Coombe is a settlement in the English county of Kent. It lies between Ash-next-Sandwich and Woodnesborough .

According to Edward Hasted in 1800, it was a hamlet in the western section of the parish of Woodnesborough.[1]

Coombe Lane passes through the small settlement between Ash towards New Street (heading to Woodnesborough). Coombe Lane Cottage is a Grade II Listed cottage on the lane.[2]


The village's name derives from Ancient Celtic cumbā "valley" which was taken into Old English. The name was recorded as æt cumban in 1005, the first word æt representing 'at'
