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!!
Amazing stay here at Rooftops!
Brilliant location, excellent facilities. Even the narrow access road added to our fun. We would definitely return. Thank you.
