Almost perfect but the dogs...

  • 3 of 5

Coomband Farm was so very close to being perfect, the location is peaceful, the accommodation was easily the best we have stayed in and the staff helpful. Unfortunately one our group was bitten by one of the five farm dogs just after he arrived; the farm staff could not have been more helpful, however with this unfortunate incident always in mind throughout our time at the farm, we were less inclined to go and explore the grounds, the lake, and surrounding woodland as described, in case it might happen again. This was a great pity.

Perfect house, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Coombeland Barn is a beautifully appointed, comfortable property set in rural Devon. The barn is approached by a long single track driveway which leads to a gravelled parking area. It is set amid rolling lawns, next to a lake, just below the owners private home. The 6 en-suite double/twin bedrooms are furnished to a high standard, as is the rest of the property. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and kitchen wares. It was perfect for our party of 8 adults and 2 teenagers, with room to spare. Guests are able to walk on private woodland trails, swim in the lake or just wander around the extensive grounds. John, our host and Maggie, the housekeeper, ensured that we had everything we needed and were very friendly and helpful. Tiverton is the nearest town, approximately a 15 minute drive and the Devon coast about 1 hour away. The rural location and lack of neighbouring properties makes for a very relaxing time. On a clear night the lack of street lights and light pollution gives the opportunity for some fantastic views of the stars. We were treated to a spectacular meteor shower during our stay. The on site stables were a big hit with the 2 teenage girls in our party who were welcomed by the friendly staff. An added bonus was being welcomed by 7 very well trained and loveable golden Labradors, who greeted us enthusiastically each time we returned from a day out. Unfortunately John would not let us adopt them and take them home. For anyone wishing to get away from it all the location is perfect but a car is essential as there are no shops, pubs or restaurants within walking distance (we did try).

We would highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay and would like to thank John for giving us the opportunity to share his lovely property for a short while.

Fantastic house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family - ten of us including three children and my elderly Mum (with her mobility scooter) - had a lovely relaxing week at Coombeland. John, the owner, and Maggie, the housekeeper, were both incredibly welcoming and helpful. Inside, the house was very comfortable to stay in - comfy beds, powerful showers, luxurious towels and with everything we needed in the kitchen. The location and grounds were peaceful and beautiful with a lake to sit and read by, and acres of woodland walks. John's dogs were excitable but very friendly - we're an animal-loving family and it was great having the dogs around to pet and play with. The horses on site were also well loved, particularly by the horse-mad member of our family. A great week. Thank you.

A Truly Beauriful Place

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults and 4 children) have just returned from spending a great Easter holiday at Coombeland which will always remain with me as a very happy family holiday spent in such a truly beautiful place. The setting can only be described as absolutely glorious. The converted barns have been tastefully refurbished and much thought has been given to making the accommodation and its contents so pleasing. The kitchen was fully equipped even down to the provision of cling film and silver foil. The beds were extremely comfortable and the white bed linen felt so crisp and clean. All en-suites were provided with fluffy towels and basic toiletries.

John welcomed us on our arrival and offered helpful information to assist our stay. We took several walks around the extensive grounds, visiting the stables and cattle with their new calves and it was great just being able to roam as we pleased. John's 7 labradors are lovely, but any adult or child not used to dogs may find their greetings overwhelming at times. However, I personally couldn't fault Coombelands - it was lovely, excellent accommodation and a fantastic setting.

Countryside Heaven

  • 4 of 5

Coombeland is found at the end of a long driveway surrounded by fields, sheep, pheasants, horses, cows and woodland. It feels a million miles away from anywhere but is only a few miles from Tiverton.

The 6 en suite bedrooms are all of a very high standard with big fluffy towels, soft duvets and crisp linen. The main living area is wonderfully warm with underfloor heating, an aga and a wood burner. The whole house works very well for a large family or groups of friends with a good utility boot room for muddy wellies and an undercover games room with pool table and ping pong table.

We had a lovely week, exploring the grounds which are extensive and beautiful. It was so lovely to do walks straight from the front door of the house. We also did trips out to Exeter and National Trust properties of which Knightshayes, only 5 miles away was exceptional.

John the owner and his housekeepers are all very welcoming and helpful. Maggie took some of the children for walks around the paddock on an enormous horse called Scrumpy which they loved. If you love dogs then you are in for a treat as John as 7 (Yes seven !) red labradors which are very friendly but do bark quite a lot which can be a little overwhelming for some.

We all had a wonderful week and really enjoyed ourselves. We all felt really relaxed and none of us wanted to leave.

Amazing summer holiday break

  • 5 of 5

A few minutes’ drive from Tiverton in Devon up hill and down the valley on a road through a stretch of farmlands, we reached the farm house bungalow “Coombeland” to be greeted by a pack of seven Labradors which included two small puppies. Soon they became our companions through the whole of our stay of one week. My daughter cannot stop talking about the dogs and is looking forward to going there again.

We enjoyed a very peaceful and pleasant holiday in this 4 bed barn conversion which has been carried out to a very high standard situated in 170 acres of land with a serene outlook, with a lake in front and gazing cattle, sheep and horses. Ideal for walks. Situated with easy drive to the north Devon coast or south Devon for days out. Kitted out with a pool table and Table tennis table to keep the kids entertained Coombland is an ideal place for everyone.

John and the crew made us feel right at home. Always there to help if needed and still respectful of our privacy. A big thank you to all for making it a wonderful holiday. I would highly recommend Coombeland barn to anyone and we are already planning another holiday for next year!!
