My mother and I stayed at the Coombe House at the end of August 2004. We loved it! Richard and Pat are gratious hosts. They will be as involved or uninvolved as you wish. We had the twin bedroom (2 single beds) on the bottom floor. It was en-suite (private bathroom in the room), with lots of windows and a generous sized bathroom. Very well kept up. Also, lots of room so that you can put things away. We also had a T.V. and hairdryer. Breakfast was wonderful. The best we had on our trip. Included many extra treats! No phone in the room, but there is a pay phone type thing with a chair in the common area. Also, it is literally 5 minutes walk to Bourton-on-the-Water town centre. The town is REALLY touristy, but cute. Go to the Dial House restaurant for a very nice (yet expensive) meal. Also, go to Lower Slaughter and walk around. It's real cute!
