Chuggs Chill Out is a 2 bedroom traditional thatched cottage with plenty of characterful features and a fabulous garden area with fire pit, BBQ and hot tub (charges apply) to 'chill out' in after a hard day at the beach!


Located close to the centre of Croyde, this charming 2 bedroom cottage offers space, character and an amazing 'chill out' zone in the garden!  Perfect for families seeking a traditional piece of Croyde accommodation with a beachy twist.

Chuggs Chill Out is a traditional thatched cottage which dates back to the 18th century and was originally part of Chuggs Farm.  The property has been lovingly restored with traditional & more modern features giving it a really unique feel with low beams*, large solid wood doors, stone fireplace with original bread oven, coupled with driftwood hand rail, electric Aga, wall murals painted by local artist Steve P.P and an adornment of sea shells and decorations.  This property offers comfort and relaxation for the whole family.


The living/dining room is spacious with plenty of comfortable seating plus dining seating for up to 6 people.  There is a smart tv, DVD player and an assortment of DVD's and games to keep everyone entertained.  The real feature of the room is the beautiful stone fireplace with feature log burner (not in use) and original bread oven.


The kitchen is well equipped with electric Total control Aga & hot plates, dishwasher, Smeg fridge/freezer and plenty of pots and pans to cook up a feast if you wish.


From the living room stairs* with driftwood hand rail lead up to the first floor where there is a stunning master bedroom with original vaulted ceiling, a superking bed, tv and a pull out bed suitable for a child (charges apply).  There is also a bunk bed room with tv & DVD player


Downstairs there is shower & utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.  Upstairs there is a family bathroom with shower attachment over the bath.


Outside, the driveway parking for 2-3 cars is accessed via the driveway for Chuggs Cottage, through two gates.  The original front door gives access to the front garden and road.  There is an outside hot/cold shower, perfect for washing off after the beach and cleaning wetsuits.  The pièce de résistance is the fabulous secluded rear garden area which has a Scandavian feel to it with a large decked area and sunken Cedar Wood barrel hot tub (charges apply), undercover oil drum BBQ with chimney for 'al-fresco' cooking in all weathers! Handmade solid wood garden furniture and original open air Kadai fire bowl which can also be used as a BBQ.  The garden has been very thoughtfully designed in order to allow use all year round.

A wonderful beach retreat for families

We had a week stay at Chuggs Chill Out cottage in Croyde. The house was very clean and perfectly equipped for our stay. Communication with Ocean Cottages was easy and they were responsive and informative. The property was wonderful; comfy and cozy interior, fun and well equipped hot tub and bbq area and a ten minute walk to the beach.

Comfortable,cosy cottage with awesome hot tub.

Ideally located for village shops, pubs and beach. Croyde has a lovely friendly feel. We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage garden is secluded and a great place to chill !

We enjoyed Chuggs Chill-Out so much!

We were lucky with the weather which is when the fabulous outdoor area comes into its own. The hottub and bbq area is just outstanding and a real sun trap! The house itself is quirky and fun with all the things you need to work absolutely spot on. We loved it and would absolutely go back again!

Beautiful Cottage

Beautiful cottage and garden, very cosy and in walking distance from all of the shops and beach. The ice cream shop was a hit with all of the family. Hot tub was an amazing help after cold surfing days. So sad to be leaving, we hope to come again.

Just perfect....

From the cosy lounge, well fitted kitchen, two bathrooms and washer and dryer, comfy beds and the amazing private garden!! Many an hour in that garden with the BBQ and the fire pit - just perfect. 2 mins walk from the pub and 10 min walk to the beach..cant get better than that. Not telling anyone about this want to keep it a secret!!!
