Property Description

With VisitBritain’s ‘4 star gold award’, this charming 300-year-old, Grade II listed, thatched cottage nestles within the half-thatched rural village of Chittlehampton with its village square and welcoming inn. One of a pair, Thatch Cottage is built from stone and cob and restored and equipped to a very high standard. The beautiful surrounding Devon countryside offers thatched cottages, lovely views, quiet villages and so much more within easy reach. Exmoor is nearby with waterfalls, walking, cycling, ponies and zoo. The excellent Tarka Trail for more car-free cycling and walking is 30 miles of former railway, with cycle hire, running around the Taw estuary only 20 minutes away. Also within easy reach are the many superb beaches of the Golden Coast of North Devon, Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe, for sandcastles and surfing, several excellent golf courses including the championship links course at Saunton, fishing on the Taw, renowned gardens, NT properties and sleepy, unspoilt villages with inns. The historic market town of South Molton, the "gateway to Exmoor", is nearby, with its regular markets, tea shops, restaurants, antique shops and swimming pool. Barnstaple is within easy reach, with its cinema, theatre, pannier market and variety of shops. Highbullen Hotel (3 miles) offers a 20 metre indoor pool and good gym for a low daily fee. Thatch Cottage is in a truly wonderful holiday location for all interests. Shop 300 yards, village inn serving food 200 yards.

  1. The Thatch Cottage is truly lovely. Quite modern inside and really clean. Home from home. The people in the village and the local pub are extremely friendly too. We had a lovely week. Dec 2012.
  2. It took us no time at all to settle in. This cottage is a real gem. Sept 2012.
  3. We have returned to this cottage for the sixth time this year, I think this gives some idea of what a very pleasurable experience a holiday there is. Sept 2012.
  4. Thatch cottage was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our New Year break. As others have said, it was extremely well equipped, very comfortable (especially the sofas!) and spotlessly clean. We were also delighted with the bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates left by the owners as a Christmas present! We can’t wait to go back. Dec 2011.
  5. The cottage was beautiful, very well appointed, in a quiet village. We settled in immediately. The local pub (5 min walk) with good food and real ale is a great asset. Instruction book written with a sense of humour. Travel to the local towns in not onerous. Bideford is lovely well worth doing the town walk. Lots of local seasonal products. We were recommended and it did not disappoint. Oct 2011.
  6. Typical ’chocolate box’ cottage from the outside, with all modern convenience on the inside. A perfect base for a holiday. Aug 2011.
  7. This was one of the best properties we have stayed in. Spotless and well equipped and fitted out, this was a great cottage to come home to after a good day out. South Molton, about a 10 minute drive, has plenty of shops (Supermarket close to the centre). June 2011.
  8. This cottage was first class could not fault anything, would recommend to friends and family, good location, good pubs locally. Would give this cottage 5* plus. April 2011.
