The West Country region
The South West has arguably some of the most dramatic and enchanting scenery in England. North Devon is proud to boast its rugged coastlines, clean 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 if you are looking to get away from it all and relax or to be 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.
A short walk away from the beautiful sandy beach and National Trust headland of Baggy Point, a couple of minutes by car from Saunton Sands, Putsborough and Woolacombe beaches. The North Devon surfer's Mecca of Croyde with its family friendly golden shore replete with cafe, shop and showers, offers both surfing and riding schools. The area has spectacular scenery to rival any found within the UK and boasts coastal and inland walks to satisfy walkers of all levels of ability. Golfing enthusiasts are well catered for with several excellent courses within "driving range", notably the famous Saunton Sands Club. Other attractions include boat/fishing hire and ferries to Lundy from Ilfracombe, several adventure/theme parks nearby, Watermouth Castle, Arlington Court and a little further The Big Sheep at Abbotsham and The Milky Way at Clovelly.
Moonstone is located on the beach side of Braunton which is a large bustling village close to Saunton and Croyde, with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, public houses and the famous Squires fish & chip shop, all within a 5/10 minute walk of Moonstone. Cycle hire facilities are available to explore the Tarka Trail along the estuary, into Barnstaple and as far as Instow, Bideford and beyond.
Saunton and the Braunton Burrows form part of the only biosphere reserve in the UK and is the perfect place to take long walks, explore the sand dunes, relax on the beach or enjoy a surf - being the longboarders beach of choice! Golf can also be enjoyed at Saunton where there are 2 championship courses with further courses at Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Barnstaple. 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.
Saunton and Croyde are not only the renowned surf capitals of the West Country but Croyde 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 Ed Sheeran in 2011 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 nearby village of Georgeham is home to the renowned Rock Inn where gourmet meals can be enjoyed in its informal and relaxing atmosphere. Stroll through the narrow lanes admiring the many period cottages, thatched roofs and cottage gardens (including the former home of Henry Williamson, author of Tarka The Otter!) down to the traditional shop - the hub of the village!

"Moonstone - An Unlikely Gem"
We have twice stayed at Moonstone now. Set in a development of bungalows on the Croyde edge of Braunton, first sight would not necessarily say, 'Ideal holiday let'. However, 'The Fairwa… More

We stayed at Moonstone for 2 weeks in July/Aug with our 3 children. The bungalow is stunning. The pictures on the website are exactly what you find when you enter the bungalow. It has undergone a full refurbishment and is beautiful. Beautiful M&S bed linen and fluffy towels!! Every room is gorgeous. It is exceptionally well equipped with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. There is every piece of crockery/glassware/utensil/kitchen appliance you need. There wasn't even a crumb in the toaster! The location is perfect. We were out every day and never had to travel very far. We would highly recommend this accommodation and hope to return for another holiday.
Thank you for your fantastic review, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this lovely bungalow and we hope to welcome you back in the future!
