Set in a truly idyllic location not far from the picturesque harbour town of Axmouth and Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast, staying in what used to be the village Post Office is nothing more than a treat.
A traditional cottage perfect for families, or couples looking for a self-catering cottage break away its a home away from home.
The Old Post House oozes a magical charm all of its own and is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding countryside and charming villages nearby. Sitting on the Devon/Dorset border, this self-catering cottage is just a hop, skip and a jump to the beach; sandwiched between the gorgeous Lyme Regis and the historical Sidmouth. A short walk to the village pub offers the a perfect spot for real ale and a spot of lunch after a countryside walk!

The clean and fresh decor mixed in with old features. It was a great spot near lovely pubs and walks and so close to the beach. Perfect.
The walk in the folder is lovely with great views, but starts off with a very steep hill so be warned! Tram journey in Seaton is lovely with amazing scenery as well, make sure you eat before if you arrive at Colyton after 2 as nowhere does food between 2 and 6pm. All in all a great holiday with memories we will cherish forever. Thank you.
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The property was well-equipped and had a nice homely feel. We enjoyed the garden when the weather was nice. There was plenty of space for all 5 of us.
Good size kitchen and open plan arrangement on the ground floor. Lovely garden for when the sun was shining. We were lucky – it was! Parking available out front on the road (can be narrow) and also a very useful, large dedicated parking space at the rear of the property. Communication with the hosts was excellent. A word of warning – this is a characterful, wooden beamed property. We were warned many times about the low ceilings on the ground floor – as mentioned all communication was excellent – but I guarantee you will hit your head at some point, be it jumping up from the sofa a little enthusiastically or if you happen to be approaching 6ft in height! However, I’ve no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property for a fab self-accommodation getaway.
