About Mhorag Clarke
Hi, my name is Mhorag Clarke and normal life for me, hubby Rob and our 2 girls is sadly a long way from the beach. My first experience of Croyde was a camping trip in 1998 and I loved it then and knew I would be back. After many holidays in Croyde over the past 18 years we finally decided to buy a holiday home in 2012 and when we found this property we knew it was in the right place for us. Now, after a lot of hard work and major renovations, the house is how we want it to be and we are more then happy to share it with others who can also enjoy lovely Croyde. As an active family we can surf, bodyboard or take the dogs for run on the beach and in the dunes. We also love to cycle and there are a number of great cycle routes in the area (some with hills that you will either love or hate!). We try to get to the house as often as possible as we love the sea and the area in general but it is quite a long journey from our home in Bedfordshire. We have tried to think of everything possible to make the house the perfect holiday home so we hope you enjoy it if you decide to stay. :)

Why Mhorag Clarke chose Croyde
Croyde has always had a special place in our hearts because it such a pretty village. We fell in love the area many years ago as the beaches are amazing and the general buzz and friendly atmosphere around the village itself. The village is fairly small so easy to get around and has everything to offer including Bakery, Post Office, Ice Cream and Fudge Shops, Surf Schools and Surf shops, Cafés and Pubs. We particularly enjoy the cheesy chips at the Thatch and the pub food at the Kings Arms in Georgeham. Once you are in the village you don't need your car to get around as everywhere is within walking distance. There is also a lot of great cycling to be done either on the very hilly climbs out of Croyde or on the Tarka trail which is family friendly. The area is generally very dog friendly so they can have fun too.

Well laid out property, clean, spacious kitchen, with great bifold, well laid out bedrooms/bathrooms
home from home, all great amenities supplied, scones on arrival! fantastic location, very comfortable beds, ideal for my disabled mother, a real find! couldn't fault a thing and the Mhorag was a great host. would definitely book again - thank you for making our holiday so special.
Thank you Tracey you were a pleasure to have 😃
Excellent property in a quiet and convenient location. Loved it.
Very nice property which is very well equipped for a self catering holiday. The garden is well suited for small children which is fully enclosed with an astro turf lawn. The grandchildren enjoyed playing out there, and with the bifold doors fully open they didn’t feel cut off from the adults. The beach at Croyde is a ten minute walk away along a path, and we spent many hours enjoying the beach in the absolutely glorious weather. We ate out a couple of times in the village in the evening and one lunchtime and would recommend Blue Groove. The food is good and there is a children’s play area at the back.
Glad you had a good break with the family and we love to have you back 😃
Perfect holiday home.
Couldn’t have been better. Everything and more you could want from a property. The garage full of goodies was great. Wetsuits, body boards and the table tennis were brilliant! Quiet, close location to centre. Very helpful owner. Can’t wait to stay again!
Thank you so much Frank very glad to be of help as we like our guests to be happy . Mhorag
Great property and location
The property has everything you could need, is very spacious and relaxing. Short walk to beach and village, and the beach was fantastic for the dogs.
Thank you so much for saying so Darren and pleased that you and Jane had a great time.We try hard to ensure the place is home from home so is very lovely to hear from guests that it is. It was delightful to have you and the pooches to stay you were perfect guests and very welcome to return ☀️🐶😃
