The White Cottage is one of Colyton's finest old buildings (Grade II Listed) with extensive 7 Bedroomed character accommodation.

It has been a much loved family home for many years with 3 Bedrooms allocated for Bed and Breakfast. This small business is easily run and last year produced an income of around £50,000. It has excellent ratings on TripAdvisor, and Visit for further information.

The property has been well cared for by the present owners who have endeavoured to provide good quality modern amenities whilst retaining the period features.

It is situated in the heart of the picturesque country town of Colyton which benefits from a host of pretty cottages and fine period homes. The town is surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside and is well away from busy main 'A' roads - a delightful place to live and enjoy the thriving local community. There are local independent shops and 3 pubs, town hall, doctors surgery, excellent primary school, playing fields etc. and also close by is the renowned Colyton Grammar School.

The coast at Seaton is about 3 miles to the south, Lyme Regis approximately 8 miles away and there is a main line railway station (Exeter to Waterloo line) within a short drive at Axminster.
