Welcome to Kingcombe


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 kids - 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. ~ The Kingcombe Team

The Centre is now closed to the public until the end of April, due to the increased threat from Coronavirus. This situation is under constant review due to the fast changing nature of current events and the eventual length of closure will be in line with Government advice.

We wish all of our customers and supporters well in these uncertain times and thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Kingcombe in the near future.

If you are booked in to any courses, events or B&B at the Centre during the closure period please bear with us as we will be in touch regarding your booking. Thank you for your patience.
