The space
The terrace is the perfect place to sit back and take in the views of the majestic trees within the grounds 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 and it's close proximity to both the sea and Dartmoor National Park.
