Imagine a wildly romantic Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor set in 3,500 acres of one of Devon's finest country estates, close to the sea for long coastal walks, yet just a short drive from the Cathedral city of Exeter. Beautiful Arabian horses and pheasants roam freely as you approach Combe House along a mile of winding drive. This charming luxury country house hotel lies in Gittisham, the film location for a Rosamunde Pilcher novel and described by Prince Charles as the "Ideal English Village" with its pretty Devon cob and thatch cottages, Norman Church, babbling brook and Village Green - a timeless picture of days gone by.

Here you will find exceptional food in a wonderful country setting, carefully chosen wines, roaring log fires and generous hospitality. Listed as one of the most romantic hotels in Great Britain and awarded "Top UK Restaurants 2008 - the 100 best places to eat out in the UK" by Restaurant Magazine, Combe is a place you will love. For, to discover the warmth and tranquility of this luxury country house hotel surrounded by its enchanting woodland gardens is to find something very special - something you may never have known you were looking for until you found it, rather like falling in love for the very first time...
