Lower Coombe Royal
Reviewed May 13, 2011

This was our fourth stay at Lower Coombe Royal and as ever we had a wonderfully relaxing time. It's all the extra touches and attention to detail that never fail to amaze us, from the fresh flowers to the complimentary toiletries. This time we stayed in the 3-bedroom Coach House where the living space is upstairs and opens out onto a charming private terrace overlooking the orchard. The beds are very comfortable, the open-plan living area is sunny and beautifully fitted out and the bathrooms are stylish, especially the shower in the en suite, where you can sit on a wooden bench and wash all the stresses of the day away. We slipped down here for a quiet weekend without the kids, but the Coach House is big enough for a family of four, plus the grandparents! Richard, the Estate Manager, is charming and keen to help with any queries, but also very discreet. The other accommodation on this estate is in an elegant Edwardian mansion. We've stayed in the Lawn Apartment (for 4) and in the Garden Rooms (for 2) which were both wonderful. The Royal House takes 7, so we are hoping to take friends or family sometime, so we can sample the delights of this magnificent accommodation too! If you love south Devon, this is the perfect place to stay.

We stayed in The Garden Rooms. The attention to detail was almost unbelievable, with a strong bias to ecological products and services. Everything we could want for self-catering was there, it was well heated and with a log burner and supply of logs.

In a little secluded and delightful valley, all the properties were in an 8 acre garden, an old nursery and full of specimen plants. Very wild still in places added to the charm. Lots of children's play areas and equipment.

We sneaked a look into the Royal House and the huge kid's playroom there was just amazing.

Parking was very close, but there were quite a few steps up to the Garden Rooms which might be difficult for some, however the Estate Manager was there to help us with our bags and anything we needed. We were asked to recycle all our food waste, bottles and paper in the discreet bins - but we do that at home.

Most of all for us, several Devon beaches were really close at hand (10 minutes drive), and the shops (Tesco and lots of small local shops) in Kingsbridge about a ten minute walk.

No negatives.
