Musbury is a pretty East Devon village located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which has a wide range of facilities including a garage, primary school, Church and a local public house. The village is conveniently located for a short drive to Seaton, Axminster, Lyme Regis and Colyton, which is famous for its Grammar School: one of the best achieving in the Country.
At Axminster there is a main line station on the London Waterloo line and good road connections to the M5 and the A303. The Jurassic Coast is readily accessible at nearby Axmouth, Beer and Branscombe as well as the larger towns of Seaton, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth. This part of the coastline is designated a World Heritage site and there are a variety of public footpaths to enjoy the coastal scenery.

Pennys Cottage, originally two cottages, is a delightful Grade II Listed, approximately 400 year old thatched property.
It is situated in a quiet lane on the outskirts of the attractive village of Musbury and benefits from many character features including a lovely inglenook fireplace in the lounge.
The property has been updated over the years and has a mixture of single and double glazed windows and a Rayburn in the kitchen which provides the gas fired central heating.
There are attractive cottage gardens and off road parking and this 'chocolate box' cottage really must be viewed to be appreciated.
