About: Lower Coombe Royal sits in its own private valley in the heart of the South Hams near Kingsbridge, Devon. Here you will find luxury self catering accommodation in one of the most secluded yet convenient settings in the South Hams.

Each luxury self catering retreat opens straight out onto the magnificent 8 acre gardens largely planted in the 19th Century and full of camellias and more exotic flowers, shrubs and trees. A short walk beyond the private gardens is the Market Town of Kingsbridge. Close at hand you can find many distractions such as the beautiful beaches of the South Hams and the coast path and slightly more distant, the rugged walks on Dartmoor.

There are four self catering holiday or short break venues at Lower Coombe Royal. The luxury accommodation ranges from one bedroom to three in combination sleeping between two and eighteen. Whichever you choose, it will be furnished comfortably with eclectic antiques and new bathrooms and kitchens in 2006

Lower Coombe Royal is particularly noted for its American Garden which is first mentioned in an article in the Journal of Horticulture and Cottage Gardening. From this it appears that it was laid out soon after 1840 by John Luscombe as an addition to the garden of his house, Coombe Royal.

The gardens contain a fine collection of trees, including a number of native species and a silver fir, a Japanese elm and a Judas tree and an enormous Thuja. There are over one hundred varieties of camellias and some of the original rhododendrons planted in 1840 are over fifty foot high. A series of paths take you on an ever changing journey around the grounds - you never know what you might find. Ideal for garden and wild life enthusiasts as well as children of all ages!

The 'rain forest' is a natural adventure playground for children... and adults! Ladders, tree houses, rope and tire swings adorn various trees for extra fun and amusement. The Victorian greenhouse houses home grown plants and vegetables and this is where you will often find one of us tinkering away. The water gardens offer peace and bird life to the background of running water. Rest on one of our many wooden benches and soak in the views and garden colours.

Where we can, we use local natural and organic products. This is from the cleaning products that we use through to the welcome pack that will greet you on your arrival.
