Key highlights

Don’t just take our word for it…

“Barnstaple is an excellent base for exploring North Devon and Courtyard Cottage couldn’t be situated better - a few minutes from the town centre (by car) but completely tucked away up a long private drive….beautifully decorated and equipped…this is probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in and is certainly high up on our list of places we would like to visit again” September 2021
