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.

The house is amazing and the far reaching views are gorgeous. We went as two families of 4 (both with children under the age of 6) for a February half term break. When we arrived it took us a few minutes to figure out where the two parking spaces were (opposite the property). We then walked through the gate into the very cute front garden. We walked through the front door to a wonderful entrance hall. It was an instant hit! There are three very generous rooms and 3 good sized rooms where there are a mixture of single and double bunks. Perfect for kids! The kitchen is great and well equipped. Although there aren’t any childs plates, cups or cutlery provisions so I would bring your own. The hot tub is well worth the extra £100. It was great late afternoon to jump in there and watch the sheep in the fields. The garden is great for kids. The playhouse at the end of the garden housed lots of outdoor toys to keep them amused. Similarly there were some toys in the chests in the lounge and conservatory. We had a few maintenance issues which were resolved so quickly. We were extremely impressed and grateful. The beach is a short walk away. Turn left just after Billy Budds and it will take you 10-15 mins dependant on how slow you (kids) walk. There are 3 wonderful pubs in walking distance which we sampled and were great! Overall we were all very impressed and would definitely book again both this cottage and through Choice cottages!

Only one thing I would have liked a tv in the master bedroom had to put up with big brother & Corrie hence finding a place I good go for a swim in the evening , would definitely go back & have told my friends all about this place 😀😀
