  • "We loved our week in this cottage."

    The accommodation is very comfortable and well equipped and set in a beautiful little village. It is the perfect base from which to explore the wider area. RHS Rosemoor is well worth a visit as is the local St John's garden centre. Barnstaple is perfect for a mooch around the shops.

    Thank you so much for really super feedback Property Owner

  • "The standard of cleanliness was the highest we've seen."

    We were given full reign of the area around the cottage including the entrance courtyard, the bbq area and the lovely long secluded garden which were all used. The owners were very happy for us to have family visiting in the daytime a couple of days which gave us a lovely 'extended family' holiday. Beautiful part of Devon. We love the north Devon beaches so ideal location. Very friendly owners who kept to themselves unless needed. Would highly recommend.

    Thank you for your feedback . We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your holiday with us . Ian and Karen Property Owner

  • "Courtyard Cottage was the perfect home for our holiday."

    It was nice to walk into a clean, welcoming home after our long trip, and the cream tea and flowers were a lovely touch. The house is full of little, thoughtful touches such as automatic nightlights along the upstairs hallway and in the front room, and information booklets for the house and surrounding areas. The house was ideal for our family and our children (both under 7) loved playing in the garden. The location is nice and quiet but easy to get to local attractions. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely stay here again. Thank you to Ian and Karen!

    Thank you so much for your very kind words. It means so much that you enjoyed staying in Courtyard Cottage and that it contributed in a small way to your family holiday . Ian and Karen Property Owner

  • "Good Small Cottage with all basic necessities."

    However twin beds size in the 2nd room is shorter as compared to standard bed size, making it difficult for a normal adult to sleep on it. Although the cottage was neat and clean but we spotted a spider and another bug on duvets in the 2nd room. But owners are very nice and they allowed us to check in a bit earlier.

    Any and all feedback is much appreciated. Thank you. Property Owner

    Thank you, Karen and Ian, great hosts and lovely people! Loved the welcoming cream tea, delicious. Courtyard Cottage is spotlessly clean and everything you would ever need is available in the cottage. Very cosy. We managed to visit lots of places and returning to Courtyard to chill out was perfect. We will definitely look in if we are in Devon again.

  • "When we arrived weary from a very long journey we was greeted by Karen with a lovely warm smile which was nice considering the time we arrived."

    We walked into the cottage and boy its perfect ! What we noticed firstly was the lovely gifts Ian & Karen had left out, what a lovely welcoming. My wife has OCD and will wipe over sides clean cutlery etc but the cottage was so clean we just walked in and settled straight away. Clear instructions in all the rooms for how to use everything. In the kitchen particularly everything you could need had you forgotten anything, these guys really care about your stay. The village is lovely and quiet even on the busy periods. The church bells although ring for 2 hours on a Tuesday you could hardly hear them but it really didn't taint anything for our stay. The Pub is a must with lovely food and lovely people. We wouldn't hesitate to come back and hopefully in the future we can, it was a perfect stay away made better by the hosts Thank you Karen & Ian my only regret which I'm sure they both know is that I cant live there !!!

    Thank you so much for such a super review Property Owner

  • "Both myself and my friend who stayed with me thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Courtyard Cottage and Chittlehampton."

    Such a beautiful place. Ian and Karen were very welcoming, and it was lovely to have met them. The grounds were immaculately kept, and the cottage was beautiful. It was lovely to have Wi-Fi and all the programmes on the TV at night. The pub over the road was also welcoming early evening. Wonderful places to visit, easy to get to places for shopping. Small corner shop in village was handy for little things you need. Wonderful Walks about, and the church is a must to visit. The churchyard is also well kept. Lovely for a quiet retreat. Had wondered about the noise from the school adjacent, but didn't know school was open they were so quiet. Church bells rung Tuesday evening, we both loved the bells, couldn't really hear them from the cottage even though it was close to the church. I hope to go again in the near future. Thank you.

    It was spotlessly clean,every appliance and utensils you would ever need,lovely and warm, cosy lounge, it's a cottage i could easily live in, owners Ian and Karen met us on arrival and then left us to enjoy our stay, they are very friendly, the village is so quaint, and people very friendly. The history there is really interesting, parking isn't a problem, we shopped at tesco a few miles towards Barnstaple, where there is a lovely garden centre across the road,you are best walking to, which has a nice coffee shop and unusual things in it. I would definitely recommend this lovely quiet cottage if you want peace and quiet.

    It was faultlessly clean & the owners were really friendly & helpful. There's not a great deal in Chittlehampton itself but it's a great location for getting to pretty much everywhere you'll want to go. Scott's top tip - book the local pub (1 min walk from the cottage) as soon as possible, if you want to eat there.

  • "We had an absolutely lovely stay."

    Karen and Ian went above and beyond to make our stay like a home from home, including lending us flour for a meal one night and letting us use their tumble dryer so I could dry my daughters' comfort blankets. They were great at recommending local places to eat and visit, and the house itself was so cosy and comfy and spotless, too. The beds were really comfortable and there were lots of lovely added touches like the welcome basket of scones and milk. The living room was really comfy and it was great to have access to Netflix and other streaming apps so that our young daughters could watch their favourite TV while we cooked dinner. The garden was also beautiful, we just needed some sunshine to enjoy it! Thanks for a lovely stay and a huge thank you to Karen and Ian for looking after us so well.
