Thank you so much for a wonderful stay last week. There were 10
of us staying at the property, which included 4 children, 2 grand
parents and 4 parents. Perfect location, great size rooms and
topped off with the hot tub. We loved every minute of it, so thank
you. We'll defo be back :)
We had the wow factor when we first walked in. We had everything
and more that we needed. So peaceful and the beach was very easily
accessible so much so we were there every evening for the sunset.
Loved it so much we have booked again for next year. X
Pebbles Rest is a lovely, modern cottage with all the amenities
that you need. It is in a perfect location, close to the village
centre and an easy walk to the beach. The enclosed garden was great
for our dogs and had lovely, open views over the village and
countryside beyond. Croyde itself has a few pubs, shops & the
most delicious tea rooms and is set between Woolacombe &
Saunton which both have fabulous, huge beaches and are within
walking distance. We loved our holiday here and will definitely
Superb property in a truly wonderful location
Would highly recommend Pebbles Rest for a wonderful holiday
stay. Spotlessly clean, well equiped and very comfortable. Quiet
location with everything you need in the centre. We had fish and
chips from the campsite opposite - they were delicious. Wonderful
pizza from Stoned outdoor pizza oven & a delightful cream tea
from Blue Groove is of course daily ice cream from Aunt Sally's.
Sunsets, surfing. Walks & hours on the beach - perfect holiday
in every way - 5 star
A perfect place to relax and unwind
This was our second stay at Pebbles Rest and we had a wonderful,
relaxing time! We felt very safe, despite the current COVID-19
pandemic. The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped for self
catering, with plenty of crockery, pans and large dishes for
cooking family meals. The second fridge freezer is so useful,
meaning less time shopping and more time at the beach or in the
lovely hot tub! During our stay, we walked to both Staunton Sands
and Puttsborough beaches and the views were absolutely
breathtaking! Great house and lovely, thoughtful owners - it's a
fabulous place to stay!
Great place to stay - house and location!
The team at Ocean Cottages were super helpful in finding us a
place to stay at the very last minute when Covid halted our plans
for a trip to the North of England. Without delay or fuss we
arrived at Pebbles Rest less than 48 hours after booking! And what
a lovely place to stay - the location was excellent, the house was
fab, and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dogs. The
surrounding beaches are all amazing. The weather was mixed but the
house was so comfortable we were happy to sit out the rain, reading
books and gazing over the surrounding hills. Thanks Ocean Cottages

Aperfect locatin for the fantastic beach walks and village

A lovely week here!
We enjoyed a lovely week here, despite storm Denis. We managed
to dodge the rain and get out and enjoy local walks and pubs.
Pebbles Rest was a perfect property for two families to get
together and have fun, the hot tub was very popular and so were the
puzzles. We would all love to come back again and perhaps order
additional sunshine! Recommend the Thatch, the Stores, Billy Buds,
the Manor House, also the walk on (page 126 of "secret
beaches" in the basket on the dresser)

lovely relaxing time in Pebbles Rest which was perfect for our
family and there was plenty of room for us all. The hot tub was a
great hit with us all. Weve had lovely walks along the beach and to
Baggy Point, and great times at the Thatch, Blue Groove and the
Recommend a vist to Kings Alms and The Rock Inn at Georgeham for
Younger memebers of the fmaily ewnjoyed time in the sea surfing
on the big waves!
Hopefully will return again soon!

