CROYDE THATCHERS HIDEAWAY OVERVIEW
If you're looking for a quaint, quiet escape, but within walking distance of a bustling village and beautiful beach, then this is the cottage for you. This lovely semi-detached stone cottage is one of three recently constructed period-style cottages that nestle in the grounds of a 16th Century thatched Devon Longhouse and is only a very short stroll to the heart of the village as well as the path to the fabulous beach of Croyde Bay. Natural light is aplenty provided by the velux windows, with stunning views over the surrounding tranquil countryside.
"This cottage is owned and operated by The Little Pink Surf Shop in Croyde Bay. Guests are entitled to 25% Discount of off Surfboard and Wetsuit Hire prebooked from the shop or booked online on our website www.croyde-surf-hire.co.uk"
Croyde is a charming little seaside village, with a variety of restaurants, shops and pubs in the area, along with it's very own Post Office. Many parts of the village date back to the 17th Century and a lot of the buildings built in that time are still standing around the village today and is home to one of the best surfboard and body board beaches in the South West. The beach is privately owned and has lifeguards patrols over the summer season. Croyde is also home to the National Trust's Baggy Point, these provide delightful walking with excellent coastal views. Cycling, horse riding, golf and tennis are all available locally. The village is also very close to Braunton, Saunton, Putsborough, Barnstaple and Woolacombe, providing all you need for a great holiday. You're close to the famous Tarka Trail to cycle around North Devon along the old Railway lines or have a walk on the North Devon Coast Path
NEW! Free car parking at Downend Car Park Croyde!
Although Thatchers Hideaway Cottage is within walking distance from the beach we thought that guests might appreciate being able to park even closer! Ideal if you have a lot to carry (kids/surf/bodyboards/windbreaks/picnics etc.etc.) or if want to sneak off for a cheeky surf whilst everyone else is still in bed!
