Handsome period home in magical private grounds, minutes from Kingsbridge


Lower Coombe Royal is surrounded by rolling South Hams countryside, yet is situated close to all amenities, with the bustling market town centre of Kingsbridge being less than a mile away. Kingsbridge offers a great selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs etc., a health centre, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, a cinema and the sought after Kingsbridge Community College (KCC), an outstanding secondary school. The stunning surfing beach of Bantham is some 5 miles distant which is overlooked by the highly regarded Thurlestone Golf Club.

Communications are excellent with the A38 Devon Expressway being 9 miles distant, providing direct access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the M5. A mainline train service to London (3 hours) is available from Totnes. The South Hams is famous for its spectacular coastline and the beautiful beaches and estuaries are all within easy reach.


Lower Coombe Royal is approached via a long private drive which passes through the most magnificent, mature park like grounds to arrive at a parking area in front of the house. Lower Coombe Royal currently operates as an extremely successful holiday let business and for this purpose the house has been divided into 3 units. The conversion has been carried out in a most sympathetic manner and with consideration to the fact that one might want to revert it back into one home, in which case the accommodation could provide 6 bedrooms and a self-contained apartment.

The substantial Edwardian house has a south/west facing aspect with French doors from both well proportioned reception rooms opening on to the balcony. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has an Aga and is well equipped with integral appliances and a dining area with French doors out to the terrace. The first floor is currently divided; in The Royal House there are 3 spacious double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. A connecting door provides access to Lawn Apartment which comprises two double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and an open plan kitchen and living area with access on to a large decked terrace which in turn leads out to the gardens. This apartment could be incorporated back into the main house with the open plan living area reverting to a bedroom with en suite facilities.

The Garden Rooms on the lower ground floor are accessed via both an internal staircase and externally from the garden. It provides excellent guest or holiday accommodation with an entrance hall, open plan kitchen with living and dining area and a bedroom with French doors out to the south facing terrace with an en suite bathroom and separate cloakroom.

The gardens and grounds are a significant attraction and provide all the amenity one would require in such a property. There are play areas for children, terraces for al fresco dining, wooded walks, open lawns, an ornamental pond and all planted with a huge variety of interesting plant species collected by Victorian plant hunters and horticulturalists. There are some unusual and rare plants and an amazing collection of camellias which were planted in the gardens in the 1800s.
