About the Owner

Hi, my name is Mhorag Clarke and normal life for me, hubby Rob and our 2 girls is sadly a long way from the beach. My first experience of Croyde was a camping trip in 1998 and I loved it then and knew I would be back.

After many holidays in Croyde over the past 18 years we finally decided to buy a holiday home in 2012 and when we found this property we knew it was in the right place for us.

Now, after a lot of hard work and major renovations, the house is how we want it to be and we are more then happy to share it with others who can also enjoy lovely Croyde.

As an active family we can surf, bodyboard or take the dogs for run on the beach and in the dunes. We also love to cycle and there are a number of great cycle routes in the area (some with hills that you will either love or hate!).

We try to get to the house as often as possible as we love the sea and the area in general but it is quite a long journey from our home near Milton Keynes.

We have tried to think of everything possible to make the house the perfect holiday home so we hope you enjoy it if you decide to stay. :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Bridgeford Bothy is perfect. It's a beautifully decorated and well stocked cottage.

It easily sleeps 4, but seems to expand too if needed. The huge TV

and exhaustive DVD collection is perfect for those tired nights in after

a hard day surfing the magnificent Croyde bay. The Bothy is within a stone's throw of the beach and local shops and pubs, but also a brilliant location for exploring Croyde and the surrounding area.

We had an absolutely superb weekend of surfing here and would come back

again and again! Loads of love,Gina X"

"We had a lovely time in the Bothy. It's beautifully decorated, with a family feel, and a great location for the beaches as well as walking to the pubs and shops." Diana Herschell.

Warm and cosy

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a 4nt stay, took my 3yr old grandson and cocker spaniel Maxx. We had a lovely time. The bungalow was very well equipped with the most comfortable beds and warm duvets. Plenty of dvds and games to occupy us when we were too exhausted to go out in the evenings due to being out all day! Maxx the dog has never walked so much. Felt really at home here, location perfect. Am already considering booking again soon!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely home in August 2013. It's clean, very homely and has everything you could need. It is exactly as advertised and as shown in the pictures. The owners are very thoughtful and it is such a welcoming place. The village and the beach are only a short walk away and being able to borrow the surf board and boogie boards is a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to return one day.

We (2 adults, 2 boys age 12 and 10 and 1 dog) had a lovely week here. The bungalow has got everything you need. Great position for the beach and village, 5min walk to either. Lovely and clean, decor clean and bright. Owner was very helpful and while we were there we had a problem with the shower which was sorted by the local caretaker quickly.

We have been to Croyde many times and just love the whole area. Clean safe beaches for all ages. Good pubs and restaurants which accept dogs (and children)!!!!

Would recommend to anyone.

From the Owner

Croyde has always had a special place in our hearts because it such a pretty village. We fell in love the area many years ago as the beaches are amazing and the general buzz and friendly atmosphere around the village itself. The village is fairly small so easy to get around and has everything to offer including Bakery, Post Office, Ice Cream and Fudge Shops, Surf Schools and Surf shops, Cafés and Pubs. We particularly enjoy the cheesy chips at the Thatch and the pub food at the Kings Arms in Georgeham. Once you are in the village you don't need your car to get around as everywhere is within walking distance. There is also a lot of great cycling to be done either on the very hilly climbs out of Croyde or on the Tarka trail which is family friendly. The area is generally very dog friendly so they can have fun too.
