“Absolute perfection”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A beautiful studio finished to the highest standard in immaculate gardens, overlooking fields and woodland and providing a peaceful retreat if you're lucky enough to stay here. Paula is a fantastic host (those breakfasts are to die for - thanks Paula), we missed meeting Kevin, next time though (along with Millie and Dirty Gertie).
The studio is located about halfway between Dartmoor and Bude so there is lots of scope for visiting the tourist spots or yomping across the moor if that's your thing.
There are lots of places to eat out or you could make use of Paula and Kevin's barbecue (walk through the grassed field, around the wetland field, past the the lake) and eat and drink 'til the sun goes down - a great evening spent there, thanks again Paula and 'Dad'.
We honestly can't recommend Church Cottage Studio highly enough, it's a fantastic place to stay and you are made to feel so welcome, we loved it!! Thanks again

“Peaceful bliss in country haven”
Reviewed 22 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Church Cottage Studio was everything we had hoped it would be - a peaceful sanctuary from the busyness of life. Paula is the perfect host and has thought of everything to make your stay extra special - the quality of all the fittings is to the highest standard, from the 'pull out' kitchenette (brilliantly designed) to the walk-in rainforest shower to the luxury bed. We had the best night's sleep imaginable in plush linen bedding, waking to no human sound - just birds and the gentle rustling of leaves. The breakfast was stunningly good, served al fresco on the deck overlooking fields and woods, just like the picture. If you're looking for a touch of peaceful luxury, this is the place for you ...

“Fabulous Cottage in a Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Church Cottage Studio was ideal for a couple's get-away. The studio was clean and immaculately presented. The whole finish was definitely high-spec and luxurious, and the location was perfect.

The facilities in the studio were ideal for our 4-night stay. The bed was large and comfortable, there was a very clever kitchenette with cooking and tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge and a selection of utensils - not that we wanted to do any cooking, but it was nice to be able to make a sandwich.

Paula was an outstanding host; friendly and accommodating - always making sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast she served us was amazing too; quality, well-cooked food and plenty of it!

We'll certainly be visiting again and would highly recommend the Studio. Our only regret was that, as we were visiting family, we didn't get to explore the local area more, or spend more time just chilling out on the terrace, looking over the beautiful and relaxing grounds. Maybe next time!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My partner and I arrived to a warm welcome from the lovely Paula, she welcomed us into church cottage studio with freshly made brownies and cream and showed us around and gave us lots of information on the local area. The cottage is amazing, had such a lovely time in front of the log burner with cheese and buicuits and a glass of red. The bed is so Comfy and we both slept so well. Double shower is also a luxury. Paula treated us to a amazing breakfast, we had honey fresh fruit etc then some yummy smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, set us up for the day. We cannot thank Paula enough for all the little extra special touches she puts in to making your holiday perfect, making our fire up for when we got home from a day out visiting family, also sending us on our journey home with some bite sized brownies :) we can't wait to come again in the new year and give breeze (the dog) another cuddle and stay at the wonderful cottage so many more places nearby to explore. Thankyou :)

“A little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Everything about Church Cottage Studio is simply superb. The setting is stunning with beautiful views across the wild flower meadow and the woodland beyond. At night time star gazing from the decking was simply amazing together with the beautifully flood lit 300 year old oak tree made for a perfect evening. The attention to detail is second to none with very many thoughtful touches that make The Studio very special. The hosts, Paula and Kevin are perfect in every way - nothing is too much trouble. If you are the slightest bit interested in classic cars or cars in general then this is the place for you with some fantastic driving roads and Kevin will point you in the right direction along with his own classic cars. It was an absolute pleasure to spend time enjoying the beautiful surroundings and everything this special place has to offer. We are already planing our next trip!

Julie and Rodger, thank you for your lovely review of Church Cottage Studio. We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your evenings stargazing on your private decking and the wonderful sight of the floodlit oak tree opposite. We are also pleased that, as fellow classic car enthusiasts, you discovered the joys of driving across the wonderful Dartmoor National Park and all that it has to offer in terms of breathing taking views and quaint Devon villages.
We are looking forward to your return trip in 2017, so have already started to plan some lovely driving routes for you along the amazing North Devon/Cornish coastline.
Kindest regards
Paula

“First class”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Which to praise first...? The perfect host? The glorious location? Or the stunning accommodation?
This was our second visit in a month and when you visit you'll understand why.
Paula and Kevin are impeccable hosts. The studio is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Having stayed in quality hotels such as The Savoy, I would rate this studio a higher class. Attention to detail is both impressive and overwhelming. Paula has taken great care in choosing furniture and finishing touches. Nothing beats sitting in the chaise longue, looking across the decking towards the meadow with a book in hand. The grounds ofChurch Cottage Studio holds a wonderful history and hearing how it has been restored makes it all the more special.

Location wise, it is a 15-20 minute drive to Widemouth Bay and its wonderful sandy beach. A short distance further and you can enjoy a traditional Cornish pasty in Boscastle. An hour and 20 minutes away is the Eden Project. So, it's a fantastic location to explore both Devon and Cornwall.

Breakfast is plentiful and is prepared to perfection. Nothing is too much trouble.

I simply cannot recommend Church Cottage Studio enough and I look forward to returning soon.

Wow, what can I say! Thank you so much for such a wonderful review X it was lovely to host you both again and to hear about your daily adventures as you explored this amazing region. I try to ensure that guests experience the very best hospitality, the kind that I expect to receive myself.

I look forward to seeing you both again soon as you continue your journey of discovery around Devon and Cornwall.
Kindest regards,
