The photos on the website looked very inviting, so we were suprised on arrival to see the house in such a state of disrepair. The porch housed a dirty great birdcage which had droppings and feathers everywhere which had obviously not been cleaned up for months.Not a good first impression. Going up the staircase which was full of dust and... More

The Beech apartment was spacious, fully equipped and set in beautiful countryside. However, the bathroom and kitchen are very outdated. There was no hot water in either the kitchen or bathroom sink (used a kettle to heat water when washing dishes). There was only one lightbulb in the bathroom, the other three were not functioning. These were small things but... More

Thank you for your thoughts on your stay in our home. Your comments have been noted. I apologise for the fact that the hot water was not turned on for you, however had you told us we could have flicked the immersion on for you. I understand the shower was working as it is heated separately. Once again we thank... More

Extremely welcoming and friendly people me and my better half had lovely stay in the mimosa suite which was like a home from home, very well equipped with everything we could have needed and with amazing views and would highly recommend to our friends to stay here.

A very lovely apartment, well equipped and fantastic surroundings. We loved the alpacas and so did our little 18 month old son...and the trampoline and pigs! Susan was a kind host, cot and highchair provided and we had a very comfortable night's stay. The breakfast was top class, lovely Dorset cereals, a full English if you wanted and fresh pastries....

The location, food, service and ambience is of the highest standard. The proprietors are charming and interesting people and couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. We unreservedly recommend Culmhead House.

Culmhead House is a large old and beautiful house that offers B&B and self catering options in apartment accomodation. We booked through Hoseasons/Avios using some of our airmiles so had two agents to deal with. I did read all the reviews on trip advisor before booking so had a very clear overview (good and bad) of the place and the... More

We arrived on a Friday evening to a welcoming Culmhead House and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend, enjoying not only the food and the grounds but the beautiful surroundings of Taunton. Many thanks for a fantastic weekend, I have recommended Culmhead House to friends and family alike.

Well has the place changed! It was lovely last time but the gardens have come on so much and the room we stayed in has been nicely refurbished. The breakfast in the main dining room was very good and varied. Lots of fresh fruit, freshly baked croissants and bread. The eggs also are from theirchickens and they are fresh !!... More

We had a great time at Culmhead house. It was very comfortable and relaxing. We stayed in the Camellia room which was very peaceful and well fitted out. It had a great wet room! The grounds were lovely and we headed on down to south to Cornwall after a lovely breakfast. We would definitely go back.
