Perfect 3 day break
Stayed for a 3 day half term break with 3 boys (12, 9,7). The accommodation was a good size for all of us and was equipped with everything we needed. Even board games! We had fantastic weather for February but still used the pool every evening when we got back from walking. Had the pool to ourselves every time which was brilliant with noisy boys! The gym room was a little hot for too much excercise as within the warm pool building. The grounds are lovely and having the private garden was a bonus, rabbits nibbling the grass every evening. The owner was very responsive (and very understanding when the fridge door wouldn’t shut). Would go back!
Perfect base to visit family nearby
A great base for us over Christmas and while we didn’t spend much time in the property it had everything we needed. We were delighted to be welcomed by a bottle of festive fizz and goodies.
A lovely flat in a beautiful location.
We enjoyed our stay in Woodside. It was very comfortable and well equipped. The swimming pool was a real bonus and great that you could use it any time of day. We visited Bigbury on sea and beaches nearby which were lovely. We went to Buckfastleigh abbey and on the steam train which as something we had not done before. We also visited Kingsbridge, Modbury and Newton Ferrers. It is a nice area. We have used owners direct several times and never been disappointed.
Property good accessibility not good .
Step down in the living room very dangerous fell down it twice nothing to warn you about it .you need to inform infirm people the access is up hill and a long walk .
The swimming pool needs a hand rail on the steps to help the the elderly get in .the whole site is not very older people friendly.
Apartment in beautiful woodland setting
The property is set in lovely woodland setting the property itself was very clean spacious and welcoming everything you need for a great stay added extra having a free indoor and outdoor heated pools would highly recommend and will book again
Property disappointing but Colmer Estate great
Great location and the Colmer Estate is fabulous. Both pools excellent. Property was disappointing- the furniture and decor needs updating. The pictures do not show the rest of the living room and there was no comfortable sofa to relax on in the evening. The bathroom also needs updating. On the positive side having your own washing machine and tumble dryer was very helpful and there was more privacy at this property than others on the estate.
