Sleeps 4 + cot Waterfall Cottage is a traditional stone built cottage set on the 28 acre Colmer Estate in the beautiful South Hams. It was originally the sawmill for the Estate before being sympathetically restored. The Colmer Estate dates back over 700 years. The large water wheel which powered the saw bench can still be seen. The walled fruit and vegetable garden is now the children's play area. Waterfall Cottage is situated ideally between the indoor and outdoor pool. The two bedroom cottage has an open plan living space with a stable door leading to a private terrace with BBQ and seating overlooking the beautiful communal outdoor swimming pool. It’s the perfect place to sit back and take in the views of the majestic trees within the ground of the Colmer Estate.

The two bedroom cottage has an open plan living space with a stable door leading to a private terrace with BBQ and seating overlooking the beautiful communal outdoor swimming pool. It’s the perfect place to sit back and take in the views of the majestic trees within the ground of the Colmer Estate. This view is really quite special and one that persuaded us to buy the cottage, well that and the lake, the wildlife, swimming pools …… The cottage is ideally suited for both families and couples. There is high chair and travel cot for our youngest visitors. Guests of the cottage have full use of all of the facilities which include: - an indoor pool which is open all year round. Please note it is closed for cleaning on Saturdays 10am-3pm. - an outdoor pool open (end of) May- (beginning of) September. - an all-weather tennis court - table tennis table - fitness gym (over 16s) - walled garden with children’s play area and pavillion - private lake and woodlands - wildflower meadow There is a well stocked local shop and a gastro pub just a 5 minute walk away from the cottage. We welcome one well-behaved dog in the property. We ask that they are kept in the living space. There is a stair gate to help your dog stay out of the bedrooms. The grounds make the cottage ideal for those with a four legged friend and there are lots of dog friendly beaches in the area. These are just a few - Soar Mill Cove (Salcombe), Salcombe North Sands, South Milton Sands (Kingsbridge), Strete Gate Beach (Dartmouth). If you want to experience some wonderful walks and breath-taking views of a different kind Dartmoor National Park is less than 10 miles away. The cottage is just a short drive to many beautiful attractions in Devon. The South Hams has rivers, moor land and the coast means that there are lots of outdoor activities to get involved in such as surfing, canoeing, walking and sailing. The nearest beach Bantham is just a 20 minute drive and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It also has a reputation of being one of the best surf beaches in Devon but is also great for families due to the acres of sandy pools that are revealed at low tide. The coastal town of Dartmouth is just a 30 minute drive away and has beautiful historic buildings and an amazing landscape. The river Dart offers the opportunity to get involved in sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding or simply taking a boat trip. Blackpool Sands which is one of the country’s top beaches and is just a short drive from Dartmouth. Salcombe is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It sits on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary and renowned for being one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. There are lots of water sports to enjoy and local beaches South Sands and North Sands are ideal for families. There is a wealth of heritage in the area and Totnes Castle and the South Devon Railway are well worth a visit. Woodlands Theme Park is great for children. The park is spread over a 100 acres and has some great water slides and rides.More
