  • "Great house - we had a great time unfortunately cut short by some of the group testing positive for Covid!"

    Only one quibble - the mattresses were too soft

  • "What a lovely house!"

    So much space for us all including grandchildren and dogs and was so clean and fresh. The garden was amazing and as the weather was so lovely we spent the whole weekend in there as nobody wanted to go anywhere else. Everything was provided and it really felt like home. Lovely to be able to get all the family together again which we haven't been able to do for two years. Lovely.

  • "An absolutely lovely cottage with ample space for all 11 of us."

    The owner is very friendly and welcoming. The facilities list does need updating as it lists 2 of most kitchen facilities but there is only 1 of each.

  • "Great family home, lots of space & everything that was needed by 8 adults."

  • "Lovely well equipped house, friendly and responsive owner."

    Plenty of space to park to the rear (could do with a light between parking and house). Highly recommended.

  • "A lovely big house that was perfect for us staying with family."

    The house has everything you need. The kids loved playing hide and seek in all the rooms and we loved the log burner in the evenings. The beds were really comfy and we slept well. The only negative to mention was the frustration of not being able to open any windows at the front of the house due to the cluster flies that would then come in. But I believe they are looking for hibernation at the time we stayed so other times of year might be okay. There are 2 bedrooms each with ensuite accessible from one set of stairs and 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms accessible from the other stairs. It worked perfectly for us and we had a great holiday. Its a lovely quiet location and a brilliant large garden for the kids to run about.

  • "Culverfield is quite a quirky property - original house plus large extension with 2 kitchens / 2 dining rooms and 2 lounges."

    This meant the 5 children aged between 7-13 had a great time their own wing BUT there is no access between bedrooms on first floor. The outdoor grassed area is vast and was greatly enjoyed by the children. The mention of ‘horses’ in the property description needs to be deleted as 2 young girls were disappointed that the stables were empty! The friendly owner / caretaker gave us lots of tips for where to go / what to see. The farm shop, 3 minutes walk away was very handy / the Tesco’s in Axminster was well stocked. 2 negatives - the local historic George Inn has closed and the local lanes are hazardous for walkers and joggers - fast traffic / no footpaths.

    It is the best equipped kitchen I have ever experienced Please amend details to show The George is closed

    There was so much space and I could quite happily live in this house! Many thanks to Pauline for a lovely week.

  • "Lovely location, surprisingly easy access to nearby towns considering how countrysidey it is."

    Plenty of outdoor space for our little one to run around in, and some bonus horses too. Owner really helpful and friendly. So much room inside. Really cosy, good electric showers and beautiful bath. Great view from the house; you can technically see the sea, but the Ax valley is the real show here. WiFi not really strong enough, but actual internet connection and 4g great are fine. There’s a little cottage a few doors down selling local honey and it’s delicious. We didn’t try the local pub, the local shop is well stocked but expensive and has no booze :-(. Check out the antiques place, huge variety and reasonable prices.

    What a superb place. Beautiful clean house, fantastic surroundings. Great location to travel and explore Devon. Pauline the owner is also fantastic, very helpful and recommend places to go. Its that nice we will be booking now for next year irrelevant of whether we are able to go abroad. All of us really didn't want to come home. Thank you Pauline for letting your beautiful house out

Culverfield is a homely cottage that is wonderfully suited to a gathering of family or friends, at any time of the year.

Offering an array of its own fantastic amenities, as well as being in close reach of many of Devon's delights, there's no better base for your countryside retreat.

Inside, the cottage boasts a range of social spaces to spend your time together; head into the open-plan living space, sure to be the social hub of your holiday, where you can find a selection of snug seating arrangements, decorated in pretty florals which add to the character of the traditionally-styled dwelling, or gather together around the dining table with a family-favourite meal prepared in the amply-equipped kitchen and toast to your wonderful retreat.

For time alone as a family, retreat to the sitting room, where you can find a warming woodburning stove at its centre offering a cosy spot to snuggle up in front of during the winter months, or sit at the table in the dining room for an evening of games.

At the end of a fun-filled day, find your own space to rest in one of the five spacious bedrooms, boasting wonderful, large bay windows with views over the rolling fields beyond.

Choose from the double bedroom, king-size bedroom, and super-king-size bedroom, all with quality furnishings and decor, or make the most of the en-suite bedrooms, made up of a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin with an en-suite bathroom, also doubling up as a spacious super-king-size upon request; this property ensures a variety of sleeping arrangements to cater to any group needs.

The luscious and large garden is a fantastic feature, especially in summer when you can let the dogs and the children run around to their heart's content whilst you relax beneath the sun and take in the views of the sea on a clear day.

Visit the local pub, The Tytherleigh Arms, for fabulous food and drinks.

Enjoy a lovely day out at Forde Abbey House and Gardens, a huge country house with extensive grounds and a garden centre and café, or discover the Axe Valley Wildlife Park home to a variety of animals from around the world including zebras, lemurs, and flamingos among many others.

About the location


Chardstock 1 mile; Axminster 4.5 miles; Chard 3 miles; Lyme Regis 8.5 miles.

Tytherleigh is a small village in Devon, on the Fosse Way Roman Road, very close to the borders of Somerset and Dorset, which it actually belonged to until the late 1800s. The village name was first recorded in the mid-12th century and is derived from an Old English phrase meaning ‘thin’ or ‘tender woodland’. Tytherleigh is now an excellent base for walkers, cyclists and horse riders exploring the West Country, with an excellent, dog-friendly pub serving delicious food. It is a short walk from a village shop and pub in Chardstock, and an easy drive to the popular towns of Axminster and Chard. Each have their own museum and Heritage Centres, interesting shops and wonderful inns serving good food and scrumptious local cider. If you ever doubted the beauty and majesty of this wonderful corner of England, please note that The Blackdown Hills, East Devon, and Dorset AONBs are all just stone’s throw away! You can be sure of picturesque picnic spots and mesmerising country vistas in every direction you look. The impressive Jurassic Coast is also a short drive away to the south, where you can scour the shoreline for fossils at Lyme Regis. An excellent base for friends and families holidaying in Devon.
