A really nice and peaceful place. Just what you are dreaming of when you are looking forward to a Devon country side stay. Very nice and very big rooms /apartments with kitchen etc. Clean and prober maintained. All in the right style and atmosphere. Outstanding service and friendly.

Culmhead house is absolutely stunning! We stayed in Mimosa which was huge for 2 people and baby. We loved it. The breakfast room and grounds are gorgeous. The location is fairly convenient and worth the drive from Taunton as its so quiet and peaceful in the morning. The owners are also lovely and breakfast was good. We would definitely stay... More

My first b&b. I must admit I am always hesitant when staying at other peoples' homes, though a b&b was the only choice in Taunton. Driving through the winding roads, you start to feel separated from the big city/ motorways etc. The innocence and purity of this place is why it is a 5 star. It is just the way... More

Very warm welcome from hosts, great care taken to ensure that our time of arrival could be accommodated. Nice style to the accommodation marks it out from the normal B & B. Breakfast good. What more do you need?

I stayed here again recently despite some small disappointments experienced on a Previous stay. I was impressed with my room (camellia) especially the excellent walk- in shower room.

Stayed here on a Saturday night whilst on business in the area. Lovely old country house with great walks in lovely grounds. We had the Beech suite. Bed and breakfast. Good value for two bedrooms full kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Excellent breakfast choices available and presented very well. Cooked English breakfast was a little disappointing in terms of quality and... More

Thank you for your comments. The bathroom was in fact booked in to be re-done the week after your stay and I should have explained this. Also I apologise for the fact you didn't manage to connect to the Wi-Fi. I didn't realise this and would have offered you the use of our hall to connect to BT broadband which... More

Six members (plus two three year olds) of our family descended on Culmhead House for half term week. Our welcome was warm and friendly, the owners very helpful. Our accommodation was clean, comfortable and the kitchens well equipped. We stayed in 'Beech' and 'Mimosa' a delightful time had by all.

Having visited Culmhead House previously, and explored much of the surrounding areas, we were delighted to re-visit as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The weather was much better this time, so we were able to explore the grounds in great detail and make friends with the alpacas / pigs / doves properly! The breakfast is top notch and I was... More
