CROYDE THATCHERS HIDEAWAY OVERVIEW
If you’re looking for a quaint, quiet escape, but within walking distance of a bustling village and beautiful beach, then this is the cottage for you. This lovely semi-detached stone cottage is one of three recently constructed period-style cottages that nestle in the grounds of a 16th Century thatched Devon Longhouse and is only a very short stroll to the heart of the village as well as the path to the fabulous beach of Croyde Bay. Natural light is aplenty provided by the velux windows, with stunning views over the surrounding tranquil countryside.
Guests of Thatchers Hideaway Cottage enjoy a 25% Discount on the hire of Surfboards and Wetsuits etc. at CROYDE SURF SHOP (Littlepinkshop). Equipment may be booked in advance at www.croyde-surf-hire.co.uk (25% discount code on request)
Croyde is a charming little seaside village, with a variety of restaurants, shops and pubs in the area, along with it’s very own Post Office. Many parts of the village date back to the 17th Century and a lot of the buildings built in that time are still standing around the village today and is home to one of the best surfboard and body board beaches in the South West. The beach is privately owned and has lifeguards patrols over the summer season. Croyde is also home to the National Trust’s Baggy Point, these provide delightful walking with excellent coastal views. Cycling, horse riding, golf and tennis are all available locally. The village is also very close to Braunton, Saunton, Putsborough, Barnstaple and Woolacombe, providing all you need for a great holiday. You’re close to the famous Tarka Trail to cycle around North Devon along the old Railway lines or have a walk on the North Devon Coast Path
The open plan living room with kitchen and dining area is bright, light and spacious. This sociable space is enhanced by the high vaulted ceiling, comfortable sofas, cosy chairs and wood burning stove for snug nights in.

Great Cottage, country pub just around the corner. Village and beach within easy walking distance. I would recommend the circular walk around baggy point to puttsbrough and back to the cottage via Coombs Lane.

Amazing position and everything you need, Shower was amazing! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there!
On Monday, 02 Nov 2020
Very impressed Netflix was included. A pity that there was not a shower upstairs as seems to be enough room for one, even electric shower. Impressed with amount of crockery, cutlery etc, Lovely that the bed that we were not using was still made to keep overall look of room nice. Really warm and comfortable, we had a great stay.

“Thatchers Cottage is a great location for visiting North Devon. Walking distance to Croyde Beach, pubs and shops with other local beaches a short drive away. The cottage had everything we needed for a weeks walking holiday. The hot tub was a great addition as it allowed us to unwind outside even in the cold January weather. We sat in it and watched the sunrise and sunset on a daily basis! Bliss!”

We loved our time at the Thatchers Hideaway cottage. The cottage was beautiful and cosy. They even added a Christmas tree which made it feel more festive. Overall we loved it and all said that we would love to move there.

“We loved this cottage so much”
Reviewed on Trip Advisor August 11th, 2015
As we walked down the path and saw the cottage for the first time we were thrilled with our choice. Peaceful location in lovely Croyde but just 5 mins walk to nearest pub and 10 mins to shops, other pubs/restaurants and the fab ice cream shop.
We found the walk up the lane to Putsborough beach and although lane is muddy at times, you can paddle in the Ford at the end to clean your shoes or toes! Only 20 mins til on the beautiful beach. We explored as many coastal walks and pathways as we could find and the walk to Baggy Point was great. We had to keep dogs on lead at all times because of sheep or roads but Putsborough is a dog friendly beach so could run them there.
The hot tub was great especially as the weather was a bit unkind to us and if you sit in the tub at 9pm you can watch the bats flying - a wonderful memory. Good Wi-Fi too so teens happy!
Fab little cottage and only thing we'd ask for is for fresh towels mid-week as we had bath towels and beach towels drying/ airing inside due to rain.
A great find - clean, well equipped, cosy and quaint. We loved it.

“A perfect hideaway!”
Reviewed on Trip Advisor June 7th, 2015
We stayed at Thatchers Hideaway for three nights over a bank holiday weekend, and we couldn't have asked for a more ideal rental property.
The location is perfect, tucked out of the way to be nice and quiet but only a short stroll into the village (it's hard to find the first time so make sure you follow the instructions you get sent once you've booked). We stayed with our two dogs and I loved that we could step out of the front door and follow the lane up and onto countryside for a walk over to Saunton Sands. Also, just across the road is another bridleway which you can follow to walk to Putsborough Beach and Woolacombe.
The property was very clean and comfortable and kitted out with everything you need - salt, pepper, TV, Wifi, Playstation and games, even a few tea bags and some coffee. Only thing they could have done with is some washing up liquid and a few more toilet rolls (although I realise that these aren't always provided with a lot of rentals). Like a lot of the local rental properties there is a keysafe meaning you can turn up on the day of arrival at anytime.
The information pack that had been carefully put together by the property owners was really useful and had lots of local information (also quite amusing).
There was an open fire, which we didn't actually need to use because the central heating was nice and warm (so nice to stay somewhere where you're allowed to changed the thermostat!).
If there was any downside to this property, it would only be that because it's on the end of a terrace of three cottages, you get the neighbours in the rental cottage next door walking past the windows - bit of a pain when our dogs love to bark at 'trespassers'!

We had a lovely Weekend at Thatchers Hideaway. Minus 3 outside but we were lovely and warm, didn't get around to even lighting the Woodburner! We did have lovely meal in front the fire in the Manor Pub though.. Gorgeous day on Sunday, walked the dog through Combas lane to Putsborough, took just 20mins to get there. Coffee on the patio when we got back. We love the Cottage and sure you will too!
