Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a completely different type of Christmas this year? At Combrew, you can enjoy a relaxing festive holiday where you don’t have to lift a finger if you don’t want to - no work, no hassle, just pure relaxation and enjoyment in a home from home in the countryside. This year, put down the gloves and forget about picking a turkey; there are plenty of excellent restaurants and pubs nearby that will serve you a Christmas meal to remember. Or, if you prefer, you can cook in your cottage’s modern kitchen.
North Devon is the place to be to celebrate the New Year; there is fantastic entertainment and great firework displays in both Bideford and Barnstaple on New Year’s Eve. It is a local tradition to dress up to see the new year in - the atmosphere will definitely be something to remember! However, if that’s not your idea of fun, you can always stay beside the warmth of the log burner and welcome in the new year with a bottle of fizz, surrounded by your loved ones.
If you have a special romantic celebration each cottage can be occupied separately in complete privacy or for the larger family or group we have Rose Barn ( the combination of Rose Cottage & Barn Owl with secure interconnecting doors ) which sleeps 12 and The Round Retreat ( the combination of The Roundhouse & Tuckers Retreat ) which sleeps 13. Alternatively for the extra large group or indeed if you would like Combrew and all of it's many facilities to yourself then why not book the whole complex? All of our leisure facilities, including our wonderful indoor pool and spa, steam sauna, gym, indoor badminton court, games room, tennis court, adventure play area etc. are for the exclusive use of our cottage guests giving you our valued guests time for maximum enjoyment.
Please do feel free to call at anytime or email as your holiday enjoyment is important to us and we understand the planning involved - especially with larger groups of family and friends - often with individual requirements - we do always try our very best to help ensure that you have a wonderful holiday at Combrew!
