Fantastic holiday once again!
Despite these strange times, our holiday was as fabulous as
ever. This was our third time to Croyde and third time to
'Offshore' - we didn't wish to stay anywhere else. Lovely,
comfortable accommodation close to the shops and goldens sands of
Croyde Bay. With a hot tub for relaxation after a body boarding
session. It doesn't get better. Thank you, again!
As fabulous as always
Once again another fantastic break in a beautiful property close
to one of the best beaches in the UK - we are never disappointed
when we return here. The property is beautiful and meticulously
presented - with the bonus of a chocolate cake too! Thank you to
everyone at Ocean Cottages
Our family (5 adults & 1 child) stayed at Offshore for a
week In September 2019. We had a really lovely week. The cottage is
absolutely lovely, Perfect for adults & children. It has
everything & more that you need in a holiday home. The extra
touches like the beach trolley & wind break were very useful.
The hot tub was lovely, nice enclosed back garden for children to
play. The location is perfect 10-15 minutes walk to Croyde beach.
About 5 minutes drive to Saunton & about a 20 minute drive to
Woolacombe. The south west coast path is very close to the cottage.
Matilda the house keeper was extremely helpful. We would definitely
book Offshore again. Thankyou Ocean Cottages.
Beautiful holiday home from home!
Another superb fortnight at Offshore in Croyde. The cottage is
lovely and very well equipped. The owners kindly leave welcome
treats which are very well received after a long car journey -
thank you! The hot tub is also very popular with our family! The
location of Offshore could not be better. It is a few minutes walk
from glorious Croyde beach and a ten minute walk in the other
direction takes you to all the pubs, bistros and shops Croyde has
to offer. We love it and hope to return for a third holiday!
Lovely holiday let with hot tub
Beautifully furnished holiday let with wonderful hot tub in the garden. Spacious with an open plan kitchen, dining area and living room. Made it very sociable. Lovely welcome pack of chocolate cake - a thoughtful touch. Close to fantastic Croyde beach, paradise for surfers and body boarders alike. Plenty good pubs and restaurants within a ten minute walk. Enjoyed every minute of our holiday and will almost certainly return.
Lovely accommodation with everything you need and more. Loved the huge chocolate cake - lovely to walk into.
The house was spacious and comfortable and plenty of room/seating for us all.
We travelled as two families and included a 19 year old and two 16 year olds.
The outside area was great too - especially the hot tub, lovely to relax in the early mornings and evenings.
A lovely 10 minute countryside stroll to the beach and the hot outside shower was perfect too after a day body boarding.
We have been to Croyde for many years and this is by far the best accommodation we have stayed in.
A great home away from home
Our third visit to Offshore. We find it a well presented house, close to amenities and the children are able to walk to the beach without traffic. The hot tub is the icing on the cake after a day of activities.
Brilliant location, fabulously well equipped and perfect family holiday house
Not much to add to above comment. Lovely touch leaving the welcome cake - kids loved it.
House was immaculate, well equipped and was the best rental cottage we’ve stayed in Croyde over the last ten years.
We have been to Offshore many times and keep coming back for more - great location, lovely open plan house, great suntrap patio...just love it
lovely relaxing holiday in such a stunning part of the world.
Thank you for a lovely relaxing holiday in such a stunning part of the world.
Sad to be leaving this beautiful house, but glad to be taking so many happy family memories with us.
A lovely house with great facilities and a perfect location.

Chloe & Amanda
Great house - very clean, suitable for all ages and in a prime location.
Spent the week here with family and a 9 month old baby and found the facilities excellent to cater for all of us.
We had perfect weather considering the time of year which allowed us all to enjoy some time in the lovely garden (hot tub fab!)
Nice to be only a short walk to the beach and into the village to enjoy a cold beer or two!
Thank you for a lovely stay
The Wells Family
The Bungalow is gorgeous and every detail has been thought about.
We have just returned from this bungalow. Myself and my Husband, my sister in law my their Parents (In their 70's) and our two Sons, one 7 who is Autistic and the other almost 4. The Bungalow is gorgeous and every detail has been thought about. My Mum in Law is disabled and this is why we chose this place. We all had plenty of space but by all being in the one place together it meant myself and my sister in Law could help with caring for her and giving Dad a break. The Hot Tub was also fab. We arrived to find a chocolate cake and bottle of bubbly!! Which were really lovely touches and made it all the more special. Anna (the owner) had to be called away so Matilda was our house keeper and although we missed her visit we knew she had called round and we did see her on the Friday before we left. Thankyou for looking after us
The Bungalow is in an ideal location, we felt close enough to amenities and towns like, Braunton, Barnstaple and Ilfracombe yet away from it all too. The walk from the Bungalow to the Beach is only 5 minutes walk at a steady pace and we discovered suitable for wheelchairs. The Beach itself is gorgeous and the children loved playing on the dunes even in the wind and rain!
My Husband and his Dad ate in the The Thatch one lunchtime after a walk and said the food was amazing but pricey, though the portions were huge. We all ate at Squires Fish Restaurant in Braunton and would recommend this too. Also a brilliant soft play centre in Barnstaple called Funderzone which our boys enjoyed. All in all we have enjoyed a wonderful week together and made some amazing memories.
Don't want to go home!!!
we have had such a great holiday in a fantastic location. Offshore has been a pleasure to stay in.
Thank you - hope to be back

