Culmhead House
Ranked #31 of 53 Taunton B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 11, 2010

We had a very comfortable, relaxing nights stay on a very cold frosty December night. We were all cosy in the Maple apartment and it was perfect for 4 adults and 2 young children. A cot was provided and highchairs for breakfast. We all enjoyed a very good breakfast and then a lovely walk around the grounds and enjoyed seeing the Alpaca and other animals.
Culhead house is in a beautiful location on the hills about 10 minutes from Taunton and we hope to stay there again.

Our company sends us all over the South West of England and this is best place we have been to. There is so much room in the suites and they are set in a great old house about five miles from the M5 motorway near Taunton. The owners prepared an early breakfast as we had to leave before other guests and that was well above average!
Thanks , looking forward to our next visit. Mike.

We have stayed here several times and on all occasions, we have received a friendly and hospitable welcome. Let's face it, if you didn't like it, you wouldn't go back. The accommodation is spacious, private and well equipped. Breakfast is taken in the dining room of the main house overlooking the gardens, and nothing seems to be too much trouble.

This is a country house, surrounded by woodland, mature tres, well kept gardens and an array of wildlife, including Alpacas. My family have enjoyed the gardens and the wlks around the house. There is an excellent pub only a few minutes drive, and the M5 is within 10 minutes making it an ideal stop off when heading south..

I recently stayed at Culmhead House. Situated in a delightful quiet area with extensive grounds. We received a warm welcome from the owners, who gave us plenty of suggestions regarding local attractions. The accommodation was clean and the the rooms large. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast in the morning.
There are plenty of local walks and a good selection of country/coastal pubs to sample and an excellent location for an enjoyable holiday.
I would highly recommend Culmhead House and hope to stay there again in 2011.

We have visited Culmhead regularly (4 or 5 times a year) for the last 5 years and love this place like a 2nd home. It is always our stay of choice if we are visiting the area. There are several different 'rooms' to stay in which are more like a very comfortable flat with the facilities available but within a lovely country house and grounds. We always feel so welcome, sleep so well there and the breakfasts are lovely. (You can also stay on a self catering basis). Culmhead is a wonderful place to stay & I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. I can't think of any negatives - there are great pubs/resaturants nearby and good access to nearby towns.

I stayed here earlier in the year (not for the first time) and i have just come across some of the reviews people have posted about Culmhead House and i have to say i cant believe them. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and welcoming, a beautiful house that is not a hotel which is exactly why i love to stay here.
The owners a wonderful, so friendly and will do as much as they possibly can to ensure me and my family have a great time staying there.
The ground are stunning and great for kids with plenty of space and wildlife.
I couldn't recommend this place more. Thank you Culmhead House for a wonderful stay.

Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay with us.
I am sorry your experience was not to your liking.
We offered you heaters so that you would not be cold. The rate you paid was set by our agents and we are informed that heating/ electricity charges are made by other holiday providers in the colder months of the year. We have often experienced this ourselves whilst traveling with our family.
Our website does state this clearly. The Manor House was built in 1850 and is draughty , that is part and parcel of ''old house living'', however that is why we offer extra heating at a fair cost. We are always happy to discuss your individual requirements at the time of booking or whilst you are staying.

The standard of our kitchen utensils comply with the regulations laid down by ''Visit England''
and are checked regularly. If any item comes to mind please inform us and we will look into changing it . We are three star and priced accordingly for self catering.
I also note you did not like our location, this is something we like but undersatnd others might not.
Again thank you for your comments and we will endeavour to improve to meet the requirements of our guests, remembering of course that this is our home as well.
