Gizzy made me feel at home. I was there for 3 days and couldn't have been any better. She makes really nice breakfast and she was really helpful. Great location :) Thanks Gizzy for all your help (and Easter eggs), see you next time!

Gizzy was extremely welcoming and we immediately felt at home and relaxed after a long drive from London. The room was spotlesslessly clean and the room and bed were very comfortable. We awoke in the morning to the aroma of Gizzy's delicious breakfast which was the perfect start to the day. During our short 2 night stay we enjoyed long...

Gizzy made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Myself and my pregnant wife were treated warmly throughout our stay. Gizzy was very knowledgable about the area. Great location and very relaxed. Our breakfast was cooked to perfection! Really clean throughout. One of the best B&B's we have stayed in. We will definitely be coming back to Thistledoo in...

Welcoming clean and well presented b&b and the warmth of the hosts is the real plus. Stayed for 2 nights and really think its great value and 5 minute walk to Croyde beach and short distance from town.Highly recommended.

I spent several days at Thistledoo, with a 2 day break in between down in cornwall, and as I've said before, I really like staying here - great breakfast and a comfy bed, and most importantly, just a 5 minute walk away from croyde beach. Highly recommended.

My 6th visit to Gizzy's B&B. Very clean, tidy and relaxed. Gizzy always makes you feel very welcome. Rven with a 5 month old baby in tow. The best B&B I've visited by far. Great breakfast too. Thanks Gizzy see you next time .

A wonderful B&B in Croyde! We booked last minute and Gizzy couldn't have been more helpful. A great family room for 3, spotlessly clean and great facilities. Breakfast was perfect, setting us up well for a busy day of surfing and exploring. Gizzy was brilliant and so kind, giving us great advice on everything from surfing to ice cream shops!...

This is the most perfect little b and b so close to the town centre and the beach! Gizzy is the most welcoming host and makes a fabulous breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead. The rooms are super clean and the beds comfy. We stay here whenever we head to the coast. Would highly recommend ❤

share a family run b&b with Gizzy (great breakfasts & local advice) & Alistair (surfing knowledge) in a clean modern house with a comfy bed, at the end of a cul-de-sac not far from Croyde centre & a pleasant walk down to the nearby beach

“The room we had was very spacious, first floor, at the end on the left as you come up the stairs..good for a couple....it was above the kitchen so a little noisy if you want to sleep in in the morning, but also right next to a bathroom, so very handy.”
