Colcombe Farm Holiday Home

1 of 20
Caravan/mobile home -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Colyton, Devon, England
AT EAST DEVON, between Lyme Regis and Sidmouth, we are a half a mile outside of Colyton, a quarter of a mile off the road (along a concrete private road). Colcombe Abbey Farm is a small family run farm, we are predominantly dairy (you are welcome to come and see the cows being milked and see the baby calves) with a 120 Friesian herd, a small number of beef animals , 2 beautiful horses and a dartmoor pony. We have two dogs, both spaniels. . There are a number of free range chickens running around, 1 goose called Mr Grumpy, Guinea fowl and you can always hear the birds singing.

The three bedroom mobile home sits on a large grass paddock (200ft x 200ft) and just below there is a 2 bedroom caravan for let (you can see this one in the photos). It is fully equipped, inclusive and has a full valet on change over day. Just outside there...

We’re glad you had a good time. I’m sorry you had trouble with WiFi, it can be temperamental.

We had a 9 night stay in the 2 bedroom caravan. We arrived to a warm welcome by the lovely owners with a food basket of essential coffee/tea and cookies. Accommodation was clean and had what you would need. With parking next to the caravan....More
