What a view, what a house!

For our family party, this house couldn't be better! Well equipped, clean and comfortable, we love coming back here every year. The view never fails to delight us, and we love the sociable layout of the house. We hope to be back next year!

Wonderful stay

We had a wonderful holiday at Luckenborough, and were so lucky with the weather. Took lovely early morning walks on the beach. The house was immaculate, very comfortable and very well equipped. The views are fabulous - such a good location.

Perfect stay!

Our family spent last week in lovely Croyde and wow what a week we had. Arrived to find one of the bedrooms was a double a should have been twin. Contacted Matilda the housekeeper who very promptly and easily resolved the situation. Thanks. Everything and more that we needed in the house. So much space for our large family. The games, puzzles and book shelf had everything we needed. Even managed a 3 hour game of Devon Monopoly! The hill to the house was a challenge but on the up side, it certainly burned off a few calories! What a superb view from the balcony. Perfect place to sit after a busy day. Thanks for a lovely stay. Clean, comfortable and would recommend staying at this lovely property.

A fabulous 5 bedroom house with fantastic views across Croyde Bay. Everything you could wish for in a holiday house. Walking distance of the pubs and restaurants in the village. 5 star!

Wonderful views over Croyde Bay

We booked Luckenborough as a base to celebrate a milestone birthday for one of the 14 members of our family. It was initially quite tricky to find a place big enough to accommodate our group, however Luckenborough offered ample space. The property is well equipped and has a nice family feel. The kitchen was modern and had all the appliances, crockery and utensils you could possibly need. The views from the property were absolutely amazing, but not surprising as the approach to the property was incredibly steep. Parking was good, and 4 cars easily fitted on the driveway. Luckenborough is walking distance to the local amenities as well as the beach. We would love to return, albeit when there isn't a storm, but even then it was a lovely place to stay and experience the elements.

We very much enjoyed our stay.

The house enjoys a spectacular view of the bay, is spacious and well appointed and sits in its own grounds on a grassy hillside. It was in immaculate condition when we arrived. We had a great time.

Wow what a view

This spacious house met all our needs, it was hard to find a property that had double beds in all rooms. Such a great location to the village and beach. Good workout climbing back up the drive. Recommend for a large family like ours

Amazing Views

Lovely week, best views of Croyde.... House was well equipped and furnished to a decent standard . As always Richard and the team at Ocean were on hand with any issues. We would definitely rebook.

As Fabulous as Ever

Loved staying here again. The view is superb, the layout works extremely well for our group of nine people, and we hope to return for a sixth visit next year.

Wonderful time! Great walks, surf, food and a ’first step’

Superb property, well equipped

Super property with the best view in the area! We have now stayed there four times, and hope to book for a fifth. It suits our three generations very well, with a kitchen well equipped for large opening onto the dining area and living room.

Plum Cox   Aug 2019

We had an incredible time here and we could not get over the wonderful view! Certainly, a summer we won't forget.

Fantastic weekend!

atching up with friends and relatives.  Leaving in glorious sun too.  Highly recommend Blue Groove in Croyde - new chef- fabulous, good buzz too!  Always sad to leave.  The Rock in Georgeham is excellent and the Kings Arms is good too.

Outstanding property with amazing views.

We had a most enjoyable Easter weekend at Luckenborough with three generations of our family. Making wonderful memories that I will treasure always. Only slight problem was using the hob as there were no instructions! Thoroughly recommended and hope to return.

Thank you for your lovely comments about your stay in Luckenborough. We are sorry to hear that you had trouble working the hob, we will source some instructions to ensure they are available in future! We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Just wonderful!
We had a brilliant stay at Luckenborough with a family get together to celebrate our lovely Mum's 90th birthday. We were a party of 9 adults and 3 children ranging from 13 months old to 90 years old. The house is really well equipped and well designed for large groups. There is plenty of space available both within the house and the surrounding grounds. Easy access to the beautiful beaches and the coffee shops in Croyde. Booking through Ocean Cottages was professional and easy and we had speedy, friendly support with a stuck window. Cannot recommend this house highly enough. We hope to be able to return again next year. Thank you Ocean Cottages!

Great pad and location...
Amber weather warning!! Sun, sea and snow. Sledging on the front garden was fun. Next time the north face of the garden - maybe!

Beautiful views, quiet spacious property.

Excellent place to stay
Luckenborough was the ideal base for our annual family weekend in Croyde. We have stayed in many places in Croyde and often looked across to Luckenborough, not realising it can be rented. We were 9 adults and all enjoy walking, cycling, surfing, and bodyboarding. All can be easily done from Luckenborough with the added delight of being able to have amazing views from the house whatever the weather! The drive is VERY steep so beware, the Sainsburys' driver coped!

Excellent property with excellent views
Rented for a stress free week away to write music with friends. What a fab place. We visit Croyde twice a year but this place capped off a fab week.

Great place for family weekend

What is not to like?!
Amazing views, great bedrooms, well designed and stocked kitchen, amazing views, loads of space for 10 adults to stay, amazing views, plenty of space around the dining room and in the lounge
Did I mention the amazing views?!
Storage for bikes and boards
Drive is very steep, but Mr Sainsburys managed it so not impossible!

Great place to enjoy a holiday
Stunning view, miles of beaches and surf. Make sure you take advantage of these and also the coastal walks!
Pat & Liz   Aug 2017
Lovely large modern home with stunning views

Luckenborough is a lovely property situated within a few minutes walk of Croyde centre and the beach. Very spacious with large window expanses looking right down into the bay. We were a party of 7 and had space to spare. Beach was lovely and the kids really enjoyed the surfing. The deckchair cinema was great fun and we really liked the Stoned pizzas! Definitely somewhere we would consider coming to again.
