The West Country region

The award winning beaches of Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton and Woolacombe are all within easy reach. Croyde beach is within 5 minutes walk of Sea Dunes.

On the north coast are the very picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth. In Lynmouth there is a harbour and cliff railway, salmon and trout fishing and a great choice of shops and restaurants.

The tiny, secluded fishing village of Clovelly is easy to find, with its wonderful old cobbled, traffic free streets that descend 400 feet to the harbour, protected by an ancient stone breakwater. It is a tranquil and picturesque haven of small cottages and tiny winding lanes that promise to reveal even more hidden treasures.

Breathtaking coastal scenery and fantastic walks can be found at Hartland Quay. It is great for families with rock pools to explore, swimming in the sea or simply to lie on the sand and enjoy the sunshine.

The famous village of Woolacombe with its three mile long beach of golden sand which has won numerous awards for cleanliness, water quality and facilities, is only a short drive away.

A short distance to the north is Ilfracombe, which contrasts its Victorian fishing village origins with its modern galleries and top class restaurants. It also boasts a vibrant nightlife from theatres to pubs and clubs. Boats from the harbour take visitors over to the magical Lundy Island.

For fun and all weather family entertainment this area is fantastic.

The Milky Way Adventure Park is located on the A39 near Clovelly. It boasts all weather entertainment, Devon's biggest Roller Coaster and fantastic live shows.

The Big Sheep is also on the A39 Atlantic Highway, near Bideford. This attraction has something for everyone - rides, shows, bottle feeding lambs, an indoor play zone and an outdoor combat zone. There are dog trials, duck trials and sheep shearing. There are even sheep races complete with jockeys - such as Woolie Carson. If it all becomes too much, you could always retire to the on site brewery !!

The Wildlife and Dinosaur Park at Combe Martin is also a favourite with children. It features dinosaur and sea lion shows as well as bird displays. There is the Earthquake Canyon ride, Tomb of the Pharoahs and an Into the Light show. Animals include many species from lions and wolves to meerkats and Lemurs - some of which are available for close encounters !!

Barnstaple has a variety of activities including theatres, a four screen cinema, a ten pin bowling alley and squash, badminton and bowls at the North Devon Leisure Centre.

You can also enjoy the thrills and excitement of kart racing at the North Devon Karting Centre on the outskirts of Barnstaple.

A selection of leaflets for attractions in the area will be left in the bungalow for you to plan your trips at your leisure.


Croyde in North Devon is a 'chocolate box' village of delightful white washed, thatched cottages, situated by a beautiful sandy bay, which is renouned throughout the UK for the quality of its surfing.

The wide, sheltered bay, with its golden sandy beach offers both excellent surfing and safe family bathing. The beach is very well kept and is patrolled by lifeguards between the months of May and September, when many families return year after year because of the facilities available.

The headland of Baggy Point provides great walking and stunning scenery. Cycling, horse riding, golf and tennis are all available locally, as are pubs, cafes and restaurants catering for everything from indulgent Devon cream teas to three course dinners.

You can get excellent food and drink in Croyde at The Thatch, The Manor or Billy Budds. The latter two have children's play areas. For more sophisticated dining, either the Kittywell and Whiteleaf would be a great choice.

In nearby Georgeham either The Rock or The Kings Arms are both popular with families for places to eat.

There is a takeaway on the Ruda Holiday Park site and also Bay View Farm in the village serves Fish & Chips or you could venture into Braunton which has a variety of Indian, Chinese and English takeaways and restaurants.

There are two indoor swimming pools. The Cascades pool is on the Ruda Holiday Park and is a fun pool with slides and an area for younger children. The other pool is an Olympic size pool for more traditional swimming, at Barnstaple Leisure Centre.

Golf is very popular locally. There are two 18 hole links courses at Saunton, which is only a couple of miles away, with further courses at Ilfracombe, Westward Ho and Portmore, which is just outside Barnstaple.

A short walk from Sea Dunes, there is a Tennis court at 'Upover' which is open to the public. Other courts are available at the Tennis Centre in Barnstaple.

For those who enjoy horse riding, 'Roylands Riding Stables' are only two minutes walk down the road.

"A February winner"

Sea Dunes is an excellent property and very spacious. We were a party of six adults and two very young children. Although we could not take advantage of the garden, because of the time of year (February), it did not stop us enjoying our stay. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything is there that you would need. The property is ain a good location and handy for both local shops, pubs and beaches. ~Woudl definitely stay again.

"Great house with lovely large living space for a large group."

The house was perfect for a large group. The living space was a fantastic size and our teenage children named the house the Tardis! It was well equipped with everything we needed. We used both outside seating areas, but especially loved the front deck with the view of the sea. The beach was a 5 minute walk so we didn't need the car to get to the surf. Highly recommended.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Sea Dunes and hope to see you again in the future.

"Perfect - huge even with 11 people and very well equipped!"

Location was perfect - 10 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from the village shops. Comfy and clean beds and bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen - even handy plastic picnic ware for days at the beach! Travelled with 10 of my friends (age 18) and found it big enough even with some people sleeping in the living room. Huge garden for sunbathing and outdoor dining and plenty of nearby walks and attractions and markets etc. If I had the occasion to, I'd go again this summer!

Many thanks for your positive feedback, we are glad that you had such a great time in Croyde and look forward to seeing you again.

"Fabulous holiday bungalow"

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality, layout, equipment and thought that has gone into this holiday let. The different outside areas for catching the sun whilst sheltered from the wind. The place is very well equipped, classy and friendly. We were delighted that we could do a part week, most unusual in holiday season.This place would score a perfect 10, if it just had 5ft beds, but then this is our preference.

Many thanks for your kind words. We may well consider larger beds, when the current ones are replaced. We hope to see you again in the future

"WE both loved the accomodation and the surrounding district, sad we couldn`t stay longer"

Was very pleased overall with the furnishing, equipment and comfort of this excellent accommodation, and also with the unstinting help in booking and price given prior to our arrival. As I am arthritic the only complaints were the
the pillows really need replacing, and also found cleaning the premises very difficult without the proper supplies other than a bottle of bleach..

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. All of the pillows at Sea Dunes were purchased within the past 24 months, as part our complete renovation and redecoration of the property. Cleaning products are usually in plentiful supply and so please accept our apologies if they were not stocked during your stay. We hope to see you again in the future

Many thanks for your great review and I look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