Really clean and modern, great facilities (Hot tub etc.) very spacious
I stayed at Offshore with some friends at the start of September. The cottage is fantastic. Really clean and modern, great facilities (Hot tub etc.) and is very spacious. The location is great, only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the same to the nearest pub in the village.
We had the opportunity to meet the owners who were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable. Thoroughly recommended.
Garden is a sun trap. Perfect for little ones,
Had a brilliant holiday at Offshore. Walk to the beach, walk to a number of pubs, walk to the shops. Garden is a sun trap. Perfect for little ones, all on one floor - there was even some toys for them to play with and a high chair. Couldn't ask for more.
Really nice property within a 5 min walk of beach and village.

we couldn't have asked for more.
We have had a fabulous time. Came for a family party - the house has been brilliant for all generations, we couldn't have asked for more.
Swimming at Croyde and walking out of the sea without needing towels, so so warm and such a short walk to the beach.
An occasion for the memory bank. It has been fantastic, a wonderful time.
Definitely will be back.

It was well located being both close to the beach
We had a brilliant holiday in the Offshore cottage. It was well located being both close to the beach and only a few minutes walk from the village store. The cottage was very well equipped which was perfect for our family and young baby. The owners were very helpful when we had a problem with one of the door locks and they sorted out the problem on the same day.
hot tub to rest our weary legs after walking to Woolacombe and back!
Our second visit to Offshore. Fabulous week - sun, sea, surf and the hot tub to rest our weary legs after walking to Woolacombe and back!
Spotlessly clean, close to beach with all day sunshine in garden
Spotlessly clean and contemporary, comfortable bungalow. Well positioned garden for all day sunshine and lovely hot tub. Short walk to the beach and village amenities. Wonderful for family holidays. Would love to stay here again.

Wow - what a great place. We had a great stay celebrating a 40th birthday. Thanks for the extra touches. Definitely a good place for a family of 7 with a wheelchair user.
Perfectly set up for a surfing holiday!
With less than 10minutes walk to the fabulous beach at Croyde, Offshore is well thought out for those who wish to take time in chasing the waves, building sandcastles, exploring the stunning coastline and then returning to relax in comfort. With an exterior hot shower and a welcome hot tub, all eight of us happily spent time boogie-boarding in October half-term with the promise of a warm up at the end of each session. The house is well kitted out with lovely bright clean bathrooms and underfloor heating. The welcome cake and bubbly were very much appreciated. A nice touch that will tempt us back next year!
Perfect place and absolutely awesome house.
Perfect place and absolutely awesome house. The cake and champagne were a lovely touch. Although the weather was not perfect, it did not stop us having a great time and enjoying the hot tub. We had a problem one day with the hot water and everyone went out of there way to make sure that this was sorted very quickly for us. There is everything you need in the house, nothing spared. Deposit paid back very promptly. Would definitely go back again.
A perfect bungalow and excellent for wheelchair users.
We have enjoyed a wonderful week here in Offshore. A perfect bungalow and excellent for wheelchair users. The only downside was the lack of disabled access to and from the property and into the hot tub. But I’m sure we will book to come back. Fabulous memories made and this home helped us all enjoy a week together as a family. Thank you so much for the cake and champagne too…Fabulous!
We would definitely come again next year!
Thank you for a great week. The house is fantastic and we couldn’t have felt more welcome. We had a great time with frequent visits to the Thatch which is just down the road and a great meal at The Rock in Georgeham. We would definitely come again next year!
The house is fantastic!
Offshore was every bit as perfect as last time!

A beautiful home from home
the hot tub soothed away our achy muscles from days walking
I know it would have to take something special to survive a week with the in-laws! But I am writing this on our last day and we all have had the most memorable week. The bungalow has been fantastic and the fizz and cake was just what was needed after a 4 hour drive; the hot tub soothed away our achey muscles from days walking in the sunshine. The 10 of us loved it, thank you.
A memorable week

My Mother is in a wheelchair & inside the house was great for her
Excellent accommodation!! We have been to Croyde for many many years and this tops all accommodation - the hot tub was wonderful after surfing. The brownies and beautiful flowers and champagne were another bonus - plus a week of glorious sunshine - just a perfect week. Many thanks. My Mother is in a wheelchair & inside the house was great for her - especially the wet room - just brilliant.

