Sweets Cottage is a charming, traditional thatched cottage, with 4 bedrooms sleeping 10 (with 9th and 10th guests on a sofa bed). One of the most photographed properties in Croyde, located in the centre of the village and offering spacious accommodation with large garden, terrace, hot tub (additional charge applies) and within walking distance of the beach

This property is currently undergoing improvements to create a private staircase from the dining area leading up to the Master bedroom. A luxury en-suite will be created with a freestanding bath and shower (formerly the family shower room and bunk room). This en-suite will act as a 'Jack and Jill' en-suite for the master bedroom and bedroom 4 if desired.

Works will be completed by May 2024.  In light of this, the layout of the property depicted in current photograph and virtual tour will be altered as per the description below.  If you have any specific questions relating to the layout of this property please contact Ocean Cottages.  New photography and a new Virtual Tour will follow on completion of the works.


A modern and light galley style kitchen provides everything you need to cater for your family or friends 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 Nespresso Vertuo 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.  There is a useful Utility room with washing machine and a downstairs wc.

Stairs lead from the Dining area up to the master bedroom (Currently being installed as described above).  


The main living room is open to the kitchen and dining area and provides plenty of comfortable seating separated into two areas - one side 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 a further separate sitting reading/living room that can be used as a sofa bed for guests 9 and 10.


There are 4 bedrooms to the first floor with the master bedroom (Bedroom 1 - king size) being accessed via the private stairs leading from the dining area into this room which has a luxury 'Jack and Jill' en-suite shower & bathroom which can be shared with Bedroom 4 if desired, (the staircase & en-suite are currently being installed as mentioned in the description). Bedroom 2 is a king size bedroom with en suite shower room, Bedroom 3 is arranged as a twin bedroom and Bedroom 4 is a twin room (with 2 additional trundle beds suitable for children on request - charges apply).  These rooms are accessed from the main staircase.  


To the first floor there is a luxury 'Jack and Jill' en-suite shower & bathroom to Bedroom 1 which can be shared with Bedroom 4 if desired, an en-suite to Bedroom 2, family bathroom with handheld shower attachment and downstairs wc. 


Sweets Cottage potentially has one of the best gardens in Croyde! Set mainly 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, coal BBQ (coal not provided) and parking area for 3 - 4 vehicles.  Steps up from the terrace lead to the hot tub (additional charge applies) and 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.

Perfect for our celebration

We stayed at Sweets Cottage to celebrate our 40th birthdays. It was the perfect social space with plenty of room, and a great location within Croyde. We can't wait to book again

Beautiful well equipped cottage

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Very well equipped kitchen and a great location. Comfortable beds and lots of storage for clothes. The only thing I would point out is that if you have very young children then you have to be extra vigilant as the plates, knives, kitchen supplies are within reach for toddlers but we had no real issues over all.

Fantastic stay

A wonderful few days in beautiful Sweets Cottage. So comfortable and in the best location in Croyde. The Ocean Cottages Team were really helpful and made everything super easy for us. Thank you.

The cottage is super cosy...

The cottage is super cosy and has everything you need. Hosts were quick to respond to any questions we had. The village has everything you need for a little holiday by the sea. It was a really special time spent there.

Beautiful house, great location

Sweets cottage was a fabulous stay. It's only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Croyde but has a lovely, large peaceful garden not overlooked. Lots of space for 10 people in the house and the hot tub was a decent size (could have been slightly warmer). Would love to come back in the future

Sweets Cottage was simply delightful, we couldn't have asked for anything better. A really well-equipped place that accommodated 9 adults well. The hot tub was great even though it was February! Ocean Cottages were great agents, information arrived promptly and the day of arrival went without a hitch - will certainly use again.

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!

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.

We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Sweets Cottage! We are sorry you experienced issues with the wifi, however we are pleased to confirm that there is a new router in place and it is now working well. We hope to welcome you back soon!
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,
