We booked this one night stay at the last minute and we were made very welcome as soon as we arrived. It was like staying with a family that you already knew, in their house. Our boys camped in the garden which they loved and we had a lovely clean room. In the morning we were made a lovely English... More

Stayed here again - it is our favourite place to stay in Croyde. Lovely family, very welcoming, great breakfasts, everything super clean and comfortable. The hosts are very laid back, and the house is in a lovely quiet location, but so close to the beach.

From the moment we arrived Gizzy was a fantastic host. The most welcoming and humble person. Gizzy made our stay all the better for sure. Thistledoo is set down a lane out of the way from any noise so you are sure to get a good nights sleep. The room was clean and tidy and perfect for me, my husband,... More

Have been coming here for many years and I must say probably the most welcoming family this side of the pond. Facilities are comfy and spacious and I'm always invited in for tea even when the kitchen is bustling with guests. First rate breakfast and the coffee is quite excellent. Top marks!

We booked this very last minute about an hour before we arrived and Gizzy was very accommodating! A warm welcome awaited us and a lovely room for our stay! Breakfast was done for a pre-arranged time to suit us and gave us a good start to the day. Cannot recommend this highly enough!

Having just spent 3 nights with Gizzy & her family, I cannot recommend this B&B enough. I was met with a warm & friendly reception & was made to feel so welcome. My room came with a tv, and coffee & tea making facilities. Gizzy kept me well stocked with biscuits which after a whole day of surfing was most... More

I have just come back from a brilliant weekend in Croyde. Gizzy and family were wonderful, they are really fun and sociable, and make a delicious breakfast! I went with friends who stay there all the time, and now I completely understand why! Croyde is a wonderful destination in devon, the landscape and beaches are wonderful and it is full... More

We had a lovely stay with Gizzy. Delicious breakfasts, lovely chats and lots of help and suggestions about what to do. Whatever the reason you are visiting the area - you can't go wrong with this comfortable and clean home from home. Highly recommended!

Staying with Gizzy and family is brilliant. They are the loveliest people and nothing is too much trouble (plus she makes fab breakfasts). The house is lovely, really easy if you are a surfer (places to clean and store kit etc, plus an excellent shower for when you are chilly post-sea) and just a short walk to the beach and... More
