Colhayne Cottages are a pair of charming holiday homes that are situated in the parish of Shute, which is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. They both enjoy easy access to the A35
(1/2 mile) and are positioned off a quiet no through road. The views from both cottages are stunning and far reaching, over the rolling fields and woodlands of the Axe valley. As well as providing a peaceful and beautiful setting, the valley slopes down to the river below and Umborne Brook is within walking distance of the cottages. An abundance of flora and fauna can be found here, including the occasional Kingfisher.
Many thatched inns and tea shops (offering Devon cream teas) can be found in the area, together with nearby National Trust property of Shute Baron and Sidmouth donkey sanctuary is within easy reach by car. The cathedral city of Exeter (with theatre, leisure center and shopping facilities) is approximately 30 minutes drive.
Lyme Regis, in the neighbouring county of Dorset , is just 8 miles away, with its famous Cobb harbour. It is also a well-known haunt for the fossil-hunter, and sea fishing, sailing and boat hire are all available.
The coastal resort town of Seaton, with its shingle beach, has shops, seaside entertainments and fascinating open-top tramcars of the Electric Tramway which runs beside the Axe estuary (itself a haven for bird-watchers). There are tennis courts too, as well as facilities for riding and an 18-hole golf course. Honiton is famous for its lace-making and interesting antique shops is only 5 miles away.
