great located cottage and spacious garden.
We had a lovely time in Croyde and very lucky with weather.
The cottage lounge and kitchen were nice and parking was great but a few things needed attention.
Kids couldn't sleep well on the single beds they were very uncomfortable so they had to move to the double bed. The lounge had no tables to put your cups or glasses on. There were not enough glasses or cutlery so Kids had to drink out of whisky tumblers.Bottle opener had only one arm.Barbecue and table and chairs were dirty, no umbrella for shade.It took over an hour to clean before being fit to eat.Garden grass was long ,decking and walls needed some tlc.
Half of the remote controls hadn't got working batteries and no DVD player found.
Sorry to make these comments but the cottage was looking tired with a little attention to detail in and outside the cottage would bring it back to level you would expect. thanks
The holiday rental was good. Excellent showers. Main bedroom excellent. Very nice garden, central position. Good kitchen, but no corkscrew. Good lounge. The second bedroom was the let down. Whilst it has a double bed, the room is too small to accommodate such a bed, with very little circulation space. The room had no wardrobe to store clothes. The attempt to provide hanger space on a rail clearly demonstrates the lack of circulation space. The mattress offered no support. Indeed when I sat on the side of the bed, I fell off the side. Very poor.
Everything you want in a holiday cottage!
Crydda cottage is comfortable and beautifully presented.
Everything was spotlessly clean and the kitchen is very well
equipped. There is a lovely garden with patio furniture backing
onto a hillside giving the impression of being somewhere much more
rural. Situated in the middle of this lovely coastal village, the
shops, pubs and restaurants are an easy walk away and within 20
minutes you are on the beach. We would thoroughly recommend this
Gorgeous, fully equipped cottage in the heart of Croyde
We absolutely loved our stay at this absolutely beautiful
cottage nestled behind a lovely church. It's close enough to all of
the local shops and pubs, but not so close to suffer from too much
noise. We stayed here just as a couple but you could easily fit a
family in here as there is ample room indoors and the outdoor space
is also big enough for family bbqs etc. Really can't find any fault
with this place, absolutely stunning.

lovely cottage in great location
Lovely cottage in fantastic location - spotlessly clean - we had
a lovely week - cottage had everything needed - beds were
comfortable - booking etc., was very easy
Delightful cottage for a family reunion
A lovely cottage in a quiet setting but within easy distance of
the beaches. Great for a family get together. Lovely garden and
great for the dog too. Only downside was that there was no hot
water when we arrived but this was rectified the following
Excellent, comfortable cottage
Thank you Ocean Cottages for stepping in at the last minute when
Choice Cottages cancelled our booking. Crydda Cottage was lovely.
From when opened the door where we found tea, coffee, milk and cake
waiting for us after a long journey to the gas barbecue and
excellent accommodation. Everything worked, location couldn't have
been better, lovely garden even the weather was good. Thank you. If
we had to be critical of anything it would be sofas in the lounge
which were uncomfortable and clearly passed their best. Saying that
we would have no hesitation of booking Crydda Cottage again through
Despite a wet and windy week, we had a wonderful stay.
The cottage has everything you need, is extremely comfortable and the location is fantastic for walking to the local pubs, restaurants and the beach. We all enjoyed meals at the Manor, Beachside Grill in Saunton and Cream teas at Mays Tea Rooms. All member of our party, aged from 4 - 70, had a fabulous stay at Crydda Cottage and we will hopefully be back again soon!
A pleasant stay, lots of good walking directly from the cottage.
Enjoyable meals at both The Thatch and The Manor House. Lovely cream tea in Lynton. Thank you for the cake.
a spacious and comfortable holiday home with character, ideal for a large family
we loved staying at Crydda Cottage. It is so well equipped and comfortably furnished. Lovely, light master bedroom with a great shower in the ensuite too and access to the garden. All the teenagers could escape to their bedrooms if they wanted or play games in the dining room whilst others watched TV or read in the lounge. Very well located too, close to everything in Croyde. We had a great week and hope to return soon
Really lovely cottage for our new year break.
Property is well equipped and comfortable with some nice touches on our arrival (Cake, Christmas tree etc). Had a fab time and I am sure we will be back! Thank you.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in this fantastic home.
Thanks for a lovely week at Crydda Cottage. This holiday home is so comfortable, spacious and well equipped. It has been a great home for our Christmas break. Thank you so much for preparing the house for our arrival. Milk, tea and even a Yule log waiting for us! We hope to return before long.
Message from the children: We all had our own bedroom which was good and the light up mirror was great for make-up. The dog liked trying to eat the bin too!we had lots of fun debates who was to do the washing up but it was a good Xmas getaway. The bunk beds were a bit of a squeeze even to the shortest member of the family though. Lovely visit and a great pool game at the pub!
Thank you for a lovely week in your beautiful cottage.

