A great property for a family holiday! Excellent location!
Great location, Fantastic property
This was our first time away with our baby granddaughter and what a lovely place to stay to celebrate this. Looks are deceptive when arriving but once you step inside there is a wonderful feel to the house along with quite enough space. All areas are very tastefully decorated, there is plenty of space in the open plan kitchen, dining, living area and if that is not enough a summer house and outdoor seating. It is a very quiet location but it only takes a few minutes to walk to the local pubs and a few shops. You can walk to the beach in about 10 minutes and if you want to push yourself a walk around baggy point will take about an hour. This house had such a lovely feel to it that we will return next year.
We had a rather delightful time!
My Mum, Dad and Grandparents all came here with me to stay. We had a rather delightful time! We all slept magnificently. I simply LOVED the secret bookcase door and the sliding picture; they're right out of a mystery novel! I would recommend the walk out to Baggy Point because it isn't too strenuous, and it has a wonderful view at the end. Dunster Castle is also worth a visit (and the quaint little village), even though it is about an hour and a half away from Croyde. Croyde Bay is great for surfing. You can swim there but within the flags (there are fierce undercurrents). It's fun jumping the waves. In Croyde: the Croyde Ice Cream Parlour is AMAZING, go to The Stores for tea and cake, Saltrock is a really nice shop, buy swimsuits from The Beach Hut and on Thursdays there is a lovely little craft market just outside and inside the village hall. We've all had such a nice time. There was a problem with the sliding doors, but it was dealt with very well and swiftly. Thank you!
A wonderful place to spend a May Bank Holiday!
Great house and setting, our favourite place in the UK! Love the bookshelf door and outside area. Great house for a family gathering, loved the outside seating area and inside of the house worked well for us all. We love Croyde and will be back.
Thanks for a great stay!
Loved the hidden bedroom. Really nice house, many thanks
Fantastic property in a superb location for village centre
Stayed at Driftwood as a celebration of our 25th wedding
anniversary - bringing together our three children and partners.
Our large 'ish' party of 7 adults was certainly accommodated with
ease in this stylish and spacious property. An exceptional job has
been done with the recent refurbishment creating a real holiday
vibe, the open plan living / dining / kitchen area is a
particularly lovely social space where everyone can congregate. We
ate out at the local pubs a few nights but equally enjoyed cooking
ourselves at the property and sitting round the large dining table
playing board games afterwards with a glass of wine or two!
Brilliantly located for the pubs and village centre and only a 10
mins or so to the beach. We enjoyed loads of walking in and around
Croyde and of course Baggy Point is a must if you are visiting
Croyde. The only slight negative would be the fact that the back
garden doesn't catch very much sun so we perhaps didn't enjoy the
outdoor space as much as we would otherwise have done (I accept of
course that nothing can be done about this so just an observation
really). Wouldn't hesitate to return in the future and thank you
for a fabulous week.
Ocean Cottages response:
Thank you for the fabulous review of Driftwood. We are sorry to hear that you did not experience much sun in the garden, we can confirm that as the seasons progress this property is blessed with lots of sunshine and blankets are provided to enjoy the sunny evenings in the garden to take away the slight chill! We hope that we can welcome you back to Driftwood in the near future.
We have had a wonderful week staying in Driftwood
The space has allowed all our family to holiday together and create lovely lifelong memories. The closeness to the village amenities (pubs) has been a real positive and we have enjoyed lovely meals at The Thatch and Blue Groove. The surf shop on the corner of the road opposite The Thatch was good value for money and our grown-up children enjoyed a couple of days body boarding. Lots of lovely long walks including Baggy Point which is well worth the effort. Thank you very much.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in this fantastic home.
Fun, family friendly house in great location
We have all had a wonderful holiday in Croyde despite the very wet start which improved throughout the week.
Many thanks for a great week in Croyde in a fantastic house! See you next year!
Thanks so much for a lovely stay, it has been our first family holiday in Devon, and we have absolutely fallen in love!
We are honoured to have been the first visitors to Driftwood since all the new building has been completed - and it is beautiful!
