My husband and I have just returned from a weekend break to Lancombe Country cottages for my birthday. We cannot give Caroline and the team enough praise. It really was a home from home. We stayed in the Bride cottage which is light and airy and had everything we could have wanted or needed for the weekend. We bought along... More

We have just spent the last 4 days for my husbands birthday in the Bride cottage which was idyllic. The cottage is small but so cosy especially with the four poster bed. It is the most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in and Caroline and Geoff are the perfect hosts. The shower wasn't performing as it should and... More

My husband, two boys (aged 3 and 8) and I are just back from a wonderful week at Lancombe Country Cottages. It’s our first self-catering holiday since buying our campervan a few years ago, which we got because we were fed up of paying a lot of money for holiday lets that weren’t as clean or as nice as our...

We have just returned from a fabulous short break at Lancombe....the scenery was stunning, the fairy garden magical and the hens clucky! We stayed in a very clean, well equipped, comfy cottage and the owners and staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Many thanks, we shall return! Sarah and Ricky

A big thank you to Caroline and Family for making us feel so welcome on our second visit to Lancombe. Unfortunately our stay was only for the weekend, but we made the most of it enjoying the amazing views from our cottage and walking our dog through the woods. The chickens are lovely and their eggs are delicious. The indoor... More
