We stayed at Combas Farm for a week, arriving home today, 26th June. It's all true, Gwen is a wonderful host. Her 'girls' are lovely too. They all work so well together so that any help or advice you need is provided. Breakfast was 5 star, my husband and I loved the homemade yogurt and compotes, flowers from the garden... More

Very homely with all that you need from a B&B, Gwen is a fantastic host and makes you feel at home right away. Breakfast is great with home made yogurt, cereal, fruit juice and jam made with Gwen's home grown fruit. The garden is beautiful as is the whole area. We would certainly recommend a stay at Combas Farm.

Stayed here overnight while doing the SWCP. Set deep in the countryside with a beautiful garden to sit out in to enjoy tea and cakes supplied by Gwen. She is a delightful host and made us feel so welcome with a wonderful breakfast to set us up for the next day's walking. Martin/Sheila

Thank you for your review. Although stays are brief guests walking the coast path do love a hot shower and a sustaining breakfast which we aim to provide. My "girls" do appreciate recognition of their efforts - Thanks. Maybe a longer stop next time? Gwen More

We stayed at Combas farm last night. We had a very welcoming reception from Gwen with a pot of tea and a lovely homemade fruit cake, in a besutiful English garden. Our room was very comfortable with a bathroom that a big city hotel would be proud of. 8 minutes walk down a country lane to a local pub who... More

Travelling as a group of 3 old schools friends on a walking tour on Devon this was a real find. A super welcome, comfortable and cosy rooms and real character in every aspect. This is a great stop for both atmosphere and comfort.

Right in between Croyde and putsborough, within 15mins walking distance. Very friendly and... More

So pleased to be able to book here last minute, given the standard of the accommodation and that it is so handy for Putsborough. Such a refreshing change too not to be hit with a single supplement and not have to contend with a 2-night minimum booking. The place is a home-from-home, full of creature comforts (electric blanket, stocked bookshelf... More

So comfortable, lovely place, really comfortable bedrooms, lovely breakfasts (home made yoghourt and we had fresh raspberries picked from the garden) very friendly staff and owners, best B and B we have ever stayed in. Thank you Gwen and John

Comfy beds, beautiful scenery, friendly staff, a good price and delicious breakfast. That alone is enough to get a 5 star review, but on top of this, Gwen took the time out of her day to drive us to the wedding we were attending when we had trouble booking a taxi. Really, it's hard to see why you'd want to... More
