Sweets Cottage

OC 254
Croyde, England


Sweets Cottage is a charming traditional thatched cottage, one of the most photographed in Croyde, located in the centre of the village and offering spacious accommodation with large garden, terrace, hot tub (no additional charge) and within walking distance to the beach!


Sweets Cottage provides spacious and comfortable accommodation, perfect for large families and groups of friends in the centre of Croyde.


A modern and light Galley style kitchen provides everything you need to cater for your family during your stay.  Facilities include large range style cooker with electric double ovens and gas hob, dishwasher, American style fridge/freezer with water/ice dispenser and a Dualit coffee machine - perfect for morning coffees on the south facing terrace!  The kitchen continues into a dining area with extendable table, seating up to 10 people, and French doors leading to the terrace.  To the other end of the kitchen is a useful Utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer and a downstairs wc.


The main living room is open to the kitchen and dining area and provides plenty of comfortable seating separated into two areas - one end has a large flatscreen Smart tv plus playstation 3 and the other has a lovely woodburner, perfect for warming up after a brisk winter beach walk!  A basket of logs is provided to get you started.  There is also a further separate reading/living room with sofas.


There are 5 bedrooms in total consisting of a large master bedroom with kingsize bed and lovely views over the garden and hillside surrounding Croyde.  This bedroom is accessed by walking through bedroom 4 (doors on both sides and a hallway between the bedrooms) and has a separate contemporary shower room.  Bedroom 4 has twin beds.  There is a further king size bedroom with en-suite shower room plus a twin bedroom and bunk bed room.


To the first floor there is a family bathroom with handheld shower attachment, as well as the 2 en-suite shower rooms and downstairs wc.  


Sweets Cottage potentially has one of the best gardens in Croyde! Set to the rear of the property and being south facing, this lovely, large garden provides plenty of space for children to explore!  Directly off the kitchen/dining area is a paved terrace with table and chairs for 'al-fresco' dining, a hot tub (included within the rental rate), gas BBQ and parking area for 3 - 4 vehicles.  Steps up from the terrace lead to the sloping lawned garden.  At the top of the garden is a summer house terrace with seating, a stunning place to sit and watch the evening sunset with a glass of wine!  Views across Croyde and the surrounding hillside are enjoyed from the rear garden.  To the front of the property, there is a small front garden with the stream running through, a gated foot bridge gives access to St Mary's Road and the short walk to the village and beach. Children should be supervised at all times in the front garden.

Beautiful cottage and area.

We absolutely loved our stay. The cottage was so beautiful, and the area was lovely. The hot tub was so so nice, and all the other amenities were great. The beds were so comfy, and there was plenty of sofas and seating for everyone, even in extra rooms if people wanted some time to read or relax on their own. The kitchen was well stocked, and all of the facilities worked great. Would love to to stay again!

Excellent family holiday house

We had a week's stay with 3 couples and 3 children(2,5, and 7) in Sweets cottage. The accommodation was ideal with space for all, embellished by a sloped garden with seating at the top. There was a handy supply of body boards which provided great entertainment. Cooking/ laundry and waste systems functioned well. We highly recommend this property

Perfect family holiday home

Sweets Cottage is a picture perfect house in a great location. It is has a very well equipped kitchen and great family spaces. The hot tub was much enjoyed at the end of our cooler days. The outside hose was very useful and there is plenty of parking. Thoroughly recommend,

Probably the best place in Croyde but pls fix WiFi !

Great place, fab location and very simply and thoughfully styled. You can walk to the high street (3 mins) and to the beach (15 mins) - so it perfect for the kids to enjoy bit of safe freedom. Great food and pubs all around. It really is a very special place in a very special location. One gripe - surprisingly, Croyde has good internet connectivity (as we experienced at The Thatch, The Manor House and Billy Buds) ... but Sweets Cottage doesn't. Suggest a new router and a call to OpenReach to sort it out. It would have made big difference - especially for those who were trying to work and holiday at the same time.
