About Briony Woods

I bought Lakeview in 2003 to escape from London. An idyllic retreat away from it all. I spent 7 blissful years living there before I moved back to London with my wife.

Briony Woods purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Briony Woods chose Kingsbridge

Not a whisper of traffic noise, not another building in sight; just idyllic grounds, a lovely sunny terrace overlooking the gardens and first class facilities.

What makes this apartment unique

The magic and peacefulness of the place together with the amazing grounds, heated pools and other facilities.

Quality accommodation for wonderful family times

  • 4 of 5
We were all surprised at the beautiful accommodation, however we did not know there were other cottages surrounding the house. This did not cause us any issues, as we only saw another couple of families during our holiday. The facilities supporting the house were also excellent, we all enjoyed the pools and I even used the the gym ( yes on my holidays!).
The only feedback I would give is with regard to the towels, as the house information stated towels were included, which they were but I was expecting more than one towel per person for a
week. As it stated they were included I had not taken any additional 'non swimming' towels with us. Yes there are washing facilities, but I personally don't want to be washing whilst on holiday.

The local pub serves great food and it is easily walkable even for little legs! There are also some great restaurants in the surrounding area.

I would highly recommend this estate and accommodation, but my advice would be take more towels!

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for taking the time to review the property.

Regarding the towels, guests should normally receive two towels (1 hand towel and 1 bath towel) and linen and towels are changed at the end of every week. Beach and pool towels are not provided. We are so sorry that this was not made clear to you.

With thanks again for your review.

Wunderbarer Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5
Alles war perfekt: Eine sehr nette Vermieterin, eine tolle Anlage, Ruhe pur, viele tolle Strände, Wanderwege und Sehenswürdigkeiten in erreichbarer Nähe und eine sehr gepflegte Wohnung, die alles enthielt, was man wirklich braucht. Besonders gefallen hat uns das morgendliche Frühstück auf der schönen Terasse mit Blick in den großen Garten sowie das abendliche Bad im Pool. Für alle Altersgruppen finden sich auf der weitläufigen Anlage Angebote und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten. Besonders angenehm war, das alles gut organisiert ist, (wie z.B. Parkplätze und Müll) und auch alles sehr gepflegt ist. Frische Blumen und erste Kleinigkeiten im Kühlschrank sorgen dafür, dass man sich sofort wie zuhause fühlt. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Owner's Response: We're very touched that you took the time to let us know how wonderful your stay was and so pleased that you had such a lovely time. We very much look forward to having you back!

(Approximate translation in English below)

Everything was perfect: a very nice landlady, a great facility, pure tranquillity, many great beaches, hiking trails and attractions within walking distance and a very neat apartment that contained everything you really need. Especially enjoyed the morning breakfast on the beautiful terrace overlooking the large garden and the evening dip in the pool. The resort/retreat offers something for all age groups. It was particularly pleasing that is well organized everything (like parking and garbage) and everything is well maintained. Fresh flowers and a few small things in the fridge on arrival ensure that you feel at home immediately. We will come back!

Lovely, peaceful place to stay, great for kids

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in the apartment and found it a great place to stay with our little girl and baby. The treats on arrival were SO welcome! Thanks very much, a lovely surprise. The Colmer Estate is absolutely beautiful and very peaceful - listening to the birdsong in the evening v relaxing and the lake was lovely as the sun was going down. Didn't get much of a chance to use the facilities but they are great and the pools are just lovely and v well-maintained. Great location. We really appreciated being left alone to just enjoy the accommodation - very unobtrusive. The apartment had everything we needed - travel cot, wifi etc etc. and kitchen was well stocked. For anyone reading this, I'd recommend a trip to Blackpool Sands beach near Dartmouth (although maybe take some good footwear as the pebbles hurt to walk on!) It is a STUNNINGLY beautiful beach - unbelievable! I'd recommend this for couples or families. Although there were other families staying it was just very peaceful and I would have been very happy there without kids too. Thank you very much! Megan

Fabulous accomodation&amenities!

Fabulous accomodation&amenities!
  • 4 of 5
Lovely setting and amenities. We had great weather for half the time and went to the beach 3 days in a row. Bantham bay and its Gastrobus are amazing. Managed to use the outdoor pool every day - sometimes till 6pm and kids are 2&4! Briony was very helpful- even recommending accomodation for friends who were joining us which added to the family fun. She was excellent at keeping in touch,organising and providing local info eg beaches, shops. Already considering a return...

