Description

Columbia simply has something to suit everyone’s tastes as there are plenty of facilities in the estate and beautiful walks nearby.

"Enjoy the ‘cream’ of Devon at one of the ten cottages on the Ashcombe Estate..."

Set in the heart of rolling Devon countryside, the privately owned Ashcombe country estate nestles in a quiet, beautiful valley filled with things to do and a short drive from the sandy beaches of Dawlish and Torquay. Enjoy walking around the estate’s hills and woodlands, swim in the heated indoor swimming pool, or relax in the sauna at Woodhouse Farm while children play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. Both The Cider Barn, a mile away and sleeping 16, and Nut Tree Farm, sleeping 28, have their own outdoor swimming pools for the summer.
The cottages are both comfortable and practical, with a wide range of Devon attractions right on the doorstep. All are maintained to very high standards with leather sofas, Wi-Fi, flatscreen digital TVs and very comfortable beds. Many retain original features, including oak beamed ceilings, and all have either Italian-tiled or wooden floors.
Sleeping from 4 to 28 people, and rated either 4 or 5 stars, the cottages can accommodate almost any party size, and an in-house chef (arranged direct with the owner) can be booked to take care of the catering.
The brilliant Ashcombe Adventure Centre for outdoor activities, is just under a mile down the lane. Available at extra cost for those 14 years and over, it offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and more. Also located on the estate is ’A Touch of the Wild’, a camp-based forest activity club. Children can take part in bush-craft courses and activities ranging from camp fire cooking and toasting marshmallows to bug hunting and learning woodland skills - a day with the experienced staff will ensure youngsters come away with a new found love of the great outdoors. The Ashcombe Village Club opens on various evenings providing cheap beer in a cheerful atmosphere, event evenings, traditional summer fêtes and shows.
Both Dartmoor National Park and the historic city of Exeter are only a 20-minute drive away, while the famous South Devon Coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles. Exeter and Newton Abbot Racecourses, several golf courses, loads of family theme parks, zoos, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach, not to mention the many excellent pubs and restaurants that Devon is famous for. Walk in the wild beauty of Dartmoor with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes, or visit the numerous nearby National Trust properties including Agatha Christie’s house, Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques and brilliant Regatta Week and Air Show. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and water sports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham. Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive.
All in all Ashcombe is an excellent base from which to explore, experience and enjoy ‘The Cream of Devon’. All big supermarkets deliver direct to your cottage. Main shops 3 miles.

    We had an amazing time at Columbia. The facilities were perfect, loads for the kids to do and keep them amused. The cottage is beautiful and contains everything you could want for a weekend away. We celebrated my Mum's 70th birthday together as a family and made some wonderful memories.

    Lovely cottage! Had the best weekend and I have only heard great things from the others who stayed. Very easy to complete bookingand straight forward check in, no problems. Only issue was the lack nearby shops, closest was 20mins away, lucky we brought everything with us but if a car is available it's not much of a problem. The wifi was also a bit of an issue but obviously that can't be helped as that's down to the location.

    A very well equipped cottage with lovely views and good amenities except I did expect hair dryers which appeared only to be wall mounted bathroom heaters not good for hair-drying We really enjoyed our holiday and walking around the roads nearby although we couldn't find any foot paths on the farm The playroom and swimming were great although we thought £1 a go for the pool table was a bit steep. There was more than ample crockery cutlery etcThe washing machines were rather slow. And dryer function not that good I think one good washing machine and one tumble dryer may have been better however all these things are minor and didn't detract from our holiday
