It is possible to park in the street within a few meters of the cottage although there is not a designated parking spot and there is a maximum stay of one hour during the day. There is a paying car park (free overnight) opposite. There are also residents permits you can purchase from me at £2 per day. There is a supplement for pets of £15 per stay. The outside space is not gated so pets cannot be let out unattended.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Best of Topsham!
A lovely cottage in the heart of town. Walking distance of all amenities. A very relaxing stay. Very quiet despite being in centre of town.

Lovely cottage close to the centre of beautiful Topsham
We stayed at Courtyard Cottage for 5 beautiful sunny days and enjoyed every minute. The owner has thought of everything, and provided lots of little treats and extras which show she wants you to enjoy your stay. The cottage is clean, comfortable and very well equipped. We ate out at some of the excellent pubs and restaurants, but the kitchen is lovely, so anyone wanting to cook for themselves would find it a pleasure. Nearby Darts Farm would be the ideal place to stock up the fridge! Friendly neighbours in the courtyard who always stopped for a chat made us feel very welcome too.

Great cottage
Easy booking great communication. Spotlessly clean with everything you would need for a break away, we could not fault this cottage at all. Look forward to returning sometime soon.

Lovely holiday cottage
Beautiful little cottage right in the heart of Topsham, with some very thoughtful touches from the host. Hazel was very easy to communicate with, especially as we initially had to change the dates of our stay due to COVID.

Outstanding support and communication
We booked and paid for Courtyard Cottage over Xmas 2020 but following the announcement of Tier 4 restrictions across the south east UK were ultimately unable to visit. Hazel was most responsive and supportive and facilitated a full refund back to us within a few days, thank you! We still hope to visit in the future...

Top spot in Topsham
A fabulous little haven in a fabulous spot. Everything you can imagine is catered for and all the little touches really make it a special stay. Hazel really has excelled herself as a host. Loved the breakfast left for us.
