Beautiful cottage with lots of original features. However looking a bit worn. Comfortable beds and lovely linen. 10 minute walk to the village but beware the road can be quite busy. Stunning views from the top terrace of the garden.

The cottage was perfect for us, thank you.

We were a group of 4, who wanted a separate bedroom each. The cottage was perfect for us, just the right size. The location is good d, not far from shops and pubs. There's everything we needed in the cottage. The top decking area is a great place to have coffee in the morning. Can highly recommend.

Nice cottage in good location- a few little things would improve it

Proximity to beach nice surroundings to walk from door and into Croyde centre comfortable beds very clean nice and big towels! Great to have utility room for dogs and for sorting wetsuits etc good amount of cups/ plates/ oven trays/ pans/ cutlery etc for self catering good communication around arrival/ heating not working at one point and house keeper replied immediately. Blankets could do with a wash in living room as smelt a bit musty. kitchen knives really need sharpening and a whisk would be helpful

Lovely stay at the cottage. Great location with a 5 minute walk to the centre of Croyde. It's very cosy and spacious for larger groups. The fire made an excellent winter addition,". Just be mindful of the early check out but there is an option for a late check out for an extra fee.

We had a fantastic weekend stay

A great place for a family gathering not too far from the centre of Croyde. Very spacious and clean. Really pleased we had the option to pay and stay until the evening rather than the Sunday morning.

Lots of great walks to Saunton sands over the hills and back along the coastal path, Heddon Valley to Woody Bay, Woolacombe to Putsborough and back along the beach. Recommend the Blue Groove for great food! Thanks

Fantastic Stay!

Fantastic stay at Berry Cottage we all had a lovely week. Highly recommended The Thatch for gorgeous food. Ralph surf shop in Croyde was very helpful with all the surf equipment. Would recommend the walk from Croyde to Baggy Point, beautiful views. Will definitely come back in the future.

Completely fine - everything you need but doesn't feel like a loved place. On a busy road so caution needed getting babies and dogs out.

We hope to visit again!

Stayed at Berry Cottage with a group of girlfriends and had a great time. The cottage is very clean, warm and cosy with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Location is great. An end terrace right on the edge of the village but still within easy walking distance of Croyde village and beach. We hope to visit again!

Thank you for a lovely comfortable stay.

A charming little cottage with a lovely garden and everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The cottage was warm and had everything we could possibly need! The little welcome pack upon arrival was a kind touch.Just a short walk into Croyde village for necessities, beach walks, surfing, and country pubs! Would highly recommend.

Everything was nice and clean when we arrived.

Six adults and two cockapoos had a lovely week at Berry Cottage.  Thanks so much for arranging sunshine every day in mid October!  Great to be able to walk to the pubs and beach in Croyde.

The facilities are fine in the cottage once you discover the hidden downstairs toilet and shower. The beds and sofas are very comfy. Even the sofa bed! It really needs a coffee table or in the lounge as there is nothing but the floor to put things on. The stairs are a bit dangerous. Watch the bottom step. It is disguised and easy to trip down. Getting in and out of the car park is also a bit scary as it's hard to see ht is coming round the bends. The best of the two terraces outside is up 40 steps but worth it when you get there :). The one just outside the second floor landing is quite nice though. It's a medium walk to Croyde village (10 mins) and a longish walk to the beach. (20 mins)

Thanks for a fab trip!

We loved staying in Berry Cottage! It's really well equipped and cosy but also spacious. The garden is quirky but lovely for sitting in with great views. It's close to Croyde but is a tricky walk with kids!  We'll look to book with you again next year!

Fantastic cottage, really clean, cosy loved the fire, the kitchen had every cooking utensil you would need, loads of crockery and wine glasses. The only thing to watch for is the road can be busy early so you do hear the traffic in the front rooms and the garden is on levels so not great for elderly dogs or small children

Spacious yet warm and cosy feel.

Pleasantly surprised by the size, warm cosy feel and would definitely stay here again.  Ideal location with only a short walk to the main village, plenty of parking, plenty of sleeping/bed spaces and would be ideal for groups. Living space was decent and showers were nice and hot.

The cottage had more than we excepted. Berry cottage is a beautiful cosy and very comfortable cottage. There were games  in the snug room which we as a family had a lot of fun playing.  Lots of added extras. It is a bit of a walk down to the beach but a very pretty and lovely walk down, Great value for money considering the size of cottage and location.  We loved it.

Thanks we had an amazing week.

The cottage was more than equipped for our needs, made an for an amazing week with my 23 & 20 year old children who both came with their partners. Plenty of space not to be under each other’s feet. A little 10 minute walk to the village would advise torches if you go in the evening, these were provided at the cottage. Plenty of off road parking was very convenient. Hot tub booking was easy and straight forward all sorted beforehand. Vicky the property manager was very very helpful and happy to help at anytime.

Tripadvisor 5 STAR Review - " Incredible Place"

Stayed this September from Montreal, Canada. So greatful for our time at the idyllic Berry cottage. Very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Could not have asked for more. Lovely restaurants nearby and the beach (which is a 15 minute walk) was one of the best I have been to in England. We will definitely be returning.

Had a wonderful stay at Berry Cottage. It has lots of character and has been done up to a good standard. Perfectly well equipped and the location is ideal being only a few minutes walk from the village centre. Particularly enjoyed the view of Lundy from the top of the garden. Fun for all the family and we'd love to go back. Thanks to all concerned

Tripadvisor 3 STAR Review - " Fantastic Location"

Fantastic location for amenities and surfing beach. Lovely old cottage but it did need some maintenance: walls needed painting broken decking, tap in kitchen and showers leaked and our bed (which was a sofa bed) wasn't made on arrival. It's a shame as the cottage was lovely but just needed some TLC

The cottage was fabulous and the facilities exceeded our expectations.

We had such a wonderful stay at Berry Cottage. The welcome basket provided was a pleasant surprise and was most welcome after a long journey. Such thoughtful additions such as the camping chairs, bodyboards, etc were most unexpected but such welcome touches. We will definitely be returning to Berry Cottage.

Definitely recommend the place!

A group of Friends and family stayed in the cottage and we absolutely loved it. It was perfect size for us and 9 people slept very well, most if not all beds had 2 pillows and a nice comfortable and clean duvet. The living room is very nice and homey and the kitchen was perfect with a long table that fitted everyone for that nice family dinner and also with quite a few nicely organised appliances and everything you need to cook your family a nice meal! The outside garden was very nice too which provided for a great sunset view but probably more enjoyable in the summer time :) Both Bathrooms were very nice and clean and towels were provided for all guests.

Lovely cottage and location! Best cottage 10-10

Had some lovely walks along the beach but also did a few further out activities such as the rock climbing and air extreme trampoline place. We also went for a couple of meals out and would recommend the restaurants and pubs in Croyde which are just along the road! Great night sleeps all round. Garden is perfect for a BBQ in the sun, Thanks so much.

A lovely place to spend Christmas !

Such a 'home from home' - Our family had everything we could need for a fantastic Christmas, Plenty of space, a well equipped kitchen, a chimney for Santa and a short walk to the village. We especially appriciated the decorations and welcome pack! Can recommend Croyde beach, Putsborough beach and Baggy Point for young children through the PD lodges next to the beach car park. Thank you for a lovely stay.
