    First holiday property rental for 24years as I usually camp, having two dogs, but Sitting Pretty was perfect, and Belinda's answers to my many pre-booking queries gave me all the confidence that this was the right choice for a much-needed holiday. Turned out to be perfect :)

    Sitting Pretty I feel is the best-located rental property in the cul-de-sac, as it is central to the green, with shrubs opposite, plus the property's own trees to give some privacy, plenty ample side drive width, safe enclosed rear garden/patio for dogs/children plus small areas of earth/shrubs in rear paved garden for dogs who aren't keen on weeing on hard surfaces! A lovely sun-trap too.

    Light, airy, so well-equipped, esp kitchen, lounge and bedrooms, many helpful and home-from-home touches. Not a sterile rental but a lovely welcoming home with fresh bread and milk if desired on arrival left by cleaner. Ample entrance hall with bench and coat hooks/shelf and bathroom off with folding clothes horse, plus full-size f/freezer and super-equipped kitchen were perfect for our stay as dietary and disability needs meant we didn't eat out but fully self-catered (2adults and 2 collie-sized dogs). A really warm, cosy property, with books, games, dvd's, Freeview, wifi all included. Shower and bath very handy and with no properties directly adjoining rear, Sittimg Pretty was a peaceful location with beach and village easily and safely reached without roads to worry about. Highly recommended!

    We had a car and visited Braunton, Barnstable (good leisure centre and 25m pool), Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Lynton, Lynmouth, Woody Bay steam train (accepts dogs, as does) Clovelley, and found lovely quiet country lanes to travel by. Ask for disability/carer discounts at attractions as these aren't publicised but were available eg free steam train and Clovelly entrance fee for carer; no blue badge parking concessions or tax-exempt due to disability free parking anywhere but park at Braunton Burrows for 1.50 taking route past toll road rather than 4 charge at Saunton Hotel beach car park. Happy holiday!

    It was our first stay at Sitting Pretty but won't be out last. The house is lovely, very spacious (use of the garden and shed too) and has everything you need. The location is great and the road is private, so it's very quiet! Can't wait to visit again!

    Although we have been to Croyde many times, this was our first time staying in Sitting Pretty and it most certainly won't be our last. Wow, what a stunning place. So well equipped, comfortable, clean - a real home from home. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage with us Belinda. We cannot wait to return next year. Best wishes from us all xx

    We had a fantastic week in Croyde with the dogs, a fantastic place to stay, close to the beach and the village. The property was perfect for us and we're already arranging to visit again next year. I recommend it to everyone.
