Combermere Abbey is just beautiful; the set up in the north wing is so unique and well thought out. We couldn’t have asked for more! The views from the room and the completely peaceful surroundings are simply wonderful and I hope one day we get to revisit. The use of the lounges and breakfast in the dining room are excellent. Stephan was very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay very, very much. One of the best nights sleep in years!
This place is fantastic, the size of the estate, the large oaks and pines. The huge lake and the little heard about monument that stands tall at the rear of the grounds are mind boggling to me. The monument especially how were falsely lead to believe it was erected in memory of field Marshall combermere. As is the case with most obelisks of this period it stand tall in the surrounding landscape and at first glance looks to be made of solid stone but alas the stone merely masks the true fabric of this magnificent structure. Red brick, a material commonly used in the tartarian period as it was made using ion a great conducter that was used to harness the free energy from the ionosphere. Tartaria is not a conspiracy and most have never heard of it. Do some research and youll start looking at these fantastic structures from a different point of view.…
Had the amazing experience of staying in the Salamanca room. It’s beautiful views, gorgeous furniture and spacious rooms made it worth every single penny. Our host Stephan was so kind and look after us extremely well from start to finish, the breakfast served was faultless as was the rest of the stay. Thank you Stephan, we will be visiting again that’s for sure! Easily 6 stars this place!
We paid £140 per couple per night for a December wedding weekend. For this price, we expected pretty faultless accommodation. Instead, there was no hot water in any of the rooms (Crossley cottage). We complained on Saturday morning and someone came to look at it and claimed to have fixed it but nothing had changed and we had cold showers the entire stay. The maintenance man closed our room door so hard that something happened to the door knob and I couldn't get in and my partner couldn't get out of the room on the morning of the wedding when we all needed to get ready and that needed to be fixed as well while people wanted to get changed. The oven in the kitchen didn't work and the whole place was quite cold and univiting. The wedding was lovely but let down by the accommodation and definitely not worth the £280 we paid.…
What a rip off! Wedding guests wer charged £75 PER PERSON per night, for which we were put in little cottages. The rooms had a combination of cheap and nasty furniture along with some more attractive pieces in keeping with the supposed luxury tag. The bedrooms were freezing with inefficient wall heaters, the towels were dirty and contained hair clumps, there were cobwebs on the bedside lamps and to cap it all there was a note with a plastic bag that demanded we STRIPPED OUR OWN BEDS after our stay. For breakfast there was a budget (Lidl) breakfast hamper, not even a hot breakfast for that price. This place can’t decide if it’s a boarding house in Skegness or a luxury wedding destination.
Stayed in one of the cottages for two nights. We were in Stone Lodge, which is at the entrance, so a long way from the B&B and other cottages. It was hard to find the entrance in the dark...but we found it eventually. Beautifully decorated, spacious but cosy at the same time, well equipped and quiet. Lovely places to walk and explore. Pub 10 minute walk. Pooch loved being away in this dog friendly cottage.
What a fabulous place this is. The warmest of welcomes and amazing staff. The owners have thought of absolutely everything to make this a really wonderful place to stay. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather so couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more. Terrific breakfast cooked and served by wonderful Stephan. Can’t wait to return!
This was our second visit to Combermere Abbey - staying in the Salamanca room in the North Wing. Each time we have come it has truly been an amazing experience. It took us 5 hours to drive up from London on this attempt, but the wait was truly worth it. The views are amazing and the serenity from the peace and quiet are everything we needed. Stephan is an incredible host and is very pleasant company and will always going above and beyond to provide recommendations for places to visit or restaurants to eat at. We very much enjoyed ourselves and will be back soon.
Beautiful and peaceful with the gorgeous lake and woodland right on your doorstep. Cottage was excellent, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and provided a wonderful base to explore from. Wood burner, super comfy bed and tasteful decor made it a pleasure to stay in. Wi-fi signal good and if I were to be really picky it would have been nice to have a smart TV ( only if the weather was really bad as it is the perfect place to hibernate in!) Thoroughly recommended.
Could not fault Combermere Abbey. From the warm welcome by Stephan to the excellent rooms, we had Salamanca which is full of light and elegant style, space and everything you would need for a restful and extremely comfortable stay. Beautifully decorated with an interesting history it is a special place to stay. Breakfast was provided by Stephan and we thoroughly enjoyed his stories of the restoration of the Abbey. The grounds are really beautiful and the view over the mere is stunning. Don't even think about staying anywhere else in the area. When I got home I checked my family history to find out I am a descendent of the Abbey's founder. No wonder it felt like home !
