Devon Longstraw nestles in the middle of a row of three character cottages in the popular coastal village of Croyde.  What better way to unwind after a hard days beach combing, walking or family activities than to sit and relax in this comfortable property. Devon Longstraw's location has the bonus of its close proximity to the centre of the village, where the beach path winds its way down through the dunes to the golden sands and ocean surf of Croyde Bay. Alternatively, a 20 minute stroll along the nearby bridleway leads to Putsborough Beach, which has the benefit of far reaching cliff views and year round dog friendly access.
The heart of this property is the open plan living area with slate flooring throughout which is complemented one end with 2 comfy sofas and TV and the kitchen/dining area situated at the other end.  An attractive twin bedroom (the beds can be converted to a King on request) is also situated on the ground floor together with a spacious shower room. A staircase leads to a very spacious bedroom with sloping ceilings and views over the surrounding countryside from the velux style windows. The bedroom has plenty of space for a sofa and TV, complete with a PlayStation II games console and games, ideal for the kids after a busy day's activities out in the fresh air. There is also a good size ensuite bathroom. The cottage has an attractive gravelled and flagstone courtyard seating area at the front, which makes an ideal spot for drinks and watching the sun draw down on a balmy summer's evening. If you wish to pop out to the pub for a meal then you haven't far to go as the Manor House Inn is a 2 minute walk away. A shared front pathway runs a little way from the front door, giving access to the neighbouring property through a gate. Croyde offers you much as a holiday location, a renowned surfing beach, plus a great selection of pubs and restaurants, all set in a picturesque village. Surrounded by eye-catching countryside Devon Longstraw is ideal for families, equally perfect for couples, and is a welcoming home from home after a busy day exploring this wonderful area.

Fantastic stay in an excellent property. We will always use Marsdens when renting a cottage in Croyde as we have always been pleased with all aspects of the service.

Mr Richard S,

I love this property. We have been 4 times now. It's location, tucked away down a pretty path ,but so close to the village and it's dog friendly pubs, is perfect. Gorgeous walks from the doorstep. The land to Putsborough is idyllic, especially in the Spring and early summer. The beach at Putsborough is glorious and dog friendly all year, apart from a small section. Highly recommend it and we will be back for a fifth time.

Mrs Deb S,

The cottage is well presented and appointed, cosy and comfortable. It is conveniently located between Croyde Bay and Putsborough beaches. Putsborough beach, in particular, is absolutely beautiful and also welcomes dogs all year round. There are many walks that can be navigated straight from the cottage and Croyde hosts a good number of cafes and restaurants. We had a lovely family holiday and would love to return to the cottage and Croyde again.

Dr Andrew R,

Ideally located cottage with most amenities in walking distance
