The property

Settled on the edge of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is this charming farmhouse within the village of Tytherleigh.

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, as well as The George Inn, a quaint thatched-roof pub in the neighbouring village of Chardstock.

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.

Roam the surrounding Areas of Outstanding Beauty, with endless walks and trails well-documented so you can explore the best of the area and experience the most stunning views and landscapes, or join the South Somerset Cycle Route at Ilminster and spend a day exploring the stunning West Country scenery.

Head down to the ancient Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis, 'The Pearl of Dorset', home to three beaches, and a picturesque town with quirky cafés, independent shops and a host of attractions like the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and a lively beachfront with amusements and watersports.

For a delightful holiday destination in Devon, stay at Culverfield with your loved ones.

About the location

TYTHERLEIGH

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.
