We had a lovely, relaxing holiday. This was the perfect place to stay, a short walk into croyde village and also to the beach. The house had everything we needed. A well presented and cared for holiday home. A lovely, private outdoor area/garden. We couldn't have asked for more. Great to have the use of body boards too! Thank you.
The house is situated close to the village and the beach. It is very well equipped and beautifully presented. Lots of lovely touches - the cream tea which was yummy, flowers in every room which I love and body boards in the garage. Also the wetsuit tub in the garden and downstairs shower great for the surfers amongst us. A great house , we will definitely be back .
This house is tastefully decorated in a beach style thoroughly in keeping with the surroundings. Only a short walk to Croyde Beach and into the village centre, it is ideally located for families wanting a UK beach holiday.
The owner has clearly spent a great deal of thought, time and money making the house look great and feel. The kitchen is well equipped with hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer and has an open plan diner and living space. There is sufficient room for a small family (parents and 2 children) or a small group of friends. The bedrooms are spacious enough for a one- or two-week holiday and are tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and the master has a large en-suite.
The owner has thought of most things; there is a gas barbecue on a spacious patio area and there is an area to rinse and hang wetsuits. The garage has a tumble dryer and more space for hanging wet clothes and swimming costumes. The garden is secluded and not overlooked.
In summary, a wonderful, well-located and well-equipped house perfect for small families. We had a great week and would definitely come back again.
We had a lovely week in The Porthole. Having three bathrooms was a major plus. The kitchen and living area were excellent. Everything being new, fresh and very functional.
The garden was brilliant and the furniture provided enabled us to enjoy the sun. Having the garage to store our surfboards etc was something we've not had before.
Jane was very helpful before and during our week.
Would thoroughly recommend.
We were very impressed by 'Portholes'. It had obviously recently been refurbished which helped and we generally liked the decor and the layout. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and appliances. The decking area is a great idea and well done and there was a good size barbeque in the garage. The bathrooms were modern and well decorated. We are used to a larger bed (master bedroom) and that would have been nice but possibly not practical in the space. Can we suggest putting decent mirrors in the en-suite bathroom and downstairs toilet/shower room and hooks behind bedroom doors would also be good. The location was perfect - 5 minutes walk from beach and village centre and the Close was quiet. All in all we were very happy. Thank you.
We would highly recommend this property following our week in Croyde. The location is great, quite cul-de-sac but within walking distance of the beach, Croyde & it's many excellent hostelries. The house is clean, bright & modern, with everything you could possibly require for a comfortable stay & some unexpected luxuries like fresh flowers, everything for a cream tea & white company bedlinen. Owner Jane very efficient & courteous. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would book again, as Croyde is a good base for exploring North Devon.
My husband and I had a fabulous 2 weeks at The Porthole. The property is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and felt like a home from home.
It has a lovely garden which benefits from the sun all day and evening. The weather was fab so we made the most of the gas barbecue provided and the bodyboards!
All in all a wonderful home!
