Lovely place but the narrow entrance was a problem especially after dark.
What a week! Rooftops has been absolutely perfect for my family. It has been a lovely home with everything we have needed. In a great location and fantastic house keepers, amazing beaches, walks and town all around. Thank you Rooftops.
Had a great time. Rooftops provided a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Great views across Braunton. Easy access to the wonderful beaches. Even managed a park run at Woolacombe! Lovely location, tricky driveway with large car. Otherwise can't fault our stay. Thanks Rooftops.
We've had a fantastic holiday! Rooftops is an amazing holiday house, very clean, stunning views, thank you for the wine and goodies! Beautiful beaches, recommend surfing lesson at Woolacombe Bay. We also cycled the Tarka Trail - a definite must do! Crabbing at Appledore (lovely little old village). Braunton Burrows sand dunes were fantastic, never seen anything like them! Fabulous carvery at The William's Arms just down the road (served every day) and Squires for the best fish and chips! We will miss this place, some wonderful memories made.
Everything was great - Very clean!
Rooftops is a lovely spacious house in a great location,
perfect for a family get-together. The house is very comfortable
and well-equipped for self-catering. First class in terms of
cleanliness and the helpful property managers. We were also
delighted to find a wonderful welcome pack waiting for
The access to the driveway is certainly tricky, the smaller of our three cars had no difficulties but the Nissan Leaf and Renault Scenic found it very tight to get into, so some drivers might prefer on road parking.
We have had another lovely stay at Rooftops and this time we broke the record of 61 and got 71 crabs! (at Appledore). Thank you for our welcome pack. Written by Oscar
Such a wonderful place to stay. The light and airy feel is lovely plus the terrace with the views stunning. Walking distance to all the amenities you need. Yes the driveway is tight. I have a mini clubman and I managed to get down the drive ok, wing mirrors in.
Lovely clean property in great location with amazing views. The cleanest property we have stayed in with everything we needed for our stay. Perfect location, easy to walk into Braunton or a short drive to the Burrows, beach & other local attractions.
Thank you for a lovely stay. Fantastic location! House was perfectly clean and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. We will be back!
We had a lovely stay at Rooftops over the past few days. The space was super clean, airy, and comfortable for 4 of us plus our dog. We made full use of the terrace since we had such beautiful weather and our dog absolutely loved running around the large garden! Braunton was a lovely town and only 5 mins walk away, with Saunton Sands just down the road (a beautiful beach)! The housekeepers were super helpful during our stay too. I would recommend Rooftops to anyone. Thank you for a very special stay.
Thank you so much, we had a really lovely weekend.
Tripadvisor Review - wonderful holiday accommodation
Wonderfully clean and equipped house for the family to get together (dogs included), large social areas inside and outside. Rooms are all lovely in decor and comfortable. Liz & Bill were very helpful (via WhatsApp) during our stay. Rooftops is in a great location, views to Appledore and walking distance to the shops. We mainly drove to Braunton Burrows & Saunton Sands for the dog walks as the beach is dog friendly all year round. Great location for sightseeing south or north of Braunton. Two out of three cars managed the driveway fine, the larger car was a bit tight but once the drivers got used to it, they managed fine, just need to take a wider angle to line up straight. Probably not suitable for low bumper cars due to the bump at the top. The only thing we noticed the circular chair was a bit uncomfortable not sure if is meant to tilt or if is broken. Or if it was something we were not used to. The dining chairs inside and outside could do with some seat cushions but we did use the many choices of cushions from the sofas.
Hope to return
Lovely property, spotlessly clean. Amazing views. Made good use of outdoor space because of fantastic sunny weather! Very well equipped with everything we needed for a fabulous family holiday (4 adults 3 girls and a cockapoo!). Hope to return
Rooftops is a well equipped holiday home and in a great location.

Absolutely amazing stay. House was beautiful, exactly like in the photos. Very cosy but spacious! Would defo book again. 10/10
Very modern, clean, bright and warm.
