About the Owner

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", and "Golden Hours" Beach Cottages are home from home for many regular guests.
