Home House - it literally felt like 'home' for all our family, from Grandparents to teenagers.

We are beyond impressed with Home House - everything 'works' with a wonderful flow - the quality and taste of the decor and furnishings made this a special place. It felt super-homely and we loved spending time in the garden - just sitting and chatting and eating in this Mediterranean-style space. Out family ranged from 86 to 17 - its was loved by all! Thank you.

Thank you for a magical holiday at Home House in Croyde, Devon. We had such a wonderful time and the cottage was a dream.

Ruth Anne Adams   Oct 2021
Highly recommend this holiday home

We loved our stay at Home House - there was everything there that we needed for all weathers. Cottage has loads of character and plenty of space. We had small children in our party and they also loved it Would definitely recommend it. The ONLY downside is the carpark/driveway - you cannot drive a large wide car up as it is too narrow, so parking can be a problem.

Home House is really lovely and comfortable house

We had a lovely week at Home House. It is very nicely decorated, well equipped, spacious, comfortable beds, lovely sunny court yard garden, and perfect location for the centre of pretty Croyde. Croyde beach can get quite busy for surfers so we visited Saunton sands a couple of times and Putsborough beach, both lovely and easy to drive and park. We had a stunning walk along the coastal path to Putsborough beach and then onto Georgeham for lunch and then short walk back to Croyde. the staff at Ocean Cottages are fantastic and really helpful.

Thank you we had a brilliant time!

As wonderful as ever!!!

Another wonderful 10 days in Croyde, and despite the best efforts of the various storms nothing could spoil it. Home House was superb as always, the support from both Matilda and the office was always there when needed. Roll on next year (if not sooner...)

Homely, cosy and comfortable

Spent a wonderful time with our family in this gorgeous house, all of us together. Home House cottage was the ideal place for all of us, Grandma and Grandpa mums, dad's and grandchildren having quality time together. The house was in an ideal location in the centre, within easy reach to the beautiful beaches, walks and lovely places to eat. The house had everything you could possibly need, it was warm and cosy with two log fires and a wonderfully equipped kitchen. We were welcomed with Devon scones jam and cream. Thank you for our wonderful holiday.

A comfortable, spacious and well equipped house.
Home house is a lovely property in Croyde. It is really close to the village. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a good utility room and a useful outside shower for washing wetsuits. Also there are plenty of bathrooms which is great for a large family. The beds are really comfortable too.

Great Location for family gathering
Rented this cottage for a family gathering. Great open plan layout downstairs for entertaining, plenty of room and good flow. Beds comfortable and bathrooms clean. Its location is great if you don't want to have to drive to pubs and restaurants. Driveway is narrow, but ample parking at the end of it. Fab time and thoroughly recommended.

Fantastic well situated cottage.

This cottage is fantastic! Well equipped and well situated in the heart of Croyde with a 5-10 minute walk from the beach. We were three generations and the holiday area was enjoyed by us all. We will all definitely return here!

Fantastic cottage, with lots of space and original features.
I booked Home House for a family gathering/weekend in May 2018 and wasn't disappointed. Fantastic cottage, with lots of space and original features. Great location in Croyde village. We particularly like the games room and the delicious Devonshire scones, clotted cream and jam on arrival, such a nice touch!
Beverley   May 2018

Our group of 8 enjoyed 3 nights at home house. 2 lovely log burners, 5 well appointed bedrooms 4 being en suite. Full of charm, lovely spacious living with great kitchen. Even a wine fridge! Car park to rear. Couldn't have been better!

The bedrooms were comfortable with decent bedding and towels
Home House was a great location for our annual extended family holiday. It was within walking distance of the beach at Croyde and the towns other attractions and coastal path walks. The bedrooms were comfortable with decent bedding and towels and enough storage for our clothes and belongings. The kitchen was well stocked but would benefit from a few more empty cupboards for food storage, we generally cooked family meals and didn't eat out much so had a lot of food to store. The dining room was great for large family meal times around the table though. The technology all worked well too! The small games room was great for the children to play in away from parents and the big living room comfy for family film night. Whenever I contacted the office about the booking I received a speedy and helpful response from the staff there. The house keeper was also great and very helpful when we needed to contact her during our stay and was able to resolve a couple of small problems promptly.

Made good use of the log burner for chilly evenings.
Great house, plenty of room for large group of people. Good village location, pubs and amenities all close by. Made good use of the log burner for chilly evenings. We were able to enjoy the outside space as we had good weather too. Just a couple of things: could have done with more pint glasses please, also cooker instructions would have been useful.

A lovely cottage perfect for a big family/ friends get away
The cottage was thoughtfully renovated with a bathroom for each room which was great as our party was three families. It had all the luxury touches and the cream tea which was left was fantastic. The only negative points where there was no tea pot.

Ocean Cottages Response: We are so pleased to hear that you loved the property and the finishing touches. We apologise for the lack of tea pot, we have notified the housekeeper who will be popping one at the property as soon as possible.
The cottage was superb and perfect for what we needed.

Great location. Lovely house, ideal for a family get together. Tastefully decorated.We would stay again.

Absolutely stunning - a dream stay
I booked Home House for a long weekend and stayed here with a group of friends. We were all so bewildered by the quality of the accommodation and the facilities that were provided including a great BBQ, a stone oven, a coffee machine (tea and coffee provided), board games, a selection of DVDs, and washing utilities. There is nothing in the description to say this house is real luxury living - but that it was. I recommend anyone looking for a house situated near to the beach, sleeping 6 or more, to stay here. We were all sad to leave.

village location and landmark property presented at the highest level
Having rented a a good number of properties in and around Croyde Village this is one of the best. Great village location and landmark property presented at the highest level A Landmark property in the centre of the village which allows you to walk to all pubs, beaches and ice cream shops. Plenty of private parking and great out door space in the rear court yard. Ticks all the boxes
Colin Jones   Sep 2014
A wonderful house in Croyde with easy access to everything you need
A great family holiday in this spacious house that was full of character, 2 sitting rooms made it ideal for the children. Croyde is a great place for a family holiday with something for everyone. It is a safe place to be and you can walk everywhere. We had fantastic weather and the courtyard was sheltered and hot throughout the day, we had every meal outside.
