    About this property

    NEW & EXCLUSIVE TO OLIVER’S TRAVELS – 2019
    Welcome to the stunning grade II listed Colleton Hall and East Wing. It holds a truly marvellous location, nestled within thirty-eight acres of private woodland and parkland, it offers those fortunate enough to stay the perfect country escape where they can enjoy total tranquillity. Its unspoilt location, set between Exmoor to the north and Dartmoor to the south, makes Colleton the perfect choice for those wishing to really explore Devon and all that it has to offer. While you will be staying in an area boasting rolling countryside, moorlands and valleys, the rugged north Devon coastline with its gorgeous beaches, is just a short car journey away. The home boasts a rich and fascinating history and while it is believed to date back to Elizabethan times, Sir James Roupell Colleton purchased the Hall in 1833 and spent several years upgrading the house enhancing the existing Georgian features; today’s style and architecture reflect this. In recent years, Colleton Hall has been completely refurbished by the present owners, revealing original features and now seamlessly blends its original character and charm with modern interiors and updated furnishings. Colleton Hall can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests across six, well- appointed bedrooms. On the ground floor is the main living accommodation, the four grand reception rooms including a grand gothic reception hall are all south facing, overlooking the impressive grounds with doors leading onto the terraces.

Upstairs on the first floor are the six bedrooms, three king-size doubles, two double rooms and a children’s bunk bed room, each with en-suite bathroom or shower room.  There are terraces from the West Wing bedroom and also the master en-suite overlooking the lake and parkland in the distance.
    Large groups can be comfortably accommodated in the additional East Wing, taking the total number of guests up to 18. The stylish East Wing is a separate annex with a private entrance hall, living room, kitchen and 3 well-appointed bedrooms. Making it ideal for young families or older members of the party who require additional privacy.

    The real wow factor can be found outside, the grounds are south facing which allows guests to enjoy wonderful countryside views. The expansive grounds offer the opportunity for long walks through the totally private woodland alongside the stream which flows to the Little Dart River. The children are bound to enjoy wildlife spotting with the opportunity to see a range of diverse wildlife (including red deer) and birdlife!The near-by villages of Nomansland, Rackenford and Witheridge together offer helpful amenities including excellent pubs, post offices, village stores and restaurants. The Michelin award-winning restaurant The Mason Arms is just a 10-minute car journey away in Knowestone, while The Stagg Inn, said to be the oldest pub in Devon, is just over a mile away in Rackenford.

    "We had the pleasure of spending new year at Colleton hall in Devon. From the moment we arrived the owners Russel and Richard couldn’t have been more helpful. They unpacked our grocery shopping - provided us with complimentary chocolates - mince pies and also food basics just in case we had forgotten anything. They took time to give us a guided tour of the well appointed house so there was no possibility of us forgetting where things were.We always were given details about nearby shops - pubs etc. The house itself was decorated to a high standard in all rooms and the kitchen and sitting rooms had absolutely everything you would need for a week/weeks away from home, including plenty of wood for cosy log fires. We have stayed in many properties and we can honestly say that owners of Colleton hall made the holiday for us. We will be returning. Bravo !"

    "I wanted to find the perfect property to celebrate my husband’s 50th Bday, and I was not disappointed. I can honesty say this is the most outstanding property I have ever hired, and it is more like a boutique hotel with the added bonus of being completely private. All of the bedrooms are beautifully comfortable with en suites. The separate East Wing was very helpful for friends who attended without young children, and would be great for older members of the family too who want to avoid any late night noise. It’s child friendly too, as we had ages 1.5yrs+ in attendance. Despite its size (so much living space!) it is very cosy and we didn’t really want to leave. The owners are outstanding hosts, assisting with local suppliers like caterers (highly recommended to make the weekend even less stress-free) and meeting deliveries for us. Once the kids were in bed we were able to enjoy the beautiful dining room for an adults supper and take advantage of the fabulous Bose sound system! There is so much to say about this fabulous home, my advice would be just book it- you won’t be disappointed."

    "The entire experience exceeded expectations. It was a stunning house, with plenty of space and facilities, perfect for large groups! The forest, lake and surrounding greenery were a pleasure to walk around as well. Owner, Russell our host was incredibly generous and helpful, always available via text and even stocked the bar full of beers. I highly recommend it and we will be back! Oliver's Travels were also very easy to book through and made the entire process a breeze!"

    "Well Colleton Hall and East Wing was a truly perfect choice for our large family gathering! There were 16 of us (3 x generations) getting together to celebrate my sisters 40th birthday and it really was splendid! Russell & Richard were so helpful leading up to our holiday, letting us know all the things that we do not need to bring with us! Plenty of toilet rolls, condiments, hand soap, shower gels etc which really reduced what we needed to bring along. My grocery shopping was delivered before we all arrived and put away for us! On arrival, Richard and Russell were there to greet us and could not have been friendlier or more welcoming! By the end of the tour of the house we wanted them to stay with us for the weekend! To top it all off, our wonderful hosts left us a magnum of Prosecco, chocolates and some chilled beers... now that’s how to greet guests! The house is beautiful and stylish, yet cosy and comfortable. We will definitely be going back to Colleton Hall."

