The Lower Coombe Royal estate is hidden away among acres of historic gardens on the edge of Kingsbridge, near Salcombe, in South Devon yet it is just 10 minutes walk from the thriving market town centre. The 200 year old Coach House is nestled up the valley, hidden away in its own private glade. It is on the edge of the apple orchard and the historic American Garden.

The coach house was a wonderful place! Julie has thought of everything and all of the contents are of a superb standard- things that I would love in my own home! The info booklet was a great starting point! The upside down nature of the house was great- upstairs was warm and cosy and downstairs a little cooler which was great at the end of a day on the beach. The garden is stunning and such a lovely place to walk around- we bought our dog who thought she was in heaven with such a wide ranging space to explore at all times. Our son was also very well catered for with a climbing frame, football area and whole host of great exploring opps! Kingsbridge is also a hidden gem- great location for shops - both foodie and little nik naks for the house and memories- recommend 'Lazy Sundays' and the bake house for pastries in the morning! We were able to go to fab beaches in 20mins- south and north sands in salcombe and hope cove my personal favourites. For food- Journeys end in ringmore- amazing food for a bit more expense, seven stars in Kingsbridge and winking prawn for lunch in Salcombe are our favourite picks! A thoroughly lovely week and a wonderful place that I will be revisiting and telling everybody about! Thank you Julie and family
