The marshwood vale. Colmer sits at the top of the Marshwood vale and from the top of the drive there are stunning views across to the sea of Lyme bay. There are long or short walks in the immediate area. From Colmer it is an easy stroll to the local pup for good food and beer. In this area there are ample places to eat and drink just a short drive away, you can dine on caribbean, or pop to the coast for fish and chips. The area of Lyme Regis. Lyme is an old fishing town full of character with plenty of things to do and see. Further along the coast you have the unspoilt fishing village of Beer . There is also the famous jurassic coastline which is only 10 minutes away, plenty to do wind, rain or shine....The marshwood vale.

About the neighbourhood
There are lots of places to visit in the immediate area. Forde Abbey is about 4miles away, it is a family run abbey with beautiful grounds, and the abbey its self is steeped in history. Henry the 8th abolished the monks in the abbey and you will find alot of the old houses in the area have what they call priest holes (Colmer has one) where the monks used to hide. Pilsdon hill, this is an iron age fort , is 3 to 4 miles away with the most stunning views over the Vale to the coast. Abbostbury with its swannery is also worth a trip. On wet days there is Pecorama in Beer also Beer caves. Not far away is Creley adventure park. Or just relax by the sea with a picnic.
