Oyster Cove is a three bedroom cottage within walking distance of Croyde Beach. Sleeping up to eight and welcoming dogs, the cottage is set back from the main road and has a lovely enclosed garden, as well as off road car parking.

Great week in well equipped cottage in good location in Croyde

Comfortable cottage with lovely garden in a very good location, near Croyde Village and also the beach. Had everything we needed for a large family group ranging from 84 years old to 8 months!



Some good but some poor things

Overall we had a lovely holiday staying at Oyster Cove in Croyde but there were some areas that needed attention. Having had to pay a refundable damage deposit I would have thought the condition of the property would have been pristine but within a few hours we all discovered things that were broken:
1. The carpet into the lounge had worn away by the door so much that the spikes in the gripper bar were exposed. So I had to lay cardboard down to protect our feet
2. Broken toilet seat
3. Showerhead in en-suite broken
4. Lampshade in bedroom broken
There were a few other things and these were all reported as, to be fair to the cleaner, you possibly wouldn’t spot these things unless you were living in the house. Talking of the cleaner, she was very helpful in the days before our stay and managed to get us into the house well before the official time. Even better was the milk, tea, coffee and cake waiting for us. Nice touch, thanks.
The garden was lovely but we had to use the hole in the patio table as a stand for the rotary washing line as there was no hole in the ground anywhere and if you like a secluded garden you won’t get it here as the fences are only 4ft high. The view from our garden was great though as we could just about see Croyde Bay.
The property itself is a long and thin rather than square shaped so is a good layout if you have 6 or more staying as all 3 bedrooms are far apart.
The lounge diner is a nice room and opens onto the garden which was nice.
Overall we would recommend the property but would ask the owners to live in the house for a few days to appreciate the repairs that need attention and maybe identify what additions would make a stay more comfortable - such as surfaces in the bathrooms to put your toiletries.
Finally, thanks to the gardeners who, when they came in to cut the grass found out the variety of lavender that is growing by the patio and left a note. Appreciated that. Thanks.




Excellent accommodation and location in Croyde.

We were a family of 6 adults , 1 child and 1 infant and we found the accommodation excellent. The property is clean and tidy with everything you need and good sized rooms. There is one en-suite , a large family bathroom and a separate WC.
There is a good sized garden , fully enclosed for dogs and a barbecue is provided.
The location is excellent with a shortcut to the beach along a short level path.




Very nice venue close to Croyde village centre

Surprisingly spacious accommodation located 5 minutes walk from Croyde beach and shops. Well specified kitchen, comfy bedrooms and dog proof garden making this an ideal location for our short stay.
Would recommend and will look to stay there again when the surfing bug returns!
Only neutral comments would be 'dog tax' seemed a little excessive, and no negotiation for booking a shorter stay at certain times.

Hi Dan, thanks for the good review and glad you enjoyed your stay at Oyster Cove. The £30.00 for the dog covers the extra cleaning involved when dogs stay but also consider how much it would cost to put your dog in a kennel for a week? Cheers Harry
