Glad you all had a good time, and that there was plenty of space to relax into. Outside of Croyde, Braunton is a lovely little town and of course it has the multi award-winning Squires Fish and Chips. Always worth a visit. Look forward to...More

About the neighbourhood
North Devon has a number of 'Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Croyde Bay is close to many of them. Croyde is a picturesque village on Devon's Gold Coast with an award-winning beach that is loved by surfers of all abilities. The beach not only has superb surfing but at the north end are a great set of rockpools to explore. Other nearby beaches to try include Saunton Sands which is also popular with surfers to the south and Putsborough beach to the north. Putsborough is one end of a beach which stretches all the way to Woolacombe.
Locally golf is available at the famous Saunton Golf course and if you fancy horse riding the local stables are a short walk away.
Croyde itself is well served with a variety of pubs, bars and cafes to s
Getting around
Walking is the best way to explore. The North Devon Coastal path runs just 0.3km from our front door, to the north around the National Trust owned Baggy Point which is a wonderful walk for all ages.
You can try a trusty steed and go horseriding, or you can explore the wonderful Devon countryside either viewing many childrens attractions (wildlife parks/The Big Sheep/Milky Way etc) or you can visit stately homes and open gardens. Ilfracombe boasts a Damien Hirst statue Verity, and there are cinemas in both Barnstaple and Ilfracombe. Easiest to take the car if visiting further afield than Croyde/Braunton.
Car not needed
How to get there
There are good links from both the M5 (if driving) or from Barnstaple Station (by train).
By car: approach Barnstaple from the A361 (links with the M5) and then take the ring road round to the south - following signs for Braunton. Then take the A361 again to Braunton. At the main traffic lights in Braunton turn left signposted Saunton and Croyde B3231. Further along this road you will get your first glimpse of the sea - my kids never tire of 'who can see the sea first!!'

You will go passed a large hotel on the left called Saunton Sands Hotel - has Jacuzzi and wonderful massage/beautician area.
Around next headland (about 0.5 to 1 mile) you will see Croyde bay in front of you. As you drive into Croyde there are traffic calming narrow sections of road. Go passed the Unison h...
