A lovely holiday.

Lovely house,very well equipped. Plenty of space with a nice garden with enough shade to stay cool. Not sure we will be able to afford another stay but if we can we will be back.

So much fun

This stay is at Croyde was so much fun and the house was so easy to stay in. We have come to Croyde for so long and this house was the closest to the centre of the village. (practically in the centre!) It was clean and had everything we needed. We loved beins so close to everything. Hopefully we'll be able to stay here again, also the garden was fabulous!

Fabulous Cottage

The cottage is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was also spotlessly clean. The garden is safe and secure and the central location is fab. This was our second stay - it won't be our last !

Julie   Jul 2022
Fantastic as ever

A return visit and as fantastic as ever. Spotlessly clean with everything in the cottage you could want/need, so well equipped. We have been coming to Croyde for years but this is definately our favourite cottage, what a place, we had a great time!

  Jul 2022
Wonderful two weeks

We have had a wonderful two weeks here. Lovely house - so comfortable and central location in the village. Beautiful garden to relax in. We love Croyde and have been coming here for fifteen years so obviously have stayed in many properties. This one is certainly one of the best.

Fabulous house in a lovely setting .

Hills View has been a wonderful place to stay whilst holidaying in Croyde . We have been visiting the village for many years and think that this is one of the best places we have rented . It is comfortable , well equipped , has a lovely garden in which to relax and is perfectly situated in the heart of Croyde . Five stars from us all who stayed there .

Many zen moments here!

We've been coming to Devon, namely Croyde for years and I have to say this is my favourite place by far. I felt many zen moments here, the garden is magical. Thank you!

Enjoyable stay

We won a competition during the first Covid wave for NHS workers to stay for 3 nights in Croyde. Such a lovely thing for Ocean Cottages and the owners to do and we are so grateful. Feeling refreshed after a beautiful weekend away and a dip in the sea in January. Thank you

Sarah   Feb 2022
thank you

Just what a bunch of NHS workers needed after the pandemic! We love it here. Thank you!

Lovely house and fabulous garden in superb location.

House was great and garden was fantastic. Very clean and well equipped, lots of bowls etc in the kitchen so plenty of dishes for a BBQ with lots of sides. ( Maybe one or two pieces of tupperware would be helpful). The garden too was well equipped with picnic tables (2) benches, an umbrella and BBQ. The en suite bathroom to the main bedroom is massive (don't try and shower in there though as you will bang your head). The shared bathroom is perfectly adequate an the shower in the bedroom can be helpful. The location is great, a minute walk to the shops for a pasty. take away Pizza or ice cream. The post office/ shop is a minute away too. The pub, restaurant, tea room etc are all a minute or two walk and the beach is only 10-15 minute walk away ( no traffic on this route either). You can walk to Woolacombe and Saunton Sands (great hotel here for a spa). The bus stops right outside the house so people on the top deck look in the garden but we enjoyed waving to them so for us this was not a problem. I would thoroughly recommend staying in this house, especially if you have children as the garden is great and location could not be better. My only issue was being told you can't get in until 6pm (5pm pre Covid) but you have to be out by 9am. This is almost a whole day out of your holiday and seems a little excessive. Other than that a great stay thank you very much. Would come again.

Many thanks for your lovely review and helpful feedback! We have now reverted back to our pre-covid check-in and out times which are now 4pm and 10am.
Amazing location

You really do feel like you have the best location in Croyde. Shops, beach and restaurants are all within walking distance the bus stop is almost on your door step. Our home for the week had ample parking, super dog friendly, extremely clean and tidy. This was our second time visiting and can't wait for a 3rd.

Fantastic as always

We don't want to go home! Looking forward to coming down here in the New Year!

Lovely Cottage

Lovely cottage, great central location! We had lots of time in the sea and a great cycle to Ilfracombe and love Croyde!

Robert   Aug 2021
Lovely holiday house and garden in central location.

We spent a very enjoyable holiday at Hills View in Croyde. The house was well equipped, comfortable and clean. We loved the garden plenty of space for the children to play in and so pretty. The location is ideal with a 15minute, off road, walk to the beach and ice cream parlour just over the road.

Celia Davis   Aug 2021
Lovely relaxing stay.

This is a fantastic property in a central Croyde location. It was beautifully presented, very clean and well equipped. The reclining chairs in the lounge were very popular and the beds very comfortable. The garden is large and was really well enjoyed by the grandchildren. We had fantastic weather and ate in the garden nearly every day, and although on the main road it was private enough not to be a problem, and the closeness to the amenities outweighed any downside. Approximately 10 to 15 minutes easy walk to a super beach so not too far if you forget, or need to get something. All in all a brilliant holiday, and we wouldn't hesitate returning or using Ocean Cottages again.

Location, Location, Location

We had a great week staying at Hills View, its a lovely good size cottage in the Perfect Location. The Cottage was very clean and had all the amenities required and when coming back to Croyde it will be Hills View we will be choosing to stay.

Russell Grace   Aug 2021
Brilliant cottage and location, we all loved every minute.

The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we could've wanted. The garden was great for the dogs (and us!) and the location was perfect. The Kitchen was very well kitted out, all beds and settees were comfy. Couldn't ask for more, a real home from home.

Julie Broad   Jun 2021
A great Holiday!

A Great holiday in a brilliant location. Already planning our return

Great property

Excellent stay at Hills view cottage, great location and my 2 German short haired pointers enjoyed the large secure garden.The cottage was nice and clean.The only slight down side was the attention to cleanliness of the downstairs bedroom quilt and pillows which could do with been replaced as they were stained and tired.However I would definitely recommend and book this property in the near future.

