Spice Cottage (3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5)

Spice Cottage has been refurbished and fully equipped to the highest possible standard. As with Hopetown Cottage there are exposed oak beams and a log burning stove to create a cosy comfortable stay. There is a fully integrated kitchen with fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave which leads to a dining and lounge area. Double doors open onto a paved patio with wooden table and chairs. The master bedroom with its king size bed shares a "Jack and Jill" bathroom with a single bedroom. A cloakroom and toilet are also downstairs. Climb the stairs to the "secret" loft galleried room to find an open planned twin bedded room with sitting area and en suite shower. This room has limited headroom but is ideal for children and anyone not over 6' tall. Our small guests particularly love this room. Heating is by radiator in all rooms. Laura Ashley oak furniture and settees make the cottage very comfortable indeed. DVD/CDs DAB Radio and wireless internet link.

About the property


Set in 10 acres of West Devon's unspoilt countryside is Culverhayes which has two 17th century cob and stone cottages set in its grounds. Each cottage has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and has private gardens with wooden furniture and BBQs for outside entertaining. Situated in the village of Sampford Courtenay, a Devon heritage village "frozen in time" and famous for the Prayer Book Rebellion. There is a magnificent church, post office and a warm friendly 16th century thatched pub. The cottages are situated away from the well established tourist locations, offering peace and quiet, but only 4 miles from Dartmoor National Park and a half hour car journey from Exeter, a wonderful cathedral city. For aspiring gardeners there is Rosemoor and the Eden Project and for history lovers Torrington. Outdoor activities abound, horse riding, walking, cycling and fishing. Explore the many hamlets and villages. Sample the good quality food served in the quaint pubs.
