Beautiful vacation spot

5 of 5
Lovely chalet, beautiful views and the proximity to the beach is perfect for a family vacation. The chalet has everything you could possibly need, including a brand new Weber grill. There is a Nespresso coffee maker (take pods!) and a coffee press. Croyde is a lovely village for breakfast or afternoon tea and there is a lovely ice cream shop. We can’t wait to go back...
