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

Thistledoo is a great family run B&B in the village of Croyde, North Devon. I stayed at Thistledoo for a week with my boyfriend who had already been there before and recommended it. I was not disappointed as the place far exceeded my expectations - the house is spotlessly clean and the guest rooms well appointed; there are tea and... More

Thistledoo was perfect! Such a warm welcome! Unbelievably flexible and accommodating. Lovely quiet location but walking distance from everything! Would definitely go again! We stayed for a wedding and even having our 11month old daughter with us was no trouble! The whole place was spotless! Just a lovely place to stay!

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.
