Combe House Hotel & Restaurant - Review

IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY Combe House simply oozes romance. Hidden deep within acres of lyrical Devon countryside, it's a magnificent Elizabethan manor. From the ancient cedar trees to the oak panelled walls, ancestral portraits, flamboyant flowers, squashy sofas and roaring log fire in the Great Hall, this serene, antique-filled house makes a wonderfully romantic getaway.

Watch the Arab horses and pheasants roam freely through the rolling 3,500 acre estate of this luxury Devon hotel as you enter the mile of winding drive. Make time to explore the scented corners of hidden gardens, and drink in timeless West Country views. Wild flowers cover the meadow in front of Combe House in springtime, and in late summer the smell of freshly-cut hay fills the air.

Sprawling bedrooms built for the aristos of times gone by mix character with 21st century comfort.Each one is individually decorated with small, quirky touches; beds are dressed with soft linens and hand-made patchwork quilts.

Private walled garden

Bedding down in this sumptuous Devon hideaway is pure indulgence and bathtime is pretty special as well. The recently refurbished Linen Suite boasts a huge six foot round copper bath tub with large sunflower shower overhead.

Dining is also to be savoured. Master chef Hadleigh Barrett makes great use of seasonal vegetables and aromatic herbs home-grown in the gardens. Tuck into pan-roasted partridge or stun the senses with a sensual trio of chocolate, and a glass of vintage Chablis.

You can work off your excesses later by striding out over the rugged open spaces of Dartmoor or strolling down the drive to the chocolate-box cob and thatch village of Gittisham – a picture of timeless Devon. Nearby you can search out hidden coves on secret beaches along the World Heritage coastline, and be sure to make time for some chilled champagne (awaiting all Room for Romance guests, with compliments) while watching the sun go down.
