  • "Being an older house the garden door was very difficult to open ,once opened we left it unlocked as there was an inner door that we could lock and the garden was enclosed."

    Different heating from what we have at home but when we worked out how to use it it was warm .

  • "This is a lovely cottage with excellent facilities."

    Although realistically there’s no parking , the public car park is only a hundred yards away and for EV cars has fast charging points . We used the Kingfisher Pub which is 75 yards away for food and drink and had a very warm welcome.

  • "Heron Cottage was absolutely perfect."

    It had everything we needed. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is located in Colyton town centre and has all the amenities. Shops, bistro, pubs, bakery, butcher and restaurants. We loved the cottage and the friendly community of Colyton. Highly recommend, we will definitely be returning.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, it is so great to hear that the owners have catered to your needs. Although Colyton is a small town, it has superb facilities to enjoy. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner
