Location description from owner

The England 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.

Colyford

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.

“Beautiful house and great location.”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2014

I stayed here with my extended family and we all loved it. The house and garden are immaculately kept and the masses of space ensured that we did not get under each other's feet. There is plenty to see and do within a short drive ofthe house. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic Family Get Together at a First Class Venue”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2014

What a wonderful property!! Super high quality, excellent eye for detail and a fantastic space to catch up with the family. Bathrooms and kitchen were very impressive and the two master bedrooms to die for! My 8 brothers and sisters and my parents who are in their late 80's spent a week in the wonderful Rectory and we felt like we were being spoilt from the moment we walked in. The kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of and the wood burners just gave that extra special feel. The grounds are also wonderful, and I'm sure they would come into their own in the summer months. Location is fantastic, so many places easily accessible, and even the small village shop had a good selection. Highly recommended, we certainly hope to come back one day soon. Thanks Alison

“Relaxing and very enjoyable weekend break”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

The house is tasteful, comfortable, spotless and finished to a very high standard and quality. Plenty of space inside and outside to enjoy and relax and lots of things to do in the surrounding area. Thoroughly recommended.

“Stunning and immaculate six bedroom house”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

A gravel drive lead up to a stunning house set in a walled garden. The house was 'wow'. The feature hallway lead into a well equipped stunning kitchen, diner and lounge. Additional two reception rooms, ideal with a party of 11, allowing each age group to either play games or watch different televisions. The bedrooms were each decorated to a very high standard. Beds were large and very comfortable. Bathrooms were large with 'out of this world' baths and showers Ideal location to visit south east Devon coastline and close enough even to visit the Eden Project. Would certainly rent the property again.

“Fabulously spacious & comfortable; beautifully decorated; everything top quality.”

Reviewed 31 May 2014

A perfect place for a special family gathering. Ten of us (3 generations ) enjoyed the beautiful interiors and gardens. A very spacious and beautifully furnished house with everything of high quality and extremely well equipped. Colyford is a very convenient location for Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and the Jursassic Coast with lots to do with young children - particular favourites being the tram to Seaton and fabulous Pecorama with the small trains, lovely gardens and indoor soft play. We can highly recommend The Old Rectory as a great place to stay. The Turner family

We had a fantastic weekend; the Old Rectory is so warm, cosy and comfortable with superb facilities, light and airy with enough space for everyone, I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect venue to celebrate my birthday.

“Superb! Superb! Superb!”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2014

My husband and I took the family away to celebrate our 50th (Golden) Wedding Anniversary at 'The Old Rectory' I spotted it whilst "Surfing" the net for a suitable place in this part of Devon. On seeing the details for the Rectory And local area I was captivated immediately and made a booking for a long weekend. Well! what a place, it was the most wonderful house we have ever stayed in, beautifully decorated and furnished, light and airy rooms. The fittings and fixtures, equipment, linen, towels were all top class and quality. Nothing has been overlooked by the owners Alison and Matt Waters, well done you two! On arrival Alison had left a welcome pack of essentials, tea/coffee/milk/etc. Also, knowing it was a family celebration she left a wonderful sponge cake in the kitchen for us and 2 bottles of Champagne in the fridge..... A lovely gesture that was much appreciated by all. We had a fantastic stay, a great party on the day in wonderful surroundings and to cap it all the weather was fantastic. My husband and I would recommend the Old Rectory for a holiday to anyone, especially a large group or family as the house is perfect in every way.

“The Old Rectory: just perfect in every way!”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2014

We were a group of ten friends down in Devon for the weekend for The Grizzly (a cross country running event). The Old Rectory was a perfect place to stay; comfortable bedrooms and sitting rooms, log burning stoves and the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen. We're hoping to return next year!

“5 star + property, everything you could possibly want, excellent”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2014

Having had an awful journey due to adverse weather, we opened the front door to a homely and inviting house. The kitchen is fit for a top class chef with every implement you could wish for. The lounges enable different activities to take place, ie, television and games thus pleasing all members of the family. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated to a high standard and the beds very comfortable. All the bathrooms have very high quality fittings. The dining room and orangery are very light and spacious. The information about local attractions and restaurants together with directions to the property are very comprehensive. Totally recommended
