We booked this as it stated an enclosed garden, its Not, details on the web site have now been changed, photos on the web site of the garden are so out of date, all the trees are so over grown it blocks all the sun out of the garden, BBQ is us rusty it cant be used, its more like a fire pit. TV not working correctly, you have to have your own accouRead morent for BBC iplayer, ITVx, Netflix etc, mould in the shower room should be cleaned, we had to clean the patio as lots of leaves and cobwebs all over Hide

Lovely property, well presented and equipped, very clean, with a really comfortable bed. Hot tub is a great extra. Good location with easy access to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. We definitely recommend "The Thatch" at Croyde for food and it would be nice if it were included on the welcome letter.

Great relaxing break location, with wonderful costal walks over the hills behind the cottage. Sunsets in the hot tub with a glass of wine if you time it right.

A lovely holiday home in a beautiful, scenic area. Set not too far away to allow travel and adventures to secret beaches and coves, walks and days out aplenty. The amenities included in the holiday home welcome you back after your adventures, especially the hot tub with views out to sea. A super king sized bed, under floor heating & a fabulous walkRead more-in shower all add to the snuggling comforts you feel when you stay here. Definitely worth a visit, but keep it quiet, I want to book again !! Hide

Fabulous holiday home with an amazing bed - a perfect night's sleep. Both the owner and housekeeper were very attentive. Won't recommend for fear of it being fully booked!!!! Simply can't wait to return.

The Retreat was a very well equipped and comfortable home from home, and we had a lovely weeks stay with our Mollie-dog. It is well positioned to explore the north Devon coast and countryside.
