Thank you again for another wonderful stay. 3 years in a row and counting! As a family ranging form 35-85, it suits us down to the ground. 

We have been blessed yet again with wonderful weather so life is much easier. A stroll to the beach, and a day full of sandcastles- even at our ages sandcastles are high on the agenda!

Superb house and Location

Rip Curl is a well designed and comfortable house which suited our multi- generational group. The kitchen was fully equipped and was a wonderful social space. It is a five minute walk to the beach an amazing location. The Hot Tub was fantastic too! A throughly enjoyable stay. Thanks

Beautiful Home

A beautiful home in a lovely location. Rip Curl is well-equipped and beautifully decorated. We have a wonderful weekend as a multi-generational group. 10 to 74 years old!

Lovely Property

Had a lovely stay at Ripcurl, very well catered for families and cooking. Loved the hot tub. Great access to village, amenities and beach. Look forward to visiting again soon.

Gees & Hardings   Oct 2023
A lovely house in a good location.

This house was well located and only a short walk to Croyde beach. The kitchen was well equipped and the hot tub and outside space were lovely. Some proper curtains in the kids' bunk bed room would make it perfect as the current white blinds don't block any light at all.

October Half Term 2022

We've had a fantastic long awaited - thanks Covid! - family trip away, parents, 3 sons and their families. We love it in Croyde, it's a red heart place for us and we're so grateful to have had Ripcurl at the cantre of it this time. Thank you so much. Much love, Bird Families.

Wonderful pre Christmas stay

We (3 adults and 3 children) had a wonderful stay at Rip Curl. The cottage offered everything we could wish for. It was perfectly clean, the kitchen is very well equipped and the kids loved the books, games and hot tub. The booking process and communication with Ocean Cottages was excellent and we very much recommend staying at Rip Curl.

Caroline   Oct 2022

We were a party of 3 couples with one toddler and RIP Curl was ideal for our long weekend. The house has everything you need, and more. The hot tub and fire pit are brilliant additions and the back gate onto the lane to the beach means a 5 minute stroll and you're on the sand. What more could you want. Highly recommended!

Emma Hunt   Oct 2022
We Love The Hot Tub

Amazing location! House was super, lots of space & the hot tub was a hit with all! Definetly recommend the local pubs & restaurants.

Brilliant Holiday House, Conveniently Located

Rip Curl is a very well equipped property with a spacious kitchen/dining area, separate lounge and six good bedrooms. There is plenty of room in the dining area and the lounge for four adults and four children. The location is well situated for both the beach and the village of Croyde, both being only a short walk away. The hot tub was a feature that was particularly enjoyable. Overall a well maintained property that can be thoroughly recommended.

Great family holiday

Stayed at Rip Curl for 2 weeks, which was very relaxing. Handy for the beach, pubs, restaurants and the house is perfect for families. Great kitchen and facilities, hot tub, outside shower and wet suit cleaning area. Ocean cottages were also very helpful when ever we needed to contact them. We had a bit of confusion with the recycling as it is so different to back home. Specific instructions / clearly marked up bins ( think there was only 1 useable) would help us next time! Thanks.

Thank you Barry. We are so pleased to hear that you had a great experience. We will look into the recycling instructions and see how these can be improved, thank you for the feedback.
Wonderful stay.

Thank you. We had a fantastic time. As a family it's our 3rd year with Ocean Cottages and we've loved it.

Jen Stockton   Jun 2022
Beautiful home.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Rip curl house. The house itself is very well thought out for surfing and socialising groups. The kitchen/garden views are stunning and the access to the beach made it extra special. We would highly recommend ocean cottages to friends and family for future holidays as the communication was very easy and all our queries were answered practically immediately.

Great Family House

Rip Curl was a great house for our annual family weekend away Easily enough space for 9 adults (even if one had to sleep in the bunk beds!) The kitchen is very well equipped with good quality pans and utensils Short walk to the beach, with plenty of route options, rear gate is a real bonus The fire pit and outdoor seating were both ideal Parking for 4 cars easily (if sensibly parked) Good facilities for washing wetsuits and boards when coming of the beach, so no need to walk sand etc. into the house and indoor showers Sofa could be bigger and more comfortable would be the only negative

Management comment
Thank you very much for your lovely review and feedback, we have passed your comments onto the owners in regard to the sofa, so hopefully you will see some improvements in the regard if you choose to return to this lovely property.
Exactly as expected. High end let in a great location.

The property, hot tub, fire pit and rest of the amenities are on point. This is a great place for both beach and Croyde.

Excellent holiday home

We needed a large place for a family celebration, to accommodate children and grandchildren across 3 generations. This was perfect for everyone. Very well equipped with lots of space so that everyone had their own bedroom and space if needed. The hot tub was a hit with all generations and the fire pit was well used for marshmallow roasting in the evenings. The surfing extras of board store, wet suit store and the outside shower were very well used and appreciated. The proximity to the beach (7 minutes walk according to the eldest grandson!) is particularly good because the cars can stay on the drive and in peak season that is a real bonus! It's not often that, as a family, we can find unanimous agreement but on Rip Curl everyone wanted to return again.

