Chittlehamholt is a delightful North Devon village in the rolling vales of “Tarka Country”, mid way between the River Taw and the River Mole. Chittlehamholt has easy access to the gentle beauty of Exmoor to the north and the stark grandeur of Dartmoor to the south. Chittlehamholt is only a short drive from the Portsmouth Arms station on the Barnstaple to Exeter 'Tarka Line', providing an opportunity to experience the charm of one of England’s most scenic rural train journeys. The area offers a wealth of outdoor pursuits including horse riding, walking, cycling, fishing on the Mole and the Taw plus golf at Chulmleigh, High Bickington and High Bullen, which also offers spa facilities and a range of sporting activities. National Trust properties such as Arlington Court, Lundy Island, Killerton and Knightshayes Court are all within easy reach, as are the glorious RHS gardens at Rosemoor. The stunning North Devon coastline with its towering cliffs and inviting beaches is just a short drive away with Westward Ho!, Woolacombe, Croyde, Saunton and Ilfracombe within easy reach.

Situated in the delightful Devon village of Chittlehamholt are these four fabulous North Devon cottages. Tucked away in a quiet courtyard of the picturesque 16th century Exeter Inn, three of these Devon cottages sit just a few yards from the Inn, whilst the fourth is a wing of the Inn with its own private entrance. Each of these Devon cottages contains all the modern conveniences that you would expect from a high quality holiday home with the added benefit of a choice of two restaurants at the Exeter Inn. These Devon cottages are ideally located between the Taw and Mole valleys, known locally as “Tarka the Otter” country, named after the classic novel by Henry Williamson. The Tarka Trail is within easy reach of these Devon holiday cottages, providing over 30 miles of traffic free cycling or walking through largely unspoilt countryside. There are a large number of golf courses near to these Devon cottages and the cottage owners can help organise golfing breaks, which can be tailored to your requirements. Just along the road from these Devon cottages is the Highbullen Golf & Country Club, which offers a range of sporting activities and a beauty spa. There are beautiful landscapes and seascapes to explore from these Devon cottages; from the wildness of Dartmoor to the soft hills of Exmoor, which roll gently towards the dramatic North Devon coastline, which boasts pretty villages including Clovelly, Appledore, Lynton and Lynmouth.
