This impressive five bedroom detached home (ideal for 9 or 10) with original building dating back to the 1860's is situated just outside the picturesque and popular village of Croyde with its large sandy cove that is a magnet for families and surfers alike. A local character pub serving meals is half a mile down the road with a further choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants just beyond in the centre of the village itself.
The original building dates back to the 1860's and Hillside has been extended and renovated to create a desirable holiday home, lovingly furnished, tastefully decorated and equipped for comfort and enjoyment by the owners. The house is an ideal choice to gather family or groups of friends, for special celebrations or fun and relaxing holidays. The approach to the house from the driveway is up a few steps. An attractive glass and wood vestibule to the side of the house has a beautiful tiled floor whilst a fabulous wet room is at the rear of the vestibule, ideal for rinsing away the sand under the showers when you have just come back from the beach. The beautiful living area benefits from a wood burning stove set in a part exposed stone and brick alcove with slate hearth. The dining table offers seating for ten, great for getting together to discuss plans for the next day's activities over an evening meal and glass of wine. The triple aspect kitchen space has been thoughtfully designed with granite worktops, contemporary white units and stone tile flooring. The hob is located in the central island and the kitchen is very well equipped. French doors open out onto the split level patio terrace complete with outdoor table, perfect for al fresco eating. A series of terrace lawns landscape the hill (so take care with young children on the slopes). A separate, smaller second living room/snug with a two seater sofa, at the front of the house, offers a quiet retreat for reading should you wish. One of the superb bedrooms is located downstairs across the hall from the snug.
Upstairs there are a further four bedrooms all with beautiful 'original' wooden flooring. The generous master bedroom and a second sumptuous double room both have en suite facilities. Each bedroom has been elegantly decorated and all bedrooms enjoy countryside views. Two of the bedrooms offer the option of either Twin or Superking to provide flexibility sleeping arrangements. A high quality bathroom with tongue and groove panelling, free standing slipper bath and separate large shower serves the other bedrooms. If you find you are able to tear yourselves away from Hillside, there is so much to do and see in this very popular part of Devon.

Thank you for letting us share Hillside with you for a week. Stayed here last summer and the stay was as great as the last. Fab house, relaxing. Winter in North Devon is fab. Big waves, frosty mornings & less people on the beach. Walked on the Burrows, great for dog walking + boys looking for bullets!!! (Thomas found 5). The Milky Way Brilliant! Worth a visit. Great food at the Manor Pub down the road.The W Family - 28th February 2016
You all did a great job with Hillside. Wrote by Jessica Morris aged 10. Thx sooo much. We enjoyed every moment. Stayed here for New Year 2015. We thought the house was amazing. Plenty of room for us to have our own space too. We've been on the beach which was great. The beds are soooo nice. You did a great job and the house was too because it was so beautifully decorated. Every night we stayed up and played games and made our own entertainment.Morris, Everitt and Shaw Family - 3rd January 2016
