Had a wonderful one week holiday at Croyde bay in the Barn which was outstanding. There was plenty of parking space and with the cottage being situated down a little lane it was extremely quiet. The cottage itself was extremely well equipped and we had a surprise gift of tea, coffee, biscuits and a bottle of wine...very nice! All the rooms were spacious and clean and the garden was lovely, typical country cottage. You do get a bit of noise from the adjoining cottage as there is just an internal door between them but this was not really a problem. The location was perfect as we were very close to the Post Office, shops, restaurants and beach. The ice-cream shop was a favourite. The restaurants were ok, very busy and very casual, we took clothes to dress up a bit for dinner but really didn't need to. The kids went surfing and had lessons at the Croyde Surfe School, they had a great time, the staff were friendly. Body boarding is great fun and everyone seems to do it, we didn't plan to join in but it was easy to hire boards and wet suits for the day. We would definitely go back to Croyde and stay in the Barn again.
