The Calancombe Estate is situated just off the B3196, near Modbury, about 2 miles south of the A38, in South Devon. Because the final mile to the Estate is narrow, we would encourage visitors to approach from the East, via PL21 0HR, and depart to the West towards Modbury.
Also because the lane is narrow with limited passing places and is used by horse-riders, cyclists and runners please do drive SLOWLY and CAREFULLY.
Drivers, please note that we will provide spittoons during the tasting element of the experience, to the extent permitted under COVID rules, and wines are served in sample measures. Also water will be provided, if preferred, in place of the wine tasting and for visitors under the age of 18. Please do not drink and drive.
WHAT TO WEAR
Please wear outdoor shoes or boots for the tour of the vineyard and orchards. They can be wet and muddy at times. We would really appreciate it if you would wear clean shoes for the tour of the winery building and in the wine-tasting area.
The vineyard is fairly steep and the ground is uneven places and is not suitable for wheelchairs or anyone unsteady on their feet.
The tour involves a fair amount of standing in both the vineyard and winery.
The tours go ahead in all weathers (rain or shine!) although if the weather is really bad we will spend the first part of the tour inside talking you through what we do in the vineyard over a cup of coffee or tea instead.
It is often cool in the winery, even when its warm outside, so please do bring something warm to wear just in case!
Dogs are allowed in the vineyard but they must be kept on a lead at all times and owners must clean up after them using appropriate bags, and the bags must be taken away from the Estate. Unfortunately, we cannot allow dogs in the cellar door shop, tasting areas or winery.
Our guided tours, tastings and masterclasses are not suitable for children but we are happy to welcome children in the vineyard and cellar door shop as long as they are accompanied by an adult at all times. Guests with children are welcome to book a self-guided tour online or on arrival at the Estate. Alternatively, children are welcome to take part in privately booked events
The vineyard and orchards are quite steep and would represent a challenge for those with limited mobility. However, the winery and downstairs tasting area is fully accessible, so please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
