This House is amazing
This house is amazing. I love the Hot Tub and it is a perfect and easy walk to the beach. Love the Surf and a perfect location to the Thatch.

lots of lovely restaurants within a 5 minute walk.
It was a magnificent holiday. My favourite part was the Hot Tub because after you get cold in the sea, you can have a shower and get all warm again in the Hot Tub. It is a a short and easy walk for the Beach and there are lots of lovely restaurants within a 5 minute walk.

pictures and narrative on the website simply don’t do justice
Most holiday home adverts tend to over- promise and under deliver. This one is the opposite in that the pictures and narrative on the website’s simply don’t do justice to this wonderful holiday home. The facilities are truly superb and above all this has to be the cleanest house I have ever rented. It can be a bit of a lottery when renting a holiday home in terms of cleanliness but this house is truly a credit to its owners and especially to the housekeeper. It was spotless in every regard. All of the equipment that you could ever possibly need is there (and more) and it all works!!. Just brilliant. Then there’s the lovey location and surrounding areas. Again wonderful. I’m tempted not to say too much about this superb house so that not too many people will rent it and it will be easier for me to rent it again in the future – but that would be unfair and against the spirit of user reviews– Instead I have to be honest and give credit where it is due ---- this is an excellent holiday home – we will be back as soon as we can – go stay here – you won't be disappointed. Simply wonderful.!!

all the amenities a family could require and more
What a fantastic house! We spent a lovely week at Longboards, it has all the amenities a family could require and more; a fully equipped kitchen with underfloor heating, a master en suite with dressing area, all clean and spotless throughout. A short stroll to the beach for surfing and the village close by. Stunning scenery for running, and of course, the hot tub! Have already booked for next year...its a 10 from us!
Phil   Jun 2015
Wonderful family holiday in an amazing house
A great family holiday home which we shared with our friends. Everything that you require is there. We had taken our own body boards and windbreak but if we had known that the house had these we would have left ours at home so a bit more information would be helpful. We would book this house again, We all loved the hot tub. My only negative points would be that the master bedroom needed a mirror and dressing table as you couldn't dry your hair in there and I would recommend a nice garden table and chairs as the one there is not very comfortable. The weather was rubbish but we had a wonderful holiday and would love to return sometime to this great house in North Devon.

Management comment
From The Ocean Cottages Team: We are so pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful holiday and that you would love to return to Longboards. We will pass your comments regarding the bedroom and garden furniture onto the owners for their consideration. We look forward to welcoming you back to Ocean Cottages.
Very comfortable, spacious, contemporary property.
Very comfortable, spacious, contemporary property. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen with good white china etc. Large table was great. Leather block seating suited the property but was a bit low down for the 80 year olds in our family party! The Devon cream tea (scones and clotted cream) was a nice welcome touch and we appreciated Matilda the housekeeper calling round the morning after our arrival to check all was ok. Great location very close to the path down to the beach and the road into the village.

The hot tub was an added bonus and enjoyed by all.
Had a fantastic week in a fantastic house. The house is very well equipped with room for everyone. The hot tub was an added bonus and enjoyed by all. The beach and village are both within easy walking distance. My only criticism would be the height of the sofa ( very comfy but a little too low) and the garden furniture - not enjoyable sitting on cheap pub garden benches.

Luxurious and Well Appointed House in Amazing Location
We have rented many houses for our family holidays but this is far and beyond the best we have found. There is a luxurious quality feel about the house which is both well thought out and comfortable. The location is brilliant with access a path so close you can be on at the beach in a few minutes. The house has a double shower wet room which you access from the back garden making it really easy to wash the beach off and then jump into the amazing Jacuzzi! My family and I just can't recommend Longboards enough - we will most certainly be booking again.

beautifully furnished and is immaculate.
This house is fantastic. It has everything you need, is beautifully furnished and is immaculate. We even had welcoming scones, jam and clotted cream waiting for us! There were 5 of us and we all had a wonderful time. We weren't so good at the surfing - it is way harder than it looks - but it was worth it just to come back to the gorgeous hot tub. Pure bliss! The beaches are great and only 10 minute walk down a track. Would definitely come back to stay here xxx

Everything you need within a 5/10 minute walk.
Beautiful place to stay and just as beautiful scenery. Would recommend the baggy point hike along the coast. Everything you need within a 5/10 minute walk. Everyone in the area was really friendly, especially at The Thatch. Good food, service and vibe. Great lighting around the house, love the decor and truly felt at home. Will definitely be returning.

Excellent location and facilities, helpful staff
Stayed here for a week with family in August. Perfect space for us, good accommodation just a walk from the beach or the village. The hot tub and outdoor dining area were excellent. When the weather was not so good and we spent time in the house, there was enough space downstairs for children to play. Would definitely like to return.

3rd year at Longboards

We've had another fantastic week at Longboards this summer - 3 years in a row! It is such a fantastically well designed and well located house and has worked well for us with other adult friends, another family with young kids, and with extended family (not all at same time!). We love the overall layout, the barbecue and hot tub, the outdoor shower, free kids wetsuits and body boards and most importantly the ability to walk onto beach in less than 10 minutes even with small children. We can pop to and from multiple times a day which is invaluable.

Great fun
We booked both Longboards and Seascape for a large family gathering to celebrate a special birthday. Even though the weather was changeable we had great fun in the sea then warmed up in the hot tub afterwards. Our gazebo even fitted outside for al fresco dinning in the rain! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Just returned from a long weekend at Longboards. What a gem of a find. It was to celebrate a special birthday for me and booked as a surprise by my family. I could not of asked for more. This is a fantastic house,very well equipped with extra added touches. The scones ,jam and cream on arrival were very much appreciated. Everything was so crisp,clean and tidy. Didn't get opportunity to meet Matilda but she does a absolutely fantastic job. The hot tub was the Icing on the cake and was well used over our stay. As the weather was so good was able to use the BBQ and eat el fresco too. Looking forward for another stay.

Lovely house, great location

We stayed for a week 1st week of September. The location of the house is perfect as you can walk to the beach in around 10 mins and into the village in about 2 mins which is great for the Pub!! The house is modern, clean and well equipped and even has three surf boards you can use. We surfed everyday and having the hot showers in a special room you can access from outside was ideal as was the hot tub for discussing who had the best waves. The BBQ is good quality and we enjoyed it on a couple of evenings. Croyde is lovely and the house is ideal for walking to Baggy Point etc. Parking was easy with a space on the drive and two outside on the road. Overall a great visit and we hope to book again to go next year.

A great holiday.

Longboards lived up to all our expectations and more. It is a comfortable spacious house and equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. The close proximity to the beach was a bonus, particularly as access is via a footpath ( approx 10 mins with little children) so no need to walk on the busy road through the village. The hot tub was very well used, as were the surf boards and children's wet suits. All in all a wonderful family holiday, so thank you.
