I bought this KGB deal last year for a two day break and we only booked it two weeks, when I rang I was told very apologetically that they only had a twin bedded room left but we accepted it as our voucher was running out! We turned up on a Saturday afternoon and received a lovely warm welcome from Catherine, Gareth and the team. We had room 16 with very low ceiling so my 6'6" husband had great fun trying to limbo around but this was a beautiful old house and everything we expected and more.
We took along our retired Guide Dog 'Jangle' as I had inquired earlier if she would be welcome. Jangle had a fantastic time starting with a beautiful walk up the valley that was full of snowdrops and wonderful new smells and sticks! The staff loved her and she even got to meet the resident cat called Milo, but only briefly as Milo was not to keen!
After the walk we returned to a cream team and a relaxing afternoon as we watched 6 Nations Rugby in the bar area courtesy of Gareth the owner, a small group of us enjoyed watching England win with a lovely open fire in the back ground! (TV not usually there but just for special events).
We had a lovely meal in the evening and we sent our special compliments to the Chef as everything had been cooked and presented to perfection.
After diner we were asked if we would like to move to a new bedroom the next day as there would be new rooms available, we had not asked or made any comments about our previous room as we had both slept really well but we were offered Room 1 and it was lovely. On Sunday afternoon we returned to find we had been moved to a much larger room with a massive Super King size bed, absolute bliss!
We enjoyed a Lazy Sunday lunch in the evening for £20 each an excellent choice and again the food was exceptional.
Dogs can stay with owners during meals if you don't mind eating in the bar area and we were happy to do this as we knew our dog would lay under the table quietly. You can also leave them in your room but as it was her holiday as well she stayed with us and hoovered the floor. It was nice to see others guests dressing up and eating in the restaurant area but no one felt over or under-dressed.
We had to be away early on Monday morning so a swift beautifully cooked breakfast and porridge was served and away we went feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Thank you to Gareth, Catherine and all the well chosen lovely team at Combe House, compliments to you all from the 'Guide Dog Lady' (Keep my card safe in case you fancy rehoming a guide dog in the future!) Well done all and thanks from all three of us.
Dog owners: Dogs welcome at the 'Hairy Dog Pub' in Minehead as well if you are going that way for lunch!
