Coombe Farm Self Catering Cottages

Only a mile from the centre Kingsbridge and its waterfront, yet absolutely in the country, two cottages cleverly converted from former barns, sharing exclusive use of an indoor heated swimming pool (29′ x 11′ x 4′ deep, open 7am to 9pm or 24 hours if both cottages are booked together) and games room (table tennis, pool table). You are welcome to fish (at half price) in three well-stocked coarse fishing lakes (tench, roach, carp – 25lbs the largest, so far!).

The cottages are quietly tucked behind ‘The Hen House’, a fitness, health and beauty centre in another converted barn; you are welcome to book in advance a professional massage or beauty therapy or a fitness class (yoga, pilates, and classial pilates) and use the excellent gym at reduced rates. Payphone on site. Spring water.These are wonderfully relaxing retreats after a day exploring the South Hams.

If you are staying at Coombe Farm, we recommend booking appointments for the Hen House, Fitness, Health and Beauty Centre, well in advance to your arrival to avoid any disappointment.

Our sincere thanks to our wonderful hostess & host, Mrs & Mr Robinson, They made us so welcome throughout the week we here. Mixit Cottage is beautifully & tastefully equipped with everything we needed for a fantastic stay in the centre of the South Hams.

We have used Helpful Holidays on & off for many years, but Mixit Cottage is the best that we have encountered – we just loved it!!!

While staying at Coombe Farm you must treat yourself to a wonderful beautifying treatment or a heavenly massage. The Hen House is located just yards from your accommodation and has gained a fantastic reputation locally and therefore we do advise booking well in advance of your stay to ensure you are not disappointed!

We also have a comfortable, but sophisticated, hair salon covering all aspects of hairdressing together with a fully equipped private gym. For more details about what the Hen House has to offer click here.
