“Well placed little cottage”
Reviewed 26 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a lovely week at Thatchers Hideaway, perfectly located for a walk into Croyde and to the beach. Ideal location for walking to Baggy Point, Saunton sands, and a long walk to Woolacombe. The cottage is small, with not much room if you have a baby - they need so much stuff! But the cottage was well appointed and the hot tub was well received. The outside area could do with a bit of TLC. The main bedroom is on the mezzanine and so is open plan, and with only one blind on one of the two Velux windows, you will wake at the crack of dawn as it doesn’t stay dark without a blind.
Do walk into Croyde and have a cream tea at the Cream Tearoom on their patio.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 20 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This really is a beautiful cottage, its location is excellent, really nice and peaceful.
The flowers around it were lovely and surprisingly there were dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tea towels, coffee and sugar provided. I think they had also provided milk. Lovely hot tub
Easy walking distance of Croyde village and the Manor House pub and restaurant nearby ( which is excellent).
Beds clean and comfortable, towels provided are better than expected- huge and fluffy! Shower is really excellent as well as really good wi fi.
Only downside is that due to the upper bedroom being a mezzanine, you can hear everything below and also, only one of the velux windows has a blind, so you are awakened really early with the light. Also the patio area looks a bit "tired" and could do with a spruce up.
Overall a lovely cottage with all you could need,but not cheap by any means.

“We loved this cottage so much”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 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 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 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'!
