Stayed in Croyde over the Easter long weekend with a couple of mates, and had booked this place over several other similar places purely because I felt they were the most accommodating to what I was looking for (ideally 3 in a room at a reasonable rate considering it was the Easter holiday), plus they had taken the trouble to reply to my enquiry promptly (a couple of other places did not even bother to reply!). Did not regret my decision at all!
The property has two barns, and we were lucky to stay in the front barn with two double beds and a single bed added at short notice. Very spacious, very clean with a flat screen TV, small fridge with free water & milk, hair dryer, central heating and tea/coffee making facilities. Modern en-suite had a good power shower, with enough towels and toiletries provided. The barns have their own private entrances and are detached from the main building, which is great as it means you don't have to worry about disturbing the owners particularly late at night.
Breakfast in the conservatory of the main building was great, lots of choice on cereal, toast with jams/marmalades and variations on the full english, which was really well made and not swimming in grease like you get at some other places. There is also a gated parking area provided at the rear of the main building, and a lovely quiet stream running in front of the property. Location is fantastic...you are two minutes walk from the centre of Croyde, halfway between the Thatch/Billy Budds and the Manor pubs so everything is within easy reach.
Only got to meet one of the owners Alison, a really lovely person, welcoming and willing to help and advise/recommend things at all times. Thank you Alison for a great relaxing weekend and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others. Indeed we intend to book the Parminter again for our return to Croyde!!
