“A real home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Finding a holiday for a family of 5 + 2 dogs that a) meets our high standards for accommodation, and b) doesn't require a second mortgage, is a regular annual challenge - and one that Lower Coombe Royal completely met.

We stayed at the Royal House at Lower Coombe Royal over the Easter 2012 break (just before the 'drought' rain set in) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The house had big comfortable rooms and was beautifully furnished.

With an 8yr old, 6yr old and a 4 month old baby in tow, bringing everything we needed was always going to be an impossible ask - fortunately the house came equipped with everything we could ever possibly need, including a tailored welcome basket with children (and baby) friendly food and treats. The traditional style playroom was a really lovely touch, and gave the kids somewhere to relax and unwind after a day exploring the beaches.

Situated in Kingsbridge, the house was really well placed for local amenities and shops - plus beautiful dog-friendly beaches a short drive away at Bigbury-on-Sea.

We have already recommended Lower Coombe Royal to family and friends, and hope to return ourselves in the near future.

We stayed in the Garden rooms over Easter and it was perfect in every way for the couple of us. Private, well layed out and very comfortable. Susi could not have been more helpful before we turned up and Richard stayed around to welcome us when we showed up. perfectly situated for Salcombe, secluded beaches, pony trekking on Dartmoor.........
We will return!

Our stay in the Garden Rooms was very relaxing and enjoyable. The luxury accommodation was comfortable and spacious and fitted out with everything you coould possibly need. We had a relaxing aftenoon basking in the late afternoon sun on the south facing terrace. It was a short walk into Kngsbridge to eat out and Sacmbe is a short drive away.

This was our second stay at the Royal house in Lower Coombe Royal. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we could not wait to return. We were so pleased to return to the wonderfully clean house, the friendly staff and quiet setting of the house. The fantastic play room in the Royal House remained a favourite with our two year old daughter (and her parents). The House itself is so spacious and grand inside, yet private and tucked away, that it really makes you feel like you are getting away from all the stresses of life. For instance, when you wake in the mornings, all you can hear is the running stream outside the house (and the quacking of the two resident ducks!). So peaceful.

On this trip, we also took our parents, who stayed in the spare room. They particularly loved the house and the gardens here and enjoyed many quiet walks round the estate on a daily basis. For us, the entertainment and facilities provided for our two year old (and her six week old baby brother) really made this break complete, as it meant that we did not have to "move a mountain" in order to get away for a quick break.

We cannot wait to return and would recommend anyone to stay here.

Royal House is a fabulous family home and it has truly been a delight to stay there. It is appointed to exceptional standards. The quality of furnishings and extra touches provided throughout reflect the warm hospitality at this luxury five star self-catering property on the beautiful Lower Coombe Royal Estate, on the edge of Kingsbridge. Idyllic accommodation from which to explore this outstanding area of natural beauty. A very peaceful location with beautiful views.

I would just like to express my thanks to Susi, and Estate Manager Richard for making our stay in the Lawn Apartment at Lower Coombe Royal truly exceptional. They have provided every possible need for a relaxing and superb break, in wonderful conditions. Great for eating out in Kingsbridge, without taking the car, and many wonderful beaches to visit in the surrounding areas, especially Bantham and Bigbury on Sea. If the suns out take advantage of the wonderful walks by the sea. A true escape from it all. Thank you again.

Lower Coombe Royal has a beautiful relaxed feeling about it. Great accommodation which is fitted to a very high standard with so many extras for both adults and children. Wonderful grounds for exploring and playing in. All this backed by an amazing team of people and a great ethos. It felt like home to us.
