SITE FOR SALE
Proposed woodland retreat for sale. Designed specifically to provide suitable accommodation for people with varying degrees of physical disabilities, the rehabilitation of injured people whether from the public sector or the Armed forces, to enjoy respite, transition and holidays with their carers, families and friends.
The proposed development would be one of the first of its kind in the country. Planning permission has been granted to provide these unprecedented facilities for this specialist market to include six woodland cottages, a central guest facility and reception, together with accommodation for fully trained on site management. Each cottage will have the versatility to be 2 single bedroom units or 1 x 2 or 3 bedroom units and will each feature 75 sq. meters of covered terraces overlooking the woodland valley and stream.
Coltscombe Wood was specifically selected for its tranquillity and location to provide a retreat to a market to which simple privileges would be otherwise unavailable. It is intelligently and understatedly designed to be the first five star, completely inclusive, universally accessible holiday, respite and transition retreat in the UK.
Coltscombe Wood, nestled in a charming coastal wooded copse, less than a mile from Slapton Sands is located in one of the most beautiful and popular holiday areas in the country. This manageable ancient woodland has an interesting mix of habitats with a small stream running along the valley bottom with an attractive pond to the south side. It is the perfect place for this unique concept for a universally accessible retreat in which and from which disabled guests would be able to taste a hands on experience of the natural beauty of the coastal surroundings which had been until now, unavailable to them.
Accessible Tourism is the “largest untapped market in the tourist industry” with a spending power of 12.4 billion – Great Britain Tourist Survey (GBTV). Paul Nadin, MD of Disabled Holidays, the largest specialist holiday booking agency reported: “Over the past twelve months our organisation has been unable to find availability for 19% of our customers wishing to holiday in the UK. The difficulty in finding accommodation in popular destinations like Devon and Cornwall is more like 50%.”
Purchasers are welcome to inspect the site from the adjoining road, although access cannot be allowed onto site without prior permission and any purchasers entering the site do so at their own risk. We are happy to accompany viewings by appointment with us the vendor’s sole agents.
