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 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

I stayed at the B and B for a long period of time, the owners were flexible and accommodating. The rooms and b and b is modern, very clean, and has a fresh atmosphere. The B and B is very close to the beach and the village. Thank you very much :)

We stayed for a surfing weekend, and we could not have wanted for more. Great location to walk down to the beach, we even just kitted up and walked straight down and into the surf. Garden set up for boards and suits wash down. Warm welcome and a nice B&B. 10min walk to Croyde centre for shops and restaurants. I... More
