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.

We were split between four cars and there was enough space on the driveway for us all. Upon arrival there were fresh scones, jam and cream waiting for us. Everything was sparkling clean and all facilities working perfectly. The kitchen and living areas are very spacious and light with double doors leading onto the wooden balcony (our only very small discontent was being unable to open one of the doors - i don't think we could work out the knack to it!). There's just enough space to put up a gazebo in the garden if need be. The bedrooms are a decent size and the 4 poster bed was very comfortable and envied by others staying. The property is very central with a one minute walk to the local shops and pubs and just ten minutes away from the beach. Would recommend stocking up on food in nearby Braunton as the local shops don't offer a huge amount of choice. Both Joby (the owner) and Matilda (the housekeeper) were very friendly and communicative and kindly extended our check-out until 12 o'clock at no extra cost. I would highly recommend staying to any families or groups looking for a break in Croyde and all of us would certainly stay again.

Bedroom above the kitchen was a little impractical as our guests staying there couldn't go to sleep before everyone else did as this room is open to the main part of the house. But other than that we would recommend as we love beautiful Croyde. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The property was bigger than we expected from the photos and was very clean and welcoming. A great space to socialise in and also to relax in after a busy day on the beach! Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were too! The house was in a great location, just a few minutes walk to the centre of Croyde and about 10 minutes walk to the beach along a footpath which was suitable for a pushchair (just a little bumpy). We loved the new deli in Croyde - delicious food and very friendly. Steve, the owner, gave us loads of information before we left and then was on the end of the phone all weekend if we needed to ask him anything about the house. Thanks for being so flexible about arrival and departure times - that made the weekend even more relaxing for us :-) Everyone in our group enjoyed our stay and we'd love to stay again soon!
