Minimum stay varies
Holiday Rental House
Lower Coombe Royal was built by Roger Bond Luscombe in the early 1900's after Combe Royal, the older mansion north of us, was badly damaged by fire. The Lower Coombe Royal estate is hidden away among acres of historic gardens on the edge of Kingsbridge, near Salcombe, in South Devon yet 2 minutes from the thriving market town centre. The 200 year old Devon Coach House is nestled up the valley, hidden away in its own private glade. It is situated on the edge of the apple orchard and the historic American Garden. This cosy 3-bedroom stone cottage is the perfect family hideaway. We offer you peace and tranquillity as well as adventure and surprises in our 8 acres of beautiful gardens and woods, all within five minutes’ walk of the amenities of Kingsbridge and ten minutes' drive from beautifu...Lower Coombe Royal was built by Roger Bond Luscombe in the early 1900's after Combe Royal, the older mansion north of us, was badly damaged by fire.
