Croyde Bay Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Property was as described:

- very close to beach at Croyde (2 minutes), but we tended to go to Puttsborough Sands which was less busy and great loos ! (although the roads are very narrow)

- 5 minute walk into town for eating etc.

- good accommodation, large living room (Netflix on TV for drizzly days) with loads of seating, good kitchen with all appliances, dining table seated us all easily (4 adults, 2 children) , (mind the step down though from the kitchen though), both the bathroom and shower room have been modernised and are very good, bedrooms ok, if a bit dated. Lots of books and interesting object throughout the property.

- gardens front and rear

- adequate parking for 2-3 cars but entrance can be "tight"

- overall, very good and I can recommend the place for a great stay (subject to weather)

Didn't want to come home!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! We couldn't of found a better place to stay, honestly, this bungalow is stunning. Beautifully furnished throughout, lovely and clean and perfect location. With a mixed age of family members ranging from 12 to 74, everyone of us were more than comfortable including my disabled father!😊. We spent every day enjoying the sunshine in the gorgeous garden and not forgetting the hot tub (which my teenagers loved). The nearby beach is beautiful and literally just a 5 min walk around the corner. The only bad part of our holiday was having to leave😢. Thank you Michael for letting us have the pleasure of holidaying in your lovely property.

Lovely property and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Croyde, this property has everything you could need, the lay out was perfect for us as two families with young children. Local beaches are great, the older kids loved the surf school. I would highly recommend!

Fabulous accommodation with every possible comfort

  • 5 of 5

Can not fault anything about the location or the accommodation. Came away with home envy thinking about how we can change our own house! Michael (the owner) and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Have booked again this year and would actually like to move in full time!

Perfect holiday home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely fantastic holiday was had at Swaylands. It's a beautiful bungalow in a perfect location for the beach and the village. For a family of mixed ages from 10yrs to 90yrs there was something for everyone. The older kids loved the hot tub and fire pit and the younger one the trampoline and large garden. Wifi is available and a booster has now been added so you can get it in the back bedrooms, great for the kids. Unlike in many holiday homes there were plenty of pots and pans for a family who like to eat in and the grill pan for the oven was just unbelievable (how sad!) that I actually screamed with delight when I saw it!! My husband advises caution when building a fire as he bumped his head frequently on the ornamental antlers in the front room but other than that I highly recommend this property for a great family holiday. My communications with the owners before, during and after booking were spot on, nothing was too much trouble and no query overlooked. Very impressed all round.
