In a peaceful setting not far from Bath, The Wheatsheaf Combe Hay is the sort of country pub and restaurant it’s a pleasure to come across on your travels – and it’s now much more besides. Charming rooms and top-notch glamping tents give you the chance to stay even longer and enjoy the green surroundings.
A selection of bell tents overlook the Combe Hay Valley, perfect for two with a king-size bed dressed with luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, and feather and down duvet and pillows. Each tent has its own shower room with a rainwater shower, luxurious White Company toiletries and fluffy towels and bathrobes, plus there’s a warming log-burner and tea and coffee facilities with some homemade treats waiting for you.
Even better, breakfast is provided for you each morning – one of the advantages of having the creative Wheatsheaf kitchen so close. You also have deckchairs and a table outside, so you can take in the views with a glass of wine in hand. Not a bad way to spend an evening.
There are other options for guests who don't fancy the glamping tent experience. The Wendy House is a superior king suite with a high level of comfort. As well as another sumptuous king-size bed, you have a flatscreen TV and free Wi-Fi, plus a welcome basket of treats, teas and coffees. In rustic style with an outdoor terrace of its own, the calm accommodation includes an en suite shower room with slippers, bath robes and toiletries – a lovely destination for some peace and quiet in the country.
Finally, The Shed houses another three elegant rooms, dressed in a more contemporary style. Again, you get a king-size bed and a high-quality en suite shower room, and the furnishings are simple but eye-catching. On arrival, a ‘tuck box’ is waiting with freshly ground Italian coffee and a cafetiere, teas, hot chocolate and more treats.
Speaking of which, be sure to pop into The Wheatsheaf to samples its real ales and fine wines, and of course the delicious food on offer – ingredients are often seasonal and local, particularly in the case of fresh fruit and vegetables from the pub’s own kitchen garden. Wood-fired pizzas in the garden are a menu highlight, along with regular Tuesday steak nights and Sunday lunches with a regional flavour.
With Bath less than five miles away, and Bristol around 15 miles, two of the Westcountry’s finest cities are in reach, not to mention the natural beauty of the Cotswolds and Mendips – the Combe Hay Valley really is one special location.
