We love Croyde It is an annual pilgrimage for our family and beats all the many places we have visited all around the world Choice are excellent , as are their beautiful rentals , especially lovely Beach Haven.
Our year is never complete without this holiday and this year was the icing on the cake with the stunning weather.
For fun, friendship and relaxation it cannot be beaten and we sure do miss it!

“Beach Haven was a wonderful venue for our best family holiday ever.”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The accommodation was excellent with every attention to detail, just like home. The nearness to The Thatch was a bonus for our party. One downside though for us with mainly grown up couples was the 3 bedded rooms. Naturally, our grown up grandchildren and their partners didn't want anyone sleeping in their top bunk. The sofas though made adequate beds for two of our party of 14. The garden and play area were a bonus and much used. Access to wifi was an advantage and was also used every day for keeping in touch with work etc. The hot tub was not as hot at the start of the week as we would have liked but this improved over time. Only one jet was working for us at the time. When we reported this Choice Cottages were marvellous and immediately refunded our hot tub fee. We couldn't find any instructions so maybe the problem was our own. All in all a lovely time with all the family together including our cocker spaniel! We will certainly want to use Choice Cottages again. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

“Nice property, lovely hot tub, gorgeous location!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This property gives a good first impression as it greets you with it's lovely decor. Although the property;s layout is somewhat unorthodox, it does have a number of great features, such as a bedroom with fireplace, bedroom with balcony, large flat screen tv, conservatory, outdoor BBQ, good sized garden and the amazing Hot tub (which really is the highlight of the place!

I was torn between giving four or five stars, but there were just a few annoying things that dropped the score (really I would have liked to give 4.5 out of 5.) For example, The kitchen didn't have a working tin opener, despite having two in the drawer. The cutting knives were blunt. The cooker is difficult to operate and we struggled to find any instructions and finally the parking across the road is less than ideal and makes the property difficult to find first time in the dark.

That being said these are all just minor issues, I would definitely stay here again and just bring my own tin opener!

“Top-notch holiday house that facilitated an awesome week”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Comfy, homely, summery and top quality. Despite some of the bedrooms being on the small side, there is lots of comfy seating and more than enough room downstairs, with the conservatory helping it to feel really spacious. The kitchen is really nice too. The garden is almost perfect, and the hot tub was an awesome addition to the week - would highly recommend that!

The bathrooms are really nice and the beds are super comfy as well, which really helps after a long day surfing (beach = 10 minute walk!)

We had a great week and Beach Haven will be in the memory for a long time to come!

“Almost Perfect...if only”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Very well and imaginatively equipped semi detached extended cottage with loads of indoor and outdoor toys to keep chindren and adults happy. Hot tub (£75)and Wifi (£15)helped to give all our family (14 + baby) a memorable holiday. Lovely country views but with the sea a mere blue line on the horizon. Patio and garden great for BBQ. 17 minute walk to beach and 6 minute walk to the public car park ( £2.50 pd) as only space for 2 cars on opposite side of busy road: this could be very dangerous for small ones as there is no pavement and steps go down directly onto road. Shame.
