“Wonderful B&B!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

Upon arrival we were immediately made to feel at home with coffee, tea and home-made flapjacks, as well as good conversation. Chris is a wonderful host! Our room was beautiful and extremely clean, with a very comfortable bed and lovely views of the garden. Breakfast was abundant; the Full English breakfast and the vegetarian cooked breakfast were delicious! We found the house charming and due to the lovely weather, we enjoyed spending a relaxing time in the garden, playing with Chris's two friendly dogs. We had a wonderful short break and will definitely stay again!

Thank you for all the lovely compliments - I now have to keep the garden tidy, in case another guest takes more photos!!

I must also take more dog pictures, so guests know I now have two.

This is a very comfortable B&B in a nice village. We were three walkers on the east devon way and the rooms were excellent, breakfast first rate and the host charming and most helpful. We arrived on a Sunday which we discovered is a night when the choice of eating places in the town is very retsricted, so best to plan ahead. We would thoroughly recommend Combe House without hesitation.

Lots of atmosphere in a genuinely old house, with essentials up-dated. Warm friendly kitchen where our gracious host, Chris, served us tea on arrival. She does a great breakfast, and was very helpful assisting our local searches. Off-street parking. A little hard to find, but tiny Colyton provides a quiet retreat from the crowds at near-by Lyme Regis. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: When asking directions: "Combe" is pronunced "Coombe"

This is the best I have ever stayed in and completely underpriced too. Chris is very welcoming with tea and home made fruity flapjacks. The rooms are delightful. They are clean, well put together, spotlessly clean and offer lots of fluffy pillows and cushions. Breakfast is perfectly judged with bacon and black pudding sourced from the local butcher. The crockery is delightful and there are lots of interesting details such as the driftwood christmas trees outside. Ask Chris about her junk collecting too. I also loved her pets - two dogs and Morris the cat. All very homely sitting round her over-active aga. Walkers should use this place as she will pick you up from the coastal path.

'Junk' - you mean 'treasure' - but thank you for the kind words.

I hope your last few days of the south west coastal path were as entertaining as the first!

There are some people who you feel you have known for 30 years, even if you have only just met and Chris was one such person. From the moment we arrived there was a welcome cup of tea and scone and this set the tone for the whole stay.

We opted out of the cooked breakfast as the alternative provided (fresh fruit, muesli and home made bread nicely toasted) was just too nice.

Cannot recommend this place too highly.

My husband and I enjoyed a comfortable, restful stay in Combe House B&B, with a warm welcome from the owner, Chris. The house is beautiful, our room was very pretty and, both being over 6ft, we really appreciated the double shower. Breakfast was delicious and set us up perfectly for a long walk. A lovely weekend...

Thank you Roger, for time spent writing the review. Your next trip will be warm and sunny - but I'm not promising - hopefully no shopping chores!
