This stunning cottage is quietly situated down a private drive in a beautiful rural setting, yet is within a short walk of the village pub. A convenient 10 minute drive from the A30 makes it a great base for touring.

The city of Exeter, is a 30 minute drive away, with its picturesque cathedral and it is a must-see when coming to this part of the world, with its cobbled streets and array of shops and restaurants. Other attractions within easy reach are RHS Rosemoor for aspiring gardeners, the well-known Tarka Trail and Granite Way, great for those wishing to take long walks or cycle rides, numerous National Trust properties, Crealy Devon, as well as the well-known fishing lakes at 'Spires' which are under a mile.

Enter the property from the courtyard and step into a long hallway, turning right leads into the delightful lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area has an impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams and cosy wood burner. Here you can relax and enjoy watching your favourite programme on the TV or take time to enjoy a DVD. The lounge and dining area has French doors leading to the patio and private garden. The kitchen is well-equipped and is perfect to try out some new recipes or cook some old family favourites. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Back in the hallway are two of the three bedrooms; the master king-size bedroom shares a Jack and Jill bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC with the single bedroom. There is also a useful separate WC off the hallway. Climbing the stairs from the lounge area is the secret loft room, an open-plan twin bedroom with seating area and shower room.

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. It had everything we needed for a relaxing break.

The cottages location was peaceful and beautiful. Inside there was everything you could need, including a cream tea! The lady who met us was lovely and made us feel welcome. There was a wood burner with logs and firelighters ready to use. Everything was of high quality, including goose feather and down pillows and duvets. Would definitely stay hereRead more again and couldnt recommend it enough. It was beautiful and felt like home for a week. Hide

Spice cottage at Culverhayes was amazing. From the homemade scones, jam and cream on arrival (even supplied milk for tea!) to the croquet matches on the front lawn, everything was excellent. Marlyn and Eleanor are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble, even letting us pick their fresh fruit and veg. Will definately book for the third time.

Charming cottage, providing 5 star comfort in delightful grounds of a Victorian Rectory, on the fringes of an historic, picturesque Hamlet. The property is one of two, owned by two sisters who greeted us warmly on arrival. They couldn't have been more helpful during our stay yet gave us (and our dog) privacy to enjoy their breathtaking 8 acre gardeRead morens. Property a short walk from the local Inn which serves excellent food. Church bells ringing added to the atmosphere of rural England at its best. Hide

We absolutely loved this cottage - it felt like a home rather than just a holiday cottage. It is tastefully decorated, very comfortable and with very thoughtful welcome touches from Eleanor - tasty home made scones and lovely flowers from the garden. The grounds are beautiful and we were welcome to walk all around them. The cottage is perfectly locRead moreated for touring around Devon and surrounding areas and it has a delightful pub in the village serving some of the best food around! Hide
