Welcome to Croyde
Croyde Bay is situated on England’s North Devon coast. With its gorgeous sandy beaches and magical beauty it’s no wonder so many of Croyde’s visitors return time and time again.
The village itself is steeped in charm, with many of the original buildings and cottages still standing it has a quaint presence about it with the feeling that not too much has changed in the past 60 years.
Nowadays with the rise in popularity in surfing, the village can become a hustle and bustle of life in the summer months when the days are long and warm and the surf is up. With three fantastic long sandy beaches to choose from you can be sure to find a spot for yourself.
The North Devon coastline is a walkers dream come true with rolling hills as far as the eye can see and coastlines so unspoilt they are picture perfect. After a busy day at the beach you can unwind in one of the local pubs beer gardens and enjoy that last bit of sunshine before deciding which of the local restaurants take your fancy. From traditional pubs and quaint bistro’s to the uber cool restaurant/bar the Blue Groove, there is something to tickle everyone’s taste buds!
There is a large range of accommodation available from campsites to self-catering bungalows, depending on needs. During the summer month’s accommodation is usually hard to come by if you haven’t booked your stay well in advance. For this reason we always recommend booking your holiday a few months in advance. We have carefully hand picked a few of our top recommendations which you can see by looking on our accommodation page.
All in all, Croyde has something to offer everyone no matter how young or old. Visit Croyde and you’re guaranteed not to forget it.
