Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fabulous farmhouse kitchen and a lovely spacious garden

The Farmhouse is a lovingly restored 17th Century Grade II listed building, situated in a quiet secluded spot right in the centre of Croyde. It is just a 2-minute walk from the centre of Croyde and a 10-minute walk to the beach.

The Farmhouse has 3 bedrooms & can sleep up to 6 people (1 double & 2 twins). The master bedroom with en-suite shower room has lovely views over the beautiful garden. The other 2 bedrooms are twin bedrooms & share the family bathroom.

The second bedroom has twin beds and again with a delightful view over the garden.

The third bedroom also has twin beds, with views is to the lane and beyond.

The modern family bathroom has both bath and shower facilities (all showers in this cottage are power showers).

The kitchen is a great place to socialise, there is a huge dining table that seats 10 people so that all the family can sit round in comfort. There is a range cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, 2 refrigerators, a microwave and a flat screen TV to make it seem like home from home. We didn’t forget about the tumble dryer, that is in the utility room.

The comfortable beamed living room includes, 3 leather sofas, solid oak flooring, and open log fire for when the weather is less than perfect. There is a good sized flat screen TV with SKY (including movies and sports) and a bookcase full of books.

We have a beautiful, large, sheltered garden with BBQ and garden furniture for 6 people. As can be seen from the photos there is a nice patio area for chilling out and plenty of lawn for those who are less inclined!

There is also an elegant conservatory overlooking the garden perfect for the cooler (or indeed damper) days when you can’t sit outside to enjoy the garden.

Downstairs cloakroom

All bed linen, bath and hand towels supplied.

We have private, secluded courtyard parking for 2 cars. With delivery services, local shops and bars there is no need to use the car while you are here yet still experience a huge amount.

Our local housekeeper provides 24-hour emergency cover.

The Farmhouse is part of a collection of 3 properties that we have together, it is possible to book all together for larger groups. The other 2 properties are:

The Barn, also 17th century listed which again sleeps up to 6.

The Granary, a curtilage listed apartment that sleeps up to 2.

There is an interconnecting facility between The Barn & the farmhouse that can be enabled if required, further enhancing a large group experience.

FRIDAY CHANGEOVER DAY FOR WEEKLY BOOKINGS.

Weekend in Croyde

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Croyde Cottage for a long weekend in March, 2 adults and 4 children. The cottage was beautiful, very homely but spacious. Fantastic location, right in the heart of the village. We found the kitchen to be very well equipped, easy to cook a large family meal. The property was very clean and well maintained. We particularly enjoyed having a log fire! We have visited Croyde many, many times, and go there for relaxing weekends and proper "family" time which always includes walks on the beach, ice-creams and Sunday lunch at the pub! This is probably the best property we have stayed in, in Croyde, and we will definately be back!

Owner's Response: Croyde is a great place for a family holiday or weekend away. It has lovely beaches and country walks through beautiful National Trust countryside. All we have to do is provide comfortable and, we hope, stylish accommodation to give our guests a great getaway at any time of year!

Lovely cottage in a good location

  • 5 of 5

A nicely decorated and converted cottage with a pleasant outside space. Tucked away near the centre of the village, really handy for shops + pubs. Parking is a bit tricky in a larger car.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Croyde Cottage, we booked for 6 people but ended up just 2 as our sons/partners could not get off work, the cottage is perfect, 3 large bedrooms and the showers are all powerful and the large kitchen is a dream. Lovely garden and the lounge is quaint and comfortable just perfect. Dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Everything like home from home. What made this cottage even more perfect was additional touches, not only towels and tea towels provided but extras, such as toilet rolls, kitchen rolls, dishwasher and washing powder tablets. they really have given attention to detail. The location was also perfect, right in Croyde Village, a few steps away from restaurants, and pubs. We had a slight problem with a few bulbs blown but when we advised them, we had an electrician sent round the following morning. If we could offer any advise to someone staying here, we would say take a torch as it is down a very narrow little road with no street lights, there was outside lights on the cottages but unfortunately they were not working whilst we were there?

Thank you for a fab week, we will be back

Amazing farmhouse, fab location, see you next year

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we opened the doors to the farmhouse, we felt at home. The property had everything we needed and more. Upon arrival, there was even a bottle of wine and packet of biscuits waiting for us, which was a great touch.

The farmhouse kitchen and garden were our favourite places to spend time together as a family. Every morning we would share breakfast together over the huge dining table, whilst making use of the range to cook our breakfast. The weather was amazing, which allowed us to have the doors open in the kitchen which led out on the courtyard and then the garden. My son adored exploring the space outside whilst we looked on from the gorgeous conservatory on the property. As previously mentioned, the weather was very kind to us, so we spent a lot of time at the local beach in Croyde and we also drove a little further to Saunton Sands. The days at the beach were glorious, my toddler loved playing in the sand and exploring the rock pools. Once we returned to the cottage, we would cosy up in the lounge and watch some TV, with the option to use the fireplace but the weather was very warm so we didn't get to experience it.

Once we retired to bed, we assumed my son would feel a little out of sorts on the first night, as he was away from home but after a long soak in the tub, in the family bathroom, my son went down to sleep in the twin room and didn't wake until the next morning at 8am (a lie-in for us). We also slept great in the master bedroom, the bed was very comfortable and the linen was fab too.

Each room had its own quaint view from the window. We also benefited greatly from the facilities at the cottage, such as the washer, tumble dryer and dishwasher, these are a necessity when you have a toddler.

The farmhouse was an absolute delight to stay in, my son adored exploring it, the area of Croyde is idyllic with chocolate box cottages, a lovely ice-cream parlour and great pub and restaurant and the beach is wonderful.

We have created some great memories and it was with a heavy heart that we had to leave the cottage but we will most definitely be back next year.

The properties are idyllically situated right in the heart of the picturesque Devon coastal village of Croyde, which has history that stretches over a thousand years to pre-saxon times. It is set in a small turning off St Mary's Road. Only 5 minutes walk to local amenities such as the shops, pubs, restaurants, surf shops, etc. Approx 10 minutes level walk to the beach.

Croyde in North Devon provides a wonderful holiday location in a beautiful setting bordered by National Trust land on one side and the UNESCO Braunton Burrows biosphere on the other.

Apart from Croyde beach there are three other fantastic sandy beaches to choose from ideally suited for surfing, sunbathing, kite flying and beachcombing etc, they are Saunton Sands, Putsborough and Woolacombe Bay.

The National Trust coastline and the Tarka Trail are perfect for walkers and places to visit from there include Lee Bay, which is ideal for sunbathing, rock climbing and shrimping and a pint in The Grampas, and Ilfracombe, which has a very nice working harbour and good restaurants and eateries.

Further afield are Barnstaple, 12 miles away, which is good for shopping and eating and Clovelly, which is a very old seaport, very quaint with donkeys being the only transport allowed through the village to the harbour - well worth a visit.

For falconry displays and sheepdog displays check local events.

Cycling is very popular in this area with lots of areas of interest to go to and the Tarka Trail is ideal for both walking and cycling.
