“Military history re-lived!”

Cobbaton Combat Collection
Ranked #9 of 40 things to do in Bideford
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 October 2017 via mobile

Museums are museums, Cobbaton is something else, it’s much more real and alive and found in a oasis of nature.

A marvelous collection of historical artifacts from various Wars, from modern day to colonial days, Tanks, Arms, equipment, and much more!

Wonderful place to visit for some hours, alone or w family. A pre interest in history and war stuff will be beneficial but not nessecary.

Kevin's idea of heaven! That said I really enjoyed the visit, there is so much there to look at, we even found from packages from Chilwell Depot where Kevin completed his apprenticeship! and I found a game that I used to play at my Grandparents house. Conclusion on visit is that Kevin wants to retire and restore Centurians and Churchills

Really enjoyed our time here, the helpful staff and tea in enamel cups from the NAAFI van just added to the experience. So much to see here and so atmospheric.

Quite a drive to find the place, but a nice little attraction for military lovers. It does look a little tired and could do with a little t l c. for example - cleaning, better dummies, lighting of displays. Lots of interesting items and the N.A.F.F.I truck cafe was very reasonably priced. Loved my tea in an enamel mug! Shop with different military items for sale and a lot of bargains.Could just do with a bit of an update, but we enjoyed the visit and everyone there were very friendly and made you feel welcome.
