There are supberb walks, expecially along the coastline - much of which is owned by the National Trust. There are castles and grand houses to visit, there are country towns and pastel coloured fishing villages to dsicover. There are plenty of activities at any time of year.

Putsborough is very close to Croyde Bay a couple of minutes drive by car but also accessible via a footpath/bridal way approx 3/4 mile. The beautiful Saunton Sands is the next beach to Croyde, the nearest larger town is Braunton about 4 miles away.

"highly recommended...excellent accomodation"

This has to be one of the finest locations in North Devon-only a few minutes from Devon's best beach- and wonderful walks close by. Jon and Claire have a superb location here, made all the more special by their beautiful (dog friendly) cottages. Two great pubs with good food nearby.
Cannot wait to visit again soon .
