Gardens Grounds and Views
The Holcombe Inn is surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds which all look over far reaching countryside views. We are in a position which gives us spectacular sunsets most evenings in summer months especially. A well known destination for an evening sundowner, perhaps a cocktail, a local ale or a chilled glass of white wine to watch the sunset.
We have a large family garden with patio looking over to Downside Abbey, plenty of garden seating for al fresco dining or drinks with friends or family. There is a children's bucket swing, see saw , rocker horse and sandpit for little ones.
Beyond the family garden is our tranquility Gardens for Adults to enjoy grown up time just chilling in one of the "snuggle beds", hammock or luxury seating. Food & Drink can also be enjoyed throughout The Tranquillity gardens... A very popular spot for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
In the Tranquility gardens are our kitchen gardens where a great amount of our vegetables are grown. You will often see our chefs out selecting vegetables, fruit and herbs for the kitchens. Here you will also see our family of White Doves around their Splendid Dovecote along with a happy bunch of rare breed chickens who supply us with some wonderful eggs daily. Sit amongst the scented flower beds and watch it all going on!
