The West Country region
The westcounrty offers something for everyone: Dramatic coastal paths, secluded bays, rugged moorlands, stately homes, gardens, and many other places of interest. It also offers you some of the best surfing beaches in the Uk and a number of good golf courses
For those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life, you will find the Hartland Peninsula hidden away in the north west corner of Devon, offering remoteness, wildness and natural beauty unlike any other area. Here you can explore the twelve miles of fantastic rugged coastline.
Hartland is a popular village with a small selection of shops and pubs about 2.5 miles off the A39. Charter house is in the very heart of Hartland. For those looking to come in the August summer Holidays, Hartland carnival is a must. This annual event is usually held during the first full week of August and includes a quiz night, bingo, a family fun night, ending with the grand display of colourful, artistic and amusing floats lead through the village by the Hartland town band.
Some of North Devon's most breath taking coastline is nearby with many picturesque bays where you can spend hours fishing or exploring the rock pools. Hartland Quay with its hotel, pub and small museum is a great place to visit then spend the day on the beach with the family, and is the perfect location to watch some spectacular sunsets. There are many places of interest nearby which include Hartland Abbey, founded in 1157 by Augustinian monks.
Keen golfers and surfer can enjoy the golf courses or beaches at Westward Ho! and Bude, whilst other family attractions include: The Milky Way, The Big Sheep, Tapeley Park, and Dartington Crystal. Why not take a day boat trip from Bideford to Lundy Island, famous for its seabirds, including a few breeding pairs of the puffins which gave the island its name .Lundy Island and the waters around it are also the home to a wealth of other animals and plants. Alternatively you could explore the pretty harbour at Clovelly, where you may be able to hire a fishing boat to take out .

"A family holiday for 10"
A large 18th / 19th century house which provided plenty of accommodation for seven adults and three children. The rambling rustic house provided plenty of opportunities for hide and seek as well as rooms for quiet times.
Hartland is ideal for access to beaches, the coastal path, quiet cycle rides and theme parks for the kids.
We are glad you found the house large enough for you and your family and that you were able to enjoy the surrounding area. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

"Great big family house in the middle of the village"
It's a great big house for a family holiday. 6 bedrooms, a massive kitchen/diner, two sitting rooms and a dining room and it has a large secure garden for kids and dogs to run around in.
It's perfectly positioned in the village, with pub's next door and opposite the square.
The house has plenty of space and all the amenities you could need, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, Wifi.
and Charlotte was close by to answer any questions we had about the house and popped in to show us how everything worked.
It suited us perfectly and we'll definitely be back.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Charter House and look forward to welcoming you back.

"Wonderful house for a large group"
We visited over the Easter holidays and had a fantastic time. The house was large enough for five children to happily occupy themselves for hours with games of hide and seek. There was a very nice welcome tray for us when we arrived withall the essentials for an initial cup of tea and coffee and a slice of cake. On Good Friday we went to one of the beaches in Bude and it was well worth the journey for a sunny day. Although the weather did not stay in our favour we enjoyed walking around the area and the children enjoyed riding their bikes. The little park in the village was very much enjoyed by the children as well. We have to recommend the Fish and Chip shop which was right on the doorstep. All cooked fresh to order and made a great Good Friday Supper. All the equipment and gadgets you would need and more, as seasoned cottage and house stayers very often essentail basics such as oven trays and peelers are missing but not at Charter House! The use of the big fridge and freezer were very much appreciated. We would definately consider Charter House for a revisit. Very good value and lots of space.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you found the house had every thing you needed and would be happy to welcome you back in the future.

Beautiful old house full of charm with plenty of space for a large group to spread out and the king size bedrooms are really big. Ideally situated on the village square with a pub/restaurant next door (very quiet even on New Years eve) and a fish and chip shop literally a few steps away from the front door, village shop and post office very friendly and well stocked. Good walks for dogs nearby.
Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you were able to get out and about walking with the dogs (even with those storms around) and would happily welcome you back in the future.
