Rural, quiet location but with easy access to pub and towns. An attractive area for exploring with interesting coastal resorts close to hand. Clean rooms, friendly and caring service with good breakfast. Pretty garden to sit out in. Thank you.

Best to deal with the negatives up front: there are no ensuites here - the bathroom facilities are shared - and this B&B is half a mile along one of the narrowest lanes in Devon. If you can get past these issues you'll find Higher Coombe Farm to be delightful. Although just a couple of miles from Sidmouth, this B&B... More

My son and I stayed here three nights. I can't praise it and the Farmers highly enough. It is a little bit of Eden for this American traveler--beautiful pastures, quiet, with views of birds, rabbits, and of course sheep, including very young lambs. The rooms were wonderfully furnished and tea supplies restocked daily. There is also a sitting room with... More

This is a B&B we will return to again. The welcome was superb, the room well appointed and supplied with everything we needed and more. The location is superb; up a narrow lane to a quiet peaceful spot, but not far from the sea. Finally the breakfasts were excellent. Well cooked, fresh produce that delivered satisfaction in every mouthful.

We found a warm welcome awaiting us for our two night stay and it was so peaceful. We chose this B & B as it was near to Sidmouth where we were visiting friends and family. I had phoned in advance to advise the farmer's wife that I was coeliac and asked whether that would prove difficult for breakfast. I... More

We travelled to Devon for a family wedding and decided to stay here at this working sheep farm as it was very close to the church. Higher Coombe is off the beaten track (hence lovely and quiet) but a local pub a short walk away offers great food. A warm welcome and a very comfortable, clean room. Breakfast was excellent....

We stayed 2 nights here and loved it. Hosts very friendly and welcoming. Our double room clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Breakfast was great. We loved the quietness of the countryside and watching the dogs and sheep in the fields from our window. I found a peaceful spot in the garden to read my book. We'll certainly be... More

I stayed at Higher Coombe Farm during the last week in August 2010 and can certainly say it was a very pleasant experience. I had driven down to the farm from Berkshire in atrocious conditions and was met by Kerstin Farmer who made me feel very welcome and who served up hot coffee and biscuits which was a very nice...

Quiet location tucked away off the beaten track. Takes a bit of finding at first and mobile phone was patchy down there. Used this B&B as a base for going to a family function but imagine it would be a nice place for a quiet retreat and base for walking or cycling or touring the area. Hosts were most welcoming...

We raise sheep and were touring several sheep farms in the area. We stayed at this delightful B&B with Peter Farmer and his Swedish Wife. They where very gracious .... we arrived late in the evening & had not eaten ... they called a local pub to see if the kitchen was still open .... and gave us directions. When... More
