We love Combe Martin and we loved staying at St Crispins. The views from the house are second to none. We found it relaxing to sit outside on the decking area with a glass of wine watching the sun go down. There are plenty of good places to eat nearby including The Dolphin and The Pack of Cards. We walked to the top of Hangmans Hill...it is well worth it for the spectacular views. We hope to stay at St Crispins again.

Family of 6 and three generations and something for everyone. We came upon St Crispins last year whilst staying in Combe Martin and we was so looking forward to staying knowing the elevated position it held. We was not dissapointed the view from the front patio/balcony is spectacular with so much interest. We enjoyed every minute of watching the world go by and the changing tide and beautiful sunsets. A spacious accomodation and three comfortable bedrooms with ample parking. A number of steps up from the driveway and steep hill down to Combe Martin so would be difficult for the less able. My only negative would be the seating on the balcony. There is a lovely picnic bench available but relaxing chairs would be nice. Just a small gripe but we did use our beach chairs and if and when we visit again we will take our loungers. Thank you St Crispins for an unforgettable week, we hope to return soon. Nanny (the first generation)

“It's All About Location!”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

St Crispins has the best location bar none in Combe Martin, from the fabulous coastal views to the short walk to the shops (and pubs!). Not only that, the bungalow is considerably spacious and has everything you require for a comfortable stay. Our boys are teens but had a fantastic stay, wifi always a bonus although you had to sit on top of it, but for a family with young children this is an ideal holiday base. It was lovely to be able to have a lazy morning and not rush to the beach to get a spot or worse, drive to the beach and bag a parking space. Combe Martin itself is a lovely village, friendly people, and has every store you require, there would be no reason to get in the car for supplies as it's all here. Particular favourites were the deli, bakery (bread and cakes amazing), Black/White chippy (a must and their pizzas were excellent too), Pack O Cards pub (good food and great garden). The beach is so safe for little ones too with no big waves or undercurrents to worry about, the sea goes out quite a distance and then there's lots of rock pools to explore. Dogs are also not allowed on beach from April to Oct (I think) and this was policed which was good to see, there is another bay round corner which I believe dogs can use. All in all we had a wonderful stay, even though weather was a bit hit and miss, the only negative for us was size of bed in master bedroom we found on the small side and mattress was not very supportive but that's personal choice I guess. There are some great attractions nearby, we particularly liked the Dinosaur Park (great food selection too), Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway, Barnstaple town amongst others we visited. Walk/drive up to bungalow from car park is quite steep and is quite daunting at first but you soon get used to it and keeps you fit!!

“The best holiday home ever!”

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed a fabulous week at St Crispins in June - 3 adults & 4 pugs!
It was the best holiday home ever. I travel to Devon & Cornwall a couple of times every year, but this has been by far the most comfortable home from home ever (with the much added advantage of full 180 degree spectacular views).
A safe garden for the dogs. Excellent top class facilities & equipment. small walk for everything you need (though obviously a little steep). Combe Martin is a lovely unspoiled location; very clean & great for dogs too.
If I win the lottery I will make you an offer to buy St Crispins Alix - my dream retirement home!
Simply Fabulous!

“Absolutely Awesome View!”

Was lucky enough to find this gem of a property with a view that you can’t stop looking at. The bungalow is modern and clean with everything you would want. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. It is positioned a short but steep walk from Combe Martin with its shops and pubs. You could leave the car parked up outside and not use it. We took our two dogs with us and enjoyed the walks available. The Main beach is not dog friendly but a short walk from it takes you to another where dogs are allowed. Altogether the best holiday property we have ever been to. Would highly recommend.
