Farmhouse | 8 bedrooms | sleeps 16
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 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.
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.
