Cottage is in a great location. Our family of 5 enjoyed a great week here. Plenty of space for us all. Beds very comfy. Everything is looking very tired and is ready for an overhaul.

Comfortable house with a quality feel to it. Good central location for Croyde village with parking for 4 cars at a squeeze. We liked the balcony and outside shower. Good size family living. Furnishings not as high quality as photos but still good.
