Really spacious and lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was set in lovely grounds which felt very private and relaxing. Good large parking space pretty close to the apartment. Apartment is really spacious with two large bedrooms and comfy beds. There were also little night lights in the hall and lounge which were very useful. Kitchen was very well equipped and clean. Apartment nice and clean throughout. The photos really didn't do it justice! The owner was very helpful and friendly and answered all my questions via email, prior to our arrival. There was even milk, cookies, snacks and wine left for us! The indoor pool was lovely, we tried the outdoor pool but weather was just a little cold to dare get in! Shame though, as the outdoor pool looked really nice and lots of places to sit and lounge around the outside. Didn't matter though because we had the indoor pool anyway and both pools are really close to the apartment, about a minutes walk.

The location was really good and near some really beautiful beaches- I'd recommend Bigbury and walking up Burgh Island. We only booked for three nights, but I'd like to stay longer next time and would definitely recommend staying at Woodside.

home from home at Woodside

  • 4 of 5

Our family have stayed in on two occasions and both times we have had a fabulous week. The property is well laid out with two large bedrooms. It has a homely and welcoming feel and the private garden was fabulous for BBQS and plenty of room for the children to play. The facilites at Colmer keep the children amused - fishing, the indoor and outdoor pools , play area and plenty of woodland walks. We would definately stay here again. Thank you.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay with children, Woodside has its own little garden for kids to play, as well as all the shared facilities. The outdoor pool is heated so warm enough even when the weather's not great! The location is great for exploring the towns and beaches in South devon with plenty to keep the kids occupied if you decide not to go out. We had a fabulous week and would definately stay again.

Perfect for families. We'll keep coming back!

  • 4 of 5

This was our third stay in Woodside. We have three young kids and it couldn't suit us better. Its clean, comfortable, has everything you need, yet (thank goodness) its not like a shiny-new-show-home, so you can really just let everyone relax and slob out without having to nag the kids. We always really relax there and there is SO much to do in the local and not too distant area, that there is still heaps of stuff that we haven't done yet.

The facilities in the estate are great and always in good condition and clean. There's a lovely hot indoor swimming pool and the kids can spend hours in there.

There is a mini market/petrol station/cash point at the end of the road which sells fresh croissants, and a pub with amazing food. So all you need is literally on your doorstep.

The flat itself is tucked away in the corner of the estate and is therefore very private. No one walks past it unless they've got lost! Friends of ours rented one of the flats at the front of the building, and nice as it was, it was a bit like being in a goldfish bowl. We love it at Woodside, its home-from-home, and the kids are constantly saying "when are we going back to Devon??"!

Cosy, clean and a real 'home from home'

  • 5 of 5

My son, daughter and I spent a lovely 5 days at Christmas, relaxing, exploring the beaches and countryside and cooking lots of meals in the great kitchen. Highly recommend as a real comfortable escape in a beautiful location.