no complaints! Great place for both our families to get
together and perfect location. Hopefully be back again
The Smiths and Cummings
Lovely place to stay
This was a lovely house in a perfect location. Very clean and
well presented with a lovely view over the valley. Had every
amenity you needed in the cupboards, comfortable furnishings and
really enjoyed the hot tub! I've never been to Croyde before and it
was a town with everything you needed without commercialism. A
couple of pubs, places to eat, a deli, a post office, ice cream
parlour, takeaway pizza, and a couple of surfy gift shops. There
was also a craft market on twice while we were there ?Saturday and
Wednesday. We took our dogs and the beaches were dog friendly
(except Croyde Bay) and amazingly clean. We walked for hours in the
surf and sand dunes.
We had a wonderful stay in Pebbles Rest for the second year
running! 3 generations of our family! Great facilities, great
location. Lots of evening spent on the beach watching the sunset as
it's such an easy walk down. We will definately be back.
Lovely home plenty of space. In a good location Hot tub is
always a welcome bonus Always enjoy Croyde and this home did not
Thank you for a lovely stay at Pebbles Rest!
We found the house to be very comfortable & spacious. The
hot tub was a hit! It was perfect for all our needs! We
were extremely greatful for the lovely treat of milk, biscuits
& cake on arrival! We had a fantastic time in Croyde -
the beach walks, the local park and shops were perfect for all 3
generations of our family group. We also had a lovely day
hir9ing bikes and cycling part of the Tarka trail from Braunton to
Instow (and back). We are sad to have to go home and would
love to come back!
Pebbles Rest was a great place for us to stay as a family of 11.
It was comfortable,spacious, very well equipped, in a great
location and the hot tub was enjoyed by all.
A lovely family house - great for a get together!
Ideal location for surfing and enjoying the local pub. Thank you
for a memorable stay!
We had a fantastic time at Pebbles Rest!
The hot tub was brilliant! Thank you for letting us live here. I
liked the monopoly game. All the games were fantastic. We have
comfy beds and a lovely view. Thankyou for the nice cake and
We have all had an amazing week at Pebbles Rest!
3 generations of family came to celebrate a special birthday and have had a fantastic time.
The house had everything we needed for a relaxing time. A short walk to the beach and had lots of laughs over the dunes.
The boys tried surfing at Croyde beach, which was mostly successful! We did not need to call the RNLI over! Hope to visit again soon! Thank you.
The M Family
We have just had the most AMAZING 2 weeks here at Pebbles Rest!
We were here to celebrate our wedding on the 25th with our children. family and friends. The sun shone and we will never forget making my vows in Downend Field. Our 3 kids and us are now hooked on surfing and the bodyboards stayed at the cottage. The office and owners have been amazing - replacing a broken kettle and providing batteries. Thank you so much and I am sure we will be back - all very sad to be heading home but we've memories to last a lifetime.
Rachel and family
Had a lovely family holiday with 3 generations!
Very thoughtful gesture to leave baby/children's toys and the games which were very well used!
Also, very grateful for the milk, chocolate cake etc which was a surprise welcome gift.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay with a good location for the beach and local amenities in Croyde.
Fludes, Lycett and Exon Families
Beautifully presented house.
Great location. Modern, clean and well equipped. Hot tub was fantastic, and outdoor shower was good after a day at the beach.
Highly recommend this house.
Only negative is that it is quite noisy at night when trying to sleep due to close proximity to centre of Croyde and main road.
AGENCY COMMENTS: Thank you very much for the glowing review, we are so pleased to hear that you recommend it so highly! We have never received any comments regarding the traffic noise before, and are therefore surprised to read your comments. Thankfully we have been treated to some wonderful weather in that last few months, and as a result, I imagine the majority of the windows were open during the night. We do apologise if this caused you an issue. As you know the property is set back from the road with an access lane between the property and the main thoroughfare.
Had a fabulous holiday at Pebbles Rest
A well equipped, spacious and welcoming retreat. Perfect spot to enjoy days surfing and walking an evenings out at the various pubs and restaurants, without needing the car!! Friends and older family members coming and going on visits have made this a holiday with a party feel. Many thanks!
This was our second fantastic stay at Pebbles Rest. It was just as we remembered, with plenty of space for the nine of us. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, the lovely views form the garden, and the pink sky lights! We hope to be back again soon.
Holmfirth, West Yorkshire
A great week away with 2 generations. Good weather, and staying in a lovely well equipped house.
Found a property we liked and messaged Ocean cottages. Very swift response. Kept us informed of what was happing every step of the way. Cottage was absolutely beautiful- better than the description. Had a wonderful time. Highly recommend.
Carly Marie Smith
3 generation holiday.
Great location, lovely house for us all. Hot tub very popular! We're are coming back next year
The Best House
We have been coming to Croyde for many years and this has been the best house we have stayed in!
Really well equipped, lovely bedrooms and space and all that is needed after a hard days surfing. Especially the hot tub and resident robin that visited us every day to say hello. We will be definitely coming back to stay.
We have all had a lovely time!
The house is well equipped and very comfortables. The lights above the table made you feel very relaxed. The house was amazing to spend family time in. It was great because we were close to the beach! Recommend Ilfracombe Sea Safari if you like boat trips out!
The H Family
Despite the weather, we have had a great time at Pebbles Rest. We celebrated Christmas, 30th birthday and New Year all in 1 week! The house worked really well for all 10 of us. It's very well equipped and comfortable. The hot tub was great fun. Thank you so much for the chocolates and cake (and the milks and teabags etc) - very thoughtful.
The M Family
Just right for a family/friends gathering
This light, airy, clean and spacious dormer bungalow was ideal
for the week-long family gathering we used it for. The garden is
modest but safe for small children and pets. The hot tub was
delightful and added a relaxing element to the whole stay -
especially when it rained! The kitchen was well equipped and an
unexpected birthday cake baked with everything needed present. The
location was ideal - close to the beach and a couple of hundred
yards to the centre of the village.
It is hard to criticise any aspect - recommended.
Kerry C - Exeter
Pebbles Rest is by far the best place we have stayed in!
We've really enjoyed our stay at Pebbles Rest! We have been coming to Croyde for a few years and Pebbles Rest is by far the best place we have stayed in! Everything was here that we needed and it was lovely to relax in the hot tub and enjoy the amazing view!
We hope to be back next year!

