We stayed at Charter House for 2 nights in a family group of 8 adults and 4 young children. It was absolutely perfect for us, plenty of space and well equipped with everything you can think of.

The location was also great for visiting the local area. We went down to Hartland Quay and spent a day on Sandymouth Beach - Watch out when the tide comes in - it's fast! There's lots of other things to do but we weren't there long enough.

We will recommend to others and would definitely book again.

Great spacious house. Perfect for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

Great house with lots of space for a large group or several families. The kids and dogs loved the space and large enclosed garden. Close to lots of great beaches, perfect for exploring North Devon and Cornwall.

A spacious and comfortable holiday house.

  • 5 of 5

Charter House was ideal for our extended family weekend together. There was plenty of space, it was clean and tidy, comfortable, and very well-equipped. We chose it because of its location, and for the proximity of somewhere close at hand to eat out, although the Hart Inn appeared to have major staffing problems when we went there for what was supposed to be a celebratory meal.

I would recommend Charter House.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that the house had everything you needed and that you found it comfortably and spacious. Sorry to hear that there were some problems at The Hart Inn regarding staffing but hope that despite these you had a nice meal. I will mention your comment to the owner and hope that it will not put you off renting Charter House.

Fantastic location, huge amounts of space for all!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a fantastic family break. This house was amazing for our family, we had a party of 8 adults and 3 children. There was more than enough space for everyone. The bedrooms are massive, as is the garden so plenty of space for the children and dog to run around. The 2 living rooms were brilliant for us to all spread out if we needed to.

The house is in a great location in the centre of the village with 3 pubs locally, a local shop with everything you would need, a coffee shop/bakery.

There is brilliant access to the woods about a 10 minute walk away, which was ideal for walking the dog.

The house was clean and had all the essentials you would need. We had a brilliant stay and will book again for next year!

I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a large house for a big group of people, very reasonably priced fro the space you get!

Thank you again!

It really is as good as it looks.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 4 wonderful days at Charter House in Hartland. The house is welcoming, generously proportioned and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a mixed-age family group. We particularly relished its location situated centrally with local amenities and enjoyed a superb meal at the Hart Inn next door. The most spectacular coastline is a mere 3 miles away and the unique heritage village of Clovelly just 10 minutes drive. We would highly recommend booking Charter House whatever the season. It really is as good as it looks.
