“Just perfect and sooo romantic”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in August 2018

We were soo excited to leave the motorwary, loved the drive in the picturesque countryside. We were greated by Paula's friendly neighbours first, before we took the right turn to the cottage. Paula is lovely, easy to talk to and always accompanied by friendly Breeze, one of these hypoallergenic dogs :) Although our stay was super short, we enjoyed the views, the walks around the estate. The coast is only a short drive away. Bude, one of the mall towns we visited has loads of hidden gems to try out. Paula has a dotty box for you in the cottage, full of recomendations and places to see. The attention to detail is visible not only within the cottage, but all over the garden too.
We loved it so much that we are alrady planing our next visit and hoping to sqeeze in some fishing too.

Monika and Matty,

I am so delighted that you both loved Church Cottage Studio so much that you have already booked your return visit towards the end of the year. The pretty coastal town of Bude is quite unique with its canal, beaches, individual boutique shops and array of places to drink and eat. You will see on your next visit...even in the winter this special part of Devon/Cornwall can make your heart sing!

See you soon....

“A perfect escape”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in July 2018

The fact it has taken us so long to write a review on this place is testament to how much we needed a break! We visited Church Cottage Studio back in July during the height of the heat wave following a trip we had made down to Cornwall. Being from Bristol it wasn't too far away from us and provided the perfect end to our summer escape.

We were slightly late arriving due to a change in our plans and Paula was incredibly understanding. We were delighted with our friendly, warm welcome and were made to feel immediately relaxed and comfortable. We were extremely appreciative of our chocolates and wine that had been provided on our arrival.

The cottage itself was wonderful. It was clean, spacious and provides the perfect atmosphere for relaxing and unwinding. Initially we had planned to eat out locally but with the facilities of the kitchenette at hand we actually self-catered every evening and enjoyed watching the sun go down whilst eating on the decking which has extremely comfortable furniture. There is a hob, microwave and fridge along with kettle and a toaster. There is a Waitrose around 5-10 minutes away in Holsworthy so it's really easy to stock up. Although the fridge space is quite small, Paula provides an additional mini-fridge in the cottage so there is plenty of space.

The bathroom facilities were second to none. The shower is easy to operate and walk in. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the chairs indoors are perfect for reading. A personal favourite addition was the record player with a selection of vinyls.

The surrounding grounds are an escape in themselves and make for perfect photographs. The sun gazebo is a spot you must visit to watch the sun-set and enjoy a glass or two.

We ordered breakfast for one of the mornings we stayed at the cottage and it was excellent. It started with croissants, jam, granola and fresh yoghurt. We then had a selection of cooked items (sausages, eggs, bacon). This came with fruit juice and a caffetiere of fresh coffee. Definitely worth booking.

Overall, we had an amazing experience at Church Cottage studio and can't wait to head back. Help was always on hand should we need it and we were made to feel so welcome. We are hoping to visit in the winter months and are looking forward to our next visit.

Reviewed 16 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

What a perfect weekend getaway. Paula made us welcome from the minute we pulled onto the drive of her beautiful place to the minute we left .
The studio is immaculate, both in terms of cleanliness and attention to detail. She is full of local knowledge and recommended some great places to see.
The apartment has amazing views of the meadow and gardens , the only noise you hear is the sweet birdsong in the trees.
It really is a slice of British paradise . Thankyou so much, we will return !

Thank you for your lovely review, a slice of British paradise is a wonderful way to describe Church Cottage Studio. I hear the birdsong everyday but it still stops me in my tracks and reminds me to look up and listen....it's free!. Hope to see you back again whenever you want to tune into their sweet music...

Kind regards

“Our second wonderful visit”
Reviewed 13 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Our second visit this year and just as wonderful as our first-such a lovely place to relax and unwind, as soon as pull up-you feel so at ease. Paula is such a wonderful host,who has such an extensive knowledge of the area and places to visit. The breakfasts are so delicious and if you are lucky with the weather, to eat outside on the terrace/decking is even better all you can hear are the birds singing and that’s it, quiet, peaceful and idyllic. We absolutely love church cottage studio, and have already booked our 3rd visit -to relax and to explore the area even more. Thank you Paula.

“Peaceful, luxurious and a great host”
Reviewed 23 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This studio is placed in an idyllic spot in the Devon countryside close to Bude and the moors. Well appointed with some great touches. The main room is a descent size with plenty of storage space, small wood burner, built in kitchen in a cupboard and large shower room. You can park outside but a few yards up the driveway is a large garage where you can park your car, great for classic owners (we are). Breakfast (optional) is freshly cooked and delicious – well worth it. Its not often you can stay somewhere where you can’t hear background traffic – this is one of those places. The property also has a small lake and some large meadows which you can explore. If you want to get away from it all it doesn’t get any better than here!

Thank you for your great review, it was so special to see your lovely classic enjoying the fabulous driving routes around North Devon. Church Cottage Studio is perfect for couples, like yourselves, who delight in the peace and quiet and watching the local wildlife in and around the meadows. Really looking forward to welcoming you back and perhaps a joint classic run out together.

“Paradise found in Devon”
Reviewed 2 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This was our second visit to the Studio and we cannot praise this beautiful retreat highly enough.

The studio is furnished exquisitely and the attention to detail five star. Looking out from the private decking surrounded by beautiful meadows and woodland the views, peace and tranquility is beyond words.

The hosts Kevin and Paula are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. from the delicious breakfasts to the excellent classic car driving routes and finally the stunning sunsets in Bude.

A truly amazing unforgettable four days.

Now when can we plan our third visit........?

Being located on the west coast means that we get to experience some of the most stunning sunsets within a short drive from here......so pleased that you enjoyed this extra special part of the day too.
Looking forward to your next visit.......
