Really lovely and comfortable cottage,in a beautiful and quite village.

5 of 5
Had a lovely stay and weather was good to us. This is a really lovely cottage in a fantastic location, but close enough to all beaches in Saunton sands and Woolacombe and other north Devon places worth a visit.

Lovely cottage, great location

5 of 5
A perfect cottage in the centre of Croyde, really well kept, beautiful views, loads of space, really comfy beds! Gordon the owner welcomed us and showed us around and even provided a lovely cream tea on arrival, really nice touch. You really couldn't ask for a better location, it's a 10 minute walk Croyde beach or a 15 minute drive to Woolacombe beach. Would definitely visit again and will be recommending it to everyone!
