    Plenty of hot water, bed very comfortable, very spacious & quality furnishings. A few things needed attention & brought these to the owners attention, felt comfortable doing this. The washing machine is in fact a washer/dryer,

  • "We have just spent a glorious week at Lower Culvermead, a property that dates back to the 1400's."

    Set in rural Devon countryside it is an escapists dream, no planes, no over-bearing road noise, just perfect peace. We took our dog, Fergus, who took full advantage of the field, permitted access with the booking The property itself is capacious consisting of large lounge, well-fitted kitchen , a beautiful bedroom with a good sized en-suite. The decor of the whole property is of a high standard. Our feeling was of a trip back in time with all the luxury of modern conveniences. Our favourite part of the property was the secluded courtyard, which is a real sun-trap in the afternoon. The garden room is cool and comfortable, a great place to sit and read. The owners, Claire and Ru are friendly and approachable, they have created a wonderful holiday let, situated off the beaten track, nevertheless it is a property well worth the visit. We are already making plans to return

  • "We had a great stay at Lower Culvermead ."

    Claire & Rupert were great hosts nothing was too much trouble . The bed was very comfortable & good shower , plenty of hot water . Lots of crockery & so many cupboards , large fridge/freezer. The courtyard & garden room was delightful as was the field opposite to relax at the end of the day . Exactly as the pictures state . Not much Wi-Fi but no problem . Narrow lanes but then didn’t have any traffic - silent & very peaceful . Heard the owls in the night . Tavistock is a great town. 7 days brilliant sunshine

  • "We had a lovely stay at Lower Culvermede, thank you."

    The rooms were well proportioned and the decoration was modern in a historic setting. We have ordered the same duvet for our own bed earlier today. The property had everything we needed for the week with the added bonus of the field opposite to throw a ball for our dog. The weather was changeable so we didn’t make use of the private courtyard, but I imagine it would be good for breakfast. The cottage is well placed to visit various places in Devon and Cornwall. There were lots of leaflets and we particularly enjoyed Buckfast Abbey, walks on Dartmoor, dog friendly beaches, Boscastle harbour (we visited Tintagel Castle previously), and we had a good lunch at Royal William’s Yard. Tavistock has a few dog friendly cafes and was very handy for shops. Next time I visit I hope to visit all the lovely churches in the area.

    The use of an open field right opposite the cottage is brilliant for your pet to stretch its legs.
