Coombe Dingle is a suburb of Bristol, centred near where the Hazel Brook tributary of the River Trym emerges from a limestone gorge bisecting the Blaise Castle Estate to join the main course of the Trym.

Historically this area formed part of the parish of Westbury on Trym, and is now part of Kingsweston Ward of the city of Bristol. South of Coombe Dingle is Sea Mills; to the north is Kingsweston Hill; to the west are Kings Weston House and Shirehampton Park; and to the east, Henbury Golf Club and Westbury on Trym.

The inhabited place appears simply as Combe, Coomb or Coombe, meaning 'short bowl-shaped valley', in documents from the 13th century onwards and on early maps. The name applied to Coombe Farm and Coombe House. This area later became noted for its cherry orchards.

Very much in partnership with its neighbour Westbury on Trym, Coombe Dingle is well regarding by everyone in the locality for its suburb is almost like being in the country. A small haven from the city but still located in the city. Housing stock takes all forms here but for something really special look no further than Grove Road.

Coombe Dingle is perfect for anyone looking to enjoy a slower pace of life with all of the amenities enjoyed in a busy city. There are local shops on Westbury Lane and throughout nearby Stoke Bishop for all your day to day needs, and you can easily access the city centre just five miles away.
