Really good location albeit 10 minutes walk to the beach and not 5 as advertised. Spacious property, good internal layout, comfortable beds and excellent bathroom facilities. Utility room and provision of an outside shower together with comfortable outside space were all positives. Useful to have two car park spaces at the property. Would highly recommend this property if seeking a beach holiday in Croyde.
