Location description from owner
The England 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're 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.
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.<br><br>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 Ed Sheeran, Ben Howard, Jason Moraz, Newton Faulkner and many more and includes countless sporting competitions. There is tuition available for surfing and numerous other watersports.<br><br>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 Putsborough Beach can be found with its three miles of golden sands extending to Woolacombe.<br><br>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. <br><br>Golf can be enjoyed at Saunton where there are 2 championship courses with further courses at Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Barnstaple.<br><br>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!<br><br>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.

“Fantastic accommodation and location”
4 of us stayed for a cycling holiday and the accommodation was perfect. It manages to be both practical and finished to a very high standard, which is unusual in my experience. Excellent location both for wandering out at night for food and drink, and also for cycling up to Exmoor. The booking process was straightforward, with helpful emails along the way and overall the experience was faultless. We will definitely be back next year.....

“Beautiful house, very practical for two families staying together and in great locaction!”
White Sands was tastefully furnished to a high standard and well equipped. We were also very pleased with the layout which worked really well for two families staying together! The location was great, just a few steps to the pub, a short walk into Croyde and within walking distance of the fantastic beaches! The property manager checked in to make sure everything was alright for us and was very helpful in suggesting places for us to go. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into what makes a holiday home and we had a great holiday! Thank you.