Lovely holiday house, great location. Lovely views of the countryside from the hot tub!
Everything catered for and 3 generations had a great time. Lovely beaches and walks. We can recommend Sandleigh Tea Rooms for lovely lunches and cream teas! Much needed after our walk to Baggy Point.
Hope to be back again.
Open and airy house with all the facilities on hand
This was an ideal house for an extended family holiday - three generations including a one-year old. The house was well presented, clean, and well equipped. There wasn't anything we felt was missing, and even enjoyed the jigsaws which were left in the cottage. Parking was a little tight for four cars, but not a problem. We had an excellent week.
Pebbles Rest has been perfect for us
We've been coming to Croyde for a number of years and as our families have grown we needed to find a place to stay that had space for toddlers, teenagers and tired parents in need of a rest!
Pebbles Rest has been perfect for us providing everything we could need and more. We've loved the space, sky light and hot tub and would definitely recommend this fantastic house as a great place to stay in Croyde. We hope to be back again soon.
Beautiful beach and surrounding area.
Thank you for a lovely holiday. The house was very comfortable and clean. All the family enjoyed the hot tub. Beautiful beach and surrounding area.

Thank you for a lovely stay at Pebbles Rest! Had a fabulous week away in a beautiful home! Photos did not do it justice. Hot tub was a lovely bonus. Hopefully be back again soon.
Very good interior design!
We all had a wonderful stay at Pebbles Rest. The bungalow was very clean and extremely comfortable and very spacious. Everything was thought of and provided and more. Have to say you have a very good interior designer! We have rented from another company(not cheap) in Croyde before but our accommodation this time far superior. Obviously we all love Croyde so hopefully will return soon!
A lovely week cycling, surfing, walking, fishing, & golfing.

we are already planning a return visit to this lovely home.
Had a fab week at Pebbles Rest.
The house is lovely and all 11 of us have enjoyed our stay. Everything at Pebbles Rest is well thought of and all the essentials were provided and it was so clean and very homely.
Thank you for everything, we are already planning a return visit to this lovely home.
The house works really well and you are not 'on top of each other'
We stayed at Pebbles Rest over the New Year week. It had a Christmas theme which was great because it was our Christmas as a family. All 10 of us including 2 children were very well accommodated for. The house works really well and you are not 'on top of each other'
The house was extremely well stocked with everything needed and extremely comfortable. As a result of our week there I am buying a new mattress as the bed was so comfortable! The hot tub was brilliant - the weather wasn't good but the hot tub and great surroundings meant that didn't matter.
Had an amazing week and would fully recommend to any large family, any time of year.
The house worked really well for all 10 of us!
Despite the weather, we have had a great time at Pebbles Rest. We celebrated Christmas, 30th birthday & New Year all in 1 week. The house worked really well for all 10 of us!

A really beautiful holiday home. Lots of space, fantastic views
A really beautiful holiday home. Lots of space, fantastic views and great Xbox games for the kids. Would thoroughly recommend.
well furnished with everything you need and in a fantastic location
Absolutely loved this place very well furnished with everything you need and in a fantastic location
Lots of space, fantastic views over fields
Pebbles Rest is absolutely delightful! Lots of space, fantastic views over fields and great computer games for the kids. We had a fantastic time and are hoping to book again next year.
Great location, a one minute walk to the pub and shops
Great location, a one minute walk to the pub and shops in the centre of the village. Only a few places to eat of an evening and it can get busy but we'll worth it. The cottage is an extended bungalow. Sounds small. Don't be fooled. It's enormous. Five bedrooms...a large living dining, all you could want to entertain if it rains, games, SKY, games console. It's near to the beach, about 6 minute walk. If you walk through the chalet site you emerge at the amenity end of the beach where the cafe, toilets etc are. I would recommend this place to all. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and you certainly do here.
bedrooms are spacious and comfy
We spent a week at Pebbles Rest over the Easter break and had a truly lovely time. The property is comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. The layout is just right and the bedrooms are spacious and comfy. It was very clean and well thought out. We would definitely not hesitate to book it again.
A relaxing, clean, practical holiday house
Pebble's rest is in a great location within Croyde and offers a deceptively large and well set up house for families. We went in February with 2 other families and had a fantastic stay. The house was lovely and warm and clean and offered great respite after long walks/surfing. There is plenty of space for different groups but a large enough area to all come together for meals and in the living area. We hope to return soon!
Perfect for a family holiday
This accommodation was acquired at really short notice after being let down by another provider. All the family were pleased with the location, being in walking distance from Croyde village which provided for our every need, morning and evening.
