Lovely well appointed cottage

An ideal holiday cottage. Good outdoor space and bbq. Great kitchen leading onto the garden. Good location for the beach.

Thoughtful decor, cosy and homely

Really enjoyed staying at Bay Cottage It was really spacious and you have thought of everything we needed. Nice touch was the array of toys and books to keep the grandchildren amused. Would come again

wonderful place

It's hard to think of a more wonderful place when the sun is shining, the kids are happy on the beach and Blue Groove awaits! We have rarely strayed form Croyde this time and all the better for it.  Thank you

thank you

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful home from home setting for our week in Croyde!  We have absolutely loved the house and Croyde and will definitely come again!

Weather has been lovely with just a couple of slightly chillier days but we have so enjoyed being mainly in Croyde with lovely cafes/shops and the family loved surfing! Beach is gorgeous!

beautiful home

Thank you for the use of your beautiful home.  Such a lovely atmosphere, we felt immediately relaxed.  Just what was needed.  A nice time to visit Croyde, before the summer madness.  Lovely walk around Baggy Point, trip to Lynton & Lynmouth, lunch at Sandleigh tea rooms, breakfast at the stores is fab.  The craft fayre on Thursday was lovely to walk around several purchases made.  Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms Georgeham is good.  All in all we had a very relaxing, much needed break.  Looking forward to returning.  Best wishes

An excellent holiday house

Two families stayed at Bay Cottage for the week. It is in an excellent location in Croyde. The house is well stocked, and well loved and I would recommend this property to anyone. A great house and a lovely place for a holiday.

all we needed for a very comfortable stay for nine of us.
Bay Cottage had all we needed for a very comfortable stay for nine of us. it is very clean, nicely decorated (mostly white), and very well-equipped. Very close to the village centre, shops & pubs. Walk-able to the beach, (about 15 mins.), but not with all our clobber! The bottle of wine in fridge when we arrived was very welcome.

Lovely cottage, very comfortable.
Lovely cottage, very comfortable. The weather has been good - lots of days body boarding in the sea and relaxing on the beach.

tastefully decorated and furnished
Bay Cottage is a lovely house, tastefully decorated and furnished. It is a quiet, attractive residential area within walking distance of the small town and the beach. We chose Bay Cottage for a multi generational family holiday, and we all loved it, from 8 year old to grandparents. We hope to return.

The house is very child friendly
My friend's parents booked a long weekend at Bay Cottage for her, as a surprise for her Wedding anniversary, to take her husband and a group of 6 friends (8 of us altogether). The house is very child friendly with games & highchair etc, but we decided to enjoy a child free weekend so left the bambinos at home. The house was very easy to find, and we were given clear instructions on how to access the key for the house. The house was beautifully decorated (with a coastal theme of course) and very clean. There are 2 bedrooms on ground floor with 1 bathroom, and 2 bedrooms upstairs with 1 ensuite bathroom. Lounge was comfortable and cosy and kitchen a good size for us all. The location is fantastic, 1-2 min walk from The Thatch pub, 10-15 walk to beach. We were there for 3 nights, we ate at the pub the first night (great food), had a BBQ the second night (BBQ and all kitchen equipment/tools/plates/cutlery etc included), & fish and chips takeaway the 3rd night. On the second day we drove to Braunton and hired bikes to cycle the Tarka Trail to Barnstaple. We highly recommend it, it was so much fun. The cycle hire shop offered tandems, we couldn't resist! On one evening, because we're big children at heart, we played Hide & Seek in the house. I've never laughed so much in my life, at the sight of 20-something adults squashed in a wardrobe and under the bed! The beds were very comfy, the house was the perfect temperature, and the showers were easy to use. We never ran out of hot water even though there were 8 of us. We spent a day at the beach and built sandcastles and paddled in the sea, something i haven't done since i was little. Overall, some great memories were made. i would definitely return to this house, and will recommend it to everyone.

This is a beautifully cosy well kept cottage
This is a beautifully cosy well kept cottage with all the home comforts and conveniences you could want. Our family age ranged from 7-months to 85 years, (6 adults and 2 babies) and we all had a lovely time and we definitely would highly recommend both this cottage and the level of service we experienced from Ocean Cottages. We will be arranging another family get together again soon and yes we will be choosing to stay with Ocean Cottages again for a second time.

