“Fantastic Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Just like to echo all the comments below - we had a really nice time at Vale Cottage, Chris and Terri are super friendly. The rooms were really comfortable and the cottage itself is within an easy walk of the town itself. Thanks for lovely weekend!

We've just got back from a holiday in Cornwall and Devon and stayed at Vale Cottage in Croyde. The cottage is absolutely stunning, a real credit to Chris and Terri. We were made to feel very welcome, and it was fantastic to be so close to the village. Can't recommend this B&B enough! Croyde village is so pretty and the pubs and bars are fantastic! We personally really liked the Thatch pub, it serves good food at reasonable prices but there is enough choice in the village to suit everybody! The Beach is stunning too, it's nice and clean and safe due to life guards being on duty. When you stay at Vale cottage you get vouchers for breakfast at Blue Groove which we thought was a really good idea as you can have breakfast whenever you want up to midday and they had an excellent choice as well. Thank you Chris and Terri for a wonderfull stay!

My girlfriend and I have just come back from this amazing B&B in Croyde. The location was great, very peaceful and picturesque and the owners (Chris & Terri) were extremely accommodating and friendly.

We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in Croyde for any purpose - Surf, relaxing, stop over etc. We will definitely be back!

5 A*****'s for this perfect B&B!

This B&B in Croyde and its owners are amazing! The Vale Cottage couldn't be more cosy and comfy, warm and full of character. Stayed there with my boyfried a couple of times and we loved it. Also, we stayed there on our first trip together, so this B&B has a special meaning for me too. The breakfast is great, soooo well prepared, Terry and Cris are wonderful hosts and very very nice people. The place is very clean, nice rooms, great bathroom, perfetc! it's about 10minute walk from the main part of town, but even at night the walk is fun and not a problem at all. Defo go back and stay there and highly recommend!

Vale cottage is located just outside croyde main village centre, at most a ten minute walk. My boyfriend and I stayed at the cottage for 4 nights during the Easter half term for a short surfing trip. Every evening we walked into the village for dinner, there is also the Manor pub 5 mins away, which also serves a good dinner.
The couple who own the B & B are lovely, unobtrusive, modest but helpful and informative. They both shared interesting local knowledge about the surf & near beaches and suggested coastal walks and restaurants.
Just up the lane from the cottage a car parking space is provided, and a shower to wash wetsuits, along with storage for boards and to hang wetsuits.
Breakfast is delicious...a standard full english with coffee, tea or juice.
The room was clean and very cosy, a typical country cottage with oak beams and crooked walls.
We have already booked to stay again and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Book the double with additional lounge.

We stayed at Vale Cottage around this time last year and enjoyed it and the surrounding area so much we came back again the other week.

The cottage itself is a traditional Devon longhouse of some hundreds of years old c/w thatched roof and inglenook fireplace. The interior is not 5* hotel but all the better for it. Homely and lived-in is the style which really suits the outdoor pursuits that the area has to offer. The atmosphere is very relaxed and unpretentious. Our suite was spacious and more like a studio flat than a bedroom. Bed was comfortable. Nice toiletries in the shower-room. Everything clean and tidy. As the cottage is just out of the village (but only a couple of minutes walk from village centre) it was incredibly quiet at night so we got very good sleep. Parking easily available either at the end of the garden or across the lane in the church carpark.

The owners, Terri and Chris, are wonderful hosts. Very knowledgeable about the locality, particularly if you enjoy surfing or walking, and are more than willing to lend out maps and share local info and guidance. We certainly appreciated the advice on particular walks to take, of which the area has many of.

The breakfasts were superb. Good choice of cereals and drinks to start. Full English uses quality ingredients in just the right amount. Breakfasts served in the couple's own dining room which gives a nice relaxed start to the day.

Price-wise this B&B is seriously good value for both accommodation and location. We would recommend it to anyone except for families. On that note we wish Chris and Terri all the best for the imminent birth of their child.
