Property Description

Peaceful setting. Idyllic and tranquil surroundings
If you are looking for a tranquil, relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle then this is the place for you. Coombe House Cottages (refs W1400, W1497 and W1498) are situated in a designated AONB in the heart of rural Devon, situated in a sheltered south facing valley off the beaten track and surrounded by rolling meadows and woodland. The abundance of wildlife is fabulous, and the lawns and lake to the front are very pretty in the summer with brightly flowering azaleas and rhododendrons. Each property has its own trestle table for al fresco dining in the sunshine. The cosy cottages have been converted from original stone farm barns and retain much original character. The delight of holidaying here is the quietness of the place. This little complex of properties is set in 33 acres of beautiful countryside and stands at the head of a broad valley. Across from Coombe House (ref W42221) is a delightful natural pond, thriving with wildlife including butterflies and dragonflies. The cottages are positioned to the rear of Coombe House and each offers very well appointed accommodation. The owner places fresh flowers in each property and guests can buy fresh herbs and vegetables from the owner (seasonal), as well as flowers, as and when available. The complex lies within 4 miles of Dartmoor National Park and within easy reach of some of the cleanest beaches in England (Bigbury and Blackpool Sands). The coastal paths offer superb walks and magnificent scenery. There are also many Green Lane walks, one of which runs through part of the estate. Several National Trust properties and gardens are nearby. Totnes and Dartmouth with their award-winning restaurants are a short distance away. The beautiful gardens feature a lake, a stream and small pond where wildlife abounds. As you stroll around the gardens you will probably encounter moorhens, pheasants or ducks, and if you take an evening walk in the woods you may catch a glimpse of a badger, fox or deer. Bird life is varied, look out for buzzards, sparrowhawks, woodpeckers and owls. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Ground floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. First floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen. Beams throughout. Can be linked with property W1497 to accommodate up to 10 guests.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property was in a lovely but remote location. It was extremely well equipped and the owners were very helpful. Aug 2012.
  2. The property is very comfortable, in a lovely secluded valley, with no phone signal or Wi-Fi, so total peace! Very cosy and snug, all conveniences to hand. Very obliging and helpful owners nearby. The gardens and woodland/fields surrounding the property are beautiful, and bountiful with fruit in Autumn! Only drawback is the tiny narrow lanes on the approach to the property, but you soon get used to them, and learn to be careful on the blind bends!! Property is well worth the effort to get there. Owners couldn’t be kinder or more helpful. Definitely worth a visit, and this won’t be our last one to the same cottage! Sept 2011.
  3. The cottage was very comfortable. Although it took some getting used to driving in the lanes, as it is rather secluded. Lots of space to get away from it all. Really enjoyed our stay! Any future visitors make sure that you follow instructions on how to get there and ignore your sat nav, or you will get lost. Aug 2011.
  4. Lovely peaceful setting central for attractions, owners very friendly. July 2011.
  5. Lovely location.Very quiet & relaxing. Owners live on-site & are very helpful. July 2011.
  6. Lovely setting, very quiet, little to no phone signal. Sept 2010.
  7. Good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely location. Aug 2010.
  8. A very practical property set in a lovely tranquil location. April 2010.
  9. Attractive location, very peaceful and off the beaten track. Great view from the living area. Very spacious living/kitchen/diner area with plenty natural light. Bedrooms are a good size with open beam ceilings. Lots of bird and animal activity around property. April 2010.
  10. The accommodation was very clean, in a beautiful setting and just what we were looking for. Aug 2009.
  11. Cottage was located in the country but had easy access to major towns and visitor attractions. Feb 2008.
  12. The cottage was exactly as described and would recommend it to anyone. Sept 2007.
  13. The fields at the back of the property were good for the children to play on and run about. They particularly liked Oscar the dog very friendly. Seeing the Buzzards flying above made you feel very much in the countryside and it was very quiet. The accommodation had a holiday feel to it. Aug 2007.
  14. Had a great time and would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for some peace and quite with shops and beaches not far away. Looking forward to going back. Sept 2007.
  15. By far and away the best cottage we have ever booked with your company. Beautiful location, helpful owners - a blissful retreat. June 2006.