Great property managers and welcome pack. Wonderful views which I imagine are more spectacular in spring and summer. Good secure garden for the dogs and excellent outdoor seating area making the most of the garden and views with easy access from the house. Shame we didn't get to enjoy the benefit of it being the depths of winter.
Had a pleasant stay over Christmas 2022. The property was spotlessly clean and we found the housekeepers friendly and helpful. The accommodation is light and airy, the kitchen is large and well equipped, all bedrooms are good sizes and offer plenty of storage. We found the sitting room slightly smaller than expected and was a bit of a squeeze for all 6 of us to sit comfortably, but the sofas are super comfy and the wood burner was fab. The garden and terrace are very nice and having parking for 3 cars was great.
Just the best weekend
such a fabulous house in a great location. So comfy and well equipped - we have loved every minute. Thank you!
Absolutely perfect, nothing wrong and everything was supplied.
Everything clean and tidy, excellent kitchen, more than what was expected. What improvements do you feel the owners could make to enhance it? Keep it as it is
We had a fantastic week, the property is superbly maintained and well stocked. It worked really well for young and old. Bill and Liz are the best and were really quick and dedicated in responding to the two asks we had. I didn't realise how fab the beaches are too. We had our dog and she loved it in Oct, if you time it for rain showers it's a great time of year, no crowds. Braunton has lots of options as well. Recommend rising sun pub in lynmouth too. Many thx dom
This is our second stay at Rooftops and we have had an amazing week. We loved crabbing at Appledore and we caught 61 crabs! Hopefully we'll be back next year.
We loved the light, airy coastal feel to this property. The children enjoyed the well-stocked games cupboard and the garden. We liked the veranda with bi-folds, the view and the ease of feeling like we were in a home from home. We can't find fault with this property. We think you have done an amazing job!
Lovely accommodation. Very clean, wonderful views, had a lovely week's holiday. Won't miss the driveway lol! Would love to come back again. Watermouth Castle a great day enjoyed by us all and the Tunnels beaches. Thank you
Great accommodation, location and neighbours!!
Rooftops was a lovely holiday home and very well equipped. All the rooms were lovely. Sorry to leave.
We had a wonderful stay at Rooftops.
Possibly the cleanest property I've ever stayed in. Very practical home for our family with two toddlers. Very comfortable with lovely views, lots of natural light and a very big sociable space. We really did have a great week.
Myself and 5 friends stayed at this accommodation for my birthday and I really recommend it as it was the best birthday I've ever had, really easy to get around and the local towns and beaches are really beautiful ! So definitely a place to consider again !
Perfect house for my family and elderly mother. Very lucky with the weather. Braunton really nice town. Thank you so much.
We came for a family event so to have such organised clean beautiful accommodation was one less thing for us to worry about The beautiful views and calm environment were appreciated by all our family young to older ! The support communication and information pre stay was excellent. Hope to stay again when more time to appreciate the local area
Rooftops is a super!
Well equipped property with fantastic views across Braunton, to the dunes and beyond to Appledore if it's a clear day. We were visiting family who live in Braunton and the property was in a great location for an easy walk into town. Great that it was dog friendly too - our spaniel loved the secure garden to run around in. The log burner was a huge bonus and helped when we snuggled down after a day out. I'm sure we'll be back to stay again. Thank you.
Lovely stay, comfy beds, plenty of hot water, stunning views! Amazing house, felt like coming home. Birthday celebrations, what a treat. Life-long mates, huge laughs, memories, stunning walks, bubbles, hot tub, great food and the best company. Thank you. Best place to celebrate. House is fantastic, top quality, amazing views, stunning walks, so much to do - sad to leave.
Charming and well equipped cottage in a great location.
Well looked after property. Housekeepers excellent and
really responsive to any issues that came up. Driveway is 'as
Can't fault cleanliness throughout.
A Great Stay!
