The Coombe Farm Trust
About the home
Middle Coombe is a beautiful 16 century cob & thatch farmhouse, listed grade 2*, nestled in its own sheltered valley with extensive ancient outbuildings. Coombe is surrounded by 200 acres of organic farmland (where we raise our organic beef cattle) and 200 acres of mixed woodland (with wild red deer). An extensive public access footpath network runs throughout, with it's own surprises. The house (available for rent throughout the year) is full of atmosphere and character, much loved and with fine furniture and oak paneling.
On site, we also have a solar heated swimming pool, hot tub, children's play area with a large trampoline with safety net, sand pit, slide and willow dome.
For wet days, there's a cider barn, for indoor games which include table tennis and a pool table. The barn is also very cooling during very hot days, and a perfect place for evening entertainment if you wish to be close to the children playing, as the rear doors open up to the outside play area.

The West Country / Devon region
Devon has an abundance of wildlife, walks, cycling areas, fishing. In some built up areas, but still with a lot of rural life.
Tiverton itself has a historical walk marked out around its town centre.
The Tiverton / Uplowman area
Tiverton is a place of interest with the history of the Heathcoat fabric factory, and John Heathcoat himself, lived in St. Peter Street, near to the town centre.
Tiverton is primarily a market town, with a market taking place every day and a car boot sale on the Sunday.
Near to there, Uplowman, where we're based is still very much a rural village, just 10 minutes drive from Tiverton. In the other direction, Bampton, is also a small town selling a lot of local produce from their fruit & veg and butcher's shops. Sampford Peverill, a 5-10 minute drive away has a farm shop, tennis courts, play area, and also the golf course and nearby railway station.
Sampford Peverill is a part of the canal walk, the basin starting in Tiverton. Along here is a traditional horse drawn barge offering trips along the canal in the Summer season, a tea room, including a floating one on a barge itself.

Angela was very helpful and easy to contact when we were planning our stay. Able to cater for individual needs. Flexible about arrival details, gave good advice about nearby services. Amazing house, beautifully maintained. Perfect atmosphere for our wedding weekend (wedding at another venue but all friends stayed at the house for the weekend). Fantastically equipped kitchen, 22 of us fitted very tightly round the table for meals. Hot tub was good fun. Easy to find with directions.

I cannot fault Coombe Farm. It was my 30th and a large group of us, and Angela and Tim couldnt have been more accomodating, they were totally relaxed and we forgot they were on site! the house is beautiful, we all felt as though it was 'ours' for thr weekend and didnt want to leave! it was very well equipped for parties, cooking and everything, and the dressing up box made for some amusing photos!! it snowed heavily in the few days before so we were worried we might not make it but Angela took all the stress out of it. we had an amazing few days and would love to come back!!!

Coombe Farm is a magical place to get married. Tim and Angela the lovely proprietors go way beyond the call of duty when it comes to making their guests feel welcome and seeing to their needs.
The 17th century Farmhouse is beautiful and is decorated with Tim's amazing photography, my folks said it was far superior to any 5 star hotel in their opinion. It's warm, comfortable, spacious and unpretentious. It feels like home and none of us wanted to leave at the end of the weekend.
The campers had a marvellous time too, the facilities are all great but the highlight for them was probably the opportunity to have a lovely warm hot-tub first thing in the morning followed by a dip in the pool if they were feeling energetic.
The cider barn is a magnificent venue for meals, speeches and dancing and this flexibility along with the extra space in a very reasonably priced marquee, ensured we had ample room to cater the event ourselves.
The best weekend of my life, without a shadow of a doubt. Thank you to all involved :o)
