Sitting Pretty is sat in the middle of a private single track cul-de-sac of holiday homes with a central green which all properties look out onto. Sitting Pretty has three separate bedrooms, one bathroom and a central roomy living area with open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. There is a private shed for storage of surfing/beach gear. A brick build property, Sitting Pretty is snug and warm all year round with electric blankets and storage heaters ensuring you are lovely and warm even if there's snow on the beach!! In summer roll the patio doors back and open the skylight window for a light airy bungalow flooded with light and plenty of space for the family to relax. Sitting Pretty is sooo close to the beach even little legs can make it there, and the footpath is a gentle incline which can easily be used by either pushchairs or wheelchairs. After a lovely day at the beach its only a short walk home before having a shower and either a stroll to the village for tea or award winning fish and chips from Squires in Braunton, or from closer to home in Croyde, or a home prepared meal in the fantastically equipped kitchen at Sitting Pretty. There is a TV and DVD player so you can relax when you get back from the beach and if there is a day when the 'sun don't shine' - there are plenty of games or DVDs for everyone to play or watch. Indoor swimming pool Cascades (with flume) is 6 minutes walk away, Unison indoor pool and sauna is 4 minutes walk away. Short breaks can be available (but not during the school summer holidays. Please contact me to ask.
Real home from home

We have just spent a short break at Sitting Pretty and couldnt be happier with our whole experience from location to standard of accommodation.
The location is fantastic for exploring the coast; we have visited Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Coombe Martin, Lynton & Lynmouth, Braunton, Saunton Sands & not forgetting Croyde Beach. Everywhere is so easily accesible if you stick to the A roads where possible and not listen to Google Maps who had us down some pretty narrow roads at times!! Google is not always the best option.
Sitting Pretty has everything you could want for a home away from home, it is warm & cosy and joy above joy provides a non stick frying pan! Taking regular short breaks in October I have got used to taking my own frying pan for the all important full English to set us up for a days walking our dogs, most properties do not have a non stick frying pan which causes no end of frustrations for who has the broken egg. Its the little things that make a holiday into a fantastic holiday and Belinda has thought of everything providing us with a thoroughly enjoyable break.
We have covered many miles walking our dogs who we think are now broken as they have slept the whole way home, lumbered into the house and are still snoozing, evidence they have enjoyed their break too. We think they will be missing the walk to the pub tonight for a pint (for us ) and a packet of scratchings (for them) oh well all good things have to come to an end.
We cant recommend Sitting Pretty highly enough and would love to return.
Fantastic holiday :)

What can I say - we had a fantastic holiday staying at 'Sitting Pretty'. The location was perfect - very quiet and a short stroll to the beautiful Croyde beach and village. The bungalow was fully equipped with everything we needed and a nice private patio area for our little dog. All in all a very relaxing week and we will definitely be back. Thank you Belinda for a great week in your bungalow :)

Perfect weekend getaway
By Angus M. on 22-Mar-2016
Enjoyed a weekend break in Croyde with a group friends. Making the most of the beach, waves and the beautiful village of Croyde. The house is in a perfect location, with everything we needed for and weekend to remember. Also the owner made the experience even better, by being such a pleasure to deal with. Looking forward to coming back.
Dog friendly beach cottage
By Farnaz M. on 09-Jan-2016
This was our first time travelling with our puppy. Sitting Pretty was the perfect place with a secure patio out the back and plenty of places to walk the dog, not to mention the very short walk to the beach.
The house itself was very clean and fully equipped with everything our family needed. We loved our stay and will definitely be returning.
By Kate R. on 06-Jan-2016
What a great find this property was - absolutely perfect. Bright, airy, spacious, clean, well equipped, we really couldn't fault it. Everything we needed was there - really couldn't think of anything that wasn't catered for! Very close to beach and shops. Would not have any hesitation in recommending this property. We will definitely be back! x

I had a wonderful relaxing week at this exceptionally well equipped lovely bungalow set in a quiet pretty location. Only a short walk to the pretty village of Croyde and it's beautiful beach. It's great that dogs are accepted and that there is enclosed garden space. Wonderful beaches in the area, Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe all great for long walks for both two and four legged visitors and very popular with surfers. Great local pubs serving very good food. I would definitely recommend 'Sitting Pretty' and would have no hesitation in staying again. Thank you Belinda for a wonderful week.

A weekend in Croyde
By Fi Fi Berks on 14-Jun-2014
We visited this cottage last weekend for the first time and found it to be absolutely perfect for all our needs. Its tucked away in a little cul de sac and a stones throw, down a little lane to Croyde beach or the village centre so no need to drive. My son and his friend skateboard everywhere, they have forgotten how to walk, and found lots of quiet places to do this, as well as going round the green in front of the cottage a few times. The dunes behind the beach are fabulous and great fun for jumping around in. Croyde beach doesn't allow dogs so we went to Puttsborough beach which is 5 mins by car and we absolutely loved it, just beautiful and a surf school, café and loos. The cottage itself is so well equipped. We didn't need the washing machine, dishwasher etc but for a week it would all be really useful. I am really fussy about cleanliness and usually expect to have a bit of a clean when I use a rented property but no need this time, it was sparkling clean and well up to my OCD standards! Lots of pubs in the village to eat at if you can't be bothered to cook and some nice little surf shops and usual post office bakery and so on. We loved it and highly recommend you visit the area and "Sitting Pretty".

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 Leadengates Field, 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!
