Inside it is warm and comfortable with new double glazing and central heating making it super cosy all year round. An airy newly appointed and furnished open plan ground floor is perfect for a sociable holiday. Superfast WIFI and smart TVs in both bedrooms and lounge will keep you entertained. You can choose to open up the patio sliding doors to the garden deck which is equipped with large picnic table, bench and chairs, massive turquoise beanbags, deck chairs and BBQ. The twin room has beautiful uninterrupted views out to the sea and over Baggy Point and its own family sized bathroom, whilst the double has a good sized ensuite with generous walk in waterfall shower. Sink into award winning Soak and Sleep Feather and Down bedding with White Company linen and step out on lovely new carpet in both rooms. Having run a B&B I know a good night sleep makes for a good holiday. There are even 2 depth pillows for back or side sleepers. This winter the house has been completely gutted and everything is new, classic, chintz free and fresh. In the garage you can store all your sports equipment and Croyde offers as much activity as you can take. There are wetsuit wash and drying areas too and a downstairs indoor shower with WC for when you come off the beach. Unfortunately safe disabled access has not been possible this year.The Friday changeover to miss the traffic is proving popular. If the weeks you had in mind are booked try my sister properties very nearby and of a similar standard both sleeping max 4, ref 5653539 and ref 8795782 both Saturday changeovers. These references only work if you book with Holidaylettings which is affiliated to Tripadvisor, and don't work the Tripadvisor site itself only the Holidaylettings site. Travel cot mattress size 122x60cm. I'd love to welcome you to stay.More

A lovely modern, clean and comfortable, very well equipped house in a beautiful setting. Lots of thoughtful extras made it a pleasure to return there after a busy day. Private garden. Perfect location with short walk to both beach and vibrant village. Would definitely return.
