We stayed at the cottage from 23rd December to the 1st January. We had a lovely time there. The log fire was wonderful. We found everything we needed for our stay and would use the cottage again should I go to Barnstable. Thanks for the wine and the lovely homemade cake.
This was a beautiful goos sized cottage, with a lovely welcome feeling with a superb lemon drizzle cake and bottle of wine. Fantastic location to base any day trips from, we will be returning for sure.
Great cottage with easy driving access to Barnstaple. The cottage is not hard to find if you follow the instructions (we went down the wrong track but Laurence & kids came out to point us in the right direction). The beds could be a bit more comfortable, even the double bed could use a mattress topper. Firewood is in the little shed by the front door so we never went cold, although some instructions on how to build a fire would be useful for townies like us! The kitchen has everything you could need. One tip, take some pound coins with you if you decide to use the indoor pool that's shared with a few other cottages: the pool is warm and clean, & we had it to ourselves which was lush, but hadn't realised the hot tub and sauna cost extra. It's a short drive from the cottage so once we were in our swimming gear it wasn't worth driving back for a coin. Overall this is a welcoming, cosy home which was good value for money and the owners made a great effort to make us feel comfortable.
My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Courtyard Cottage. The Cottage has plenty of character as it is several hundred years old. Very clean and roomy with parking right next to the cottage as well as a decent sized garden with bench and chairs at the back.
We really enjoyed our stay here and the location means you are very handily placed for trips to Barnstaple, Croyde, Ilfracombe, Coombe Martin, Wollacombe, Morthoe as well as a great local pub and art hotel. Fully recommended.
