The West Country region
We are 2.5 miles from the coastal town of Seaton, which is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and three miles from the charming fishing village of Beer. In Beer, you can go out mackerel fishing for the afternoon or, if your sea legs aren't that good, visit Pecorama and travel on the Beer Heights Light Railway from which you can enjoy magnificent views of Beer and Lyme Bay.
There are many beautiful walks in the area, including The East Devon Way and the South West Coastal Path. You can also hire bikes in Colyton and cycle through the beautiful East Devon countryside on several beautiful cycle routes.
There are a wealth of things to see and do in the beautiful countryside around The Old Rectory. Colyford has two pubs: The White Hart and The Wheelwright, a post office, general store and a fabulous local butcher.
The medieval town of Colyton is a mile away, nestling in the Axe Valley where the rivers Axe and Coly meet. It is known as 'Devon's Most Rebellious Town' due to the part it played in the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685.
