OVERVIEW

We can't think of a more fitting setting for that group gathering you've been meaning to organise than Streamways Forda. Well positioned for accessing North Devons beaches and attractions. This spacious bungalow is a home from home and sleeps up to Sixteen guests. With a stylish décor throughout, yet offering thoughtful features that mean you can enjoy time as a group, yet still benefit from your own space with two living rooms and a secluded cabin.

The living area has space for the whole group to curl up and chat by the glow of the log burner, and there's a second living area too, so there's plenty of space to settle down for a catch up over a glass of bubbly. For those special meals with the group, you'll find a kitchen to inspire even the most reluctant of cooks. When it's time to unwind, the bubbling hot tub* outside makes the perfect way to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside and chat under the stars.

A STEP INTO HISTORY

Built in 1907 by George Style a reputed millionaire who gifted the house to the parish as a drill hall (Village hall) and miniature rifle range which was short lived as in the early part of 1920 it was converted into a dwelling by an artist who exhibited at the Royal Academy in Paris salon and in the Provinces, In 1927 the house was sold and renamed "Streamways" because of the sound of the valley stream  and its legacy lives on....

Where to begin....The house is amazing!

Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating
The house looked amazing the moment we saw it, it exceeded our expectations. After settling we had a meal in the Kings Arms which was out of this world, the service was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub & BBQ. 5 stars would definitely recommend this lovely holiday home and are looking to re book in November.

TRIPADVISOR REVIEW: What a fantastic place to stay

Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating
Just come back from a long weekend at Streamways House near Croyde. Wasn't quite sure what to expect before we arrived, as we booked before all the photo's were on-line. Have to say I was very pleasantly surprised when we went in. The house is furnished and decorated to a very high standard, with about as good a kitchen as you could ever want. Even though the weather wasn't brilliant whilst we were there, we made good use of the hot-tub, perfect for relaxing after a long day! Steve & Kat, who own the house also own the Kings Arms in nearby Georgeham, and made us very welcome there, and they do a very good Sunday lunch. An added bonus to the accommodation was the beautifully furnished cabin in the garden, which was perfect for banishing the snorer of the group to! Only thing I need to do now is find an excuse for another weekend in Croyde!

Streamways is a good size with plenty of space for large families.

Eleven family and friends, we've had a lovely time despite the poor weather which meant we were unable to get full use of the outdoor facilities, though the hot tub had lots of use and we got out and about as we know North Devon well. Kitchen well equipped and we made full use of it. We had a great late lunch at The Manor which was lovely. Thank you

pleasantly surprised on arrival,it was so lovely and cosy. Property was very clean and fresh on arrival, very happy with the service. Plenty of space and property was very well equipped. Also a lovely touch to have the drinks in the fridge for us as well as the 2 christmas trees which were beautiful.

We were lucky and had great weather, so went to all the local beaches (a real plus that our dog was allowed on most of them) We really enjoyed the house and 'grew' into it during the week. Fantastic Sunday lunch at The Kings Arms Georgeham, beautiful food and welcoming staff. Thank you

TRIPADVISOR REVIEW: Enough space for 4 generations of family, plus the dog!

Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating
This property is ideal for large gatherings. The accommodation is well laid out, with large sitting rooms at either end, The annex in the garden was ideal for the great grandparents to enjoy the holiday but have their own space to rest and relax. Kitchen facilities are spacious and well equipped. We were lucky to have good weather, most of the local beaches are dog friendly (Puttesborough and Saunton were favourites), which was a real treat. The Kings Arms is within walking distance, a warm and characterful pub serving excellent food, highly recommended.

Steve was on hand to sort out a few teething problems. The lounges are huge and well heated with the log burners. Bedrooms are all of a decent size and the annexe was lovely. Great location to explore Croyde and the surrounding area. Would definitely recommend!

Came here to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family and the 2 dogs. The first hour was spent running around screaming at how lovely the house and gardens are. Hot tub - Lush!! We couldn't want or need anything from the house, everything was thought of. Everybody loved the house, the decor and the DVDS. Sunday lunch at the Kings arms, very good, Great beaches, great body boarding, great days out. All in All a great time was had by all, with many thanks. Would be great to come back.

5 STAR Tripadvisor Review - "The perfect great escape!”

Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating
Streamways was nothing short of fantastic, if you still need convincing then by all means continue on. We booked 16 people and three loyal pooches in for a short weekend break to celebrate my 30th Birthday, our only real need was comfort and space which Streamways had by the bucket. When we arrived we were greeted with much much more. Being such a large group with people coming from all over I was initially worried about parking, as we pulled in we found space not only for the 6 cars on their way but probably for another 4 behind them. The outside area was ample and offered a space for all tastes, a paved breakfast area, hot tub area and garden all within a social distance of the each other and all well maintained. Entering the house we were very pleasantly surprised to find it furnished and decorated to such a high standard, we felt instantly at home. The bedrooms are well sized and well spaced, no one felt crammed in or cattled and the bathrooms were immaculate and inviting. For many the revelation of a lovely large bathtub was an absolute luxury. The kitchen was roomy and social with 6 gas hobs and ovens galore our catering stress was non existent. Streamways provided ample cooking utensils and trays and various other kitchen delights that made settling in painless. There are two living rooms at the property both with their own unique charm, the first by the front door is a cosy little comfort haven with two large sofas and a central feature fireplace, perfect for an evening tipple and warming your toes. The second living room is an open exposed beam social dream. Three large comfortable sofas, a double breakfast table, adjoining balcony with outside seating and an entertainment system. We spent most of our holiday here! Whilst our friends hunkered down in their main house bedrooms I tottered off to the guesthouse, if you are the lead booking don't debate on which room you would like... this is the one for you. Situated just behind the garden is a French sliding door retreat, complete with en suite shower and toilet. It was cosy, welcoming and a luxury. Streamways provide many photos on their website and no room was a shock or "not as advertised", what you see is exactly what you get. As for the location, Streamways advertises and "near Croyde" and whilst I understand that the address does not say Croyde on it, this is almost a disservice to it as the sign post is 10 seconds down the hill. We are all surfers or beach lovers and visited both Croyde beach and Putsborough on our stay, both of which were beautiful, though Putsborough was definitely a favourite even in the sea mist! We only had one hiccup at the house and that was the gas for the BBQ was a bit low, I dropped a message to Steve our property manager and within 30 minutes he arrived with a new full canister and some very friendly conversation about the local area and surfing! As we all left most people had only two comments, "do we really have to go" and "so we are going to book your 31st here yes?". We loved every second and we will most certainly book again!
