Once you're in Croyde, getting around is a breeze. The village is small and best explored on foot or by renting a bicycle. It adds to the leisurely charm of the place.

For those who prefer a home-away-from-home experience, renting a self-catering cottage is an excellent option. Enjoy the freedom to cook your meals while savouring the stunning coastal views from your doorstep.

Unraveling the Beaches

Croyde is synonymous with its breathtaking beaches that offer something for everyone. Here are the top ones you shouldn't miss:

Croyde Bay Beach

The star attraction, Croyde Bay Beach, boasts golden sands and world-class surfing conditions. Whether you're a seasoned surfer or a beginner, the waves here are perfect for riding. If you're not into surfing, simply bask in the sun, build sandcastles, and enjoy the refreshing sea breeze.

Saunton Sands

Adjacent to Croyde Bay, Saunton Sands is another gem. Its long stretch of sandy shores and dunes provides an ideal spot for leisurely walks and beachcombing. This beach is family-friendly and offers a sense of tranquility away from the crowds.

Putsborough Beach

For those seeking a quieter atmosphere, Putsborough Beach is the answer. Backed by rolling hills and boasting crystal-clear waters, it's an excellent spot for a peaceful day by the sea.

Embracing Adventure

Apart from its scenic beauty, Croyde is an adventurer's paradise. The region offers a plethora of outdoor activities that will get your adrenaline pumping. Try your hand at:

Surfing and Watersports

With its famous surf breaks, Croyde is a mecca for surfers. Whether you're a pro or a beginner, you can take lessons from local surf schools and experience the thrill of riding the waves.

Hiking and Exploring

The surrounding area is a haven for hikers and nature enthusiasts. Explore the South West Coast Path, which offers breathtaking views of the coastline and takes you on unforgettable journeys through lush landscapes.

3. Coasteering

Take the plunge and go coasteering - an adventure that involves climbing, swimming, and cliff jumping. It's an adrenaline-fueled experience that allows you to see the stunning cliffs from a unique perspective.

Indulging in Local Cuisine

No vacation is complete without savoring the local flavors. Croyde has a vibrant culinary scene that will tantalize your taste buds. Don't forget to try:

1. Cream Tea

Indulge in the classic British tradition of cream tea - scones served with clotted cream and jam, accompanied by a pot of tea. You can find delightful tearooms in and around the village.

Public review This is a beautiful property, perfectly set up for couples or families. The interior is bright and modern and the owners have clearly thought carefully about making life as easy as possible for their guests. We also appreciated the fresh scones and cream, which greeted us on our arrival. The location of the property is outstanding. A five minute walk across the bridge in the private garden takes you into the heart of Croyde, yet the atmosphere was peaceful and tranquil. We loved watching the rabbits scampering around in the evenings! The owners live next doors and were extremely responsive and helpful without being in any way intrusive. We would recommend this property without hesitation and would love to return in the future. Private note from David As you can see from our public review, we were extremely happy with our choice of property. Many thanks, the Bensons Cleanliness: 5/5 Spotless furniture & linen Free of clutter Accuracy: 5/5 Looked like the photos Matched the description Communication: 5/5 Always responsive Proactive Helpful instructions Friendly Location: 5/5 Peaceful Beautiful surroundings Private Great restaurants +3 more Value: 5/5
