Hollie Cottage is one of three attractive holiday properties, converted from a former dairy with a light and airy feel to the property and set in the pretty village of Colyford, close to the Jurassic coast. Colyford village is about a mile and a half from the seafront at Seaton and the pretty harbour at Axmouth and midway along the main coast road between the lovely seaside resorts of Lyme Regis and Sidmouth. The cottage has been sympathetically restored with high oak-beamed ceilings and an attractive oak floor. The open-plan living area makes excellent use of the space with a large comfortable sofa, dining table and a modern fitted kitchen. The separate bedroom has a King size bed and a luxury en-suite shower room.

The village includes a small grocery store, an excellent butcher, a cycle shop and cafe. There are also a couple of traditional pubs, both serving food. This is a good base for couples to explore the wonderful area of West Dorset and East Devon. The popular Seaton Tramway, running along the beautiful Axe estuary, stops at Colyford providing the perfect way to sit back and discover the local area.
