We are Sarah and Chris Betteridge. We have been operating exclusively in Croyde for over 20 years starting small, renting out our own properties, and over the years gathering a collection of properties owned by family, friends, and new friends.
Sarah loves helping people find the perfect holiday home for their treasured get aways. She is always on the end of the phone if you need advice or help during your stay.
Chris is a builder and works with our owners to maintain their properties and ensure they are ready for each new guest that walks through the doors.
During your stay you will regularly see both Chris and Sarah out and about, so do stop to chat and let us know how you are getting on.
As keen surfers we spend a lot of time on the beach enjoying the waves or walking our extended family of five cockerpoos,(so we are easy to spot when we are out and about)!
Chris fell in love with surfing at a young age, and our two youngest children have inherited his passion. They now compete regulalry at national level and are rarely out of the sea!
Spending so much time on the beach and in the sea means we see on a daily basis the impact of plastic waste on the environment. We are constantly working to reduce our impact in this area.
Along with a small team we set to work on preparing each property ourselves, so we know that it is ready for you.
Special requests and extras will be waiting for you when you arrive, and we are on hand to help with any questions should they arise.
This year we have reviewed all of our cleaning methods to ensure that our properties are COVID safe. You can read more about how we clean our properties here. There are also some things you can do to keep the properties COVID safe, you can read about this here.
Croyde has been a hot spot for surfers for many years. The beach sits within a natural bay which produces good waves for surfing. The influence of the Gulf Stream creates a Maritime Climate which creates cooler summers, milder winters and a warmer sea, all ideal for surfing. Complete beginners surf alongside UK national champions all year round, with Christmas day being no exception!
