“loved it!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

You will want to come back time and time again- I've been here twice already. A perfect base for anyone looking for a clean and homey place after a day out surfing. And the breakfasts, they're amazing! Gizzy is so wonderful and accommodating, nothing is ever too much trouble :)

We had a girly weekend of surfing and found this B&B through the internet. It was a great choice: Central but quiet, clean and run by a very friendly family. Gizzy was a great host, full of good advice, great stories and very organised. Us ladies shared the family room upstairs which suited everyone fine. We could not have been made to feel more welcome. Thank you, we intend to return soon.

I stayed with my two in a family room which i couldn't fault, clean tidy with everything we needed. Gizzy and her family are lovely people and made us feel extremely welcome. Thistledoo is perfectly situated with only a five minute or so walk to the beach and village. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Being a young couple who had never stayed in a B&B before my boyfriend and I were not sure what to expect however Thistledoo was just perfect for us!
We stayed in the double room which was spacious , clean and had everything we needed. Gizzy and her family were beyond friendly and were full of advice on the surf/places to eat/board hire. The breakfast was superb , definately helped us for a day of surfing.
The location of Thistledoo is ideal , 5-10 minute walk to the beach and town which meant we could save on car parking and walk down with our surfboards.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Thistledoo and did not want to leave! Thankyou very much to Gizzy and her family.

We concur with all the other really satisfied customers who have written reviews on this lovely B&B. Our teenager and her friend took the ground floor bedroom with single beds and we took an upstairs bedroom with double bed and one single for our other daughter. We booked quite late and were very lucky to get 2 nights midway through a Half Term. The whole experience was very relaxed. We were able to come and go as we pleased which was great as the weather was very wet. Gizzy's breakfasts really set us up for the day. You couldn't really get nearer to the beach and facilities for dealing with wet and sandy wetsuits were great. We would definitely ask to stay again. Thank you. :-)

Enjoyed our short stay at Thistledoo. Gizzy was a great hostess and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. We really enjoyed our stay. Room was a decent size and was clean and comfortable. Property is in a good location just a 5 minute walk into the village.

Thistledoo was a lovely place to stay and the family room we stayed in was a good size for me, my husband and our 2 children (8yrs and 10yrs).The beds were extremely comfy!!
We had a good flat screen TV/DVD/iPod combi in the room, which certainly helped with the children when it was raining and we didn't go out straight away!!
Gizzys breakfasts were delicious and she was very conscious of making sure we all enjoyed it!
The bed and Breakfast is in a fab location to the beach and town and we'll certainly stay here again on our return trip to Croyde!