A beautiful, relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here. The property is beautifully clean and immaculately presented. The grounds are lovely and great for the kids to explore. The indoor pool is nice and warm and our kids spent hours in there. It's so quiet and peaceful on the Colmer estate, we went home feeling relaxed and rested.

Car: necessary

Nestled in the rolling countryside between Dartmoor and the South Devon beaches, the Colmer Estate is ideally situated for those wishing to visit this area of outstanding natural beauty. This is an area of dramatic cliff-top and coastal walks, hidden valleys, sweeping moors and quiet sandy coves to explore at your own pace.

-

Just a short walk away you will find the multi-award winning California County Inn which provides delicious meals. Also close to hand are excellent places to eat in the pubs at Avonwick, Ugborough and Moreleigh.

-

At California Cross there is a garage shop where you will find a wide range of essential groceries and a cash point ATM Machine.

-

We can guarantee that you won't get bored if you visit Lake View. In addition to the wonderful facilities that are available to our visitors on the Colmer Estate, we've put together a list of just some of the things to see and do in the locality.

-

It could be visiting one of the many National Trust properties, rambling one of the hundreds of trails, lazing on Blue Flag beaches, an easy back nine, followed by a trip to one of the many superb restaurants... or maybe a visit to Eden then something to keep the kids occupied?

-

FAVOURITES

-

With so much to do, sometimes you're just spoilt for choice. So here are some of our favourites:

-

The beach at Bigbury

Check tides in the local directory and plan your outing to fit in with high/low tides. When the tide is high there is still a lot of sand, but as it ebbs there are many exciting rockpools and vast expanses of superb sand. You also get to visit Burgh Island on the sea tractor!

-

The beach at Mill Bay

Opposite Salcombe, via East Portlemouth. There is a National Trust carpark, a good beach shop, and for the energetic a 30 minute walk across the fields takes you to the Gara Rock Hotel, where the views are stunning and the refreshments well worthwhile. Clowns entertain on Sunday afternoons and if you walk back via the coast (45 minutes) you won’t be disappointed. Alternatively have lunch at the Millbrook Inn South Pool then catch the little ferry over to Salcombe for a browse. Don’t miss the local pubs, chocolate factory and museum beneath the Tourist Information Centre in Salcombe.

-

The beach at South Sands

Next to Salcombe. Park at the hotel or at the National Trust carpark at Sharpitor Gardens where there is a superb picnic spot with a fantastic view, gardens reminiscent of the Mediterranean, and an interesting museum where children will spend some time doing the quiz and looking for Fred the friendly ghost in the children’s area through the secret door. You could hire canoes etc. at South Sands or catch the ferry boat to Salcombe, walking back along the coast lane – once again stunning views.

-

The Round Robin trip (Totnes-Dartmouth)

By boat, ferry, steam train and open-top double decker bus. You can pick this up at Totnes or Dartmouth – we find Totnes more convenient. You can take all day over this, stopping off en route, or nip around in about two hours. There is also a steam train from Buckfastleigh to Totnes with a vintage bus connection.

-

Morwhellham Quay

Combined with Buckfast Abbey (of Francis Drake fame) or Cotehele, a National Trust property suitable for dreaming swashbuckling youngsters.

-

The Aquarium in Plymouth

Not to be missed – ideal for a rainy day – very new and allegedly the best in the country. Close to the Mayflower Experience in the picturesque Barbican.

-

Dartmouth Castle

For young buccaneers. You can park up there or, if you are more energetic, you could park the car in the National Trust car park at Stoke, walk along the coastal path or track (shorter/easier at 25 minutes), visit the castle then take the ferry into Dartmouth.

-

The Visitor’s Centre at Princetown

Followed by a trip over Dartmoor (beautiful place) and antique shopping in Ashburton or white water rafting and other adventures at the Dart Country Park.

-

Mackerel fishing

From Dartmouth, Plymouth or Salcombe - that’s if you like cooking mackerel, as they are inclined to catch rather a lot!

-

Woodlands Theme Park and Pennywell

Perfect whole days out for children. Personally we would do our very best to avoid Trago Mills (with or without children) unless you have greater stamina than us and are all shopaholics who like ferreting for a good bargain, even when on holiday!!

-

Just a few more...

We love to visit Coleton Fishacre (NT), the Dartington Arts Centre, the Reel Cinema in Kingsbridge, the Eden Project together with Lanhydrock and of course all the fantastic coastline walks.

-

Finally, pamper your taste buds

You should not be disappointed if you eat at the Ship at Ugborough, the Ship at Noss Mayo – and last, but by far the least, the Oyster Shack at Aveton Gifford . But no doubt you will find your own favourites!