Sara Burt   Sep 2020
Perfect holiday home

In an amazing position right in Croyde and beautiful garden with great views which we loved. Well equipped, homely and pristinely clean. Six of us and our dog enjoyed our stay and with the weather being not so good at times the cosy lounge and recliner settee was also welcome . We will definitely book again.

Wondeful house and location

Fabulous cottage !!
The cottage was lovely and ticked all the boxes. I have never walked into such a clean holiday home before as this one, such a pleasure. It had everything you needed plus comfort, the recliner sofa and chairs were so comfortable, just what you need to relax in after a day out. The garden was just brilliant, fully secure for our two collie dogs to play and run around in without having to worry about them. The location of the cottage was perfect, we were able to walk everywhere, great not to have to get the car out to go to the beaches, cafe's and pubs that were all within walking distance. We really did enjoy our stay at Hill's View and would definitely re visit and recommend. Just perfect !!

This is our 2nd time at HIlls View and it never disappoints!
It is a truly lovely house and superbly located for the village and the beach. We will definitely be back again as Croyde if one of our favourite places in Devon! The owners of this house are also super friendly and can't do enough for you if you need it.

of course we will have you back again! So glad you still find Croyde as fabulous as ever.
exceptionally well located in the heart of Croyde
Hills View is a lovely house with a great garden, perfect for both our daughters and 2 dogs. We had a very enjoyable week there in August and found the house very well equipped and exceptionally well located in the heart of Croyde - steps from the deli, village shop, pop up pizza stall, pubs and restaurants and even the deckchair cinema in the village hall across the road. An easy walk to the beach and good access to Saunton Sands for the dogs to have a run. Recommend highly.

The cottage is in an ideal position and felt like home fro home,
This is our second visit to Croyde - The cottage is in an ideal position and felt like home fro home, being cosy, fully equipped and peaceful. We're amazed how so many pubs and restaurants allow your dogs in!! Brilliant! The Kings Arms in Georgeham is fantastic and all the locals are so friendly. Braunton has a great pub (the building is shaped like a castle and overlooks the estuary, I can't remember it's name) We will definitely return to Croyde with the rest of the clan! Happy days!!

The "castle" is called The Braunton Inn and it is one of the many good eateries we have here
Perfect position and relaxing house and garden.
Fantastic stay, weather to die for. Perfect position and relaxing house and garden. Great BBQ. Will be returning next year.

A Delight in North Devon
Centrally located premises in the heart of an old North Devon Village. A haven for surfers, but also for those who simply want to walk and cycle and stay dry (weather dependant). The countryside is magnificent, the coast line dramatic, the views on a clear day exquisite . The accommodation was practical, homely and very comfortable. The owner was most helpful and the agents (Ocean Cottages) were efficient, helpful and patient. Being a dog friendly premises enhanced the whole experience as our friends hounds were able to join in and add to a very relaxing break away. Local pubs and restaurants were not a disappointment, but further afield in Georgeham and Braunton other good restaurants available. I defy anyone NOT to fall in love with North Devon, a lot of people already are, which would account for some excess traffic on the roads in Peak periods, so plan ahead! A great stay. Thank you.

The best house we have rented!
This is a really lovely house and I cannot imagine a better one in the whole of Croyde. It is the best house we have rented in terms of its location and garden. The grandchildren have loved it. They also enjoyed Peppa Pig's oven etc! Lovely bedrooms and we all slept well. Thank you for the flowers. We have loved this house!

Great family holiday by the sea, close to all amenities
Hills View is set in the centre of busy Croyde ( in Summer) with convenient access to the shop, post office, bakery, family pub , restaurant and surfing shops. The visiting Markets are just across the road and the beach is accessible via the footpath by the bakery ( 10 mins walk) or along the road up the hill ( parking available) although this is busy. The Cottage is well equipped and has everything you need to feel like a home for your stay, complete with reclining chairs and sofas in the lounge! We really enjoyed our stay, as did everyone else according to the guest book!

Having stayed at a property that was minus 4 stars two years ago
Having stayed at a property that was minus 4 stars two years ago, Croyde in general was the last place on the planet I wanted to visit, however my Grandson likes surfing so it was with trepidation that I booked with Ocean Cottages taking on the lease of Hills View who assured me that my fears would not be repeated. Oceans Cottages deserve full marks (20/10!) for the attention paid to me which can only be a reflection of the high standard that they have set themselves. Hills View is a highly recommend property. We shall certainly use Ocean Cottages again, and if available "Hills View". However, greater attention to detail on the part of Ocean Cottages to that of the Terms and Conditions is a must especially to the written English Language concerning the handover procedures.

centrally located in Croyde, easy access to both shops and beach
Hills View is centrally located in Croyde offering easy access to both the small shops and the beach. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable for six people with a modern, well equipped kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and drying area, living space and large bedrooms. There is a large enclosed garden and parking on site.

the beds comfortable and kitchen absolutely a pleasure to cook in
The location of the house is central to the village shops and bars and although very close did not experience any noise from visitors to the village. The house was lovely and clean, the beds comfortable and kitchen absolutely a pleasure to cook in. The best part of the house was the en suite, kitchen and lovely well kept garden, the worst bit was the attached shower on the bath was positioned so that you needed to bend over to wash your hair, however there was a full sized shower in the downstairs bedroom
