This is the second time we have stayed and just like the first time Chris looked after all of our wishes superbly. Chris is a great host and made a real effort in making us all feel very welcome even our 15 month old daughter was well catered for with cuddly toys and games a plenty. Thanks Chris we will... More

If you are much over six feet tall, you should bring a building site helmet. Coombe House is what you would expect from an older house in the area, with many of its rooms and features retaining their original size and feel. The on-suite toilet and shower in my room were about the size you would expect in a travelling... More

Thank you Malcolm - I'm still smiling from all your amusing comments! I'm pleased you obeyed house rules with the whippet!! Her large eyes are very appealing. For those future guests who do not know the house, you were staying in the Garden room - the smallest room in the house. Good luck with your house hunting and thanks again... More

Thanks to Chris for the relaxing break in her beautiful home. We were warmly welcomed with home made cake and coffee around the kitchen table and treated more like friends than guests. The room was really comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. A real pleasure to stay and we'll be back.

Simply the most comfortable, relaxing and friendly place to stay. The room was beautiful but it is the generosity of the owner, Chris, that makes this B&B a cut above anywhere else. The breakfast was worthy of a top restaurant and you will not need to eat at lunch!

Words to describe Chris and Combe House - warm, friendly, helpful, welcoming, convivial, kind and congenial. She is also a great homecook, supplying freshly baked bread, cakes, jams and marmalade adding that extra dimension to a great breakfast and overall hospitality, nothing is too much trouble. Our room was clean and comfortable with all our needs catered for. All in... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at this warm and friendly B&B run by a great host. My room was very comfortable with en-suite facilities and Queen sized bed . The room looked over the back garden and was nice and quiet at night. Chris went out of her way to find parking for us as there was a... More

Our second visit this time taking a friend who also fell in love with it. Chris is such a warm, wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is one of the best we have had with fruit compote, nuts, yoghurt and home made jam and marmalade. If you fancy traditional it is top quality and all served... More

We cannot sing enough praises of this B&B. Chris is so welcoming a perfect host. Location great, room great and the best breakfast I have every had in any hotel or B&B. The room had comfortable king sized bed with loads of good quality pillows. The shower and toiletries were all top notch. Just a great find.

Christine is just the best host ever. Nothing was too much for her including with helping with the luggage and standing in the road to point out the car parking as she had noticed us looking for the Bed & Breakfast.
