Combe Cottage is in the shadow of the great Black Combe which is just short of a mountain, and is the best place in the UK to see all five kingdoms – England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and The Isle of Man. It’s very popular locally and quite demanding at times. You may see four seasons in one day as you walk to the summit. You can walk and bike around the coast for 20 miles – there is a secure storage space available at Combe Cottage.
A perfect rural setting – Combe Cottage, nestled snuggly within this small and friendly village results in a welcoming, cosy spot, very comfortably furnished and providing a great base to explore farther afield or simply enjoy what there is to do – which is plenty – on the doorstep.
Dressed in a very subtle grey and lemon colour palette throughout, Combe Cottage’s modern furnishings and decor compliment each other perfectly.
In keeping with the theme throughout our cottages, soothing colours have once again been chosen for relaxation and promoting a feeling of well being.
Combe Cottage’s lounge is carpeted, there are two new very comfortable sofas, soft lighting and a very large TV, perfect for a movie night!
