“Excellent!!”
Reviewed October 31, 2008

We have just come back after spending a wonderful October holiday in Devon. After getting a little lost we stumbled upon our destination at Culverhayes. We were absolutley gobsmacked when we arrived to this amazing estate. The owners were so welcoming and kind and made us feel as if we were staying with friends. Our cottage, Spice Cottage, was wonderful. When we arrived the fridge was full with everything we needed, there were newly baked warm scones waiting for us (delicious!!!!), a bottle of wine and the cottage was warm and inviting. We totally enjoyed our stay and lacked nothing. The cottage was kitted with everything and anything. Travelling with a 3 & a 4 year old can sometimes be difficult but not in Spice cottage. The children loved it and we went for wonderful walks on the ground, around the pond and enjoyed the scenery and privacy offered. The quality, decoration and everything in the cottage is of VERY high standard. I have never experienced such soft towels at any hotel or rental property!!

This place is a jewel! Culverhayes is an old mansion on ten beautifully landscaped acres, run by Eleanor Channing and her sister Marlyn. They have two rooms in the mansion that they rent out as bed and breakfast, and two cottages which have recently been created out of the barn and stables. It just couldn't be prettier. We rented a four-bedroom cottage, which was wonderful. Downstairs there was a cozy living room with a big fireplace and comfortable chairs and sofa, and a modern kitchen with a dining area that had french doors looking onto the grounds, with tables and chairs outside as well. The kitchen had everything necessary. All the amenities were high quality. They had left us a big basket filled with delicious foodstuffs - bread, jams, candy, wines - and in the refrigerator there was Devonshire cream, cheese, sausage, bacon and eggs. Upstairs were four bedrooms (one master suite with bath, one medium-size bedrrom and two small singles). The beds and covers were wonderful. Eleanor, Marlyn and their mother Ellen were as nice as could be. I felt like I was leaving friends when it was time to go. This place was perfectly wonderful. The ten acres has a pond and garden and beautiful plantings all over. You simply couldn't do better than Culverhayes.
