Kelland Family
May 2021
The bungalow is well situated for exploring the North Devon Coastal path with walks direct from the door to Croyde Beach (10 mins), Baggy Point (15 mins), Woolacombe (1.5 hours or so) and Saunton (1 hour or so). Its also well positioned for exploring further afield such as Ilfracombe, Lynton and Lynmouth and Exmoor. For a rainy day Barnstaple, Bideford and Braunton are all worth a visit. The bungalow itself is clean and comfortable

Great place in a perfect location. Highly recommend- the south facing garden is a particular highlight!

Cant Couple
April 2021
Fantastic location, 10mins walk from the beach and 5 minutes into town for the coffee shops and restaurants. Nice spacious bungalow with large front garden and lockable back yard useful for surfboards and wetsuits. We noticed the place had been really thoroughly cleaned before we arrived and Ian has put a lot of thought and effort into COVID-19 precautions. Recommended and great value.

Another great holiday in Croyde. We have been coming to Croyde for a number of years now and have always stayed at the owners other property, Lane Head, so we knew what to expect. Lovely and clean, Braemar has a good sized kitchen and a very comfortable living room to relax in. We will definitely be back.

Roffey couple
October 2020
The property is more spacious than it appears on the website with a good size living room and we particularly liked the big kitchen with a dining area overlooking the garden. Just a short walk to the Post Office for newspapers and shops and the lovely beach also a relatively short walk too. Also nice to have a good quality, large flat-screen TV in the living room. A lovely, spacious property in a wonderful area. The owners are very friendly and communications were excellent.

Excellent villa/cottage ideally located within a lovely Devon village

Snow party
August 2020
This is a nice roomy cottage, which suited our family of four nicely. Some appliances (washing machine/dishwasher/TV) seemed brand new, so obviously there are upgrades being made, the bathroom also looked newly decorated and was very nice. Some furnishings and fittings are starting to look a little tired, but the location of the cottage is excellent for beach and village -we stuck to the beach mostly because of COVID, but the cottage seemed well cleaned and we felt comfortable there.

Parkinson Family
August 2020
Absolutely brilliant. Nice clean and all safety measures in place. We love Croyde and have stayed at another bungalow owned by the same people few years ago and that was beautiful too so we knew what to expect. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting now. 100% recommend.

Goodfellow Family
August 2020
The property was very spacious with lots of storage space available. The kitchen was very large and well-equipped and the Smart TV was a great bonus, as it meant my kids could log onto their Netflix and YouTube accounts!
The location was perfect and we really couldn’t have asked for more, being walking distance from both Croyde beach and the village itself, full of lovely pubs and restaurants.
We loved our time at Braemar and could have easily stayed another week if not more.

Howe Family
July 2020
The house was just as we expected from the website. It was
spacious and simply furnished. The kitchen area was well equipped
and the shower was powerful with lots of hot water. The house was
very clean when we arrived. It provided a great central base to our
holiday in Croyde with easy access to the high street, the beach and
the coastal path. The front garden was bigger than we expected and
we enjoyed the glimpses of the sea from it.
We enjoy coming to Croyde and have visited for the last three or
four years. Great surfing, walks. Also great - ice cream parlour, pizza
oven in front of the General Stores, Squires in Braunton. Billy Budds
was great with its COVID management.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay - particularly the location of
Braemar and the space it offers. Thank you.

Lambert Family
July 2020

Urwin couple
September 2019

We had a lovely stay at Braemar which is very spacious and comfortable. The patio area is great for sitting out in the garden. The location is excellent but still private and quiet being off the main road. Thank you Ian

Tutty family
September 2019

Lovely bungalow in a perfect location for exploring North Devon. I stayed here in September 2019 for a week and was impressed. The property was clean and well appointed, I felt immediately comfortable with everything I expected and more.
Davies Family
August 2019

A very well presented, spacious, spotless and well equipped cottage in a beautiful location. Lovely outdoor space and nice clean crisp bedding. Only two things stopped it getting 5 stars. It was great to have a bath and a shower but we are shower people and when coming back from the beach, it would have been nice to have a more powerful one. Also, the wi-fi which even given the area, was not good. But those things aside, we had a fabulous holiday.

Wright Family
August 2019
Nice spacious and clean house, comfy beds and living area, good facilities
Great location between village centre and beach
Nice to be in a house (as opposed to tent or caravan) when the weather was not so good
Croyde Bay is a wonderful place to stay for an active beach holiday, Village centre is very nice with plenty of choice for food and some good shops
Really enjoyable holiday overall … will come again

Mills Family
July 2019

Situated perfectly for walk into Croyde or the beach. Cosy cottage with decent facilities.
Gorgeous beach, plenty to do locally & in surrounding area.
The area & situation of property mean we would definitely consider staying again at some point in the future.

Durrant Family

We have travelled to Croyde a few times over the last few years and always stayed a Braemar. It has always been clean, friendly and helpful with our growing family. The bungalow was invaluable this year as I was travelling in my wheelchair.

Harding Party

Loxston party

A very roomy bungalow with plenty of space to move around. Comfortable beds and a lovely front garden. "

Mcgrath party
June 2019
 Great location, clean, but needs some minor investment in minor maintenance to spruce up the property. For a family with two adults and up to 4 kids, good value for money and within easy walking access of village food outlets and beach.
 The property ticked all our boxes and was ideal for our stay

Weber Couple
May 2019

The owners are very reliable and the process of booking worked very well. The housekeeper was very friendly and helpful. The house is well equipped and has a small front garden facing the street with a small terrace and barbecue.
We can recommend the cottage  anytime.
The area around Croyde is beautiful. Various extensive beaches and many opportunities for hiking are available. There are also many lovely places and attractions in the area.
Our conclusion: We did not regret it a second to have booked the house!
October 2018
The house is in a great location - walking distance from the beach and our surf lessons, Croyde village and coastal walls. The house itself is comfortable, spacious, and very clean. Ian was an attentive host who responded quickly to any queries we had. We had amazing weather and a great holiday

Great bungalow. Well positioned for the village and the beach. We’d definitely go back here. Ian was great with communications. Nothing negative to say about the entire trip.

Excellent accommodation

Bungalow is ideally situated between village and beach. Two spacious bedrooms and a large kitchen diner. The lounge is very comfortable and is perfect for a family with young children.

Wonderful location for exploring North Devon. Many stunning beaches either side of Croyde which itself is lovely. Would be perfect for a family, we were a couple but bunks & 2 further beds available. Clean & comfortable & within walking distance of the beach & local shops & family pubs.

Jul‎ ‎2016
Spacious bungalow, centrally located in Croyde. Very comfortable. Ideal for families with small children as garden is spacious and safe.
May‎ ‎2016
Perfect location!
10 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes to the pub - what more could you want!
After years of staying in Parkdean Ruda we decided it had become over priced and my family had outgrown the caravans so this 2 bed bungalow was perfect for us and our teenage boys.
Kitchen had everything you needed and more. Wifi was included.
