Cloudbreak is in a fantastic location so close to the beautiful beaches of Saunton Sands and Croyde, and neighbouring accesible walks at Braunton Burrows and Crow Point. We have really fitted so much into our stay here.
Barnstaple town is just 10 minutes' drive away, and has a great indoor traditional market with fudge shop!
The house itself is spacious, cosy and very clean and comfortable. We have cooked several meals in the well-equiped kitchen, and appreciate the chance to all eat together in the large dining room. We have enjoyed evenings sitting by the log-burner playing some of the great board games available, or reading novels from the bookshelf. The beds are lovely and comfortable and there are masses of thick, fluffy towels for all of us.
Our dog loves walking down the Tarka Trail just 5 minutes' away, and we have met many friendly locals. Its also a fantastic running route, peaceful and visually stunning.
We would happily return to Cloudbreak again, and cannot recommend it enough, we feel totally rejuvenated after our week here.
We had the most wonderful holiday at Cloudbreak! The house is simply lovely. From the fresh, quality, linen to the pretty south facing garden, it really was so well equipped and super comfortable.
The pub across the road is fab; family friendly, serving good food and wine/beer and plenty of room for the children to entertain themselves. We were made to feel very welcome.
The house is ideally located for the beaches (Saunton sands being our favourite) and fun family days out, the dinosaur park was great fun.
If you just fancy lounging around, the living room is lovely with toys and blankets, or head for a walk Down the Tarka trail which is flat and good for scooters and feeding the ducks!
We would definitely return. We spent over £6k going to Portugal for 2 weeks last year and I couldn't say one was better than the other!
Really nice to have quality soft and hard furnishing that you'd furnish your own home with and to get them in a holiday cottage is a great plus. The accommodation is spacious and has everything you need for your weeks break. The only oddity is that three of the bedrooms are at the front of the house which is near a busy main road.
The garden is a real sun trap and really is dog proof!
The location is great especially if you enjoy cycling as its an easy and safe cycle ride to the Tarka trails (under a mile) where my son and I we clocked up over a 100 miles in a week.
The broad speeds are good (24 mbps) and enough to keep demanding kids and dads happy when the weather isn't very good.
We had a few house-keeping issue that we hadn't expected but these were resolved very quickly and efficiency by the management company and didn't impact on the holiday at all,
We had a wonderful week at Cloud Break. A lovely house, everything we could have hoped for. Beautifully furnished, clean, well equipped kitchen and thoughtful extra touches like a PS3 and google chromecast.
And what an area. Close to some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. We had wonderful weather and had a wonderfully relaxing holiday. Some fantastic walks from the house, along the turka trail towards the estuary. Local playground for the kids with walking distance of the house, as well as a handy pub. Sad to leave!!
We couldn't want for more... fantastic location close to lots of amenities, a lovely pub across the road and we managed to visit a different beach/tourist attraction every day with no more than 20 minutes driving.
The house itself is absolutely gorgeous and wants for nothing and is very child friendly as well. As such we will definitely be returning as I can't think of a nicer, more relaxing place to stay.
