“Fantastic home”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have recently returned from a week at the Dunes in Croyde and loved everything about it. The house was wonderful and had everything we could need & more. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and well equipped and the large garden fantastic for both us & our furry friends. The hammock was the icing on the cake! The location was perfect for us to walk to the beach or the village shops and pubs. We also spent some lazy afternoons just sitting in the garden. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Dunes or Ocean Cottages who were great to deal with and can't wait to go back. Even the weather was great & we loved listening to the music from Oceanfest which was going on at the time.

“"Dunes 2014" Best holiday in Croyde ever”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We have stayed in Croyde in different properties around the period of the "Oceanfest" for the last 8 years. The weather between 13th and 20th June was amazing which helps a lot but this was equally matched by the beautiful, well appointed, well equipped accommodation that "Dunes" affords, the kitchen is just a wonderful size. The outside hot shower was great as was the hammock which everybody enjoyed. The mature garden was well maintained and conducive to having garden parties or just simply to relax in. We know the area well and enjoy the compactness of Croyde with great pubs/restaurants Blue Groove and The Thatch but to name just two. The walk from Woolacombe beach to Putsborough and back again is a highlight and recommended to all especially as the beach is dog friendly to responsible pet owners.

“Excellent all round”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I was initially a little cautious using a company I'd never heard of before, but I have to say Ocean Cottages have been excellent ! They're very prompt with communication and very helpful.
The house `Dunes` in Croyde was probably better than I expected, very very spacious and in a superb location only a few minutes walk throuh the sand dunes to the beach. (or around the corner and cross over the rocks to the beach too). The only very minor negative point is a very slight lack of furniture in the house, ie no bedside tables. Other than that, it was great and I'll definitely return. Even the neighbours were pleasent :-)
There were 5 adults, taking 4 dogs.... The perfect holiday location for such a party.

“A fabulous long weekend”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were two families (eight people in total) and had a great stay at Dunes. There was loads of room and we appreciated the space for parking, the warm outside shower for rinsing off wetsuits and the garage storage space for boards etc. The beach is walkable. The kitchen in v. well equipped and the house warm, spacious and comfortable. We had forgotten to order towels (a reminder/flag about this would have been good) but the housekeeper brought them round within half an hour when we rang to ask where the towels were. Loads of hot water - we would definitely return to this property and I would imagine it's warm and cosy in the winter. Plenty of room for 8 people. They could do with fitting a lock on the downstairs loo, though. Very clean condition and a bottle of fizz awaiting us on arrival. Look forward to going back.

And we look forward to your return! Dunes has proved hugely popular with our guests and we are so pleased that you enjoyed everything that it had to offer. You are right - the wood-burning stove gives a very cosy atmosphere and is delightful to return to when you have just walked the beautiful beaches and stunning coastal paths! Ocean Cottages looks forward to welcoming you back and if you look on the site there are always fabulous off peak offers to be enjoyed!

“Clean spacious house”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Plenty of room for our family of three and our friends a family of four. House was clean and spacious and provided everything you need.
Nice short walk to beach through Leadengate, nice hot outside shower for your return.
Main bathroom needs a shower, only a handheld device, not great. Two en-suite areas brilliant.
Lovely garden area, hammock a big hit.
On the whole a great house and stay in Croyde.

The Dunes has proved to be such a popular holiday cottage, located in such a perfect position for all the family. Will speak with the owners concerning the shower in the family bathroom and see if we can address that. Look forward to welcoming you back!

“Perfect stay.....”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We all came from different parts of the country for two of our friends birthday to celebrate and what a great place to do it. The house was perfect and accommodate all our needs! The location is perfect for both the beach and the village. The house was clean through out. The garden was great for lounging out in.

The only downside was the neighbours as they complained about the noise but we were celebrating two birthdays, We apologise for the noise.
