Set amongst 66 acres of meadows, woodland and oak-lined streams, Coombeshead Farm is a guesthouse, dining room and working farm offering glorious isolation near Launceston in Devon, alongside a bakery serving home grown seasonal produce onsite and to the local community. The restored dairy farm is a joint venture from chefs Tom Adams (D 01-06) and April Bloomfield.
In the Telegraph's recent review comparing the types of country house hotels they said of Coombeshead Farm "Tom Adams first fled London and settled at Coombeshead Farm, he offered just that: convivial communal meals to overnight guests staying in one of five charming farmhouse bedrooms. Now, thanks to the runaway success of his enterprise, which he shares with New York-based chef April Bloomfield, both house guests and outsiders eat brilliantly in a barn converted into a restaurant, but the sense of togetherness and of being led back to nature by people who are passionate about the good things in life is still palpably in place."
With no phone reception it is the perfect place to get away from it all.
It has had rave reviews in the press and some of them you can read here: https://coombesheadfarm.co.uk/blogs/press
