    > Nestled in the heart of Devonshire countryside this privately owned country estate boasts a selection of cottages of varying sizes just waiting to be enjoyed.
    Sleeping from 4 to 28 people (refs: HDDE, HGGL, HHX, HJJD, HOOT, HHY, HXN, HNNF, HHZ, HJA), this makes for a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a relaxing break with family or for larger groups looking for a base for that special occasion in glorious surroundings. A shared indoor heated swimming pool is very close to the properties (apart from HGGL which is 1 mile away and has its own pool), sauna and indoor and outdoor playgrounds are also available.
    The cottages are well presented and have been lovingly maintained throughout. All have leather suites and either Italian tiled or wooden floors, and some even boast oak beams. For that extra special treat an in house chef is also available for hire.
    Exploring the area will uncover lots of opportunities including Ashcombe outdoor activity centre (chargeable), offering paintballing, archery, fishing and quad biking for over 14’s. Outdoor, hands on activities can also be enjoyed at the camp in the woods where trained staff teach youngsters how to light fires, search for bugs and build shelters. Outside adventure also waits at Dartmoor National Park, which is easily accessible. Explore on foot or bicycle, an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
    The city of Exeter is only 20 minutes by car with its selection of museums, art galleries and plenty of shopping opportunities while the coast provides beaches, coastal walks and lovely scenery.
    Admire the fishing boats at Beer or the water sports at Salcombe. There truly is so much to enjoy.
    The good selection of theme parks and zoos the area provides will be sure to keep children entertained and the well-known Eden Project is within an hour’s drive.

    We enjoyed a birthday weekend with friends and family. The cottage was spacious and clean with good equipment. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Cots are provided However guests should be aware of the many steps up to the property, between the down stairs living areas, spiral wooden steps to the bedrooms, and the fact that there is no downstairs toilet. We managed the stairs but it could be a problem for some. The cottage is reached by narrow country roads and it is a drive to the nearer shop. We managed for a weekend but it would have meant driving if we had stayed longer. There is a lack of toilet paper in the cottage. One roll between shared bathrooms isn't adequate.

    The house was ideal - plenty of space downstairs in an open plan format (and the tiled floor is scheduled for replacement by vinyl). The lack of a downstairs toilet was a minor inconvenience (no pun intended) but there are five bathrooms upstairs. The view from the front patio was stunning - the rear patio/BBQ offered a degree of privacy. The (shared) swimming pool was fantastic.

    Really great facilities for families with children - we loved the pool, pool room, and kids playground and playroom. We also had a great time at the nearby adventure centre.

    Beautiful location spacious and reasonably equipped. Could do with update and tlc (bbq, bath mats need to be rubber not plastic, kitchen units, larger TV for size of room, cleaning of pool and re grouting of tiles, extractor not working in bathroom or kitchen) Some issues whilst there dealt with fairly quickly by maintenance team (broken cooker, radiator, leaking shower) Overall we had a wonderful time suited all 16 of us There were 2 cots and 3 high chairs more than stated in booking so a bonus. Would recommend as could not find a more beautiful place, peaceful and quiet, and relaxing break. Would recommend supermarket delivery of foods from Tesco and Sainsbury’s get the right post code

    This is a return visit to Columbia. We did enjoy ourselves immensely but the accommodation was a little disappointing. It seemed a somewhat run down since last time. We had a fault with a shower which was repaired, but also reported a dishwasher problem and a pay phone problem, neither of which were resolved. The fan oven was very noisy and not very efficient. However on the plus side the cots and high chairs were provided as requested and we would consider returning as it is such a good size for our family

    It was absolutely perfect in all of the above aspects. It was very well equipped and comfortable and even for a large party it was still very spacious. The pool was lovely as was the sauna... we couldn't find the hot tub as stated in the black book but it didn't bother us. It was a wonderful January blues escape for all of us and great value for money, looking to return same time next year :)

    The cottage is nice and well off the beaten track. It is not however very "old people" friendly with steps and fierce staircases all over. The lounge and dining areas are tiled and this gives a cold, less than cosy atmosphere. The bedrooms and bathrooms are good and the one bedroom with a tree as a roof timber is spectacular. The swimming pool and sauna is great, my grandchildren loved to swim at every opportunity. The wildlife in the immediate area is lovely with pheasant, rabbits and squirrel everywhere The venue badly needs a downstairs loo, also the lighting in the lounge is inadequate. I said no to using again, only because I have experienced better for better price, Ipplepen a good example.

    Overall a lovely big cottage but could do with an update downstairs. We have stayed at Ashcombe cottages 5 times over the last few years and have always had a fantastic time. The indoor pool and play areas are brilliant! Great place to go with family or friends. So nice and easy to check in and check out with no fuss. We will definitely be coming back.
