Useful Services

Check AvailabilityAs you prepare for your holiday at Lower Coombe Royal, you will probably think of things you'd like to arrange in advance. Below we have included some information on local services that our guests often ask us about.

In some cases, there is a supplier discount for Lower Coombe Royal guests, see below for details. If you think of something we haven't included, please call or email us and we'll try to find the answer for you.

Food shopping/ordering

We provide all guests with starter supplies of organic welcome items including tea, coffee, milk, sugar, salt and pepper, porridge and Susi's homemade organic muesli.

For guests staying a week or more, we also provide a complimentary hamper of organic and/or local produce and treats.

If you would like to order further supplies either just before or during your stay, here are some suggestions:

Riverford Delivers organic fruit & vegetables/salad in season boxes, dairy and meat boxes too. Free delivery

Aune Valley Local meat, dairy, preserves, bakery, juices, smokehouse and chilli products. Wonderful local service, free delivery Monday - Frdiay

The Local Food Company A local, greener alternative to the supermarket, they supply food, groceries, household and toiletries. Delivery £8.95, collection free

Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury's will deliver - as much as we do not like to promote supermarkets, they are a necessity at times! Delivery costs are variable

For reference, our address and postcode is Lower Coombe Royal, Kingsbridge, TQ7 4AD. Please quote the name of the property you are staying in and let us know in advance if you are ordering any food for delivery before your arrival, so that we can make arrangements to receive and store it for you correctly in your accommodation.


We maintain a list of local babysitters who have been interviewed and used by Susi in the past and many of our guests. References have also been taken and most babysitters have been CRB checked and/or have a First Aid certificate. Please ask if you are interested in booking a babysitter and we will provide you with details including feedback from other parents. If you have young children, this list will be automatically sent out with your final details when coming to stay with us.
