August 2018

We loved the complex with the two pools, tennis, gym and table tennis. The atmosphere was very friendly and we felt very at ease. Toad Hall Cottages served us exceptionally well and we found all your communications most helpful. We would recommend eating at the California Inn - just a 10 minute walk from the cottage and very good food.

September 2017

Absolutely lovely cottage with everything we needed. Outdoor pool was great.

September 2016

In a beautiful location with secure wi-fi, use of estate facilities and within easy reach of coast, Dartmoor and major towns. It is a lovely quiet spot where the properties do not overlook one another. Owner left a welcome card and complimentary bottles of wine which was very nice. The cottage had everything we needed for our holiday.

September 2016

The house is airy and bright and well equipped including wi-fi (so useful to us with the total lack of o2 signal in the area!). Coupled with the peace and quiet of the Colmer Estate and its facilities - indoor and outdoor pools for example - and it makes for an ideal location for a relaxing break within easy reach of moors, beaches, coastal walks.

May 2016

A comfortable,clean and modern cottage on a beautiful and tranquil estate. It is light and has everything you need for a break away. Ideal if you are looking for a relaxing retreat in the heart of the lovely South Hams, close to wonderful beaches and wild moorland. With the added bonus of an indoor pool, (outdoor pool June-Sept) gym and tennis courts as well as large grounds to walk through and a small lake for a spot of fishing or wildlife spotting, there's plenty to do all seasons and weathers without going out! A shop, petrol station and pub are all on the approach road, within a short stroll. A place to recharge your batteries, relax and listen to the birds!
