Millstream, situated in pretty gardens, is an attractive, detached two bedroom bungalow offering comfortable, high quality accommodation for those seeking a relaxing holiday within a short walk of the local village and amenities. Located on the outskirts of the pretty East Devon village of Colyton, with its tearooms, shops and traditional pubs, this property is ideally situated for enjoying all that this lovely part of the English countryside has to offer. The light and airy lounge/dining room features patio doors leading out onto a spacious south-facing terrace which overlooks a babbling former millstream. The main bedroom has a Super king size bed (single duvets can be requested) and there is a second smaller single bedroom.
Please note: The close proximity of the stream makes this property unsuitable for children under 5 but 'babes-in-arms' are welcome.

The whole of the Jurassic coast (including Seaton, Beer and Sidmouth), now a World Heritage site, is within easy reach and the lovely West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis is only about 15 minutes away by car. For those that enjoy a culinary treat, celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage shop and restaurant are also only a few mintues drive away in the East Devon market town of Axminster.

A delightful and very comfortable cottage.
The sounds of the stream are wonderfully relaxing. The bungalow is ideally situated for easy access to East Devon and West Dorset.
We had a very enjoyable week, just one small point , No access to gas BBQ , as advertised although it was explained it had been damaged by a previous occupant.
Excellent cottage in a good area for days out
We had the pleasure to meet Mr Carthey on arival, such a pleasent gent maybe next time we wil meet Mrs Carthey. Every thing was so good, no it was exellent, we enjoyed our weeks holiday it is like a coast and country holiday. The bungalow is set a such a high standard that it is like home from home. Must return another year.
We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage sits in beautiful countryside, and ideally suited for walking and exploring East Devon.
A nice touch was a bottle of white wine, the only thing is we don't drink white wine so perhaps a small bottle of both white and red could have been nice. Not an area of Devon we have been to before so took a bit of getting to know but once we had found our way round very delightful.
Everything about it made it a great chilled holiday for us, we could not have asked for better, we will be back Millstream, beautiful place
We enjoyed our stay. Lovely property and lovely garden
Excellent property to which we fully intend to return next year.

This cottage is is ideal for us. Location is good, it is quiet and very comfortable.
perfect bungalow to unwind and still be able to visit many local places with no hassle.
We really liked Colyton as a place and as a base to explore the area.
