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.


With the stunning backdrop of Dartmoor National Park and the facilities of the nearby bustling city, your new home at Mayhew Gardens makes the most of this desirable location on the outskirts of Plymouth.

Plympton is home to activities and events both families and couples can enjoy. For nearby shops and eateries, head to the Ridgeway in the town centre, where you will find high street names as well as independents, and a traditional pub.

Saltram House, one of many National Trust sites in the region, provides a window into the past and has exceptional views of the Plym Estuary. For family walks or cycle rides, Plymbridge Woods is a 200-acre playground that opens out onto the moors.

Plympton offers a choice of both primary and secondary schools. With excellent road and rail access from Plymouth including a mainline route to London and the A38, you can explore the sights of Devon, Cornwall and beyond. There are a number of local doctors surgeries in the town and both Derriford Hospital and Nuffield Health are in easy reach.

For a spot of relaxation, visit the Gaia Spa at the historic Boringdon Hall, or test your skills on the golf course at Boringdon Park Golf Club or Elfordleigh Golf and Country Club.

The nearby city of Plymouth, less than a 20 minute drive, has plenty of stunning waterfront destinations to discover, like the historic Royal William Yard and Barbican, where you can find a superb range of restaurants. With impressive coastal views of the Sound and Drake’s Island, Plymouth Hoe is a real highlight. Take a tour up historic Smeaton’s Tower for fantastic 360° views of the city.

Combining the best of Devon’s beautiful countryside with a bustling city, Mayhew Gardens offers an exceptional place to call your home.
