All the elegance of a 'Jane Austen' style home

Coombe House & Cottages in North Huish is an elegant five bedroom Georgian country house with four holiday cottages, a three bedroom annexe and an indoor pool all set in approximately 5 acres of fabulous grounds. Approximately 26 acres of surrounding land is available by separate negotiation.

Prunella Martin MA, Director of Prime Waterfront & Country House said: “This is an ideal house offering a change of lifestyle and a move to this beautiful part of the country, with capital and income potential, and it would also be ideal to house an extended family.”

North Huish, near South Brent in the South Hams is designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is an idyllic hamlet yet only 3 miles from the A38 with easy access to Exeter and Plymouth. 

The property dates back to the 1700s and has all the elegance of a 'Jane Austen' style home with large full length Georgian windows on the ground floor. The grounds are a delight, with streams, orchards and plenty of charming areas to sit and enjoy the tranquil setting.

The property is being sold with a detached barn which has been converted into four, two bedroom cottages, currently used as a successful holiday business. The current owners have arranged the accommodation so that the main house can also be rented out, offering sole use of the indoor swimming pool.

Coombe House & Cottages is offered for sale with a guide price of £1,250,000. For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Prime Waterfront & Country House department on 01548 857588. 

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