We had a great stay at Rooftops. Great location. The narrow access road is very tight. We managed to get one car down it but not the other. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. Very close to Saunton Sands and Woolacombe beaches which were beautiful. Good communication from the property managers. Overall, a great stay.
The property was immaculate and very clean.
Lovely chalet bungalow, very well presented, immaculate and well equipped. A real home from home and extremely comfortable. Couldn't fault the accommodation and we had a lovely family get-together. The weather was amazing for an October holiday and we made good use of the terrace. Will definitely visit in the future as such a good location for day trips and visiting the many lovely beaches. Only issue was the very tight driveway to the property, if you have a large car this can be a bit of a challenge.
The house is beautifully equipped with everything you need - all furnishings are comfortable and kitchen equipment is of a very high standard. Lovely open plan and spacious so great for a family and the location is superb.
Thank you for the beautifully equipped home. We loved our stay although the weather was sadly unpleasant. Would recommend Gordons Bar and The Thatch in Croyde
The best holiday home ever!
We had a fabulous week here at Rooftops, great facilities, great location and a great big comfy chair that everyone fought over! We had great fun horse riding, surfing and spending the rest of the week recovering from achey legs! Would recommend Saunton Sands (beautiful beach), Clovelly (beautiful little fishing village) and the George Inn does pretty good food too. All round a fantastic trip, thanks for such a great place to stay! Would love to come back x
It is a wonderful place. I love it here at Rooftops. It has been great, thank you! (Hollie Cheetham)
We had a lovely week at Rooftops enjoying the lovely location and amazing beach Saunton Sands. We came with our 15 week old puppy who enjoyed the lovely walks. Our week was spent long hours surfing and sunbathing. Thank you for such a good holiday!
Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday…
amazing design and perfect location. I would recommend bike rides, beach visits and walks in to town. Rooftops rocks ���� xxx
We have had a wonderful holiday.
We give Rooftops 10/10 and want to come again. By Oscar (age 6)
The property has been just what we were looking for - lovely, great location, fantastic views. We are hoping to return next year. Thank you!
Super week enjoying the coast in North Devon. Thank you for preparing the house to be so clean on arrival. We enjoyed all our meals on the terrace taking in the rooftop views!
Perfect holiday, location and views incredible, gorgeous weather. Saunton Sands simply stunning. Shame about the England result! Will recommend to others for sure. We will be back!
We had an incredible time at Rooftops.
The facilities and house in general were excellent and the service from the cleaner was always prompt and friendly. The access to the house is tight but it's all good fun and an experience if nothing else! The house is very well equipped and the open plan living space made for a great family holiday.
Lovely bright open house - nice and clean.
Views amazing - great location.
Very noisy - can hear everything all over the house - sound really travels.
Would recommend website describes the entry to the property better. Less experienced drivers will definitely struggle - not just with the width of the lane but the turning into it is very difficult.
Had a lovely week away.
Lucked out with amazing weather! Great views from the terrace and excellent facilities. The toaster got us a few times but successfully navigated the lane!
We will definitely come again.
Liked the kitchen. Had all the utensils we would need. Very clean when we arrived and lovely to have somewhere to take the dog. Very comfortable lounge area. Big window to the view was brilliant. Thank you so much. We will definitely come again.
Wonderful property, close to local amenities, beaches and attractions.
The house is dog friendly & completely dog secure with
a fantastic large garden for both children & animals. The house
is superbly well equipped & the owners have thought of
everything you would need to make your stay comfortable &
enjoyable. We hired in a hot tub which was set up on the sun deck -
with the help of Rachel at Croyde Holidays (who was exceptionally
helpful!). House was immaculately clean & very Covid
The log burner is a fantastic asset & perfect to relax infront of to enjoy the wonderful views below. Ideal for families or couples wanting a bit more room. The kitchen has everything you need to cook & there are a handful of places that also deliver food to you.
Access to the house is down a narrow lane, we had a medium family car - if you take this steady & approach with caution this caused us no issues whatsoever.
