We really enjoyed our stay and found the cottage spotless with everything we needed. Beds and pillows lovely and comfortable. Good walks nearby. The only improvement I could ask for would be a gate on the garden as we had a young puppy and we couldnt let her out in the garden without being on the lead but a minor detail really.

Croyde is a perfect location for swimming and water sports, and has wonderful walking with the south west coastal path. We really enjoyed staying at Priory Stables which was comfortable and clean and close to both village amenities and the beach, with lovely footpaths in easy reach.

The living space in this house is beautiful and really comfortable for a large family group. It is right in the centre of Croyde, which was great for going to the village and only a short drive to 3 lovely beaches. We went to Putsborough mostly as dogs aren't allowed on Croyde beach and it's much less busy in August than Croyde! Lots of lovely walkRead mores from the house. The outside space is lovely but does need a side gate to make it secure. The housekeeper was really helpful and friendly. Hide

Lovely house and location, but back garden was not totally secure for our dog which didnt make it as relaxing as it could have been. This was a great house to stay for a larger family with lots of walks and long stretches of beaches to go to.
