Coombe Trenchard House & Gardens
Coombe Trenchard offers beautiful and very relaxing accommodation within the East Wing of our very special Arts & Crafts Country House.
We are very fortunate that most of the original features of the house have survived for ourselves and our guests to enjoy
Choose to stay in one of our beautiful bedrooms, with en-suite facilities (modern!) and all with wonderful views over the acres of gardens.
The Clock Tower Bedroom:
A master bedroom within the Italianate clock tower, overlooking the Bothy and the east lawn, beautifully decorated in rich warm colours.
This good sized bedroom has the comfort of a 5’ bed and a relaxed seating area, with television, around a cast iron Edwardian fireplace.
With en-suite facilities
The Shapland & Petter Bedroom:
This large double bedroom faces over the north carriage drive with its boundaries of Rhododendron, and overlooks Home field. It has a comfortable 5’ bed, its own hand basin, and television. The window seat is an excellent vantage point from which to view the wildlife visiting the north side of the house.
Following a relaxing night, enjoy a full English breakfast with eggs from our own free range hens alongside other produce that we have sourced from around the area.
For those who enjoy walking, you need not roam far from Coombe Trenchard to appreciate some of the finest scenery in the county. The formal gardens at Coombe Trenchard are open to the public on a few occasions each year. Guests staying in the East Wing are very welcome to walk around the gardens, with prior arrangement with the owners.
There are plenty of gardens to visit locally, interesting towns to visit, splendid walks and cycle routes, Dartmoor on our door step, and the coast is about a half-hour car journey away. Our local towns of Tavistock, Launceston and Okehampton are all within 15 minutes drive and Exeter and Plymouth approximately 40 minutes.
Our favourite local places to visit are the National Trust properties of Cotehele, Castle Drogo and Lydford Gorge, the Pannier Market at Tavistock and the beach at Crackington Haven. The footpath network locally is particularly good and we are just off the Two Castles Trail which follows a route from Launceston to Okehampton and not far from the Granite Way, the West Devon Way and the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail. Horse riding is available nearby on Dartmoor.
We are blessed with some fantastic restaurants and pubs in the area, almost all of which we have thoroughly researched in the interests of our guests! Links to some of the very best are listed on the Links page, but special mention must go to the Lewtrenchard Manor restaurant which serves world class cuisine and is a bracing 10 minute walk down our driveway!
