Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for the holiday we have just had at The Swallow and for the excellent condition and cleanliness of the property. We have been staying at Leadengate Fields at various properties for approximately seven years, and this is the only property we have not had to clean and wash all the crockery etc on arrival. This certainly made all the difference to us and particularly as we do not usually arrive until 9/10pm.

I enclose our booking form for next year.

Many thanks and we look forward to another pleasant time in Croyde.

Brilliant holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
The Swallow is lovely bungalow which is a perfect base for a beach holiday. We had a great time using the body boards and nets for rock pooling kept in the shed. Would thoroughly recommend!

Hidden gem!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We've just got back from an amazing week staying at the swallow. As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed already. The chalet has a special, relaxed feeling that we felt on holiday straight away. It's beautifully decorated and has all the amenities we needed. The owners Andrew and Kerry have thought of everything and it's really well equipped. The chalet is in a lovely location, very peaceful and a short stroll to the beach and village. We eat at the thatch and billy buds, both are lovely and serve amazing food. The village is quaint and unspoilt, with everything that you require. It's an absolute hidden gem and we're so pleased we found it. We will defiantly be coming back and would recommend it too anyone. We miss it already!!

Back again

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Swallow in June and had a great time and loved the chalet.
The opportunity to return was too much to resist and so we were lucky to be able to immediately relax for a few days in our favourite Croyde home from home.
We have stayed in Croyde many times but never in September and was surprised how lively things are.
Looking forward to getting back as soon as possible

Fantastic Beach Holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
What a perfect way to spend a week at the beach. Croyde Bay Beach is literally a stones throw away. The kids could chuck on their wetsuits, walk through the dunes, and there you were at the beach. The surf was great, and the beach well patrolled.

The house was nicely decorated, and finished a to a modern style. Very well stocked, with everything (and more) you could ever need.

Plus, a short 10 minute stroll and you are in the heart of the village, with 3 pubs/restaurants within walking distance. This meant we could have an evening meal out, whilst the kids were happy to play on the wooden climbing areas.

One negative - an outdoor tap/hose would have been ideal to wash down after surfing.

We would highly recommend, and definately return again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback, we are really pleased that you loved Croyde as much as we do!

We are always looking for ways to make the 'Swallow' more comfortable for our guests & agree that an outside water supply would make life a lot easier, we are in the process of looking in to the possibility of installing an outside shower for next year.

Thank you for choosing the 'Swallow' for your holiday and I hope you will stay with us again soon !
