About the property

2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 (maximum of 4 adults)

Adjoined to family home (owners 17thc. Thatched Cottage), with its own private access, this spacious 'cottage-style' property is perfectly placed in the heart of the village, yet tucked away at the end of a private lane.

A stone’s throw from village shops selling tasty pasties and Devon ice creams, as well your everyday basics, post office, surf shops and hire, and just around the corner the famous Thatched Barn Inn and Billy Budd’s. Manor Cottage is minutes from the footpath to Croyde beach (easy level walk about 10 minutes), so it is ideally placed for those warm beach days, a short stroll or surfing some legendary waves. We have three great beaches on our doorstep – Croyde renowned for its surf, Putsborough more sheltered and Saunton. Manor Cottage provides the ideal base from which to explore this fabulous coastline on foot, bike, bus or even horse. It is a great spot for a long break or a quick getaway; all making it extremely good value.

Manor Cottage annexe has a family-friendly layout, arranged over two floors: Accommodation is flexible and ideal for families, couples, and small groups of friends.

Upstairs - Bedroom One has a comfortable double bed, Bedroom Two is a family room overlooking the mature chestnut trees and garden, and has a double bed and bunk beds. Both rooms have their own wash basin and plenty of storage for clothes.

There are two bathrooms; upstairs the bathroom has a bath and toilet. The ground floor bathroom has a shower and toilet.

Downstairs: Well-equipped kitchen/dining area with cooker/oven/grill, microwave, dishwasher, good- sized fridge freezer, washing machine and dryer, extendable dining table for 6, as well as basic pantry items.

With its glorious view of the garden, the beamed lounge comfortably seats 6 and has a TV with Freeview/DVD player and a selection of local book club books to flick through at your leisure. Wi-Fi is available at no extra charge.

Lounge patio door leads onto a secluded and sun-filled patio, surrounded by sweet chestnut trees and summer blooms, perfect for a late breakfast or evening bbq. Patio has table and chairs and bbq (charcoal not included) just right for al fresco dining.

Beyond, is a lovely enclosed lawned garden, ideal for children to play or just to peacefully relax listening to the birds and the sea. This is a shared garden, but, large enough for guests to enjoy their own space.


Parking for two cars – shared private car port.

Area to rinse and hang wetsuits.

Out and about:

Whatever the time of year, there is always something to do!

Ideas locally:

Short journey by car to Georgeham where there are two award-winning pubs, family friendly with great food and live music.

Just minutes by car:

Putsborough beach – sheltered and ideal for swimming or messing about in rock pools. It has a great café’ for a hearty breakfast or a sneaky hot chocolate!

Closest village/town:

5 miles by car is Braunton – independent shops for gifts, supermarket for supplies, bank and a selection of local eateries and takeaway – French, Thai, award-winning fish and chips (Squires), or lunch at The Riverside, watching the world go by.

Plenty of walking - coastal footpath and spectacular cliff walks - Baggy Point is practically on your doorstep - why not finish your walk with a delicious cream tea at the Sandleigh Tearooms. If you are looking for a little more adventure why not try rock climbing or even coasteering.

Further afield:

Trips to Lundy Island, exploring the old fishing villages of Appledore and Clovelly, theme parks – Big Sheep and Milky Way, Ilfracombe Harbour (fishing and day trips) and Verity (Damian Hurst's statue), Exmoor, RHS Rosemoor and Broomhill Sculpture Gardens. For National Trust members we have Baggy Point/beach car park and Arlington Court (about 40 minutes drive).

This is a great base from which to explore the glorious North Devon coast and countryside. Please contact us for last minute deals.

An ideal holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed before but was happy to find the apartment has been re-decorated, and the facilities have yet again (judging by a previous reviewer) been improved. We were especially happy that free, but secure, wi-fi is now available.

Better than ever

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and was always very nice, but was pleased to see that the property had undergone recent re-decoration and improvement. We do prefer to self-cater and the kitchen improvements have made it much better for us, with new and larger fridge/freezer particulary. Also having a tumble drier will be good for drying if the weather is not so good out of season.

Thanks to Gordon for yet another great holiday.

Fantastic cottage in the centre if Croyde

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from staying at the Manor Cottage in the centre of Croyde. We all had the most amazing time and have booked two further week breaks for this year at the cottage. The cottage is located in the centre of Croyde and walking distance to the three local pubs and the local surf shops and not forgetting the beach which only takes 10 minutes to walk to from the cottage. My two girls age 15 and 13 and I have spent the week surfing and the beaches are breathtakingly beautiful and it was lovely to come back and relax in the cottage which has more than enough room to sleep 6 comfortably. The garden is beautiful and with a BBQ meant we spent a couple of nights outside enjoying the views overlooking the hills.

I would give the location and accommodation 10 out of 10 and would highly recommend this holiday cottage to any of my friends and family and cannot wait until my next visit. Nicola, Amy and Melissa.

Creature comforts

  • 5 of 5

My famly and I have been coming to Croyde for many years and find everything we need and want in Manor Cottage. Wonderfully spacious and clean inside with a lovely quiet garden with seating to the rear. Easy parking at the front, well lit for those late nights! In a location that is only a minutes walk from the village and just a short distance from the beach. Travelling about is easy too, close to towns, villages and resorts, using car or public transport. Plenty of places to eat locally or further afield. Excellant customer service, with owner living next door, always willing to lend a hand if needed. Croyde is an excellant holiday destination for any aged person and Manor Cottage has all the creature comforts in making your stay enjoyable. That's why we go back year after year!!

Ideal family holiday property

  • 5 of 5

We first came to this property 16 years ago and have returned every year since. The property is an ideal home from home with a large enclosed garden, large airy bedrooms, upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, kitchen-diner, large lounge. Perfect for our family of five. Private under-cover parking. Friendly, helpful owners who live on site. Lovely sandy beach which is only a short walk away. Pretty village with pubs to suit all ages (play areas) for younger children. Well stocked local shops. Surfing is fantastic! lessons available from several surf schools/shops in the village and on the beach. Overall, I would recommend this property to anyone, any age as it is clean, well maintained, good size rooms and quiet village location. Excellent base for visiting well advertised tourist attractions.

My Holiday Review on a Good Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a Weeks holiday in Croyde Bay where I use to go as a Child and was not disappointed!. This property is in a very good location which is a short walk to the beach and although in the Village its located on a quiet lane with private parking. The owner lives in the property next door who was very friendly and helpful. The Surf is really good so good for the adventure seekers and teenagers. The families with small children have the beach close by but also lots of things to do if the weather is not so good, there are lots of farms and children's adverture places to visit. The property was clean, well-maintained and ideal, we will definitely come back.
