About the property

Bungalow in Croyde, North Devon, England - Newly tastefully refurbished bungalow new appliances throughout,central heating, pure cotton bedding

Relax in this newly renovated conveniently situated bungalow. Wander along the level footpath the short walk to beautiful Croyde beach and village from this quiet cul de sac, then back to sit around the generous stylish table for an alfresco lunch in the large sunny garden laid to lawn. Snooze it off in deck chairs and loungers. Then in the evening a 5 minute walk gets you to the popular village with its choice of pubs, shops, and restaurants, playgrounds and volleyball nets. Hopefully a skatepark too. Or settle down in the tastefully decorated lounge to a bluray video, Freesat TV or listen to music on the iphone speaker. There is super fast broadband too. Then sleep in White Company pure cotton on the softest mattress toppers, in feather and down bedding in country calm lulled by the sound of the sea. If you like to get active the garage can store surfboards, kayaks, climbing equipment etc and there is a garden hose to wash them down. A well appointed kitchen will keep enthusiastic cooks happy with a breakfast bar and sunny dining area adjacent for those who like to chat as they cook. Little ones are fully catered for with new highchair, cot, and mattress and a walk to the beach little legs can easily manage. As you know your baby best the baby bedding is left for you to bring with you. Sofa throws provided in case of sticky fingers. Wifi is available too at no extra charge. If this is booked on the weeks you would like try our sister property in the next road E9494.

About Jane Baker

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. 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.

Jane Baker purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Jane Baker chose North Devon

This property is ideal for holidays being 500m from both the lovely sandy beach and coast path and the village with its pubs shops and restaurants as well as a stones throw from a pool,sauna,gym,jacuzzi. I just couldn't fault it. Then when I saw how well it had been renovated with all new fixtures and fittings and how light and airy it felt it was perfect. Add to that the generous level garden great for ball games and alfresco dining my mind was made up.

What makes this bungalow unique

Conveniently positioned with all new mod cons I'm confident any guest will have a lovely holiday at this property. Croyde has everything for every personality and most requirements. Whether you want a quiet nature based experience, a sport mad one, like to be entertained or just want to chill this is your perfect base.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This holiday home is fantastic for a family of 4. Modern, clean and furnished / fitted to a high standard. Really well equipped and spacious kitchen with good dining space. Great garden too for children to play in and for relaxing using the range of garden furniture. Perfect location only a short walk from the beach, the village shops and the Unison resort with indoor pool& tennis courts. We had a very relaxing week and it felt like a home from home. I am sure we will be back!
