Holiday Rental House
Accommodation Daisy Cottage is a newly renovated 2 bedroom barn conversion. It is extremely well insulated keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter. The cottage faces south-west and so is in the sun for most of the day. The ground floor provides a light and airy open-plan living area with a fitted kitchen, dining table and a lounge area with cosy wood burner. Full height windows extend the living space, opening out onto a south-facing patio and graveled courtyard that provide the perfect suntrap from which to enjoy a morning cup of tea or al-fresco dining. The modern bathroom includes a shower over the bath and under floor heating. Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms with exposed beams and stripped wood floors, reflecting the character of the original building.

Daisy Cottage is a cosy little place that I have enjoyed staying at every time. With adequate cooking, sleeping and washing facilities, its great for a weekend trip away. Only issue is occasional flies coming in (but manageable) and wifi is useable but not great.

About the neighbourhood
Colyton is a small medieval country town nestling in the Axe Valley with the babbling River Coly flowing through its heart. When passing through you will feel impelled to stop, attracted by its wealth of tiny streets, interesting houses from medieval to modern and fascinating choice of shops, galleries and pubs. Colyton boasts one of the prettiest stations in East Devon with trams regularly departing to the Jurassic Coast town of Seaton, just three miles away along the stunning Axe Estuary. The countryside around is completely unspoilt and as you drive or walk around you will pass through small hamlets and villages such as Northleigh and Farway. Farms in these patrs are mainly Dairy, many of which are still family run and often date back hundreds of years. The Jurassic coast is close...
Getting around
Being a rural location, a car is recommended. If you do not have a car, it would be possible to get a taxi from either Honiton or Axminster station. You can buy Devon and Cornwall rover tickets for travel during your stay, but again you would need to take a taxi to the station. There is a regular bus service that passes along the A35 through Wilmington which is approximately a 1 mile walk. If you are on a walking holiday, then once you have arrived there are plenty of opportunities.
