About the property

Croyde Barn, Croyde, North Devon, England - Located in the Centre of Croyde

Croyde Barn is probably one of the highest specification holiday homes in Croyde, Grade II listed from the outside, uber contemporary on the inside. Each of the four bedrooms is ensuite and has a flat screen TV. Sleeps 8 with an optional sofa bed for an extra 1. The master bedroom has a Roman style bath. The kitchen is also super high spec, with 3 ovens, gloss grey units, finished with orange Corian work surfaces. You can enjoy your food in the adjoining open plan vaulted dining room, the lounge or alfresco on the BBQ terrace. But you can consider all the kitchen/dining area as just cool aesthetics and not lift a finger to cook during your stay as Croyde has three pubs, a bistro, cafe and numerous other eateries all within walking distance. It's a great village right on the coast with an easy surf-style vibe. But whilst the house is right in the village, you'll still be able to enjoy peace and quiet in the back garden.

Notes on accommodation:

As a general rule, we don't take pets, but please contact us if you wish to discuss this. There is no smoking allowed inside the house.


Outside the lounge is paved with slate flags leading round to a teak decked terrace with table and chairs and BBQ. Steps then lead to a lawned terrace. All perfect for al fresco dining morning, noon and night. Beyond the garden are open fields leading up to the hills around Croyde. There is parking for up to four cars.

Utility Room:

Washing machine, tumble drier, iron, ironing board. This room also stores the high chairs (2), travel cots (2), stair gates (2) as well as the vacuum cleaner and other cleaning equipment.

Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service:

White linen is provided and all beds will be made up for your arrival. Each guest will be provided with a bath and hand towel. On two week holidays a mid-stay housekeeping service is offered with fresh bed linen.


Dining Room: open to the kitchen with slate floor and vaulted ceiling. This room also has a dining table/chairs, sofas and flat screen TV. The master bedroom is off a mezzanine over the kitchen/dining area.

Why Justin Burt chose Croyde

Croyde has a great vibe both on the beach and in the village so I couldn't imagine a better place to have a holiday home. The barn has been totally renovated so that it retains its character on the outside, but has that contemporary edge on the inside.

Beautiful house for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful conversion with everything a group of 9 friends (plus dog) needed for a long weekend. Rooms and bathrooms were great, kitchen was fully stocked with equipment and the outdoor space was perfect to spend sunny days on.

The owner was great, very easy to communicate with and we managed to check-in a bit early so we could watch the all important England World Cup game!

The only criticism was the lack of blinds on communal space windows which affected the light entering 2 of the rooms first thing in the morning and also the house got very hot at night (although we were visiting during a heatwave!)

Apart from that, it was a lovely weekend, in a perfect location...would definitely recommend!

A modern take on a holiday home.

  • 4 of 5

This barn holiday home offers excellent accomodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had some minor issues.

One was ventilation is the downstairs bedroom. The door couldn't be left open to the outside for security reasons and the bathroom window had no lock on it so could be opened from outside if left ajar.

A lack of lighting for bedside reading.

Bathroom lighting was overly complicated and in some areas did not work.

The steps leading from the entry door were a little hazardous for those who have any mobilty problems. A hand rail of some sort would be an excellent improvement.

The T.V.s were all possitioned a little too high.

This sounds like a lot of commplaints but we really did enjoy our stay and this is a lovely holiday home. Thank you.

Lovely accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in July. The property was easy to find, with adequate parking for 4 cars. The location is excellent - within a minute walk of Croyde's centre, with plenty of choice of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, and direct access down a lane to Croyde beach.

The property is mostly well maintained. The living accommodation is very spacious. The kitchen is very well equiped.

I have 2 suggestions for improvements:

1. The TVs in the lounge and dining room are placed very high on the walls. In the lounge especially it would be better to have the TV lower down on the opposite wall. It wasn't comfortable trying to watch Wimbledon with the TV up so high.

2. The downstairs bedroom needs to have a decent fan available. It was very warm when we stayed, which was great for our holiday, but it was quite uncomfortable at night. We couldn't leave the doors or bathroom window open at night for obvious security reasons, so it was a little bit like sleeping in a sauna! The mezzanine level bedroom could do with a fan too, as there isn't a window in the bedroom (just a velux in the bathroom).

All in all we had a fabulous weekend, and we would definitely consider staying at the barn again.

Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is gorgeous. I booked this for myself and a group of friends, and we were all speechless when we arrived and had a look round! We stayed for 3 nights and loved every minute. Location is fantastic only a couple of minutes walk to the small village of Croyde, 10 minute walk to the beach. We loved the garden and decked area, it gets loads of sun so was brilliant for sitting around chatting and having a drink. The kitchen was amazing, had everything you could possibly need. Beds were really comfortable and every room had its own en suite which was fantastic! I would 110% recommend this property and the owner Justin was brilliant to deal with, really helpful and really friendly. I will definitely be booking this again at some point in the future. This was hands down the best self catering property I have ever stayed in.

Fantastic stay at Croyde barn!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Croyde barn and are regular visitors to Croyde, this is the best house we have stayed in! The house was a very large size and had everything you would want/needed inside and out! It is also centrally located and within walking distance to everything! Would recommend to anyone and will be returning in the future ourselves!
