Hotel Description
Imagine a wildly romantic Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor set in 3,500 acres of one of Devon's finest country estates, close to the sea for long coastal walks, yet just a short drive from the historic city of Exeter. Beautiful Arabian horses and pheasants roam freely as you approach Combe House along a mile of winding drive. This charming country house hotel lies in Gittisham, the film location for a Rosemunde Pilcher novel and described by Prince Charles as the "Ideal English Village" with its pretty Devon cob and thatch cottages, Norman Church, babbling brook and Village Green - a timeless picture of days gone by.

Here you will find exceptional food in a wonderful country setting, carefully chosen wines, roaring log fires and generous hospitality. Listed as one of the most romantic hotels in Great Britain and awarded 'Devon Hotel of the Year' - Devon Tourism Awards 2010, "Top UK Restaurants 2008 - the 100 best places to eat out in the UK" by Restaurant Magazine, Combe is a place you will love. For, to discover the warmth and tranquility of this luxury country house hotel surrounded by its enchanting woodland gardens is to find something very special - something you may never have known you were looking for until you found it, rather like falling in love for the very first time...
Luxury Hotel Accommodation
Combe House offers a choice of rooms, each with its own individual style and charm.

The largest rooms in the house are the master bedrooms and suites which offer wonderful panoramic views over the estate and surrounding countryside. Elegantly decorated in rich colours and fabrics, and furnished with fresh flowers, family portraits and antiques, these were the rooms originally occupied by the Lords and Ladies of the house in times gone by. Whilst these rooms convey all the grandeur of a bygone era, this is by no means at the expense of comfort. In keeping with what Combe is all about, the emphasis is on relaxation so in these rooms you'll find plenty of plump cushions and either cosy armchairs or sofas.

Our Superior rooms have garden outlooks and, whilst smaller, are still very spacious with plenty of natural daylight. Decorated with style, they are all very different - an oak panelled bathroom in one, hand-painted fantasy walls in another.

Situated in what was the servants' wing in the old days, are our Kingsize and Double bedded rooms, some with bath and hand shower, and some with large walk-in showers. These are decorated with a fresh, country-style look - floral prints and stripes and antique furniture. They overlook either the Nash Garden or the Hydrangea Garden.
