About K Dore
My husband grew up in Devon and spent many childhood summers in Croyde, camping and surfing. When we first met we would drive from London to spend many weekends there enjoying the beautiful beach, surfing, walking and the village pubs and restaurants. We spent the week before getting married relaxing in the dunes (wedding dress in box in back of the car). Work has taken us to USA but we continue to use the property on a regular basis and invite family and friends to enjoy the house and the beautiful surrounding coastal area.
K Dore purchased this House in 2005

Lovely property, perfect for a family holiday
Lovely spacious home, close to the village of Croyde and a short walk to the beach. The garden was beautiful, well kept and plenty of room for three small boys to play ball games and ride their scooters. Plenty of space for our family of 12 to eat indoors or outside. The kitchen was well equipped and the property was clean and well furnished.
Loved the house though felt garden furniture was dissappointing
Large, well-appointed property with excellent location
Would definitely recommend the property:
- Location absolutely ideal with 5 minute walk into village
- Still far enough away from the village to be idyllic and quiet
- Very spacious with all mod-cons (2 kitchens, large gas bbq, etc.)
- Lovely large, safe garden ideal for children
- Communication from the owner was top notch
- House essentials need to be supplied by guests (toilet paper, tea towels, soap, etc.) so either bring with you or do a big shop on first day
Not a criticism of the property, but we were somewhat disappointed with Croyde itself
- Clean, sandy beach with excellent surfing
- Nice walks up around the coastal paths
- Relatively long walk from village down to beach (ca. 500m, no "sea-side promenade")
- Extremely busy in high season with far too much traffic for such a tiny village. Lack of pavements makes walking in the village with small children quite hazardous
- Next large supermarket is in Braunton. Only 5 miles away but with the awful traffic it can be a 60 minute drive.
The house was perfect for 3 generations -plenty of space, a beautiful garden and within walking distance of the beach.
Our second visit and we hope to return.
Great house, brill location
The setting of the house is just beautiful. The house itself has all the amenities you could ever need and was very spacious for our multi generational family holiday (ages 2 1/2 - 77 1/2!). Obviously croyde itself is fab. We have had some great days out on the beach and local area.
lovely house and location.
Plenty of room both inside house and in beautiful garden. Also Croyde quaint village with local shops.
