I came to Yapham Cottages in June 2011. It is so peaceful and relaxing. It is just like being on a permanent holiday!
I take great pleasure in welcoming our guests to Yapham Cottages. It is great chatting with the guests, and I really enjoy listening about the places they have visited whilst staying here. I can then share the "little gems" they have discovered with new guests.
I am delighted to say that many of my guests often become good friends, and keep coming back to visit us. Two couples have already been back twice since I took over, and they have already booked two more visits in 2012! I am also developing social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Guests enjoy keeping in touch with what is happening here at Yapham Cottages this way.
Martin purchased this cottage in 2011
What a difference moving to Yapham has made to my life! After the hectic bustle of life living near London, Devon is completely different. Life is much more sedate. No more traffic jams, pollution, or people rushing back and forth. Everything is so much more relaxed. It is just like being on a permanent holiday!
The people in Hartland are very welcoming, nothing is any trouble. They go out of their way to help.
It really is a great location. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity, this is it. The only other visible neighbour, is the farm on the opposite side of the lovely valley.
And yet the A39 is only a short drive away, giving easy access to Bude, Bideford, and Barnstaple. The Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks are within easy driving distance.
There are two fantastic reasons to stay with us at Yapham Cottages.
The first one is that it is a great place to come and chill out. You can leave work behind and just relax in your cottage. The cottages are in a quiet and secluded location. There is no traffic noise here. At night you can almost touch the stars up in the sky. You can take a walk through the orchard, stroll through our ancient woodland, or picnic in our paddock.
The Hartland Peninsula is a walker's paradise, with the South West Coast Path right on our doorstep. There is a never ending list of places to visit. Hartland Abbey and Docton Mill are both nearby. Each cottage contains guides for the local area, and further beyond in Devon and Cornwall.
You will never be left wondering, "What can we do today?"
The property was clean, well furnished & in good order. Nice touches such as the cream tea, tea & coffee & box of chocolates. Good location.
Cottage was well equipped, even down to providing wine, chocolates and fixings for a cream tea on arrival. This is a nature lovers paradise with countless birds at the feeder, bird food supplied, deer roaming the garden and a t night skills so clear we saw several planets and even a meteor. A short break but we never wanted to leave.
We stayed in Windbury cottage for a week in September and had a great week. We have been renting holiday cottages, mainly in Devon and Cornwall for about 30 years and Yapham Cottages stand out as a great find. From the start with the comprehensive information, booking, planning/tips, to the warm welcome and superb facilities, Martyn seems to have thought of everything. The cottages are in a great location for visiting the area and coastline, either walking or by car, and they are well equipped for simply relaxing, enjoying the gardens, surrounding woods and pond. We would highly recommend a visit!
We stayed in the Windbury cottage. We arrived much later than expected but Martin was still very welcoming.
Very nice touch with the scones, chocolate, wine, clotted cream, jam, flowers etc. The kitchen is fully stocked with every utensil you can think of. The area is very peaceful and beautiful and extremely well kept, we noticed Martin working very hard to keep the area beautiful.
Our kids got into the James Bond DVDs that were provided free of charge while my wife and I read books on our tablets. All in all we could not fault the cottage nor the service. We would definitely stay again.
If you have never visited the Hartland Peninsula in North Devon (which we had not) or you are a regular we can thoroughly recommend Yapham Cottages. There are three lovely cottages (2 Dog Friendly) in a very secluded location. Each cottage remains sufficiently separate to give you the peace and quiet you desire. The cottages are all very clean, spacious and the manager, Martin provides some welcome goodies such as a Devon Cream tea and a bottle of wine and chocolates. The Website is excellent and the booking process very efficient and well communicated. There is an orchard and another meadow for exercising the dog and the local walks and those a little further afield are easily accessed and take your breath away. At night there is no light pollution so the stars on a clear night (and we had a few) are a wonder to behold. I would definitely recommend Yapham and the Hartland area as a place to visit for walkers and in my case golfers as Royal North Devon and Saunton are in easy reach.
