Cornborough Coombe - Large Country House with separate annexe - Sleeps 10

Cornborough Combe and Cornborugh Cott Annexe

Cornborough Coombe, described by guests as a fabulous Enid Blyton House is full of character, where relaxation and adventure go hand in hand. Its historic Devonshire pink facade makes a handsome statement about what you can expect inside – a luxurious and beautifully furnished property that will delight families and friends.

Cornborough Coombe sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms with 4 bedrooms in the main house plus 1 in the adjoining self-contained studio annexe that we call Cornborough Cott. Book Cornborough Coombe and use of the Cott is included in the price – the whole place is yours at no additional cost. If you don’t need the Cott it won’t be let to anyone else during your stay.

Cornborough Cott can be booked on its own outside school holidays. When this happens we will ensure the main house remains empty so Cott guests can enjoy having the gardens and grounds to themselves.

Cornborough lies at the end of a private lane in a wonderfully secluded spot within walking distance of a pub and just a mile from the sandy beaches at Westward Ho! and Northam in North Devon which have some of the best surfing in the South West. Guests also enjoy exclusive access to traditional beach hut overlooking the sands and seawater pool at Westward Ho!

The interior is tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished, with style and class throughout. The whole house feels like it was made to be enjoyed with a massive kitchen/diner at the centre of the house. It’s where everyone meets, eats and has a good time, enjoying relaxed mornings, lazy lunches and fabulous family dinners. There is a large patio outside which is a real sun-trap and ideal for family barbecues after a fun day at the beach or walking along the many trails all around the area.

The house is great for large parties with children of all ages; there is a games-room with table-football and a PlayStation and upstairs there is a box-room with a toy collection. Cornborough is set in almost an acre of private grounds with lawns, woods and gardens perfect for exploring, climbing and playing games all day long. The house has many original features with uneven floors and a twisting, narrow wooden second staircase, so be careful after dinner!

There are four large bedrooms that sleep 8 people, two en suite, looking over the gardens. This house is made for memorable holidays with family and friends.

A Devonshire Cream Tea of delicious locally made scones, jam and clotted cream will await your arrival. We include gingerbread men for children (gingerbread Santas' at Christmas) while at Easter you'll find chocolate cream eggs in case you fancy an Easter Egg hunt in the house or garden.

Babysitting is available on request.

“ June 2010: Arriving to a warm welcome from Sally the delicious cream tea really set the scene for the rest of our stay in this delightful cottage. Such attention to detail is so good to see! We decided not to travel as the weather has been so beautiful we decided to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the lovely garden. ”
