About Claire McBride

I moved to North Devon about 8 years ago because I love the area so much. It is a truely beautiful place to be, the magnificant scenery, beaches, pretty villages and outdoor lifestyle is very appealing.

I really enjoying holiday letting, it is lovely to meet people from all walks of life, from near and far. I take great pleasure in people coming here and enjoying not only the lovely accomodation I can offer them but the whole North Devon experience.

Why Claire McBride chose North Devon

Our recently converted thatched and listed Putsborough Manor Barn is well appointed, with two brooked and two ensued bathrooms, a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, and its proving very popular with our guests!

Our smaller 2 bed Manor Cottage is a listed, picture perfect, thatched cottage

Our larger new 3 bed Garden Cottage is a beautiful stone cottage in the fabulous walled garden, both v close to Croyde village and Georgeham village with there shops and pubs & ideally very close to Putsborough / Woolacombe beach.

All in the curtledge of Putsborough Manor House with its history stretching back to Doomsday. The gardens and surrounding hamlet are very pretty and in a conservation zone and also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Surrounded by National Trust land and lots of lovely walks. There is also a superbly positioned tennis court.

In short I feel it has everything to offer the holiday maker who wants to 'get away' from it all and enjoy beautiful Devon at its finest.

What makes this cottage unique

Walk to our fabulous beach (400 m) voted No 1 UK Beach in 2015 and No 2 UK beach by Trip Advisor in 2013 and 2014!

Garden Cottage was awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for its first year 2014.

Free wifi and full Sky tv

Beautiful private gardens for each cottage, one with childrens play area and both with BBQ areas

Child, dog and horse friendly

Beautiful private tennis court

There is two award winning pubs 1 mile away.

It is a magical place to visit.

What a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a must for any holiday maker! It's perfect for those who wish to either explore the beautiful North Devon coast or those who just want to leave the car parked up and spend their days on one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, surfing, sunbathing and walking.

The cottage itself was amazing - clean, well-equipped and decorated to an excellent standard; the full Sky package was a real bonus.

I wouldn't hesistate in recommending this cottage, although I would like to keep it a secret, just for us!
