The Old Bakehouse B&B, Colyton

The Old Bakehouse is a Grade II listed 400 year old former Bakehouse which has been tastefully restored by the proprietor, Frances.

You will find us situated centrally but in a peaceful area of the medieval town of Colyton, nestled in the Axe Valley, East Devon. The town is situated less than 5 miles from Lyme Regis and 9 miles from the Regency Coastal town of Sidmouth.

The area has proved itself to be excellent base, sitting on the border of three counties East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.

Exeter, Torquay, Dartmoor and South Devon are all within an hours drive to the West, with Dorchester and the Dorset coast to the East.



The Old Bakehouse in Colyton.

Colyton is three miles from Seaton, a gateway town to the Natural World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and from quaint villages such as Beer and Branscombe.

Colyton itself, has many historic features i.e. the Church of St. Andrews with it’s “lantern tower” – one of only three in the country and the only remaining working tannery in England.

Visitors who discover this quaint, picturesque area find it relaxing, intriguing and welcoming and most seem to return time after time.
