Home from Home!
What a fantastic home from home! We have loved staying here and
wish we'd had longer...hopefully we'll be back again soon!
The Coles Family
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
Lovely week at Longboards!
We had a lovely week at Longboards. House was great, had
everything we wanted. Fantastic location and we had lots of
sunshine. Thank you very much, the hot tub was amazing! We all had
a lovely holiday here in Croyde and very much enjoyed staying at
Longboards. Hope to comeback soon and cant wait to visit again.

The Hastings family
2nd time at Longboards, love it!! Beautiful house and lovely hot
tub. Lovely relaxing week - loved the beach and hot tub - many
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.
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. Loved Croyde and will come again.
Had a great time on holiday staying at Longboards...
We all had a great time trying surfing for the first time ever
and very much enjoyed using the hot tub after being in the freezing
Great location, fabulous accommodation, village great and beaches. Happy days!
Fantastic house in a great location!
Croyde is a little gem & the surfing is great!
The hot tub was amazing. The walk to the beach was so short. The
restaurants are amazing. Especially liked Billy Budds. It is a
pleasure to stay here.
Lovely clean house
Fantastic week for Jonah's (6 months) first family week holiday!
Lovely clean house with everything needed. Loved having the hot
tub. We were very lucky with perfect weather. Sorting out dates to
come back next year to Croyde & Longboards!
Family holiday. Fantastic house, brilliant accommodation, good
size rooms comfortable in every aspect Lovely bathrooms great hot

village with nice pubs the thatch being 5 minutes walk from the
cottage Woolacombe Ilfracombe short drive away and Saunton sands
beach just up the road well worth a visit And we got the weather
all in all great house you must try guarantee you will not regret
Had a wonderful week...
Lovely house & had a nice time in the hot tub. Love the blue
LED in bathroom, house is lovely. All in all great house, perfectly
designed with space & layout. Good location, comfortable.
Recommend The Thatch pub for meals.
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.
More than you could wish for!
My husband & daughters surprised me with a 6oth birthday

We all had a fantastic time
Thank you for a lovely stay - we all had a fantastic time and appreciated how well equipped with whole place was inc the outdoor shower / wet room which was much appreciated.
Great location and accomodation
Second time around with a family group with 2 infants and 2 children, 2 and 5. Nice walks to beach and village, found more play areas this time and the Cascades swim pool at the Parkdean resort.
Great accomodation as ever and extremely helpful housekeeper and team at Ocean Cottages.
Lovely house, very comfortable and the hot tub has been great. We have been blessed with amazing weather all week. Once again another great holiday in lovely Croyde!
Pollock & Williams Families
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!
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.

A Wonderful House
Family and very old friends gathered. A wonderful house which was filled with love and laughter. Long beach walks, good food and wine enjoyed. Here's to the next time!
What an amazing house. Have come to Croyde now many times and always stay in the Ocean Cottages homes and as always the housekeeper has them spotless. Thank you for everything.
Amazing - Will definitely return next year
Family gathering to celebrate a birthday! Amazing house and location. Loved our walks to the beach. So lucky with the weather, cold and crisp but fab for the hot tub. So enjoyed our long weekend. Will definitely return next year.
Third Visit! Superb as ever. Weather was great, all went in the sea, even better when you return to the hot tub!

Amazing weekend with friends, brilliantly equipped and have to mention the hot tub - thank you
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.
House wonderful everything we could wish for and more.

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
Fab place, hot tub, brilliant time, surfing and giggles
Awesome weekend. Fab place, hot tub, brilliant time, surfing and giggles. Thank you

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!!.
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.!!
A fantastic time in a lovely property. Thank you! Until next time...
Awesome week. A fantastic time in a lovely property. Thank you! Until next time...

We have enjoyed a wonderful weekend in a fabulous house. Very well equipped, a great location and an amazing hot tub. Will definitely be recommending to all of our friends! Thank you.
It was a magnificent holiday! My favourite part was the hot tub as after you get cold in the sea you can have a shower and then get all warm again in the hot tub. It is a short and easy walk to the beach and there are lots of lovely restaurants nearby.
