Food & beverage
The restaurant, recently refitted with specially commissioned handmade Cornish oak and walnut furniture, is where breakfast and dinner are served. The menu draws on recipes from all over the world, gleaned by the head chef Laurence Pratt from 15 years of service in the Royal Navy, where the VIPs he served included royalty and Heads of State. Though the menu has an international flavour, most of the ingredients are from Somerset. Meat and game come from local farms and shoots, fish from Brixham trawlers, shellfish from the Bristol Channel and many vegetables from the organic kitchen garden within the grounds. Light lunches are served in the bar as well as on the lawn in fine weather, and there is a comfortable lounge for morning and after-dinner drinks.
Each bedroom has its own individual style, elegantly decorated to retain the character of the building whilst being furnished to the highest standard. All rooms have an en suite bath and/or shower rooms. Superior rooms have good views over the gardens, larger beds, luxurious toiletries and Bumblebee bathrobes.
Please not that all children under 2 years stay free of charge when using own travel cot and bedding.
The 99 km² Quantock Hills is a place of outstanding natural beauty and a landscape of contrasts, from the many sheltered wooded valleys with sparkling streams (like at Combe House) to the open moorland on the hilltops. The hills are a paradise for walkers, and you do not have to go far for a sensational view.
