“Great location and facilities”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Located less than 200 yards from the centre of Croyde village and it's amenities - the late opening ice-cream parlour being a particular favourite - The Lookout is very well positioned and the beach can be reached in around a 15 minute walk that is fairly flat and over surfaces largely friendly to the pull along truck that is provided and this is a real asset for getting everything a family is likely to want to the beach.

The converted garage provides a great storage space and the shower here is perfect for washing off all the sand before letting the children loose in the house.

Internally, rooms are adequate rather than generous but for a family of 4 there is everything you need and all furniture is comfortable and in good condition.

Parking can be tricky at times as the road is used as a free parking area by some visitors to the village (some signs detailing 'resident parking only' at the bottom of the road might help with this if they are allowed) and the drive is a tight squeeze for anything but small cards and using the drive also impacts on direct access to the converted garage.

And the garden isn't super child froendly so little ones especially need to be watched on steps and on the edge of the top level with a circa 3ft drop down to the small grassed lower area.

This was our second year at The Lookout and it will definitely be a contender next year should we decide to return to Croyde.

“Just what we needed for this short holiday”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Very well equipped. Good position - 10 minutes walk from beach. Fun playground nearby for little ones.
Really enjoyed the barbecue and in spite of mixed weather we made good sue of it.
Some great extra touches - Second shower room, storage space in garage and lots of toys.

“Fantastic house in North Devon”
Reviewed 14 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at The Lookout. We are a family with 2 young kids and we also had our au pair with us. The house is set up very well, especially with the wet room (i.e. garage) including shower for getting clean and warm after a day at the beach. You can feel that care has been taken to set up the house in the best way possible. We had a problem with the wifi which the owner helped us sort out quickly.
