Description

VisitEngland 4 stars

Knowles - The ultimate family home.

Superb detached Victorian country house, built in 1890, full of character and many original features, set back from the Colyford to Colyton road occupying an elevated position in over an acre of beautiful garden. The small friendly town of Colyton just a 5 minute walk away, steeped in history dating back to Saxon times, between Lyme Regis and Sidmouth with quaint shops, art galleries, antiques, a garden shop, inns serving real ales and eateries line the streets. Tennis courts are almost opposite and golf courses at Seaton, Lyme Regis and Honiton.

Scenic walks along the River Coly and the countryside lanes. The electric tram runs along the Axe Valley passing the Nature Reserve to the coast at Seaton 3 miles away. Colyford, 2-minute drive away, has a PO/Stores and butchers, 2 inns, a restaurant, Nature Reserve and Holyford Woods.

The coastal town of Lyme Regis is an easy 15 minute drive over the Devon border

The coastal town of Lyme Regis is an easy 15 minute drive over the Devon border into Dorset, offering a wide variety of activities - fossil hunting, fishing trips and cliff top walks along the Jurassic Coast, including the Undercliff Nature Reserve to Seaton.

A 10 minute drive to the picturesque fishing village of Beer and Branscombe. The seaside town of Sidmouth with spectacular beach is only a 15 minute drive with an excellent selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, indoor swimming pool and cinema.

The small thriving market town of Axminster, famous for the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'River Cottage Canteen', shops and weekly street market is also a 15-minute drive away.

A wonderful house to spend a holiday in Devon with so much to see and do, family re-unions and celebrations or for corporate get togethers in and around Lyme Bay on the Jurassic Coast.
