“Top-notch B&B”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

My partner and I stayed at Combe House back in September - I was heavily pregnant, and due to our bundle of joy arriving a little earlier than expected its taken me this long to write a review - but write I must as our stay was so enjoyable.

Chris is a most welcoming host; on arrival inviting us into the kitchen for some tea and cake. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and the atmosphere relaxed and homely. She has done an amazing job renovating the place - its the type of house we hope to live in one day! Breakfast was delicious, with a good choice every morning and friendly conversation to boot.

We have been recommending Combe House to all our friends and family. Look no further for a delightful stay in Devon!

Elise - I have no baby excuses for my slow response - just slow!

Thanks for the lovely comments. Future guests do read reviews and I'm sure it helps when such nice things are said!!

Don't forget - I have a cot!

Chris.

Just had a great couple of nights stay at Combe House with my wife and daughter. Chris is very welcoming and friendly. Combe house has old world charm and character combined with modern facilities loads of hot water and a shower that has bags of power. Spotlessly clean and warm. The dogs Zip and Polly are extremely well behaved and Maurice the cat is extremely entertaining. Breakfasts to die for. All cooked to order using local produce. The bread and preserves are all home made. Just a very nice place to stay with great Customer Service. We'll done Chris.

All these nice reviews - it means I have to keep trying!! Chocolate flapjacks recently - but most guests are on holiday and diets are put on hold....

Thanks again Tim for time spent on the review. Oh - cat is 'Morris' - Maurice is far too posh for him!!

Had a couple of nights at short notice as we were doing up our cottage. Chris was so warm and welcoming. The room was very comfortable as was the bed. Bathroom facilities good with a range of toiletries to use which was a well as we forgot ours! Breakfast in the morning was excellent and kept us going all day. A plus for us was being greeted by Polly the Whoodle too!

We have just returned home after spending 3 lovely days at Combe House with my son and his fiance and we cannot recall having visited a more welcoming and delightful B&B. It is everything that other commentators have said, and more, and the hostess Chris could not be more thoughtful and helpful. The rooms are delightful and full of character, the Breakfasts freshly cooked for each individuals requirements. The B&B is perfectly situated for visits to River Cottage in nearby Axminster and would also be great for Sidmouth Folk week accommodation. Colyton is also a lovely lttle town and great meals can be had at the Kingfisher Pub.Chris deserves every success in the future.

Chris is a warm, friendly host who welcomed us with hot drinks & her delicious home made flapjack ~ ask for the recipe; we did! Our room overlooked the garden, had a comfy bed with small but well appointed en suite & all facilities to enjoy. Breakfast was freshly cooked, enough to keep us going for the day, & Chris was on hand to offer ideas for exploring & generally making us feel at home. Chris's cat & 2 dogs were friendly & quiet but not intrusive. Ideal company!
Tip: before arriving, ask Chris for info about how to find Combe House & where to park ~ not difficult but local knowledge will help!
Tip 2: try the Kingfisher pub in the village for an evening meal ~ excellent.

Just returned from a wonderful weekend, made more special by staying in this lovely B&B. Chris was so welcoming and has thought of everything. A warming cuppa and home made cake to greet us and everything we could need in our room, which considering we were with an 8 year old and 4 month old was considerable. A proper cot, not just a travel cot and all needed bedding as well as toys and other lovely touches. Breakfast was fabulous and my daughter didn't want to leave zip and Polly behind! We certainly hope to return.

Kat, thanks so much for the kind comments. I hardly knew you had a baby - she was so quiet - of course, it won't last!!
It was nice to see Grace comfortable with the dogs - they are good practise for beginners!

Chris and Rachel couldn't have been more welcoming. The rooms are individual and charming but with modern conveniences. We only stayed one night but will certainly return next time we are in the area. Great breakfast served in nicely appointed dining room.
