                                                              Wonderful cottage in stunning location

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We spent a very enjoyable week in Gatehouse West in early May 2016 with our 3 year old and 10 month old children and left wishing we could have stayed longer as there was so much to do. The cottage was newly renovated, beautifully decorated, very well equipped and everything provided is of a high quality. We particularly appreciated the travel cot and high chair which saved us having to bring our own. The enclosed sunny garden was a pleasant place to sit and listen to the birds. All of this made for a very comfortable stay and we will certainly be returning again in the future. The Colmer estate on which the cottage is situated is a very tranquil setting for a relaxing holiday. The grounds and facilities are very well kept and offer plenty to keep children (and adults!) of a range of ages entertained. We used the indoor pool most days, enjoyed exploring the extensive grounds, using the play room in the walled garden and our son particularly enjoyed finding the log animals hidden in the woods. The nearby (5mins walk) shop at California Cross was convenient. The cottage is well located for the coast, Dartmoor and many pretty villages. We particularly enjoyed Salcombe and the nearby National Trust property ‘Overbecks’, the cafe at Gara Rock with its good food and panoramic views, the huge sandy beach at Bigbury on Sea and the nearby seafood restaurant ‘Oyster shack’. Our children loved the model village at Babbacombe and the pushchair friendly Granite Way walk near Shipley Bridge on the edge of Dartmoor.

                                                              There were 14 of us who visited this grand country house over Easter, ranging from teenagers to middle- aged folk. We all fell in love with the house the moment we set foot in it. The lake and gardens are breathtaking beautiful. The house is clean and well-maintained. There is a large Tesco near by which we found to be convenient. Have highly recommended this lovely house to others. Hoping to return one day.

                                                              We have just come back from a wonderfully relaxing week at this property on the Colmer Estate. It was ideal for my two children (8 and 11), as it provided a safe environment for them to run around and explore. There was a lot for them to do on site and in the surrounding area (surfing at Bantham certainly blew away the cobwebs). The local pub is a must, serving a great range of food. We found the property clean, homely and in good order. The owner had gone out of his way to make our stay as easy and comfortable as he could and we would strongly recommend this property.
