Great place for a beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

Rockpool was one of the best holiday rentals I have stayed in .

We had 6 in our group and there was defiantly more than enough space for 4 more.

It was clean and spacious with an open plan kitchen and dining perfect for dinners.

Also perfectly located a 5 minute stroll from the best Croyde has to offer and a walk to the beach.
