“A Fantastic Family Home”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in April 2013

There is part of me that didn't want to write this review, the selfish part that wants to keep this venue a secret, so it can be our little holiday get away. However in the spirit of the human kindness I will let everyone now know just how great this place is....

Firstly the home is modern and spotless with an array of fixtures and fittings that look like they have come from a Kirstie Allsopp TV special. It has everything a family needs, the ensuites, the washing machine, the wetroom for the just back from the beach "de-sanding" - everything.

Next is the location, in my opinion there is none better. You wake up to the sound of the sea, you spend all day on the beach (which is very literally a stones throw from the back of the house) and then you go to sleep to, yep you've guessed it, the sound of the sea. For a family having a permanent base so close to soft sand and roaring surf means that trips to the beach don't require the usually packing and unpacking of an army like kit bag. If you forget or need something, who cares, the house is 30 seconds away.

Croyde itself is a beautiful place to be, there are wonderful walks, quaint tea rooms (one opposite the house) and of course surfing! There are also pubs within walking distance for when you need that holiday drink.

All in all this house is the most perfectly set up and located holiday home you could ever wish for. I could go on for another twenty paragraphs but I think you already get the idea that for me, you can stick your Costa dels where the English sun don't shine. I'll be back here sooner rather than later.
