Full description

Lower Coombe Royal was built in the early 1900s in the valley below Combe Royal. Shortly after, in 1912, the estate was divided and sold. The larger part of the garden, some 8 acres, went with Lower Coombe Royal. Both houses have had a chequered history and over recent decades neither garden has received the love and attention they deserve. The current owners of Lower Coombe Royal, however, have embarked on a restoration plan of both house and garden.
