Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Combe House Hotel is a privately owned country-house hotel in Somerset's Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hidden away in a wooded valley, this boutique property has 17 individually styled bedrooms and a cosy cottage feel.

Located in the village of Holford, the hotel is also a 30-minute drive from Taunton, Bridgwater and Minehead. Dunster Castle, a former motte and bailey castle that's now a grand country house, and Exmoor National Park, are also half an hour's drive away, while Tiverton Castle, Glastonbury Abbey and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare are within 50 minutes' drive.

Wookey Hole Caves -- an extensive network of limestone caves which is noted for the Witch of Wookey Hole -- is just over an hour's drive away.

The Woodland Hill circular walk passes right by the hotel. It will take you through open heathland and offers impressive views of the Somerset Levels, Mendip Hills, Bristol Channel and the Brecon Beacons.

The on-site restaurant and bar use produce from local suppliers, from Somerset cider to artisan cheese.

There was confusion over our bill for a meal and drinks. It has taken a couple of phone calls and an email to sort it out.

Not up to standard customer service. We had the feeling that the staff was doing us a favour. The food was also over priced in terms of quality and choice. Not happy with the room setup, especially the stairs into the bathroom.

The quiet location
Other Comments
We thought the restaurant was a little overpriced although the meal itself was of decent quality. Another minor point, was that we weren't offered our complimentary glass of prosecco. All-in-all a good stay though.
