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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The owners were there to welcome us. It is in the middle of nowhere so very peaceful and relaxing. June 2012.
  2. Beautiful location, though off the beaten track only a short drive to various towns and lovely beaches. Cottage very clean and comfortable. June 2012.
  3. Ideal for couples or families who like being hidden away inland, but the beautiful beaches of Bantham, Bigbury, South Milton, Hope Cove & Slapton are only about 30 minutes drive away out of season. This area gets very busy in peak season, but it is beautiful & well worth a visit in the spring or autumn. The location of the cottage was lovely & the owners very friendly & welcoming. Oct 2011.
  4. A very nice cottage - roomy and well appointed. The grounds are very attractive. It is remote and very quiet, but the beaches etc of the South Hams are easy to get to. Access to the cottage involves over 2 miles of narrow lane with few passing places. Fortunately there doesn’t seem to be much traffic. Sept 2011.
  5. A very comfortable cottage. April 2011.
  6. We loved our cottage. It was down in the depths of Devon but once we found it, it was better than we had hoped. So clean and comfortable. Everything was there and other bits we didnt think about. I loved the fact they are hot on recyling and encouraged you to do the same. Owners’ greeting was great and they were so helpful. Cottage was very light and airy and I have recommended this to our friends and family. Would love to come back in a couple of years time. It is situated very well with Dartmorth and the local beaches. Very happy holiday. Sep 2010.
  7. Warm welcome and wonderful accommodation. Feb 2010.
  8. Excellent cottage and a beautiful location for a quiet holiday, very pleasant hosts. May 2009.
