Thistledoo is a great family run B&B in the village of Croyde, North Devon. I stayed at Thistledoo for a week with my boyfriend who had already been there before and recommended it. I was not disappointed as the place far exceeded my expectations - the house is spotlessly clean and the guest rooms well appointed; there are tea and... More

Thistledoo was perfect! Such a warm welcome! Unbelievably flexible and accommodating. Lovely quiet location but walking distance from everything! Would definitely go again! We stayed for a wedding and even having our 11month old daughter with us was no trouble! The whole place was spotless! Just a lovely place to stay!

A last minute break for the bank holiday and what a little gem we found. Thistledoo is a beautiful, well cared for property both inside and out in an ideal spot, literally a 5 minute walk to either the beach or village centre. On arrival Gizzy was as others have said most friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the family... More

I've been staying at Gizzy's B&B for a few years now and I wouldn't go anywhere else in Croyde. It's an excellent B&B, and Gizzy is very friendly and welcoming. The B&B is perfectly situated near Croyde Bay beach. It only takes 5 mins to walk there and 5 mins to the pubs and restaurants.

I've stayed at a few B&Bs in Croyde, and this was definitely the best. Gizzy was lovely, the rooms were great (and very reasonably priced), and breakfast was really good. The B&B is situated just a few minutes walk up from the Thatch pub. Will definitely be back soon.

My husband and I booked for a 3 night stay with our 5 year old granddaughter. I felt very uneasy about sharing a bathroom and almost reconsidered our stay, however due to Gizzy being such a warm and welcoming host, whereby anything was no trouble I stayed, relaxed and didn't want to leave. Our granddaughter loved Gizzy, who always fussed... More

I stayed with my boyfriend in a double room over a long weekend in mid-July to go surfing. Gizzy and her husband were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

“The room we had was very spacious, first floor, at the end on the left as you come up the stairs..good for a couple....it was above the kitchen so a little noisy if you want to sleep in in the morning, but also right next to a bathroom, so very handy.”
