Self-catering Holidays in Croyde
Endless Summer Beach House has been designed with beach-loving families in mind. The layout comfortably accommodates self catering family groups of up to 10 people. Large or extended families will enjoy being so near the beach and with beautiful surroundings. The focal living space is a large, bright open plan space with large glass picture windows to make the most of the afternoon sun and sea view. A second living room allows guests to spread out and children can have their own space.
Main Living Room
A large triple-aspect living room fitted with large sofas and footstools, with two sets of french doors leading out onto the garden with views to the dunes and sea. For entertainment there is a 40″ LCD TV with satellite channels, DVD player with a selection of films and Bluetooth HiFi system. For the evenings, the lounge also features an ‘Opti-myst’ fireplace with real flame effect.
The dining area has an extendable table and chairs seating 10. Above this, one of our old surfboards now provides dimmable lighting to suit the occasion.
2nd Living Room
From the main living area there is a door through to a separate, triple-aspect second living room with its own french doors to the garden. Here we have provided a 28″ TV with FreeView and FreeSat, DVD player with DVDs and Xbox with games. There’s a comfortable sofa and two arm chairs, books, board games and a selection of children’s toys. This is a light and airy room with views to the garden and the sea beyond. Great for children to have their own space to play or for the older generation to relax with a good book.
Enjoy socialising and views of the garden whilst preparing food and drinks in the open plan kitchen with its glass breakfast bar and two swivel stools. The fully fitted modern gloss white kitchen has a new built-in electric cooker with double oven and grill, dishwasher and spacious fridge freezer. Small appliances include a microwave, toaster, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine and food mixer. The cupboards are fully equipped with crockery, cutlery and glassware for over 10 people as well as everything needed for catering for ten.
Other practical spaces
These include a utility room at the rear of the house featuring its own sink, washer-dryer and storage space for coats, shoes and bags returning from the beach as well as an entrance porch at the front of the house with storage for coats and shoes. The spacious double height hallway provides under stairs storage/buggy area plus a small cupboard containing an iron and ironing board, hoover, high chair, stair gate and other items.

This large room as been set up to sleep four with a bunk bed and two single beds. There are bedside cabinets with lamps and plenty of storage space and this large room would suit a group of children.

A luxury feature of Endless Summer is its spacious enclosed heated outdoor shower for your return from the beach to rinse off the salt and sand. Also perfect for rinsing your wetsuits before hanging them to dry.
Bathrooms & Showers
The driveway has a five-bar gated entrance, with a separate pedestrian gate and has sufficient parking for at least two cars. With such close access to the beach and village centre you should not need to park elsewhere in Croyde during your stay. Endless Summer’s secluded gardens are fully landscaped, circle the property and are laid to lawn at the front and rear. They are fully enclosed, making them private and ideal for children. The lawns and flower beds are regularly maintained throughout the year.
Accessed through the French doors of the lounge and garden room, there is a spacious patio area with tables and chairs seating 10, leading onto the raised rear lawn with views between the dunes to the sea. The west-facing patio is a real suntrap and features a large overhead sunblind for midday shade. This area also includes an integrated barbeque area for al fresco dining and there are sun loungers if you want to catch some rays or relax with a good book in hand. Spend evenings watching the sunset from the patio whilst cooking dinner on the barbeque.
A private gate leads from the rear of the garden onto a wide footpath to the beach; just a few minutes level walk away through the dunes. Near the gate, there is a covered area for when you return from the beach, a bench, hooks for hanging wetsuits and a washing line. We have installed an outside heated shower and a hose for washing down your boards. Here you will also find a small lean-to containing a selection of bodyboards, windbreaks, beach toys, buckets and spades for your use.
