Enjoy sandy beaches and village charm with holiday cottages in Croyde

Croyde is a small village in North Devon which lies on the South West Coast Path and faces out into the Atlantic Ocean. Whilst the village itself is famed for having an old-world charm, the main attraction are the three beaches which make the area extremely popular with holiday makers, surfers and walkers alike. Away from the beaches there are a number of local craft and artisan shops and a host of outdoor activities to partake in.

HomeAway has a diverse selection of holiday cottages in Croyde which are suitable for visiting groups of all sizes. From quaint cottages to sleek modern apartments, there is something to suit a variety of tastes and requirements. Modern, fully fitted kitchens with equipment such as microwaves, dishwashers, laundry facilities and large welcoming dining areas make these the ideal base for a self-catering holiday, whilst internet access is also widely available. Pets and families are welcomed in many of the cottages, whilst gardens and parking are also offered in abundance.

Whilst holiday cottages in Croyde are enjoyed by families and walking groups alike, visitors to England have a variety of other holiday destinations to choose from. Discover the historical and mystical town of Glastonbury with holiday farmhouses in Mendip from which the ancient cathedral and the powerful Glastonbury Tor are but a short walk. Meanwhile, those looking for a walking holiday should consider a holiday cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, which provides a homely base for couples and families alike.

Things to do

Surfing: Croyde Bay is renowned as one of the best surfing beaches in England, and there are a host of local businesses offering tutoring and equipment hire for novices and experienced surfers alike. Conditions in the main bay tend to feature strong rips, A-frame barrels and an oft-admired beach break, making holiday cottages in Croyde the ideal base for a surfing holiday.

Beaches: Outside of the surfing community, Devon beaches are still enjoyed and admired by many. Croyde Beach is iconic with its rolling sand dunes and shallow tides, offering miles of flat sand for family fun. Meanwhile, just a short walk from the main Croyde village is Saunton Beach, which offers 2 miles of golden sands where dogs are welcomed throughout the year, and the famed Woolacombe Beach, which has been recognised as ‘Britain’s Best Beach’ on more than one occasion.

Horse Riding: The Devonshire coast and countryside are the ideal landscape for horse riding and within easy reach of Croyde holiday bungalows there are a number of horse riding schools where tutoring, equipment and horse rental can be easily found. Treks take place regularly around the local area so visitors can choose to either partake in an organised hack, or take themselves to the countryside to discover the landscape for themselves.

Water Sports: As well as surfing and beach based activities, the waters of Croyde Bay have the perfect conditions for a variety of water sports. Canoeing, windsurfing, kayaking and coasteering are popular among the locals and visitors alike with lessons and sessions in plentiful supply.

                                    Family holiday

                                    5 of 5
                                    Have just returned from a family holiday staying in The Barn and The Farmhouse. 6 adults and four children. The location of the cottages is great, close to Post Office, shops and Pubs. There is also a pleasnt walk to the beach. The cottages are very spacious and are equipped to a high standard. They are situated up a very quiet lane and there is ample parking space. Spacious gardens for the children to play safely. All in all a very nice place to spend a relaxing time. We will definitely be returning to Croyde and stay in The Barn and The Farmhouse.

                                    Weekend in Croyde

                                    5 of 5
                                    Our family stayed in Croyde Cottage for a long weekend in March, 2 adults and 4 children. The cottage was beautiful, very homely but spacious. Fantastic location, right in the heart of the village. We found the kitchen to be very well equipped, easy to cook a large family meal. The property was very clean and well maintained. We particularly enjoyed having a log fire! We have visited Croyde many, many times, and go there for relaxing weekends and proper "family" time which always includes walks on the beach, ice-creams and Sunday lunch at the pub! This is probably the best property we have stayed in, in Croyde, and we will definately be back!
