This is the most perfect little b and b so close to the town centre and the beach! Gizzy is the most welcoming host and makes a fabulous breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead. The rooms are super clean and the beds comfy. We stay here whenever we head to the coast. Would highly recommend ❤

share a family run b&b with Gizzy (great breakfasts & local advice) & Alistair (surfing knowledge) in a clean modern house with a comfy bed, at the end of a cul-de-sac not far from Croyde centre & a pleasant walk down to the nearby beach

Perfect relaxing stay in a great location, close to Croyde beach. Gizzy the host is very friendly and welcoming. I booked the twin room just for myself which I found very comfortable for my 2 night stay. The room located on the ground floor was really clean and very quiet. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room so... More

Fabulous hosts - great with the 4 children. So accommodating and welcoming. Lovely clean accommodation and great breakfasts. Nice and close to the beach and a short walk to the local pub. Lots to do in the local area with children if you get a bad weather day. Would love to stay again xxx

Spent two nights at Thistledoo and what a pleasure it was - from start to finish Gizzy made us feel so welcome and relaxed. Clean and homely, great breakfasts and top advice from Gizzy about what to do and where to go. Will be back for sure, could not recommend more - thanks Gizzy!
