About the Owner
About Richard and Jenny Windsor
Jenny & Richard Windsor are long-term residents of Croyde, and since the mid-1970's they have been welcoming visitors to this beautiful area in North Devon. After co-managing one of Croyde's holiday parks for several years, they bought their first holiday home in the early 80's and in l985 purchased a C16th thatched farmhouse in the village centre to run as a guest house. Later, they had the opportunity to move to "Breakers", which is opposite the beach, where they continue to run their comfortable, friendly B&B. The adjacent property "Little Breakers" was developed by the couple in 2008 and is now a popular choice for holidaymakers who want to be near the surf beach. Their other properties "Sunrising", "Driftwood", "Golden Hours" Beach Cottages are home from home for many regular guests.
Richard and Jenny Windsor purchased this cottage in 1994
