  • testimonial I think the fact that we came back for a second visit proves how much we like Higher Wiscombe. This time we were celebrating an 85th birthday. What we love is that each room has an en-suite bathroom and the kitchen can seat us all for meals. We spent the weekend eating, drinking and playing games around the enormous table.
