Byecross House
Ranked #9 of 21 Croyde B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very warm and comfortable with masses of space and our own kitchen to brew up in, so we didn't feel as if we were living on top of our hosts. Jenny cooks a terrific breakfast and is full of good ideas for walks and places to see. In her position I would have been aghast when we turned up completely unannounced in the middle of a monsoon, but instead she welcomed us warmly before disappearing into the murk to buy food for breakfast the next day (by the way, it was largely sunny after that!). The house and its lovely garden are in a quiet and sunny position on the edge of a pretty village, with 2 excellent pub/restaurants five minutes' walk away along a quiet lane past thatched cottages. In every way an ideal spot for a relaxing break.

My girlfriend and I stayed for the weekend at the end of September, this place is fantastic. Its location is perfect in that it's a very short walk to the Rock Inn with its great food and ales. The accommodation itself is great. You get an annex to the house to yourself with a little kitchenette, large bedroom, lounge with patio doors out on to the beautiful garden and views. The wetroom shower is brilliant. The breakfasts are really tasty and the cake that Jenny left out to welcome us was a lovely touch. Will stay again definitely.

This was our second family (2 adults & 14yr old son David) visit to Byecross House. Again, we were delighted with the most tranquil location and the quality/cleanliness of the accommodation. Jenny is extremely helpful and considerate freely giving us advice on places to visit during the day and pubs/restaurants to eat in the evening. The breakfast is quite excellent. We stayed for a week and indulged in a full English on 3 mornings. I have truly never seen such wholesome eggs and the mushrooms were extremely tasty. Having free use of the kitchenette enabled our family to eat in on some evenings and it was just brilliant to sit out in the garden to watch the sun slipping down over the horizon. Not a sound to disturb the peace save the seriously free-range hens. Highly recommended!

So often the term disabled access varies from a euphamism to a downright lie, but this is one property that can't fail to impress with it's attention to detail to provide the less mobile with a holiday they will never forget. Jenny's level of service and breakfasts means you never want to leave.

We had a lovely time. A very nice setting and extremely spacious accommodation. Underfloor heating was good especially at this time of the year - it kept it very warm. Good breakfast, fully recommended. Friendly too.

Byecross House is a truly excellent find. We have stayed a couple of times since finding it by chance within this last year. Jenny and John are the perfect charming hosts. The accommodation, which is a highly spacious annexe to their beautiful house in Georgeham, is very tastefully presented and extremely comfortable with fantastic wet room, kitchenette, conservatory and large living room. Jenny’s delicious breakfast is served in their conservatory with a magnificent outlook across their garden and North Devonshire countryside beyond. The setting is hard to fault being within walking distance to the north devon beaches and coast paths, a 2 minute walk to the Rock inn (which is also highly recommended). In all a stay at Byecross House makes for a truly idyllic break for anyone who wants to enjoy the stunning scenery and beaches of North Devon with a high degree of privacy and comfort. Thank you again Jenny. I hope we can continue to enjoy visiting for many years to come.

We stayed here for a weekend in October and were blown away with the beautiful house, breakfast and warm hosts. We would definitely recommend this place for a truly lovely and special experience. Everything was truly excellent. The self contained annexe was such a great space, huge and private with fantastic features and views. Beutiful sky windows in the lounge which were very romantic. The breakfast room was so quaint and lovely and the breakfast itself was utterly delicious. The host makes her own jam and it is devine. The sweet family labrador is worth the long drive from London alone! The place is clean and new and we did not want to leave! The bathroom is so much more than a bathroom with its amazing shower room. Luxury! This is a great place for couples but also a family or even a group of friends. It is very versatile and the local two pubs are lovely! 10/10.
