Mayhew Gardens

Nestled between the Devon countryside and nearby city of Plymouth lies Colebrook, Plympton, where an exceptional collection of new homes awaits. Brought to you by award-winning developer, Burrington Estates New Homes, these superb properties exude luxury at every turn.

The development takes its name from the Mayhew family, who played an important role in the expansion of Colebrook and were responsible for nearby villages like Woodford and Boringdon.

Mayhew Gardens was originally the site of a splendid mid-19th century property, known as Colebrook House, whose impressive grounds featured grand turrets and a garden boasting an abundance of rare flowers. Through Burrington Estates New Homes’ transformation of the grounds, the magnificent homes at Mayhew Gardens will offer premium living in Colebrook once again.

Steeped in mining history, the ancient stannary town of Plympton dates back to the 11th century and was first featured in the Domesday book. Today, it is a thriving place with an array of events and activities throughout the year. Colebrook itself is a small village community within easy reach of popular Plymouth city centre and the A38.
