This Month We Love Travel 2019!
Combermere Abbey offers two different accommodation options – the luxury North Wing B&B and 10 unique self-catering cottages.
In the luxury B&B, guests have the choice of two sumptuous bedrooms – the Bhurtpore, an elegant wood-panelled room exuding history and charm, or the Salamanca, the epitome of luxury decorated in calming hues of pale blue and silver with an opulent marble clad bath
Converted from the 19th century former stables, each of Combermere’s award winning cottages is uniquely themed to reflect a part of the estate’s history. From four poster beds, to mullion windows and pointed turrets, the cottages are steeped in history whilst providing the utmost comfort. Sleeping from 4 to 10 guests, visitors will experience the tranquillity of the estate to its fullest with woodland walks right on the doorstep.
All cottages are also dog friendly. Guests are free to explore and enjoy the thousands of acres at Combermere Abbey. https://combermereabbey.co.uk/
