Our rehabilitation programme

Like all of our centres, Harcombe House is run by a team of dedicated professionals and having worked with the fire and rescue community for many years, our staff have built up an unrivalled knowledge of the treatments our beneficiaries require.

On admission, each individual receives a thorough assessment, so that a tailored one or two week residential programme can be developed to best aid personal recovery.

Holiday Rental

Holiday Rental Breaks

Did you know we offer rental breaks at our centres for members of the Fire and Rescue Community, their family and friends? Rental breaks are available all year round and include the flexibility of short breaks that can be taken over weekends or during the week (excluding school holidays where a minimum of a week must be booked).

Harcombe House provides an ideal base to access the many delights of Devon. A short drive will get you to the coast, head in another direction to reach the dramatic terrain of Dartmoor. Exeter is 10 miles away with its beautiful cathedral, pedestrian shopping area and historic quayside. Harcombe is ideally situated to provide ready access to these locations as well as a variety of family friendly activities nearby and plenty of cultural interest for grown-ups too. If a day out sounds too hectic you can enjoy the glorious views from your comfortable bungalow, walk in the 300 acres of woodland, wind down with a swim, enjoy a home cooked meal in our restaurant and finish off your day with a drink in the bar - perfect! 

Housed in a stunning Grade II listed property, commanding spectacular views of Dartmoor, Harcombe House is in the perfect place to relax and recover.

The main house has 23 en-suite guest rooms, with an additional 28 detached bungalows set in the grounds of the house.

Boasting 300 acres of woodlands as part of the estate, Harcombe House is the ideal base for those who wish to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.
