Thank you Coombe Bank Guest House, we had a wonderful night with you on Saturday. Lovely room, light and bright, very clean, excellent facilities and lovely en suite. Delighted to have my dietary needs accommodated at breakfast, thank you! Breakfast was lovely, service with a friendly smile and a chat. Wonderful walk into town, along the river under the trees,...

Coombe Bank is ideally located if you want to visit the Donkey Sanctuary as it is only a short drive away. It is also really easy to walk into Sidmouth (approx 20 min walk). We totally agree with all other Reviewers that the breakfast is EXCELLENT- locally sourced ingredients and a great selection.

We stopped here in August. The B&B is out of town, so prepare yourself for a 20-25 minute walk. The B&B itself was on a quiet street with amble parking for all guests. Our room was well decorated but could of benefited from a good dusting. The on-suite had everything you need if not on the small side. We asked... More

Thanks for your late review. We are always say that the town is a 20/25 minute walk away but most of the walk is along the National Trust Byes Area which follows the River Sid to the Beach. Many of our guests thoroughly enjoy this walk. We are lucky as we are not troubled by seagulls as our friends in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the weekend which we booked through a accommodation website on their rating recommendation. When we arrived we found the location and parking facilities were not desirable,had to reverse, into parking space,off main narrow road with parked vehicles opposite,with obstructive views.(See photos) The property,which I understand was built in 1928, is located on a...

We don't do a lot of B&B stopovers and so, can't claim to know what to expect. However it can be said that our experience at Coombe Bank was a mixed experience. The landlord was friendly, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good and plenty. On the down side.... The bathroom was very compact and there was no... More
