We had a wonderful stay, the cottage has all you could need and is a real home from home. Cathy was so kind and helpful and we will be coming back as we didn't have enough time to see all the sights. The photo's really don't do this place justice !!!!!!

Lovely quiet place to unwind

5 of 5
We had a lovely time using lake view as our base for exploring south Devon. We couldn't have needed more. Everything was provided, clean and comfortable. We got woken each morning by birds singing rather than traffic. All facilities on site were also great, pool was clean and good temperature although the outdoor would have been rather chilly! We would def come back as there is more to see and we wouldn't find a nicer place than Colver. Just remember to look in the draw of the coffee table for some information books! Thank you Elaine.

Very pleasant cottage.

4 of 5
Very nice kitchen and bathroom (both spacious). Wood burning stove is a very nice feature in lounge. The bed in master bedroom is soft. Cottage was clean and inviting but windows were a bit dirty which detracted from the sea views slightly.