It was just perfect for our needs.
Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely birthday treats you left for me at Rooftops! It's been a rubbish year to have a 50th birthday but you made my much needed trip away with the family feel super special. We had such a fantastic relaxing time at Rooftops. What a beautiful house. It was just perfect for our needs. The weather was amazing as well so we had evenings on the decking playing cards with a nice glass of red. Hope you and the family are doing well in these strange times. PS: we'll be back to Rooftops
We have just returned from a lovely week in Devon. Location was central for exploring North Devon. The house was beautiful and stylish with a lovely sized garden. Felt very welcoming
Absolutely beautiful property would highly recommend. Ideal location for getting around to visit different places. Very spacious & spotlessly clean. I can't recommend this property enough. Nearby to local shops / restaurants & beaches.
Thank you so much for a lovely weekend.
The house has everything you could need and we have loved playing games at the table with the fire on in the background. Really looking forward to coming back again xx
Lovely property in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay. It's a great place to easily access the coast (just a short drive) and walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. Great views from the property to just sit back and watch the sunset. Thank you
Online Review ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Pros: - Beautiful living space - Easy access to beaches - Good Communication from managers - Well presented - Great patio area Cons: - Narrow Driveway - Not a problem but not for people with large cars who aren't confident drivers - Noise - open plan layout means noise travels around house
We had a really lovely stay at Rooftops.
The information prior to arrival was helpful and accurate. I had high expectations and it didn't disappoint. Comfy beds, good pillows, nice bed linen, spotlessly clean, well equipped kitchen and a lovely log burner we could use which was perfect for our wet October weekend. A short walk from good restaurants in Braunton (recommend the riverside). Perfect base for a weekend away in North Devon for my friends (group of ladies aged 30-40). I would happily stay here again. Thanks for a lovely place to stay.
3rd Visit !!
We have had a fantastic time during our third stay at Rooftops. A wonderful house for a family holiday.
Tripadvisor 5 STAR Review - " Perfect family home"
Rooftops is an amazingly well presented home, offering comfort and convenience for everyone. The kitchen has everything in it that you would at home - loved the Dualit Kettle and toaster! The bifold doors opening onto the patio make outside eating so easy - the deck becomes just an extension of the kitchen/diner. The upstairs bathroom has a shower and separate bath, which is deep and comfortable - always loads of hot water! The drive is fine if you approach it dead straight - have someone see you down if you are worried (we were in a BMW X3). Lots of room for parking and turning next to the house. The house keepers do a brilliant job in keeping it sparkly clean - thank you, one of the best rentals we've stayed in for a long while!
We had a fantastic time at Rooftops and will definitely return at some point!
The house is beautiful and we got a lot of use out of the balcony and barbeque! We would recommend Crow Point (our favourite beach), the fish and chip shop next to the butchers on the high street, also Braunton Burrows for a lovely walk.
We all have truly enjoyed our stay at Rooftops. We don't want to leave! As previously mentioned by numerous guests, the facilities at Rooftops have been great. We would recommend the beach hut hire on Saunton Beach and Ilfracombe Aquarium for the kids on a rainy day. Riverside Café and Squires fish shop - delicious food! Goodbye Rooftops - not forgetting the challenging driveway!!! (sorry had to mention it) ☹
Superb stay at Rooftops, amazing views, great facilities.
We loved the bifold doors giving loads of outdoor space. Ideally located to visit Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton beaches. Fish and chips from Squires was a must, also an enjoyable meal at SQ bar and restaurant. Room for three cars to park, bit tight down the lane but accessed with caution. Fantastic holiday for our family of 7, would love to come back another year. Thank you ����
For our party, it was perfect, and we just hope we can get to stay again, amazing holiday home.
JUST PERFECT. The bedrooms, the showers, kitchen packed with everything you would ever need. Great Toy/DVD cupboard. Great garden. Ample parking. Near enough to walk to shops and restaurants. THE VIEW!!
