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.

AS BEAUTIFUL AS IT LOOKS

  • 5 of 5
We love this property. With two small kids it's important for us to have a safe environment to let them run around in whilst we can relax.

The outdoor pool is magnificent, the grounds spectacular, the terrace a real sun-trap... I could go on.

Just wish we could have had longer!

RELAXING AND TRANQUIL GETAWAY IN SOUTH DEVON

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have just spent a fabulous week staying in Lake View on the Colmer Estate. I don't remember having slept so well for ages with nothing but the birds to wake you in the mornings and the luxury of a superking bed to lie in and listen. The flat was very clean with all of the amenities required for a very comfortable stay. The private terrace is a lovely bonus and the perfect suntrap to catch a few rays on a sunny afternoon.
Colmer is a terrific location from which to explore South Devon and we visited both Dartmoor and several of the beaches. I love Bigbury Island myself and am very keen to return for their formal jazz evening of a Wednesday or Saturday night. And for those days where we chose not to wander so far afield Colmer itself offers a wealth of activity. The well grromed grounds are a pleasure to wander and for those more energetic moments we made the most of the tennis court and heated pools. I even improved my eye on the darts board.
A great place for all of the family and one that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends.

Totally blissful stay in very comfortable accommodation, stunning location and excellent facilities. Very relaxing for us and plenty for the kids to do too (rain or shine)! Couldn't recommend it more!

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!
