Possibly the best self catering accommodation we've ever had. Welcomed by a lovely fire and a basket full of goodies. A great location for exploring the northern side of Dartmoor and within a drive of Exmoor. Everything was what we wanted; spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Perfect!

We have just returned from four lovely days staying at Hopetown Cottage. We loved Eleanor's warm and generous hospitality. The cottage is exceptionally comfortable, spacious and well-appointed, a real home away from home. The gardens are exquisite and our two dogs had a wonderful time playing in the paddock. We would give Culverhayes six stars if we could.

After finishing a contract we wanted a quiet break away. The edge of Dartmoor in November may not be everyone's cup of tea but a stay at Spice Cottage gave us a great base for wandering the moors. Our first impressions were extremely favourable with a great welcome and a lit fire. The cottage is well equipped and we wanted... More

Hopetown cottage is situated at the end of a sweeping driveway past immaculate lawns that open out to the most amazing gardens. The cottages are very well presented and in perfect order throughout. A well stocked welcome hamper (inc.... More

The house is beautifully decorated and you will find everything you need.The huge garden is just amazing, which could be used by all of us. (The nectarines in the... More

We have just returned from a family holiday to Spice Cottage and I wanted to say that this was a fabulous place set in the most beautiful gardens you could imagine.

We enjoyed a relaxing break at Culverhayes, whilst on a trip to attend our daughter’s graduation ceremony from Exeter University. Our accommodation, Hopetown cottage, was charming, comfortable and spacious. The property is surrounded by beautiful gardens offering picturesque views from every window. The location is quiet and peaceful. We relaxed in the private patio area after spending the day out... More

I was led to Culverhayes by friends who have stayed year after year. They had once again rented both cottages and had a room to spare, I was attending an event in the area so the match was made. I cannot praise the cottages enough, there is nothing better than a hot bath and a soft bed after a hard... More
