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!

We stayed here on a last minute surf trip and after one night we couldn't bring ourselves to leave so Gizzy very kindly let us book in again at short notice for the next night! A lovely and very friendly b & b right near the centre of Croyde! Very clean and lovely brekkie! Thanks Gizzy and will surely be... More

I would highly recommend the Thistledoo B&B for a warm welcome and a comfortable, relaxed stay. The rooms are very clean and the full cooked breakfast is excellent! Gizzy is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I can't wait until my next visit!

Yet again, we stayed in Thistledoo this weekend and had another great time. Gizzy is the most helpful person and will always make sure that you're getting the most out of your stay. You can book with confidence that everything will go well when you stay here. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, as are the bathrooms. And there's space... More

We stayed in Thistledoo B&B a couple of times and it is firmly our favourite in Croyde now. It's simple but clean and cosy and feels like a family home rather than a hotel. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxed, the breakfast is delicious, and Gizzy is really warm and friendly and makes everyone feel welcome and looked after.... More

I have stayed at Thistledoo a number of times because of the friendly welcoming atmosphere and proximity to the beach and to the centre of Croyde. Breakfast is always great and the rooms are cosy. I would recommend Thistledoo to everyone.
