About the Owner
I am lucky enough to be a self- employed gardener. I also ran a successful B&B in my house in Sandy Way Croyde for 6 years until 2014. Being a local girl having grown up in the area and lived in Croyde since 1979 I know the area well. I've enjoyed meeting people from all over the country and have got a great deal of satisfaction from their reaction when they arrive at the B&B and from their enjoyment of my beautiful village. I feel lucky to have the privilege of living in Croyde with everything it has to offer. For a small place it has a big personality. You will never be bored if you stay here. I do the changeovers at the houses myself so that I can keep a high standard of cleanliness and add those personal touches which freshens things up. I want it feel warm and welcoming when you arrive. I love to travel and stay in lots of different types of accommodation. I find this really helpful for my own properties as I am always looking to improve. I genuinely want people to have a great holiday!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Myself, my husband, little girl and parents stayed in this property for a week.
Lovely house which is looked after by the Owner who is very helpful, scones cream and jam were waiting for us on arrival :-)
The house is very clean and modern with excellent facilities, fast wifi, new washing machine and tumble dryer etc and a lovely new bathroom. Everything was very clean and there is a view of the sea from the second bedroom.
The location is great within walking distance to the beach and the Croyde shops and pubs.
We visit Croyde each year and will definitely book again,I would highly recommend it.
From the Owner
“Location, location, location! I bought this house because it is perfect for holiday letting. It has a lovely open feel with views to the beach, the headland, the village and the countryside, yet is easily accessible. There is a choice of beaches nearby and Exmoor is not far away. I know people who live in the road and they love it. I used to do a garden down there and was always struck by how peaceful and friendly it was just with the sound of the sea and birds.”

From the Owner
“This property has everything you'd want. It is convenient to the amenities yet tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac so very quiet and safe. Being detached it is set away from the other houses so is very private with no passers-by. Yet a stones throw away is the hub of Croyde with its quaint cottages and high standard of pubs, restaurants and shops. The life guarded sandy beach is a level easy walk or you can chill in the secluded sunny garden. It has ample storage for every outdoor activity. A perfect base for any holiday.”
