Coombe Trenchard - Delightful House & Gardens

Coombe Trenchard - Delightful House & Gardens

Address: Lewtrenchard Devon  EX20 4PW
Telephone: 01566 783179
Region: West Devon - more
We found Coombe Trenchard in 2007 and instantly fell in love with its Arts & Crafts style, peaceful parkland setting, and amazingly high quality of workmanship in its manifold features. However, it was the intense allure of its gardens, left largely undisturbed for decades, that made Coombe Trenchard irresistible. Our mission is to restore the gardens to their Belle Epoque glory and to share with others the pleasure in seeing the restoration progress and to enjoy the results.

Events at Coombe Tenchard
In June 2012 there will be opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of our annual Arts & Crafts Garden Festival, experience Open Air Theatre and through June & July the gardens will be open at weekends for a Sculpture Exhibition. For More Information please click here

We hope you will visit us to see our garden projects as they unfold, or simply sample our wonderful cream teas and home made cakes!

Group Visits
Private group visits are welcome by prior arrangement. Please contact Sarah to request your chosen date, and then return a completed booking form.

The East Wing
The East Wing of Coombe Trenchard was originally the accommodation wing for the staff to the main house, and until recently had remained unaltered since the death of the squire, Henry Sperling in 1952. The new owners of Coombe Trenchard have sympathetically renovated and restored the East wing, providing modern comforts, but without losing the sense of history. The East Wing has been decorated using traditional Edwardian colours with an Arts & Crafts influence. Antique pieces of furniture and object d’art in keeping with this era grace the bedrooms.

Ground Floor
The East Wing entrance hall leads to the living area. This has been designed as an open plan studio style kitchen/diner with a small relaxed seating area for watching TV.

Beautiful handmade oak kitchen units house the basic requirements for holiday catering:fridge, fan heated oven/microwave, electric hob and butlers sink.

There is a laundry room off the entrance hall, housing a washing machine, tumble dryer, and other laundry items.

Outdoor Space
The East Wing apartment is approached via a quiet drive, which leads directly off the main carriageway to Coombe Trenchard.

There is an attractive enclosed terraced area, with seating, suitable for barbeques.

Upstairs we have spacious accommodation for up to 4 adults, available as either two or three bedroom accommodation.

For 3 people we have the attractive Clock Tower bedroom and the Parlour Maid’s room; a reading room/study, a shower room with WC and walk-in shower, and separate WC.

For groups of 4 people there is the additional Shapland & Petter room. See Bookings & Prices for more information.

The Parlour Maid’s Bedroom: A single bedroom, with an attractive window seat and views across fields to the North of Coombe Trenchard. Red and Roe deer are frequently sighted in these fields early in the morning.