    "It is a lovely property in a fantastic location, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. The amazing kitchen was such a sociable space and the separate dining room and lounge were lovely too. Each of the bedrooms were uniquely decorated to a high standard. The grounds and lake were a bonus, and the children thoroughly enjoyed canoeing on the water. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful in the build up to our stay. They recommended local places to visit and even offered to book restaurants on our behalf. We celebrated our father’s 80th birthday and the owners helped us organise the fireworks as a surprise. We would definitely recommend this fabulous property."

    "My husband booked a trip for our family to Colleton Hall for my 30th birthday, and it was a trip I will always remember. It was nice and easy to get to, and as soon as we arrived, Russell welcomed us in to his beautiful home, and gave us the grand tour. We were blown away by how beautiful the house was, and just how big it was. Russell was so helpful and explained where the best walks were, and how everything in the house worked. It made the stay really enjoyable, because we were made to feel so welcome, and well aquatinted with the house. It is so well equipped, with everything you could need, and more. We have young children, and for them the trip was like Christmas and birthdays rolled into one. Being able to have all their family under one roof, with room to gallop about and things to explore, was really amazing. They loved spotting the deer in the garden, stomping about in their wellies and rain coats, and getting to sleep in bunk beds. And for the older members of our party, they all felt very comfortable and could access everything they needed easily. Like adjusting temperature and everyone having their own bathrooms. Another highlight of the trip was our lunch at ‘The Stag’ pub - as recommended and kindly booked by Russell and Richard. It was so close to the house, and we had a fantastic meal there. The owners were really friendly, and accommodating to our varying dietary requirements. The food was brilliant, and it was really warm and cosy in there. Our family always seemed to congregate in the main kitchen, and there was plenty of space for everyone. Being in there first thing in the morning, with a hot cup of tea, watching the Deer and stag wonder across, was the best way to start the day. We just really loved this trip - and wouldn’t hesitate to book again in the near future. Can’t recommend it enough."

    "We have just returned from a week's stay at Colleton Hall with an extended family group of 10 people ranging in ages from 7 to 87 and we had the most AMAZING time! We have taken an annual family holiday together in various different locations but always in large houses for the last 15 years and Colleton Hall is without doubt the most spectacular property we have ever stayed in. The house is beautiful - enormous and grand but also cosy and really comfortable. It has been beautifully renovated and the owners have thought of everything - a really well stocked kitchen, pool and table football for the kids, board games for the older generations, sonos throughout the house and a baby grand piano for the musically minded, televisions in every room, beautiful en suite bathrooms - the list goes on! And the grounds are simply stunning - a huge expansive garden which our children adored, a lake with a two man canoe which provided hours of fun and private woodlands which seemed to go on and on - this is the English countryside at its absolute best! The owners are delightful and so so helpful - from booking the (WONDERFUL) local pub (the Stag Inn) for us for a couple of meals during our stay, to unpacking an online supermarket shop, welcoming us with prosecco and chocolates and providing tons of really helpful information about the local area, Russell and Richard couldn't have done more to ensure that we had a great stay. There is tons to do in the local area - you're spoilt for choice for beaches within an hour - we had a great day out at Woolacombe beach and loved Knightshayes National Trust house and garden - a fascinating gothic property with glorious grounds with a brilliant maze trail for the children. We also did a circular walk at Tarr Steps - a spectacular nature reserve with an ancient stone bridge in Exmoor - only half an hour away. I cannot recommend this place enough - we will definitely be back! Thank you Russell and Richard for a wonderful holiday."

    "I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at Colleton Hall, a beautiful house which felt like a luxury hotel. In the bedrooms and bathrooms, the attention to detail and care was so clear, they were a delight. The kitchen, dining areas and sitting room were perfect for all our different needs and moods. The large kitchen and pantry were ideal for our group and made cooking and eating together a real joy. In the library there was the joy of a fascinating range of books that could have kept us busy for the whole visit. Around the house we all commented on the artwork, again a fascinating range of styles and artists. The Sonos system in every room was such a bonus, everyone downloaded the app and we had music on tap to meet every taste, which was deeply appreciated by the younger members of our group. The extensive grounds, fields and the woods were ideal for our two dogs, who had a ball as between us we spent hours throwing balls and sticks. The lake and the canoe were well used, an activity which did become a bit competitive for younger members of our group! We were lucky to meet our hosts Russell and Richard, they could not have made us any more welcome. Overall, a fabulous house in a wonderful setting, thank you for helping us discover it."

