Coombe is tucked into its own sheltered valley free from light and noise pollution. Paradoxically it is also located ten minutes drive from Tiverton Parkway railway station, on the mainline to Exeter, Bristol and London, as well as junction 27 of the M5 motorway. We are 30 minutes drive from Exeter airport but not bothered by aircraft noise. For a detailed map or road by road directions please click on the links in the left hand menu.
