For your comfort, the swimming pool building is fitted with underfloor heating, so that you don’t experience the shock of a cold floor upon climbing out of the warm water!
Take a brisk swim at one end of the pool, before letting the bubbling water give you a relaxing hydrotherapy massage at the other. The effects of bubbling water are incomparable for maintaining shape, promoting blood circulation, and re-oxygenating skin cells, as well as for relieving tension, fatigue, rheumatism, and arthritis. For a more challenging workout, work your muscles by swimming against the high-powered jets muscles – it’s like taking on the Channel!

Head to the Tarka Trail and explore the beautiful North Devon on two wheels
North Devon’s famous Tarka Trail stretches 30 miles from Braunton to Meeth, and enjoys beautiful views of the coast and countryside. The trail uses old railway lines and so is fairly flat throughout, meaning that the whole family can come along for the ride. In fact, the Tarka Trail is a wonderful place for teaching your children how to ride a bike! You will see reminders of the track’s history at various points along the route, including old signage, decommissioned trains, and disused railway stations.
You can pick up the trail just minutes from Combrew - many of our guests take day trips to Instow Beach, or head to Fremington Quay Café for lunch. We have bikes and safety helmets available for guests meaning your ride can start right from your cottage - many of our regulars like to cycle down to Fremington Quay Cafe for breakfast, the cafe is just where you join the Tarka Trail.
