About Courtyard Cottage

Courtyard Cottage is a beautifully renovated two bedroom holiday cottage sitting in the peaceful North Devon countryside just outside the market town of Barnstaple. With a spacious master bedroom and a second twin room, it is a perfect self-catering retreat for couples, small families or friends. The open plan living space with underfloor heating and a wood burning stove offers a comfortable and cosy place to put up your feet at the end of the day, whilst the four outside seating areas provide plenty of opportunity for alfresco dining during the summer months. Whilst Courtyard Cottage is tucked away in the rolling countryside, it is just a short drive to all the amenities in Barnstaple as well as the wilderness of Exmoor or the salty sea air on the North Devon coast.

The bustling town of Barnstable with it's array of eateries and independent shops is the perfect place to stock up on provisions and enjoy a leisurely lunch. Browse the local produce at the Pannier Market, visit the museum or if you are feeling energetic you can enjoy 30 miles of traffic free cycling or walking along the Tarka Trail. Pick up a picnic from Barnstaple or refuel at one of the many cafes along the way as you meander through wooded valleys, ancient villages and stunning river estuaries.

No holiday to Courtyard Cottage would be complete without visiting the rugged moors of Exmoor. It's just a 20 minute drive to the edge of the National Park where you will find wild ponies, ancient forests and a dramatic coastline. Whether you choose to lace up your walking boots and explore the heather-clad hills, dip your toes in the sea or simply enjoy a traditional cream tea in one of the pretty villages, you cannot fail to be wooed by this mystical landscape. Alternatively, head to one of North Devon's stunning sandy beaches for your fill of sand, sea and surf. The popular surf spots of Woolecombe, Saunton Sands, Croyde and Westward Ho! beach are all less than half an hour away. Join a surf school, hire a board or simply enjoy digging your toes in the warm sand as you settle down in your deckchair for the day. If you want to explore the area further, other local attractions include Exmoor Zoo, RHS Garden Rosemoor and Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum.

With the choice of beautiful beaches, magical moorland and stunning countryside on your doorstep, it is easy to find a new adventure for each day of your holiday. Alternatively, enjoy a more relaxed pace of life and simply sit back and enjoy your second (or third!) cup of coffee as you admire the beautiful North Devon countryside from your private bedroom terrace.

Location (Devon)

Decorated in tasteful blue and white coastal hues, this charming cottage sits amongst stunning countryside in rural North Devon. Accommodation is all on one level.

Accommodation comprises:

  • Stunning open plan kitchen/dining and living area provides an ideal space to relax at the end of the day. Stretch out on the large corner sofa with a good book or snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove whilst watching a movie on the Smart TV. With underfloor heating this sociable space is cosy all year round.
  • You will find everything you need for a self-catering holiday in the smart well equipped kitchen including an induction hob, dishwasher and Nespresso coffee machine. The pine dining table seats four.
  • Light and airy master bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite shower room with WC and wash basin. French doors lead onto a paved terraced area which is a lovely spot for a peaceful morning coffee or a night cap before bed.
  • Twin bedroom has two full size single beds. Upon request these can be pushed together, but please note they are not zip and link beds. Both bedrooms are finished to a high standard and have USB sockets.
  • Family bathroom with a large walk-in rainwater shower, electric towel heater, demisting mirror, wash basin and WC.

Outside: There is no garden at Courtyard Cottage, but with four separate outdoor seating areas with two tables and six chairs, you will be spoilt for choice with places to sit and relax as you take in the beautiful surrounding countryside. There is storage for bikes and surf boards and an outside tap and hose to wash off muddy bikes or boots. Off road parking for two cars.

Additional information: WiFi, bed linen, towels and utilities are included. A high chair and travel cot (no linen) are available on request. Pet free. Please note that whilst the accommodation is all on one level it may not be suitable for those with mobility issues as there is a step from the kitchen to the twin bedroom and family bathroom and there are a number of slopes and steps outside.
