Private courtyard is ideal to sit back and relax after fab coastal walks.Great for evening sun with a bottle of prosecco! The property is well design and fully equipped. Close to the beach and easy walking distance of the village. A good range of maps, magazines and books are available to ensure you make the most of your stay. We've been coming to Croyde for a number of years and this is one of the best properties we've stayed in. We'll be back.

Lovely clean apartment with everything that you could possibly need provided .Great coastpath walks from the door which we certainly made the most of in both directions and visiting all the lovely little villages around Putsborough. Would recomend
