Property code: OC-SANDC

Take your four-legged friends and human family members on an adventure in an idyllic part of North Devon, with some of the best surf spots and sandy beaches around while being amongst the vibrant atmosphere of Croyde. After a busy day by the coast, head back to your cosy and homely cottage with elegant furnishings and a small garden. The open-plan layout creates a sociable and bright space to unwind in.

Step inside the property to find an open-plan living area which is light and neutral-toned. To one side of the room is the kitchen with pretty surface tops and a chic dining table in the centre of the space. Next to this is the lounge, with two comfortable sofas and a TV. There is also a family bathroom and two bedrooms – a twin and a double. Outside is a small lawn and a patio surrounded by mature hedges with garden furniture for dining alfresco.

During your getaway, stroll to the seafront and discover the expansive beaches on your doorstep in the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – like Croyde Beach (0.5 miles), Saunton Sands (1.5 miles) and Putsborough Beach (1.5 miles). Wander into the centre of the village (0.5 miles) to find a lovely selection of eateries, surf shops and a cinema for a rainy day. If you’ve brought your hiking boots, take your canine companions on an adventure along the coastal path to National Trust Baggy Point (3 miles), where you can soak up panoramic views of the sea and coastline.

We had a problem with the shower unit which wasn't ideal after the beach etc. It was repaired on the Monday but the problem reappeared by Wednesday and the unit was removed on Wednesday but NOT replaced until Friday afternoon!

A lovely, clean and cosy cottage. The furnishings were very comfortable and the cottage had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Its proximity to the village and the beach was perfect, with great access to good walking footpaths to either. Great walks all across the area and whilst the dog was not allowed on Croyde beach (Summer months), SaRead moreunton, Puttsborough, Woolacombe and Instow beaches were well within very easy reach and gave us and the dog hours of enjoyment. Favourite places to eat were the various pop up food vans in the area - the Beach Cafe does an amazing breakfast and Sri Lankan curry and is just a 5-10 min walk (turn right out of the property) also Cluck and Biffens kitchen over near Oceans Pitch campsite. The garden is pretty non existent (a mound of grass ) and not dog friendly i.e not enclosed. Hide

The property was very clean and tidy. The beach was a 5 minute walk without any road walking. Croyde beach is just one of 3 fantastic local beaches. Ideal for dogs. The look on our dog's face when putting her crate down when we were leaving was heart breaking.