We have had a lovely time in one of our favourite holiday destinations.

Lovely house with great facilities and everything you need with a five year and two year old to entertain. We will be back.

Perfect holiday home in Croyde - was absolute heaven!
Perfect holiday home in Croyde - was absolute heaven! We felt instantly at home with everything we needed for a relaxing week. House is beautifully decorated and comfortable - there is even under floor heating! The wi-fi was really good and we managed to download lots of movies and TV during our stay with no issues. The hot tub was a massive plus and lovely after a long, cold walk on the beach. Kitchen has everything you need to cook and I even did some baking while we were there, however the local pub the Thatch is only five minutes walk and has great food. The house is right by the beach (5 mins walk) but if you have a car there are loads of other beach walks nearby to keep you occupied. I also went riding on the beach through the local stables and would thoroughly recommend it. We had no issues getting into the house on Friday night - was all very easy. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
Amazing property superb location excellent extra touches

This property is truly excellent.
This property is truly excellent. It is beautifully appointed in a minimalist but arty fashion. It has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. The property has clearly been cleverly designed from scratch, as a holiday let.The main living area has a really nice feel about it.....a great place to chill out after being on the beach, especially with the Bose sound system ! It is very conveniently located for the beach, shops and pubs. We had a brilliant stay.Warmly recommended.
Been to Croyde before but not in anything as luxurious as this property
Been to Croyde before but not in anything as luxurious as this property, more expensive than we've normally paid, but the decor, facilities and of course tub made it worthwhile. A warm welcome with 'welcome gifts' and a very brief visit by owner to check everything was OK (it was). It was a real treat having one bathroom to every bedroom. Layout of living area and kitchen is fab. especially when you have french doors open. It was lovely to be able to walk straight to beach, especially for sunset. Great house.
13th may 2013
You give bungalows a better name, such a lovely home from home.
You give bungalows a better name, such a lovely home from home. There is nothing we would change. All in all a wonderful place and location for a birthday weekend. Champagne gratefully received and we couldn't have got more use out of the hot tub if we had tried. We will definitely be back.
The location of the property is ideal for surfers
I visited the area on a golfing weekend with 3 friends and it was nice to return to Offshore to relax after a long day on the course. The location of the property is ideal for surfers or golfers alike with the proximity to the beach and a number of very good golf courses an added bonus also with only a short walk to all of the nearby amenities it was a lovely weekend.
The standard of accommodation was second to none and the hot tub was a lovely bonus.
I would recommend Offshore to anyone wanting a long or short break in the area.
Offshore 29th March 2013
very well equipped and is tastefully furnished to the highest standards
The property is very well equipped and is tastefully furnished to the highest standards. It could not be faulted in any way. Its location within walking distance of the local shop and pub is a major plus.
Everything had been thought of and the hot tub came as a delight after a wet day on the golf course, as did the tumble drier! The beds were very comfortable and I particularly liked the under floor heating throughout the property. The kitchen and eating areas are delightful.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation to family or friends.
A five star rating........easily!
Offshore 18th March 2013
Very convenient for the Saunton golf club
Many thanks you have done a super job in here. Very convenient for the Saunton golf club and we will be recommending it to our friends, but not all as it is far too nice for them, but most of them.
17th March 2013
The hot tub was really fun.
Thank you so much for letting us stay here, it was great. The house is looking really good both on the inside and the outside. The hot tub was also really fun.
5th January 2013
wetsuits can be cleaned with outdoor hot shower
With its great location and superb interior the offshore made our simple surfing trip a dream. With champagne on arrival there really was no end to the little touches the owners had thought of. It has ample parking, we got three cars in the drive and another car on the road.
The kitchen is great and open plan with the dinning room and sitting room offering a great social feel in the evenings, hot tub was great clean and fully working. Surfing wise this place works great, wetsuits can be cleaned with outdoor hot shower and plenty of room in the back garden for all you surf boards. The back garden is locked on a coded gate so very safe.
All the beds are fantastic, and this place has so many bathrooms there no chance of queuing for the loo! Also the rainforest shower in the wetroom is second to none.
Hope you guys enjoy this place, would recommend to anyone.
Offshore 11th January 2013
Great house - underfloor heating and fire ensured we had a cosy break
Great house - underfloor heating and fire ensured we had a cosy break and was great to come back to after a new years surf. Hot tub was brilliant for star gazing too.

The house was beautiful - spotlessly clean, top of the range facilities
The house was beautiful - spotlessly clean, top of the range facilties and the welcoming touches were particularly nice. Every room was well furnished, comfortable and stylish. The patio and hot tub were great! This place has everything you need for a first class relaxing holiday.
It's only a 10 min walk from the beach, 5 min walk to the town yet set in a peaceful location. A great base for exploring north devon. We would recommend!
