The Colcombe Castle is situated right in the centre of the ancient town of Colyton overlooking the market place. Colyton is a charming town that nestles in the Exe Valley with beautifully preserved stone, thatched buildings and tiny streets that form a circular pattern surrounding the impressive St Andrews Church. The town is situated within the East Devon Authority area and is approximately 3 miles north of Seaton and 6 miles from Axminster. The area is famed for its Worldwide Hertiage Jurassic Coast and is an extremely popular place to visit throughout the year.
Colcombe Castle is a substantial detached Grade II listed 16th Century freehold property with an enviable location right in the centre of the town. This substantial building forms an 'island unit' in the centre of the market place and is arranged over 3 storeys together with extensive basement areas with white washed stone elevations under a pitched roof. The buildings' name came from the Colcombe Castle, situated approximately half a mile to the north of the town which was a beautiful castle, now demolished, and a former seat of the Courtenay family, historic Earls of Devon. The Colcombe Castle Inn has been in the same family for over 4 decades and has always been a popular hostelry particularly given its unique location in the town centre. The business now trades quietly although offers huge potential for a new owner to develop trade further or possibly consider alternative uses including a restaurant/café/hotel or similar. The property has recently been refurbished at basement level providing a new Cocktail/Wine bar which needs to be seem to be believed! The owner’s accommodation at first and second floors is extensive and would lend itself to letting bedrooms with further attic storage on the top floor.
