The house has been very pleasant to stay at there has obviously been a lot of attention paid to the decor and furnishings. The books, DVDs and games provided all showed a lot of thought for guests. We had a wonderful week at Hillside and would be happy to recommend it. Thank you!

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Hillside. It was a really beautiful house and so well equipped. We were also very fortunate to have wall to wall sunshine for the entire week - how lucky were we?! Please pass on our thanks to the owners as well for letting us have use of their delightful house.

We stayed at Hillside House for a long weekend and thoroughly recommend it. It is a lovely characterful house with lots of space and great views out across the countryside to the sea. It is very well equipped (loved the coffee maker) The house is a 5 minute walk into Braunton and we had a lovely meal there at The Corner Bistro, with fresh fish and meat. The weather was pretty dreadful for us which meant that we got to spend time in front of the fire - not a bad thing - after a rainy beach walk!

Our stay at Hillside was a good experience. The property was spacious and very well equipped both for cooking/eating and entertainment . We had a small problem which occurred during our stay which was dealt with in a very quick manner to our satisfaction.

I liked how family orientated it was with so many extras included like beach stuff and kids toys. The most relaxing property we have stayed in and we have been holidaying in North Devon for years. I dont think we could top this property in this area - which is our favourite part of North Devon, We will be back as simply cant give high enough praise for both CroydeHolidays and the property itself.

House is perfect for big families as there is plenty of space with the garden, two living rooms and a big table in kitchen to seat up to 12. Great kitchen for cooking for a big group. House wasn't as clean as we would of liked, but we were there during the last week of school holidays and end of peak season. Good enough WiFi to stream (e.g. Netflix) and work from the house. Overall would recommend.
