About Elaine Gosling

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.

Elaine Gosling purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Elaine Gosling chose Modbury

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.

Lovely property on beautiful estate

  • 5 of 5

We booked several months in advance as we loved the look of this property. We weren't disappointed. Our booking was handled very professionally by Ms Gosling. Very clean and comfortable inside and loved the jacuzzi bath! The swimming pool was great and very quiet when we went (May).

We would like to return although school holiday periods are expensive.

Super holiday cottage, cosy, comfy, delightful!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week during the April holidays , a family of 4 , including two boys aged 12 and 15. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated,it's cosy and v well laid out. When the sun shone the patio with the table and chairs were a lovely spot.

On arriving we found scones and Prosecco left for us, a lovely touch. This holiday home is literally one minute from the main road, which is a real bonus in Devons narrow roads. The California cross petrol station stocked a good selection of emergency fodder. We would recommend Church House Inn in church stow for Sunday lunch (a carvery) but you must book.

Recommend bringing wellies if you want to explore the lovely grounds.

Peace and tranquility away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a very happy stay ay Lakeview. It was early March and so there were very few other residents on site. The property itself was very well appointed and warm although the kitchen/ seating area would be cramped for 4 adults but perfect for two. If the weather had been warmer the terrace would have been a perfect place to sit and relax.

We loved the peace and quiet and the chorus of birdsong that greeted us outdoors.

Easy to get to from the A38 and lots of interesting places to explore within a 30 min car journey.

Beware the "white" van drivers they are not very willing to stop to let you by on the narrow white roads???????????

We would certainly think about going again and have no hesitation recommending this property to others

A lovely peaceful place in tranquil setting

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful and quiet place to stay. This was a last minute book and couldn't have been happier with the choice. Bedrooms were all spacious and clean. Lovely area for exploring and found lovely little cafés to for snacks after recommendations from the housekeeping team. Thank you for a wonderful stay and hope to be back soon

Fantasically tranquii location. Relaxing, well equiped accomodation wuth great leisure facilities.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Lakeview. Again we were not disappointed. A great location with ideal facilities for young, active boys. The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped. The communication from the management was excellent and the hospitality superb. We will, no doubt, be returning.

A perfect location and property

  • 5 of 5

Booked day before we intended to travel for a short break with my daughter. Booking was quick and efficient, and a query was responded to within no time at all.

On arrival we had a cream tea and a bottle of wine waiting for us, very much appreciated and enjoyed.

The accommodation was perfect a real home from home everything we would need was available and set out very well. Enjoyed the gym and the warm inside pool, and had a lovely walk around the beautiful grounds.

We intend to visit again soon. Excellent service.

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!