    "We recently spent a long weekend at Colleton Hall. There were 14 in our party ranging from ages 1 to 92 and everyone had a superb time. The accommodation is both elegant and functional. It has all the sophistication of a large Georgian residence with a sweeping staircase and generous room sizes ,but it has been so tastefully renovated that in terms of modern conveniences you could be renting an up market ultra modern house. Unusually for a holiday rental property, no expense has been spared in the renovations. Everything is in good taste, from the tiles throughout the ground floor, to the fittings in the bathrooms and all three kitchens. My 25 year old nephew said having a bath in the main bathroom overlooking the grounds will be a memory that will stay with him for a long time. The rooms are complemented by the carefully chosen art, many beautiful objects and vases of fresh flowers. And then there are the grounds. All I can say is wow. The lake is magical. The young members of the party, as well as taking the canoe out, had a swim in the lake. We took the opportunity of walking through the woods that are also owned by Colleton and just loved the peace and tranquility. Finally, being greeted by the owners of Colleton, Russell and Richard, in such a warm way set the weekend off to a great start. The fact they left the fridges stocked with beers (which I am sure the youngsters in the party used) as well as top class champagne (which we ensured was not touched) shows just how far they will go to try and give their guests a first class experience. We used the chef from DineIndulge for the meal on the Saturday evening and, this too, was a success. I would definitely recommend Colleton to anyone wanting a large, beautiful and sophisticated house in a rural setting. The consensus was that it was the best standard we have ever rented."
    Amanda & John ‐ 4 Jan 2019
    "We had a perfect time at this lovely house set in rolling countryside. We partied with our friends and family at New Year and I can honestly say that it was one of the best times, such a warm friendly house with charming rooms, plenty of bathrooms, super kitchen(s) and views of the lake and the fields beyond. There are plenty of country walks nearby, ideal for us and all our dogs, we had 5 dogs with us in total and because of the sheer size of the place it really was no problem at all to accommodate us all with our all boots, clothes and belongings. The owners of the property are very genial and welcoming and were on hand next door in case of any issues and for guidance of where to go, they recommended a marvellous little pub in the village nearby. Would definitely recommend for a family get together."
    Allie ‐ 16 Nov 2018
    "From the moment we stepped through the doors at Colleton Hall, we knew we were very lucky to be staying somewhere so special. It was late autumn and log fires crackled in the huge fireplaces in the large, beautifully-fitted kitchen and the spacious drawing room, making the first impression one of warmth and welcome. The owners, who, surprisingly are not interior designers, have lovingly restored this gem of a small, 'stately home' with incredible flair and attention to authentic detail, whilst including the modern time-saving luxuries we all don't want to live without when on holiday. Each of the six tastefully-decorated bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom with high-end fittings and a hot water system that ensures no one goes without a decent shower! Outside, there is plenty of parking in the gravel driveway. Beyond the house, a terrace gives way to the gardens which reach down to a lake and out to woods and fields - ideal settings for barbecues, walks and picnics. This is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday - or long weekend - away from the fast pace of city life, but close enough to a good pub, restaurant and amenities - if you can bear to drag yourselves away from the beauty and comfort of the Hall. We loved it so much, we've already booked to go back with our family this Summer."
    Jane ‐ 18 Oct 2018
    "Colleton was a delightful space for our family and friends gathering - modern kitchen with high ceilings and large windows, elegant dining room, cosy drawing room with piano and open fire. The boot room was great for the dogs - a room in itself and great for kicking off the boots after walking through the woods and over the private grounds. Enjoyed the week in style and comfort. Thank you."
    Jo ‐ 18 Sep 2018
    "Booked Colleton Hall for a 40th birthday weekend who are also a bunch of die hard Exeter Chiefs fans. Colleton is only half an hour from Sandy Park so we were able to celebrate in an idyllic location and see the Chiefs have a home win! Colleton is pure luxury, has stunning grounds to wander around in and the owners are fantastic hosts."
    Maggie ‐ 7 Sep 2018
    "Colleton Hall had all the magic of an exciting and adventurous book. Surrounded by the most beautiful countryside landscape, it also felt as though I had stepped into a painting that had come alive! For the week I spent at Colleton, it felt as though I had experienced what the real world should be like."
    Sean ‐ 7 Sep 2018
    "We had a huge family reunion at Colleton Hall – an absolutely stunning house and grounds to stay in. Coming from Australia, it was an absolute delight to walk around the private woods and we even got to see a herd of red deer. The hosts were a pleasure to deal with and made sure our stay was hassle free. I would recommend Colleton Hall for a long relaxing break and to take in the beautiful Devon countryside and rugged North Coast. Exeter was close by and fun to visit too."
