Welcome to South Coombe Farm Holiday Cottages

South Coombe is perfectly situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Devon, some 600 feet above sea level, and is set on rolling hills in the beautiful Devon Countryside. With Exmoor National Park to the North, and Dartmoor National Park a short distance to the South, and many of the coastal resorts within easy reach, although lots of our guests choose to spend their days with us, if you do want to see more of Devon, we are perfectly placed for you to do just that. It has both country cottages, suitable for parties of between two and six, and bed and breakfast accommodation of the highest standard. We are lucky to be able to call South Coombe our home and we invite you to share in the peace, tranquillity and harmony that it instils in everyone who visits.

The farmhouse itself, which houses the bed and breakfast accommodation, is over four hundred years old and is a "chocolate box" Devon thatched cottage of immense character and beauty. The accommodation has its own private entrance and walled garden. The bed and breakfast suite will sleep up to three people comfortably and has tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridge and television. (Quality in Tourism rating 4 diamonds)

The four country cottages, each individual, are set within the grounds of a beautiful listed 16th century thatched farmhouse, ooze charm and yet have all the facilities of modern living. All of the properties have wood-burning stoves (coal in Jonquil Cottage), character beams and open plan living space. Each of the cottages has its own designated garden area with places to sit and barbecue.

The swimming pool complex, completed in 2006, houses a 10m x 5m indoor heated swimming pool, a sauna, a games room and a fully equipped gym. Situated on the site of an Old Dutch barn, the complex also has an outdoor patio where guests can relax in the open air.

Once a working farm and now a haven for wildlife, South Coombe is surrounded by fifteen acres of land where guests may wander at their leisure. Grassy spots along the stream that runs through part of the farm, and the lawns adjacent to the duck ponds make lovely settings for impromptu picnics.

Within the lovely old cider orchard, there is a children's activity play area with slides, swings and climbing frames making this just the right place for children to have fun. We have strategically placed a picnic table adjacent to the play area so that parents can sit and drink a glass of wine whilst supervising their children!

Situated between North and South Devon, we are within easy reach of Exmoor, Dartmoor and the coastal resorts. So, although lots of our guests choose to spend their days with us, if you do want to see more of Devon, we are perfectly placed for you to do just that.

Come and join us for a relaxing break soon!
