and background of Lower Coombe Royal
About us - Paul & Julie Williams
Lower Coombe Royal has been our home since 2017 when we moved to Devon from Beaconsfield.
We live on site with our three children, lots of chickens and some wonderful ducks!!
We are always around (apart from when we are at the beach) should you need help with anything, otherwise you will be left in peace to enjoy your time away from the hustle and bustle of your normal life!!
The grounds at Lower Coombe Royal
Our extensive gardens and woods make staying at Lower Coombe Royal a unique experience for all our guests. The gardens have more than a hundred varieties of red, pink and white camellia and many rhododendrons - some over 50 foot high! In the woods you will find a wonderful collection of native trees as well as silver fir, eucalyptus, a Japanese elm, a Judas tree, an enormous Magnolia and a huge Thuja. There is always something to catch the eye throughout the seasons, from winter berries to spring bulbs and apple blossom, summer flowers to flaming autumn Japanese maples.
The gardens and woods are full of wildlife - a resident buzzard, deer and fox families, rabbits, squirrels, woodpeckers, owls and jays as well as waterfowl by the ponds and the spotted flycatchers near the Royal House. A series of paths take you on an ever-changing journey around the grounds, from the formal garden to the lawns, the orchard and the woods, to the American Garden and the ponds, it's truly a voyage of discovery.
You can enjoy a peaceful stroll around the grounds, relax in the water gardens and enjoy watching the birds and ducks to the sound of the stream running by, or simply sit on one of the wooden benches dotted around the gardens, soaking up the views and seasonal colour.
