The West Country region

With a very mild climate all year round North Devon is a wonderful location at any time of year


Barnstaple is the commercial centre of the region, combining sophisticated shopping with the bustling atmosphere of markets and speciality shops. The modern Green Lanes Shopping Centre compliments the traditional Pannier and Craft Markets held since 1855 in the Pannier Market Hall.

This attractive market town is the oldest and largest town in North Devon, nestling in the Taw valley on the other side of the estuary which the Saxons first settled in Barnstaple (Barum) over 1000 years ago.

The Long Bridge, crossing the tidal River Taw was thought to have been built in the 12th and 13th centuries and in Litchdon Street are located the Penrose Almshouses built in the early 17th century.

"Fantastic, Welcoming.....caters for all the family...and pets if required!"

The special Family Holiday (for 12 of us) I booked at Combrew Farm, Devon, to celebrate a 65th birthday, two 40th birthdays and an 18th birthday, turned out to be one of the best holidays we have all enjoyed together as a family..along with Smokey the dog! John and Sue (the owners) along with their staff, could not have been more welcoming and did everything they could to ensure our holiday was a happy and memorable one..,.and it was! The accommodation .. we stayed in the Roundhouse and adjoining Tuckers Retreat... was excellent, - Attention to detail... Cosy furnishings, up to the minute bathrooms. showers, bedrooms. kitchen etc, proved a hit with everyone... and there was plenty of room for us to move around! The on-site facilities - including the play area, pool and the farm animals proved a big hit with the children - and the adults alike!! Brilliant holiday.

"Practically perfect in every way!"

The amount of space and different things to do either on the farm or within easy driving instance made Combrew Farm an ideal place to stay for all three generations of our family. We found all the facilities we could have wished or including power showers and well furnished rooms for the older members of the family to any numbers of small animals for the kids to feed with any leftover food! Fitness conscious children were able to play tennis and badminton (rackets supplied!), swim against the current in the indoor pool and generally keep fit in the small gym. Overall a resounding success, in no small part due to Sue, the welcoming owner.

"The perfect location"

We have grandchildren of various ages and we all love it at The Roundhouse. This was our 7th visit and we have booked for next year too. The children love the trampolines and pool, we all love the tennis, the men love the pool table and table tennis. It is perfect for all ages. Sue and John are lovely hosts, always there if needed but there is no interferance.
This year we took advantage of the bicycle hire. Fremington Quay is about 11/2 miles and the children can now cycle there.
There are plenty of places to eat out or use the take a way from Han Chinese and the house facilities are second to none.

"Exactly what it said on the tin!"

The brochure and website made the Roundhouse out to be excellent and it never fell short of the publicity. There were eight of us plus two very small children and we all fitted in perfectly. When we arrived, everywhere was very clean and the fixtures and fittings were all that we could have asked for. The surrounding area is beautiful and we found plenty to do and see despite the mixed weather. We would recommend the Roundhouse to anyone unless they take the weeks that we plan to return!

"Just wonderful"

We came here with our children and grandchildren and the Roundhouse was perfect for us. Plenty of room and all facilities of a very high standard. Full marks for the most comfortable beds and nice powerful showers. The pool was wonderfully warm and was a big hit with the grandchildren who also enjoyed feeding the chickens each morning. There is so much to do on-site you almost don't need to leave. We hope to return sometime soon.

"A little bit of Heaven in Devon"

We booked the roundhouse to celebrate my Mum's 50th Birthday and it did not fail to deliver.
The roundhouse is a lovely property and there was plenty of room for all members of the family including our young children and babies. Before booking the roundhouse Sue was on hand to answer any of our questions which I found very helpful.

The facilities at Combrew are fantastic. The pool is a very lovely 36 degrees which meant that the children could stay and play as long as they wanted. In addition there is also the play park and the animals which I think add a lovely touch.

I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone and also cannot wait for another occasion for the family to get together.
