The West Country region

The South West has arguably some of the most dramatic scenery in England. Within this, North Devon can boast rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, wide estuaries and a particularly intense clear estuary light, green countryside wooded valleys and open moorlands. Walk the coastal path, cycle ride the Tarka Trail or across the moor, fish in the many rivers or open seas, horse-ride along the beach or across Exmoor, surf, sail, wind-surf, kite-surf or just build your castle in the sand!

So whether you are looking to get away from it all and relax or to get active and explore, there is always something to suit all of the family in North Devon.

Wander around traditional fishing villages or along sandy beaches. Explore unspoilt landscapes and a wealth of attractions. Unwind at a spa or get active and try one of the water-sports in Devon. Many attractions have special offers and free events and there are so many natural playgrounds including Exmoor, Dartmoor, and, on your doorstep, the coast.


For spectacular scenery and beautiful beaches whatever the season, there's no better place in England than North Devon coast and in particular Croyde. The beaches are recognised as possibly some of the finest and cleanest in Europe - with two miles of soft golden sand, plenty of rock pools and amazing surf.

Croyde is not only the renowned surf capital of the West Country but is also a beautiful quaint village of unique charm and character with its thatched cottages, rolling hills and the pretty stream that winds its way through to the idyllic sandy beach. The area surrounding Croyde is the perfect place for the outdoor adventurer with Baggy Point close by offering spectacular walks around the cliffs as well as specialised rock climbing. The Goldcoast Festival is held each year on the headland overlooking the beach with large stage and major music entertainment including Jason Moraz in 2009 and includes countless sporting competitions. There is tuition available for surfing and numerous other watersports.

Croyde beach lies between the headlands of Baggy Point to the north and Saunton Down to the south. This is one of the most popular beaches in the South West for surfers, and there is also windsurfing, sailing and canoeing. To the north can be found Putsborough Beach with its three miles of golden sands extending to Woolacombe.

The beach has a café/restaurant, toilets with facilities for disabled visitors, and disabled access to the beach. There is deckchair hire, surfboard hire, first-aid, lifeguards, and a lost child centre. The beach has a dog restricted area, pay car parking, and there are nearby shops and a wildlife reserve.

Golf can be enjoyed at Saunton where there are 2 championship courses with further courses at Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Barnstaple.

A few miles inland is the bustling village of Braunton, where you will find many shops, cafes and the famous Squires fish and chip shop. Cycle hire facilities are also available to explore the Tarka Trail along the estuary, into Barnstaple and as far as Instow, Bideford and beyond.

"great location"

Right in the centre of Croyde village, with parking - a major advantage in Croyde.
A nice cottage with a decent sized kitchen.The weather wasn't kind but we went surfing anyway- walking distance.We also went horse riding on Exmoor.
We had a great week ,it would have been idylic if it was suny but thats England for you.I would go back though as Croyde is the best surfing beach that's closest to London - Under 4 hours away on a good day!
Good pubs in walking distance and Shops as well.

We are glad you had a good time despite the weather. If you come back you'll find we've renovated the kitchen and repainted so it will be even nicer!

"Perfect cottage for a young family"

We stayed here for a three night weekend break with our baby and toddler. The cottage was just what we needed with a cosy lounge, large modern kitchen with high quality appliances and good sized bedrooms. The mews means we were off the main road so it was very quiet, and the Manor pub nearby was perfect for a family meal. Croyde beach is fab for kids and also for bodyboarding mums and dads. We drove but it would easily be walkable if you're not laden with beach tents and buckets and bags! We would definitely go back.

"Great location and really nice cosy cottage close to the sea"

We stayed with our daugher [15 years] and on and off, 2 friends plus a small dog.
Ideally located to walk to the village for shopping/meals and to the beach via the very nice beach path.
The cottage was very well equipped, especially the kitchen.
The kids really liked the comfortable reclining chairs - quite a novelty!
The small decking area was fine, had a couple of b-b-q's out there with friends.
It was also good to have some deck chairs, brolley, games etc.
The key safe was very useful with all the comings and goings - we could leave the 3 girls to it if we wanted to go out.
Thanks for a great stay in a super area!

Thank you for the review. We're glad you enjoyed putting your feet up. Hope to see you again. Jon and Tricia

"Well-equipped cottage in the centre of pretty Croyde village"

As a group of four surfing girls the cottage had everything we needed, including a lovely big kitchen with dining table for evening meals. Just down the road from the surprisingly happening local pub and a short drive or walk from Croyde beach. Bedrooms were all comfortable and the cottage was spotlessly clean. We're definitely coming back.

We're glad you enjoyed the cottage and the surf. Look forward to seeing you next year. Best wishes Jon and Tricia
