“Lovely cottage & surroundings ”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely cottage in quiet beautiful surroundings.
Nearby indoor pool was used every day & most days we had it to ourselves.
Great touch of scones, clotted cream, jam, cookies & a pint of milk waiting on arrival.
Fantastic big bathrooms on 1st & 2nd floor. Limited space downstairs but made decent use of it with mod cons to help a party of 7 relax.
Would definitely recommend others to visit

“A nice cottage, but a little tired”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We've spent a weekend at Mill Cottage with friends. The Colmer Estate is lovely with an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis court, lake, children's play equipment etc. Sadly the outdoor pool had no water in it during our stay in May.

The cottage is comfortable and overall nice with new modern bathrooms. However compared to other cottages we've stayed in it is a little tired. The kitchen is not that well equipped (no beer glasses, not enough dishwasher tabs, bin bags etc.) and the bedding is grotty and needs replacing.

It served us well for our weekend away and we loved the area, but some investment is required to keep it good.

Glad you enjoyed the Colmer Estate. The outdoor swimming pool had been undergoing some refurbishment, which is why it was empty. It will be ready for when it is heated from the late spring bank holiday through to September. Thank you for your feedback. We haven't had any complaints before, but we will review the kitchen equipment and bedding at the cottage.

“We loved it.”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Colmer estate is beautiful, peaceful and has amenities to suit all ages and tastes. Short trips in the car enable visits to the generally unspoilt beaches and attractions of the South Devon coast. Mill Cottage was clean, freshly and tastefully decorated, spacious and welcoming with everything we needed. The owners were very helpful in providing us with information before our trip. Our little grandson loved his first experiences of swimming in the warm indoor pool, just up the steps and round the corner.

Thank-you so much for your review. There are many beautiful and unspoilt beaches a short drive away from Mill Cottage, as well as the wilderness of Dartmoor to explore.

Cottage is great, everything you could need in the kitchen, very comfortable beds, lots of boardgames all in all a great experience.
And very close to a wonderful pub :)
Would definitely like to go back, would love to try the outdoor pool as well.

Thank-you so much for your review. Yes both the indoor and the outdoor pools are just round the back of Mill Cottage! And the 28 acres are great to explore and ramble in!

This is a lovely quiet place with just the sound of birdsong all around. The kids loved the indoor pool and walled garden. Cottage was well equipped and clean. Great holiday.
