Welcome to Kingcombe

We are pleased to say that The Kingcombe Centre is now open to the public. We have introduced some measures to unsure that we are Covid compliant but look forward to welcoming you back once again. For the time being our tea room remains self service and we are only offering hot and cold drinks and take away ice creams at this time.       

We have opened the Pound Cottage car park (entrance just before the main car park) and you are welcome to continue to enjoy the Kingcombe Meadows nature reserve and the centre grounds.

If you are booked on to any courses or events for the remainder of the year and  haven't heard from us, please get in touch here.

Set amidst winding country lanes, delightful rivers and superb, unspoilt countryside, the Kingcombe Centre is a place to relax and be inspired.

We run workshops, courses and events for all - from painting workshops to storytelling for children - there's something for everyone. You can see our brochure online here.

We have lots of accommodation including the Cowshed B&B for those on our workshops and residential courses, Beech Cottage for a family getaway, or why not try a romantic break in our unique Orchard Hut?

Take a stroll through our nearby Kingcombe Meadows and Powerstock Common nature reserves. Or why not join us for coffee and cake at our tearoom?

We look forward to welcoming you soon
