A last minute break for the bank holiday and what a little gem we found. Thistledoo is a beautiful, well cared for property both inside and out in an ideal spot, literally a 5 minute walk to either the beach or village centre. On arrival Gizzy was as others have said most friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the family... More

I've been staying at Gizzy's B&B for a few years now and I wouldn't go anywhere else in Croyde. It's an excellent B&B, and Gizzy is very friendly and welcoming. The B&B is perfectly situated near Croyde Bay beach. It only takes 5 mins to walk there and 5 mins to the pubs and restaurants.

I've stayed at a few B&Bs in Croyde, and this was definitely the best. Gizzy was lovely, the rooms were great (and very reasonably priced), and breakfast was really good. The B&B is situated just a few minutes walk up from the Thatch pub. Will definitely be back soon.

My husband and I booked for a 3 night stay with our 5 year old granddaughter. I felt very uneasy about sharing a bathroom and almost reconsidered our stay, however due to Gizzy being such a warm and welcoming host, whereby anything was no trouble I stayed, relaxed and didn't want to leave. Our granddaughter loved Gizzy, who always fussed... More

I stayed with my boyfriend in a double room over a long weekend in mid-July to go surfing. Gizzy and her husband were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great, full English breakfast every morning and the room itself was a very good size - it was a double, but also had a single in... More

Just had a super weekend - my wife and I and our two young children (5 and 8) were really looked after by Gizzy in the Thistledoo. The family room was perfect - really clean, quiet and comfortable with a nice double and two good size singles for the children - it also had a DVD/TV player to calm the... More

We had a short surf break in Croyde & couldn't have asked for anything better from a B&B. Ideally situated 5-10 minute easy walk from the beach & the centre of the village, it's also set back from the road meaning it's fairly peaceful. The rooms & bathroom are simple but very clean & cosy - it really felt like... More

We had a short weekend break here and loved every second of it. Very close to Croyde and the beach. The rooms are spotless and so are the bathrooms. A lovely friendly place that we will be sure to visit again. Gizzy makes a lovely breakfast, one which we will miss in the morning!

We had a fantastic weekend break - fantastic location, 5-10minute walk to the beach. Lovely clean room, really homely feel to this B+B - Gizzy was extremely welcoming and friendly, and looked after us exceptionally well!
