Celebrating at Combe House

To celebrate our anniversary, we decided to push the boat out and go somewhere special for lunch.  You can't find any place more special than the Elizabethan manor house at Gittisham, called Combe House.


Set in lush Devon countryside, you travel through the picture book village of Gittisham, through the deer park to arrive at the beautifully preserved manor house.


Upon entering, you are greeted by welcoming staff and a roaring fire. Plush over-stuffed sofas and chairs create an environment that is elegant but comfortable.


  We had drinks and hor-d'oeuvres in the Library before being shown to our table in the Green Mural Dining Room.  The food was beautifully served and delicious.  The staff was kind, attentive and made us feel very special.

The large stone window casements framed the view of the rolling hills of the Devon countryside.

I must confess, I enjoyed my meal so much that I forgot to take photos to show you.  But dessert was a show stopper!



I'd like to say 'Thank you' to everyone at Combe House for a delicious anniversary celebration!