Clive Harrold   Aug 2021

Just back from a fabulous week staying at Ripcurl. Superb location with handy secure gate onto Sandy Lane, fantastic hot shower and wetsuit storage then into the hot tub right there ! Comfortable bedrooms, quality towels and lots of bathroom space. Well equipped kitchen and liked the big blackboard, comfy living room with log burner.

Perfect for beach and village

Lovely light airy property. Slept 9 comfortably including 7 adults and 2 older teens. Literally perfect for a stroll to the beach and took us about 5 -7 minutes. Would highly recommend paying extra for the hot tub which was immaculate. Make sure you take wood for the fire pit as this is not provided, we took our own but not sure where we would have brought it locally. We spent every night by the fire pit and it was so sociable. Kitchen is well equipped and plenty of towels are provided for use inside. Wasn't much hanging room for towels so we washed ours frequently using the washing machine and dryer and they washed up beautifully, put my towels at home to shame. Would suggest taking small make up mirrors as not all rooms have them. I would say this house would suit all age groups but we found it particularly suited our older teenagers and we take home fond memories. Would very much hope to return.

Comfortable, well equipped, location

Close to beach. Quiet road. Private. Generally excellent. Tasteful. Well equipped. Evening sun on deck. Very enjoyable holiday. Few maintenance issues like slow draining sinks and Upstairs shower. Fridge door seal broken. Hot tub not hot ( Luke warm). Premium price so didn't expect maintenance issues.

Scott   Aug 2020
Had an amazing time!

The hot tub was great, and the beach was even better!

We really enjoyed our stay, thank you!

Superbly finished property

Rip Curl is ideally situated in the village of Croyde, with easy access to the local pub, shops etc as well as the beach. We visited in February half term so the pub was a welcome stop in point for walks on the coast during Storm Dennis! The properties has 3 shower rooms which was a big bonus for our party (3 families). The huge kitchen/dinner was our hub and I'm sure in the Summer months when the bi-folds can be opened it will be an even bigger centre. The kitchen was very well equipped if you cooked at home including a large fridge and freezer. The utility room also had washing machine and dryer. During the week we did have a couple of issues with the boiler with the pilot light blowing out due to the storm and maybe it needs a service after the downtime, but when it was running, provided plenty of hot water for both bathing and radiators. The one minor downside to the property was not enough seating in the lounge area (for the size of the property). This is unlikely to be an issue in the summer when the patio and bi-folds extend the interior, but in the winter months cosying up by the fire we needed a couple of extra chairs in there.

We had a lovely time and really appreciated the decorations.

We have booked again for summer 2020! and can't wait!

Wonderful house, especially the terrace and garden for eating outdoors.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ripcurl. The rooms are light, spacious and well appointed. The kitchen opens out onto the terrace and has a large table and eating area. The outstanding feature is the terrace, with plenty of seating for outside dining. The beach is a short walk away. The Ocean Cottages team were very helpful and accommodating during our stay. A great holiday.

A great week

Ripcurl provided an excellant location.  We enjoyed the beach, learning to surf and time in the hot tub.  Would love to return! Thank you

Perfect for our needs

Gorgeous house, very high spec, loads of space for 3 families. Perfect location for walks to beach and strolls to local pubs. Great facilities for surfers. Would happily book again and strongly recommend.

Rob   Apr 2019

What a wonderful few days at Ripcurl.  Such a treat to be able to walk back from the beach and get straight under a hot shower! The food at the Thatch & Rock is not to be missed!

Fantastic Stay

Fantastic Stay, everything that we needed for a fun weeks holiday.

Loved the access to the beach and the hot outside shower on return.

Hopefully be back soon.

Beautiful coast, lovely area, fantastic accommodation...

Thanks to Rip Curl and the weatherman for a great week of sun, sea, surf and relaxation

Hope to come again...

The Shooters   Feb 2019

We had a great October break at Rip Curl, the house has everything that you need for a relaxing break. We loved that you were just a 5 min walk from the beach. My children tried body boarding for the first time and loved it. The hot outside shower is a great idea. Had a lovely meal at the blue groove in Croyde. Hopefully be back soon.

Thank you so much for a lovely week stay at Ripcurl.
Croyde and Woolacombe are beautiful. All of our family have truly enjoyed our stay, BBQ every evening. Maybe a couple of sunloungers in the garden would finish it off. Thank you. All the very best.

Thank you for the most amazing stay at Rip Curl for my mums 60th birthday.
The house and location have been simple stunning. Highlights have been family fun in the hot tub, sitting around the fire toasting marshmallows and listening to music, board boarding at the beach and having drinks at The Manor. Perfect Holiday, thank you!

Fantastic and friendly service
Ocean cottages were very helpful from the moment of first contact, right through to the point of departure, and some. They helped me find a wonderful 10 birth house for my family and I to stay in at a week's notice, during a very busy half-term week in Croyde. Every enquiry was responded to promptly and nothing seemed too much to ask of a very friendly team. I'll certainly be recommending OC and using them again.
