  • "Absolutely beautiful house situated in beautiful countryside and close to beaches and other wonderful days out."

    Grandchildren loved playing on the trampoline and tree swing, they also enjoyed racing around the gardens and playing hide and seek. Simply perfect.

  • "We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Culverwells."

    There was nine of us. We were there more than normal due to the inclement weather. It was a very comfortable home from home. The garden was a real bonus with the expanse of grass the tree swing and the trampoline. Thank you.

  • "A little confusion regarding rubbish/recycling."

    We did our best, but some rubbish had been left by previous holiday residents. Excellent holiday cottage for our family of 6 which included our young granddaughter of 2 years. She thoroughly enjoyed the trampoline. Would love to return another year.

    But overall the cottage, garden and views were great. Sykes cottages were excellent, when I made enquiries the service given was quick and helpful.

  • "Loved our stay at Culverwells!"

    Beautiful family home in a great location. Fabulous countryside views. Beautiful garden. We really felt at home there. Our daughter loved the trampoline and tree swing! The house is equipped with everything you’d need for your holiday. Lovely bottle of local wine to greet us on our arrival, which was a lovely touch! The cottage has been beautifully and sympathetically restored and is super warm and cozy! Very comfortable beds. There’s such a nice feel to the property. If walls could talk I’m sure they’d tell tales of many happy holidays!

  • "Culverwells is a beautiful home."

    With everything on hand. Fantastic conservatory with open views to enjoy. Cosy rooms with space for large families. Enclosed garden for the dog to safely play. Good location to visit the coast.

  • "While the property was indeed lovely."

    I have to take issue with it being marketed as dog friendly. With signs plastered everywhere that dogs are to be kept only in the kitchen area, This is not mentioned anywhere on your website. You don’t realise until you arrive. I have no problems with dogs not being allowed upstairs, but being confined to one area only is NOT dog friendly. It’s dog tolerant at best. This should be mentioned before you book and travel.

    Thankyou for your feedback. The Owner has confirmed dogs are allowed in areas downstairs that have tiled flooring (kitchen/dining and garden room area). Property Owner

  • "We had an absolutely fantastic week staying at Culverwells."

    The gardens were huge and the children had plenty of room to play whilst we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful views. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept very well. Plenty of living space allowing more than enough room for two families. Well situated for both Dorset and Devon and a short car ride to the beach. A short walk to the local village, Dalwood, which has a shop and pub and some beautiful walks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if we visit the area again we will definitely look to stay at Culverwells again.

    The two sofas in lounge were very low and elderly parents were unable to sit in them. Also recommend a stair gate to stop dogs going up stairs.

  • "Culverwells, was a lovely property to stay in."

    The information on the website doesn't make enough of the glorious views to rear of the property of hills and farmland. You can see for miles. We stayed there with another family. There were four adults and four young teenagers. The boys particularly enjoyed the piano in the lounge. The garden was lovely to run around in with a great rope swing. There is a recreation ground just up the road which the kids used too. The rooms were large enough for a short stay. We loved the jacuzzi bath and made good use of it. The house is just a short drive from Lyme Regis and Beer and there is a good farm shop called Millers a short drive away. The house is very pretty and had been renovated beautifully. Some doorways are low, so the taller of us had a few bumps. Just don't put your food bags on the heated floor as we did and end up with melted chocolate biscuits. I would recommend this property.

  • "Beautiful house with an amazing view."

    We stayed here for a week in August and loved the property. For us the rural location was perfect. The house was plenty big enough for our group (3 adults and 2 children). Our favourite part of the house was the dining room with its incredible views, also the abundance of toys for the children, especially the swing and trampoline in the garden. Stayed August 2017

  • "This property really has the WOW factor!"

    Situated in a beautifully quiet location, but close to Dalwood, with it's superb community shop and The Tuckers Arms which serves amazing food. I cannot think of anything negative to say about Culverwells. It has everything you need for a really relaxing holiday and is very well equipped. My 4 yesr old grandson had the time of his life playing in the garden, and with all the toys and games in the cottage. It's also a great place if you have a dog/dogs, but I would have liked to know prior to going that there are cattle in the adjoining field. My dogs were fine but it might be a problem for other people's pets. My grandson summed it up for us all when he said, 'can we stay here for ever!' Hopefully we will back, we loved it!

  • "Booking was all very straightforward and the organisation well executed."

    The property was excellent with everything we needed and was, if anything, better than we had expected. The only comment I would add is that it wasn't obvious who we should telephone if there was a problem. It would have been very helpful if there was a contact name and phone number on the paperwork we received. Fortunately we didn't need anything on this trip and the holiday was a great success. Thank you
