Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Widemouth Bay - Croft House

4 bedroom house sleeping up to ten people overlooking the Atlantic

Situated within tripping distance of the Cornish coast and Atlantic waves, Croft House is the perfect base for those looking for a stunning house with all modern amenities and yet so close to the breathtaking Widemouth Bay, one of North Cornwall's premier bathing and surfing beaches. A fantastic holiday home that sleeps ten. There are four en-suite bedrooms and an outdoor hot shower to wash away the sand and salty sea after a day riding the Cornish surf; or perhaps you have spent the day lounging on the sand reading that book you have promised yourself you will read when you have time. This self catering holiday home also has a small garden and patio area for BBQs, a lovely first floor kitchen and sitting room with balcony, which means you can enjoy the wonderful sea views and spectacular Cornish sunsets from the comfort of your own home. There is a small local shop, with a fantastic fresh fish counter, Inn with good quality ales and excellent food (fish and chip takeaway) all nearby.

Late summer holiday

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a family party of eight adults plus dogs. The location was superb for the one experienced and three would be surfers. A short walk over the dunes to the dog friendly part of the beach was ideal. The house itself was spotless, well equipped and the balcony is great for sitting and watching the sea. Although the weather wasn't great the garden enabled us to catch what sun there was towards the end of the week. We couldn't have wanted a better house to spend the one week of the summer when we are all together.

Exceeded all expectations has a wow factor.

  • 5 of 5

What a great holiday we had , not sure where to start. Thanks so much for the prosecco and the very good welcome pack including some milk was brilliant .

We just loved the house the first floor balcony with views of the ocean and the sunset was amazing. The location could not have been better it really was just minutes to the beach. The house was beautiful and the attention to detail was fantastic not sure what we liked best ,clothes lines in the garden and garage for hanging up the wetsuits ,the children were in love with the ice dispenser ,comfortable beds and blackout blinds but the most luxurious touch was the outdoor shower. The house was well maintained and spotlessly clean. We would recommend it and do hope to stay there again .

Luxury villa, great views, dog friendly, quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This villa has been furnished very nicely. From the memory foam beds, goose down duvets and power showers to the comfortable sofas and american fridge freezer, you couldn't fault it. The sitting room is upstairs to take advantage of the sea views and sunsets. The courtyard garden is tiny but large enough for a BBQ and a bit of sunbathing. The location is really quiet and we loved the fact that we could be on the beach with our dog in about one minute. We would definitely come here again.

Owner's Response: This is a fabulous review and very pleasing to receive. I am delighted that the house was really enjoyed and very much look forward to welcoming you again. I would comment that the courtyard/patio area has 14 dining chairs, a very large dining table, whicker lounge set with sofa and two chairs with a coffee table so plenty of seating area along with a large charcoal BBQ. It is a sun trap and very secluded so ideal for enjoying al fresco wining and dining!

Croft House

  • 4 of 5

Hi Nick, thank you very much for aranging our short stay at Croft house. What an amazing place this is, as soon as we walked in it had the wow !!! factor and everyone was delighted.We were lucky with the weather but it would not have mattered if it had rained, we were all quite happy to sit and look through the window at the wonderful sea views. This is a house for friends and family alike, the kitchen is fantastic and we were all happy to share the cooking! The house was very clean and I loved the white bed linnen. We took our dog Sebastian a very friendly dog... in a very dog friendly house. Again.. we would like to say a very big thank you, to you and the owners. Adrianna and Daria are already packing for the next break... so you haven't heard the last of us! Jane

Family of 4 plus dog from Cheshire

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic accommodation in a stunning location. Stayed for a week with 2 16yr old boys who surfed everyday despite the weather.

Fully equipped house which due to its open plan design never felt too big for us despite there being only 4 of us in it.

The complimentary basket was a lovely treat which we thoroughly enjoyed and also the little extras i.e toiletries in the bathrooms.

Nick was a great guy who sorted out the accommodation and was there is we needed him.

Would recommend this beautiful house along with the surf hire at the tea rooms (brilliant rate per week) and the lovely fish and chips at the Beech Diner (up the road).

Would I return - absolutely no question about it.
