Lovely stay didn't want to leave!
Beautifully clean cottage and very well equipped. The views from the garden onto the estuary and the rolling countryside were stunning. Looking at all the stars at night was magical! Oh and the dogs loved it too! Look forward to returning 😊

Up the Creek at Croak
Had an amazing stay at the property. A great location for ease of access to the delights South Hams. The highlight for us was the garden, which leads right down to the estuary where we whiled away happy hours watching ‘creek and bird’ life. A lovely cottage, equipped with everything one might need for a holiday stay.

We had a lovely weekend at Croak Cottage in June 2022. The property is dog friendly, beautifully decorated, clean and tidy, well equipped, with wonderful views across the estuary (lovely summer house to sit in when the weather was a little drizzly). There is a parking space outside which we just about managed to get a T5 Camper on! There's a pub just down the road "The Globe" which serves great food and has a cosy atmosphere (also dog friendly in the bar area). Would definitely return for another visit, thank you :-)

Long weekend break
The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The garden was secure for our dog, who enjoyed her stay as much as us. You could easily spend your time just sitting in the garden watching the creek. There are also beautiful walks from the property. Plus much more to explore in the surrounding area. The local pub serves excellent food and is just 2 minutes walk away.
