Child-friendly holiday cottages with indoor pool in Witheridge, Devon


Situated centrally in Devon’s rural heartland between Exmoor and Dartmoor, on the sunny side of a wooded valley, South Coombe is the perfect holiday retreat giving visitors easy access to Devon’s glorious moorlands, beaches and a fabulous range of attractions. 

Let your morning be filled with the smell of freshly baked organic bread and French pastries delivered to your door. There’s a meadow for ball games, a children’s playground in the orchard and a gentle stream to sit beside for impromptu picnics. An indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, gym (extra charge) and games room (charges apply to some activities) add to your relaxing cottage holiday.  

You can also travel to the Grand Western Canal and take a trip on one of the four remaining horse-drawn barges in the UK. The pretty village of Witheridge is located just a mile away and has a village store/post office, newsagent and two pubs both serving an extensive range of food and local real ales.

With our Master Cancel policy, you can cancel for any reason any time from 60 days up to 2 days before the start of your holiday, so you can book with confidence. This doesn’t cover you for the last 2 days before arrival, so we would still recommend that you get UK travel insurance (just in case you were unable to travel at the last minute, due to health reasons for example), but at least it does give peace of mind, and you can book with confidence.

Meet the owner

Simon & Clare Clarke

Welcome to South Coombe. We are Clare and Simon Clarke and we would be delighted to welcome you to one of our beautiful cottages set in a wooded valley in the heart of Devon. South Coombe is our passion and it receives 100% of our time - we don't do anything else! Come and see why we never want to leave and why our guests return time after time to enjoy the peace and tranquility, where children can play in safety away from the normal stresses and strains of every day life. Our style is to be involved with our guests where they want us to be, and to leave them free to enjoy their holiday if that is their preference. Every day is different and exciting. Come and experience it for yourselves! We will be here to welcome you and show you to your cottage.
