The B3231 Saunton Road was blocked earlier today due to flooding near Tennis Court Cottages, with water lapping at residents' front doors.
The flooding, caused by a blocked culvert, was reported to police at around 10.30am this morning and the Highways Agency and Fire Service were called to the scene.
The flood was passable but the bow waves created by passing vehicles were causing problems for home owners, said police press officer Alan Mobbs.
Highways Agency workers arrived at the scene at 1pm and set about clearing the culvert and pumping away water. The road is now clear and one property has sustained flood damage. The River Caen has also burst its banks, despite recent flood defence work.
