excellent accomodation, really lovely home from home quality cottage.

Would book this house again, handy for sea, lovely hot tub, and really nice quality home fittings and utensils etc. So often one rents with basic mugs, cheap cutlery etc, this was entirely different, we were so glad the quality was there because the weather was awful, but not put us off we will be back!

Perfect accommodation for a family holiday, both very clean and comfortable in a great location.

Sands End was the perfect choice of accommodation for our family holiday in delightful Croyde. It was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well maintained, making it very easy to settle in to. The hot tub was a great asset too! The location was spot on, being in easy walking distance of the beach and village. Would love to return to this property.

Amazing house, great location to beach.

We were very impressed with Sands End, very clean and tidy. Loved the hot tub. A tumble dryer would have been handy but not sure where you would install one! The location for the beach was brilliant especially as our 2 year old granddaughter wanted to walk there and back every time! Ha ha. A little confused about the bin collection. Also very impressed with the service from Ocean Cottages and will be recommending them to family and friends. Thank you, we had a brilliant family holiday, just what we needed.

Spacious holiday cottage in prime location

Sands End is located just a few minutes from the pubs and shops in the village and there is a short almost car free walk to the beach. We were the first rental after lock down was eased and some of the stuff that makes Sands End comfortable like the settee cushions and seat pads for the outside furniture had been removed because they cannot be made COVID safe. I would strongly recommend all guests to bring a couple of cushions with them and something to pad the outside chairs otherwise they are pretty unusable. The kitchen whilst less well equipped than usual still contained enough stuff for us to cook everything we wanted to. The BBQ is great and we used a local butcher in Braunton (Reeds) for meat. Sands End is a very comfortable property with space for 3 cars on the drive. The beds are comfy and having a SMART TV means we can still sign into Netflix etc... We only ate out once but used local takeaways Blue Groove, Pop Up Pizza in the Village and Hobs. The fairs and markets in Croyde (Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday) when we visited were a lovely diversion after being stuck at home indoors for weeks. This was our second holiday in Sands End and we are already rebooked for October and next July.

Lovely bungalow

Lovely bungalow, spotless on arrival. Comfortable beds, Croyde itself never lets us down.  Only suggestion to improve, is to have a television in the Master Bedroom and hair dryer, otherwise facilities excellent.

Lovely house

Family joined us for a couple of days to celebrate my 60th and then we enjoyed just being my husband and I for the last 4 days.  Will use Ocean Cottages again.  Many thanks.

Really fantastic place to stay

This is a fantastic space for a family or two families. It has excellent decor, and is really well equipped with all that you need. The location is perfect,a lovely quiet road that has immediate access via an easy footpath to the beach. Space for two cars and more on the street if you need. Very easy little walk into croyde, we absolutely loved it and so did our girls ages 4 and 1.

A wonderful place with everything you need.

This is a modern large property with an excellent kitchen with everything in it you could possibly want. The outdoor warm shower for post surfing is absolutely perfect. It's very close to the village and beach. We had a great week and it's a luxury to come back from surfing, using the outdoor shower and relax in the hot tub! Five star.

We stayed at Sands End the first week of July and were so pleased that we choose that property. It was spacious, modern, close to Croyde village and the beach. The property is very well appointed - it has literally everything you can possibly need - so on reflection we didn't need to bring as many things from home! Bedrooms are all great - with very nice pillows and linens. The BBQ out the back is great - plenty of space to cook a meal for the family. Could not fault our stay here one bit...only downside was that we had to go home in the end!

Great place to stay!
The house was perfect and had a lovely feel. It was a good size, light and modern. The house had a fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed. There was a great size garden which was maintained with a lovely seating area ideal for BBQ's and a hot tub. The location of the property was great with a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. The Deli does a great breakfast! The property was dog friendly with a secure garden. We very much enjoyed our 2 weeks here and we loved North Devon!
