  • "Lovely house, but parts of it needs updating such as the games room, maybe another downstairs bathroom as there were 16 of us."

    The host Angela was amazing.

    Thank you for the feedback regarding the games room and we are delighted to let you know that we have now purchased a new pool table. We are always grateful to receive feedback and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Property Owner

  • "Great place for a family holiday with excellent facilities."

    The wonderful setting in such extensive woods meant that we hardly left the site all week other than to buy food. The swimming pool and hot tub were a huge success with all the family. We couldn't have found a better place particularly in these strange Covid19 times. There is only one suggestion for an improvement and that is that the pool table in the games room could do with being upgraded!

Middle Coombe was quirky and full of character and our party (age range 2-83) were happy to stay around the property and in the wonderful grounds most of the week. The pool and hot tub were very popular with the young. it was a brilliant holiday.

    We were a party of 15 (on a hen weekend) and this was just perfect. Angela was lovely, greeting us on arrival and making us feel so welcome, hot tub was a great hit and the woodland setting topped it off.
