Happy Eating!
Manor House pub does good Sunday carvery, Rock Inn, Georgeham also does lovely food. Tambapanni food truck does Sri Lankan curry meals in Croyde on Saturday evenings throughout the season. Happy eating!

Perfect Location!

Such a perfect location to explore beautiful beaches. Saunton sands was our favourite. Hired wetsuits and boards and braved the sea at Croyde Has the best food at The Rock Inn in Georgeham (dogs allowed in the bar and you can book tables in the bar). Ate well in The Thatch and Manor House. Great walks from your door, very muddy pathway along the stream to the right, but mainly just headed to the beaches. Boats from Ilfracombe will take you fishing and seal watching, back to have a beer outside in the last of the sunshine Fabulous holiday Very well equipped home. We will come back in the Summer.

Perfect house with a great location

Came here with three friends, had a great weekend! Perfect house with a great location. Did the coastal walk over to Putsborough beach. Amazing views. Would highly recommend Devon Extreme Sports, we all did their quad biking course and absolutely loved it.

Beautiful House in a Beautiful Location

Had a wonderful holiday this year in Croyde.  Beautiful house in a beautiful location with an amazing view.  We enjoyed activities such as Coasteering down at Baggy Point and Surfing.  A great thing to do is head to Barricane Beach in Woolacombe for a delicious Sri-Lankan Curry on the beach. We had a lovely time, thank you xx

Excellent accommodation and location.

Had a great week with our daughter, her boyfriend, our dog plus friends and their 3 year old daughter. Accommodation and location suited all with great access to Saunton and Woolacombe beaches. The Old Coastguards is a lovely property with nice large bedrooms and walking distance to the pubs of Croyde where took most of our meals. We did make use of the well equipped kitchen on one occasion and also the BBQ supplied. In all a great week.

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.
