Combe was a village that lay in a deep valley east of Staddle (which was on the eastern side of Bree-hill opposite of Bree).[1] The village took its name from its location: combe is an old word for a valley, and the same element appears in 'Deeping-coomb', a valley in the White Mountains far to the south of the Bree-land.

Etymology

Old English cumb means "hollow, valley", cognate to Welsh cwm.

Portrayals in Adaptations

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Combe is a busy village that is visted by the player during Stirrings in the Darkness. Weary travelers can relax and drink in the Comb and Wattle Inn. The village is commanded by Constable Underhill.
