About K Dore

My husband grew up in Devon and spent many childhood summers in Croyde, camping and surfing. When we first met we would drive from London to spend many weekends there enjoying the beautiful beach, surfing, walking and the village pubs and restaurants. We spent the week before getting married relaxing in the dunes (wedding dress in box in back of the car). Work has taken us to USA but we continue to use the property on a regular basis and invite family and friends to enjoy the house and the beautiful surrounding coastal area.

K Dore purchased this house in 2005

Why K Dore chose North Devon

Its our home.

Great house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this great house, lots of room even when we had a couple of family's there for the weekend everyone could find their own space and a nice big garden for the kids, all at the end of a quiet road. The weather was amazing for us so most days spent on the beach which is a short, easy for the kids walk away. Pubs and small local shops all within a short walk away. As we had such good weather we barely touched the car all week which was perfect. Croyde is a lovely village with great beaches and nice pubs all close. Great house in a wonderful place would definitely come back again!

Fabulous holiday rental - already rebooked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant location on the quieter side of Croyde village and yet a few minutes walk from all that the village has to offer. House is large and very well equipped. Lots of internal reception space so we all had room to find a quiet corner away from others and lots of bedrooms so plenty of flexibility in sleeping arrangements. Our four children made the most of the sizeable and secure garden and the outside eating areas and barbecue were appreciated. The hot outside shower is genius. Easy walk to Croyde beach via Sandy Way and easy drive to other nearby beaches. Tesco delivered with no issues. Lots of information provided on local activities by the owner. Very responsive owner and local property manager should there be any issues.

Was originally a little nervous about booking through Owner's Direct but our holiday was a huge success and we have already rebooked for next year! Would highly recommend.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was a great experience.

Everything exceeded expectations -from the huge, pristine garden to the immaculate condition of the house. There was more than enough space for 10 of us, with privacy if you needed in a self contained annexe.

The location was excellent for both the village and the beach, both a short walk away. Some incredible walks just on the doorstep too.

Would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone, and hope to stay there again next time we're in Croyde.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our party was 4 small children and 6 adults and we fitted in very comfortably. There is plenty of indoor space should the weather be poor, with two separate tv rooms in addition the the main lounge area. There is plenty of car parking and loads of lawn / garden. It is in a secluded quite lane so close to all the facilities. The nearby pubs and restaurants are all good. It is about 1Km walk to the nearest beach by a choice of mainly off road paths. Also at the end of the lane, about 100m, is the start of a footpath that can take you to Saunton Sands, the Coast Path etc. A very enjoyable time was had by all. Thanks.
