’ home, this east wing has a wealth of oak panelling, beams and other period features. The Stables forms the majority part of a converted Victorian coach house and is located opposite the farmhouse. The local woodland has an abundance of wildlife and offers some wonderful country walks literally on the doorstep. The historic town of Colyton, with the River Coly flowing through it, is a mile or so away. It has a variety of local shops, tea rooms and pubs, all offering good food. Nearby attractions include Seaton’s Tramway, the fishing village of Beer and its famous caves, the beach at Branscombe, the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth and Crealy Adventure Park a little further towards Exeter. The city is just over 20 miles away. River Cottage HQ and its cafe in Axminster are both only 6 miles away, as is the seaside resort of Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb harbour. It has an area of sandy beach and offers a variety of water sports, as well as a large number of restaurants, tea rooms, pubs and exclusive gift shops. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    This is a very special house and we had a wonderful week here. We particularly liked the original features in the house (wood panelling and fireplace), ensuite bathrooms and the location- feels like you are somewhere very remote (as it's very quiet and peaceful) but in actual fact you are only a few miles from the coast/town/activities. Great place, hope to stay again.

    Beautiful cottage in a really peaceful location. We enjoyed a relaxing fortnight at Crispin Cottage with our welcoming and friendly hosts. Located at the end of a narrow lane, Crispin Cottage is ideal for anyone seeking peace and quiet; I really enjoyed sitting outside with my breakfast, listening to the birds and soaking up the warm Devonshire sunshine, accompanied by the resident robin waiting for any leftovers. We felt as though we were living somewhere quite remote, but we were within 2 miles of the beach and many of the other attractions of both Devon and Dorset were within easy driving distance. Beautiful accommodation, beautiful cottage, idyllic location, highly recommended.