Beautifully decorated cottage. Lovely wooden floors, clean pretty garden. My son loved the bubble bath (doesn’t normally like baths). Daughter loved double bed in 2nd bedroom. Love Croyde, short walk to shops, restaurants and beach.

perfect base to explore this beautiful part of Devon
Great stay in Croyde at the lovely Crydda Cottage. It's been the perfect base to explore this beautiful part of Devon. We've had a fantastic time & had a lovely BBQ on the deck.
For anyone else visiting we highly recommend that you check out the deck chair cinema, the local farmers market (Tues), Craft Market and of course give surfing a go on Croyde Beach (Thanks to Lyndon Wake surf school for getting us on our feet!)
A walk to Baggy point is also a good way to spend a few hours & get some great views of the bay.
One last thing- you can't beat The Thatch!

the log burner was brilliant and made for cosy evenings in
We have been to Croyde a few times and we love the village, beaches and area already. Crydda Cottage is right in the heart of the village but set back from the main road so is very quiet. All the village shops and pubs are a couple of minutes walk away which is great and the beach is also very close and is beautiful.
The cottage itself is lovely, we stayed in October and the log burner was brilliant and made for cosy evenings in. It is well decorated and a pleasure to stay. Bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Kitchen is very well equipped and it was lovely that washing up cloths, tea towels, washing up liquid and other basics were provided.
Loved it and would definitely recommend and go again.

The cottage is cosy and perfect for a winter getaway.
Stayed at Crydda for the New Year with family and friends and had an amazing time. The cottage is cosy and perfect for a winter getaway. Great living room with a wood burner, the kitchen had all the equipment you would need and a wonderful heated floor. The cottage is tastefully decorated with attention to detail. Although it was a winter stay the garden was a good size and would be perfect for summer. The cottage is only a minute walk away from the Manor pub and 5-10 to the Thatch and Billy Buds. The only slight negative is that the shower in the ensuite and downstairs was pretty small, manageable but none of us were particularly big. Would definitely book again.
We loved the cottage and all the surrounding area
We loved the cottage and all the surrounding area as much on our second visit here. Hope to return again. Thank you.
We will certainly consider Ocean Cottages for future holidays
Thank you we did have an enjoyable stay at Crydda Cottage in Croyde. The cottage was well appointed and comfortable and we had everything we needed. Croyde was extremely busy at the time of our visit and it was nice to be tucked away in a quiet spot. We will certainly consider Ocean Cottages for future holiday accommodation
have twice stayed at Crydda cottage and would highly recommend it
We have twice stayed at Crydda cottage and would highly recommend it. We are three generations - ourselves, sons and their wives and grandchildren and we had a great time. The weather was amazing and the facilities at the cottage were brilliant. Matilda (our housekeeper) was most helpful with the couple of queries we had and resolved them quickly.
We would happily stay here again.
All of the Greenways stay was great fun and also very nice. Mummy and daddy also had great fun. Ben XOXO
Crydda cottage is furnished and decorated to a very high quality
Crydda cottage is furnished and decorated to a very high quality. The beds were deliciously comfortable (of some importance when you're over 50) and the rooms were light and pretty. The bedrooms were not huge and if we had one criticism it was that the two shower rooms were decidedly cramped - if you're a man over six feet tall with shoulders more than two feet wide you're going to be squeezing to get in and out of the shower. But on the plus side the master bedroom was spacious and had doors out onto a very private sun-terrace, where we spent a lot of time. The garden was well-planted and gorgeous, and we ate outside most nights. We went with four teenagers - the cottage was big enough for them to occupy themselves in teenagery ways without getting under one another's feet. It was walking distance to pubs shops and restaurants, there was riding, quad-biking and golfing nearby. I would certainly stay there again.
