Gorgeously charming period cottage with large amounts of outside space. Perfectly located to the beach and local restaurants in Croyde village. Just returned from a lovely relaxing two weeks holiday and would highly recommend stating at St Helens cottage. A very big thank you to Vicki the property manager who could not have been more helpful during our stay.

A great cottage in a small, but beautiful village.

Excellent family holiday. Croyde was smaller than we were expecting, but it has everything you need - several pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. All were dog and kid friendly, which was great for our family holiday. And the beach was just a 10 minute walk away.
