Imagine a wildly romantic 450-year old Elizabethan Manor set in 3,500 acres of one of Devon's finest country estates, close to the sea for long coastal walks, yet just a short drive from the historic city of Exeter. Beautiful Arabian horses roam freely as you approach Combe House along a mile of winding drive.

This charming luxury country house hotel lies in Gittisham, the film location for a Rosemund Pilcher novel and described by Prince Charles as the "Ideal English Village" with its pretty Devon cob and thatch cottages, Norman church and village green - a timeless picture of days gone by.

Combe Thatch Cottage
Tucked away in the woods at the entrance to Combe House is pretty Combe Thatch Cottage - the perfect romantic hideaway for two. Enjoy a true English thatched cottage with its own secluded walled garden. The original cottage features have been enhanced and embellished with comfortable contemporary furnishings in shades of natural linen and stone, complemented by carefully placed fine antiques and fresh flowers.

The bathroom, with its sloping floor (the building is around 600 years old) is a sybarite's dream, with its deep Thomas Crapper copper tub, and there's a spacious stone-clad shower with soft white towels, robes and slippers. A stay at Combe Thatched Cottage might only be for two or three nights, but during that time we are masters and mistresses of all we survey.

Guests enjoy all the benefits of a self-catering cottage, with a level of luxury that matches the hotel, and have the luxury of eating some seriously good food in Combe’s restaurant. Self-catering without the cooking!

For special occasions, a Combe House chef can create a romantic candlelit dinner for two discreetly served in the dining alcove.

The Magic of Combe House Devon
The allure of Combe, both in the main house and in the cottage, is a combination of heritage and a welcoming lived-in feel. Whether you are sleeping under the thatched roof or in one of the splendid suites in Combe House, you cannot fail but notice the care which has been taken to create truly romantic rooms, each with its own individual character. Some have sweeping views of the surrounding Devon countryside, others have quirky murals (created by the previous owner) and mullioned, ivy-clad windows.

For guests staying at Combe House who seek something that little bit different, there is a bathroom in the garden! This delightful, quirky bathroom uses rainwater (which is heated by a wood-burning stove, with wood from the estate, of course) to fill a Victorian roll-top bath. What could be more romantic than your own candlelit bathroom in a garden, accessed by a secluded pathway and only yards from the hotel?

Whenever you choose to visit Combe, in the depths of winter or the height of summer, whether for morning coffee or for a celebratory dinner, a brief stay or a fortnight's rest and relaxation, you are assured of a warm welcome. This historical treasure offers a truly unique experience.