The beds amazing and I can honestly say I had the best week of sleep ever!
We went to Croyde for a week with our friends and our children. (4 adults and 4 children) it was our first visit but our friends have stayed in Croyde several times. The village was beautiful, the scenery amazing and the atmosphere very relaxing. We stayed in Bay Cottage which was brilliant. A beautiful four bedroom house with everything we needed. The beds were amazing and I can honestly say I had the best week of sleep ever! We will definitely be visiting Croyde again and using Ocean Cottages for our accommodation. Thank you for a fab week

one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in
We had a fabulous stay at Bay Cottage for New Year 14/15. The cottage is well appointed, really lovely furnishings (one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in) and some great additions like a selection of children’s books and toys and DVDs - perfect for our 2 families with young children. Plus only a 1 minute stroll to the Thatch pub and the path to the beach. We would definitely recommend Bay Cottage!

the bedding and soft furnishings are all fabulous
Thank you very much indeed for the use of your beautiful cottage. We all very much enjoyed spending time in such lovely surroundings. The cottage is extremely comfortable for children with attention to detail such as highchairs and travel cots! Likewise the bedding and soft furnishings are all fabulous and have made our stay even more comfortable. Our highlights include many of those already mentioned such as The Thatch Pub, the walk to Croyde Beach and the lovely ice cream. However on rainy days can we recommend Cascades (swimming pool & slides) which our children simply LOVED! Plus the Prate Minin Golf at Woolacombe. All in all a wonderful cottage in lovely surrounds! All the best for 2015!

Sufficient space inside and out for adults and children alike.
August 2014- Bay Cottage has an excellent location within Croyde village. A short walk to the local shops and beach too. The cottage was suitable for two families with young children ( ages 2, 3, 5 & 10 years). Very child friendly and well thought out. Sufficient space inside and out for adults and children alike. The outdoor shower came in very handy after days out at the beach. A week wasn't long enough. There were no complaints from the children and adults too. We all loved the cottage. Hope to return soon.

stylishly furnished with light and airy beach house feel
We travelled with friends to this holiday home in Croyde. Fabulously located in the centre of the village close to all the shops and pubs. The house has been stylishly furnished with light and airy beach house feel. It is comfortable and spacious. We stayed with friends who have four small children, it worked perfectly as the owners themselves have young children and have thought about the layout and what is needed for a family holiday home.

The photographs in the advert for this property does not do it justice
Fantastic place to stay, loads of toys for the children, books for the adults, well equipped kitchen, comfortable seating in the lounge and the beds were very comfortable and on top of all this easy access to the beach. The week flew by and non of us wanted to leave. The photographs in the advert for this property does not do it justice it is so much better.

The Garden area was large enough for everyone to dine
A very well presented and furnished to a high standard cottage in a superb location within Croyde Bay. Our party was made up of two families and the cottage catered very well for this offering an upstairs for one and downstairs for another. A large communal living and dining area and a full equipped kitchen with a complimentary welcome basket of goodies. The Garden area was large enough for everyone to dine and we enjoyed a bbq in the evening. A stones throw from the beach, good local pubs, restaurants and shops. Very close to other beaches all with parking. We were lucky enough to be blessed with great weather and really didn't need to leave this location as the beach is fantastic and not too busy, perfect for all ages. One of the best places we have visited and would seriously revisit and stay in Bay Cottage.

The cottage surpassed my expectations!
The cottage surpassed my expectations! I could not belive when we walked in how amazing it was. It is very modern, clean and beautifully decorated. It is so well equipped. We travelled with our 3yr old and 1 yr old and there were books and toys there adequate enough that the children did not play with their own toys we took. They even had childrens DVDs available to watch. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you would need - there was even childrens utensils and plates. There was wi-fi internet, high chair, cot, we didnt want to leave to come home. I cannot recommend this property enough. It would easily sleep 8 and if you are thinking of taking a holiday and looking at this cottage - BOOK IT!! You will not be dissapointed. I found the company dealing with this property exteremely friendly and polite and no question was too much hassle for them before our stay. I would very highly booking any of their accomodation.

on a quiet road, but pretty much in the middle of the village
My wife and I stayed at Bay Cottage with our four young children (all under the age of five). The house is not only light and airy, it is really well furnished. Fantastic for big families - plenty of space inside and out - with lots of toys and games (and a DVD player!) to keep the kids occupied. The entertaining areas inside and out are great - we comfortably catered for friends visiting for dinner. Location couldn't be better - on a quiet road, but pretty much in the middle of the village, a two minute walk from the Thatch (village pub) and Billy Budds (great for the kids - with a climbing frame in the beer garden - and on the way back from the beach, so handy for a post-beach beer in the sunshine). The walk to the beach itself is a lovely route along a rural footpath from the village so it's easy (even with four kids in tow) and safe. Only one thing which could be improved is a guarantee on the weather! Would totally recommend the house. We loved it and look forward to going back next year!
