LUXURY HOLIDAY APARTMENT 2 HEATED POOLS,TENNIS COURT,LAKE,VICTORIAN GARDENS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Kingsbridge - The Lawns, No. 5

Sleeps 5 + cot, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 28 acres of grounds,log cabin playhouse,

The Lawns, No. 5 Colmer House

Located deep in the heart of the South Hams, you will find The Lawns, No.5 Colmer House. An English Tourist Board 5-star rated luxury holiday apartment, and part of the Colmer Estate, it is set in 28 acres of private grounds, with an extensive range of year round indoor and outdoor leisure facilities.

Colmer House is an 18th Century Georgian building, sympathetically renovated and restored to its former glory in the mid-1990s and converted into a number of privately owned luxury apartments. The Lawns has very recently been refurbished to the highest standards offering comfort and practicality.

The Lawns is the centre right apartment at the front of the Manor House, with a south facing aspect and wonderful views from its windows across the grounds to the lake. The lounge doors lead directly to a large paved patio, surrounded by a balustrade wall which looks out over the immaculate lawns. The patio is private, sheltered and is furnished with a table, chairs and gas barbecue.

A private entrance leads directly to a spacious open-plan lounge and dining area with fitted kitchen. Tastefully decorated, the lounge features a cream 3 piece leather suite, brown leather dining chairs and table, TV, video and DVD player. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine/tumble-drier.

Stairs lead to a large open landing, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Brightly furnished throughout , the master bedroom has a large double bed, generous wardrobes and a comfortable arm-chair to relax in. The large second bedroom has 2 single beds and the bathroom features a bath, power-shower, toilet and hand basin, all equipped to a very high standard.

The apartment has wireless broadband internet for those of you that bring your laptops with you.

We regret, The Lawns is a non-smoking property and no pets are permitted.

The Colmer Estate

The excellent facilities of the Colmer estate are all free of charge and exclusively for the use of the Colmer Guests. These include swimming pools, a tennis court, fishing lake, fitness suite, croquet lawn and boules.

The outdoor kidney-shaped swimming pool is heated from the May Spring Bank Holiday through the summer months, and the Indoor pool is heated all the year round. The fitness suite is equipped with rowing, walking and cycling machines, a sit up frame and a bench press with weights.

28 acres of private grounds include a mixture of grass lawns, woodland, wild flower meadows, a walled garden equipped with children’s play equipment and boules pitch. Coarse fishing is available on the private lake, which is stocked with large Carp and Golden Rudd. You can always find plenty of walks to try, or a secluded spot where you can picnic, quietly read or just doze. The estate is home to a variety of wildlife - badgers, foxes, rabbits, deer, and game birds such as woodcocks and pheasants. And of course the moorhens and resident mallards on the lake!

Discounted temporary membership is available at the nearby Dartmouth Golf and County Club on Green Fees and all their leisure facilities. Other courses in the area include Bigbury - Thurstone and Wrangton. Horse riding is also available nearby.

It is superbly positioned for ease of access to Kingsbridge, Salcombe,Dartmouth,Totnes and Plymouth, and is surrounded by picturesque villages and unspoilt country side. Dartmoor and Torbay are also within easy reach. The nearest beaches are at Bigbury, Bantham, Thurlestone and Hope Cove. The coast is perfect for sailing, windsurfing, body boarding and other water sports, while also providing safe sandy beaches for families

Location

Our favourites places

We thought we should list a few of our favourites places, just give you an idea where to start. There is so much to do, sometimes you're just spoilt for choice. But we think you can't go wrong with these ideas.

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 come back from 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

By boat, ferry, steam train and open-top double decker bus. You can pick this up at Totnes or Dartmouth – we find Totnew 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 carpark 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

are perfect whole days out for children, but 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 (about one hour drive, but leave early to there by 10 am, otherwise arrive at 2pm) – and of course all the fantastic coastline walks.

Finally, pamper your tastebuds

You should not be disappointed if you eat at the Ship at Ugborough, the New Inn at Moreleigh, the old Church House at Harbertonfor, the Tower Inn at Slapton, the Port Light twixt Soar Mill and Hope Coves, Pig Finca in Kingsbridge, the Ship and Dolphin at Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo – and last but by far the least, the Oyster Shack at Easton, on the way to Bigbury – or you could just eat in as Jasmine Chinese Restaurant in Kingsbridge offer a free delivery service too, which can save the day if all else fails. But no doubt you will find favourites of your own – the opportunities appear to be endless. Alternatively you could just go fishing, put your feet up, play the odd game of tennis, take a dip in the pool, read a good book, listen to the birds or some light music and relax in the garden.
