Ashley Combe House:
The King family owned Ashley Combe, Yearnor, Culbone, Sparkhayes and Bratton near Minehead. Ashley Combe was an Italianate Lovelace mansion of 1866 and improved at great expense for William King and Ada’s honeymoon. It was built in the style of an Italian castle and there were several tunnels in the grounds. The house has been demolished but a group of estate cottages dating to 1936 still stand. There are some remains of the house, including the entrance to the serving wing, retaining walls and the remains of a covered garden.
