  • "What a wonderful holiday we have had at Courtyard Cottage!"

    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.

    Hi Stephen and Pam We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Courtyard Cottage and loved North Devon as much as we do ! We look forward to seeing you in Chittlehampton some time soon . Best wishes Ian and Karen Property Owner

  • "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. Fr Michael Vaughan and Fr Emmanuel Gili-Hammett.

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Courtyard Cottage . We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes Ian and Karen Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely relaxing week at courtyard cottage."

    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.

  • "Courtyard Cottage is a beautiful and impeccably clean house - it just smelt and looked so wonderful the moment we walked in - and it was a welcoming, cosy place to return to after a day out exploring the stunning surrounding North Devon coast."

    Chittlehampton is lovely too - a tiny village set in glorious countryside, and lovely to have a great pub within sight and less than a minute's walk of the front gate!

  • "The cottage was perfect."

    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.
