Croyde’s famous thatched roofed cottages are surrounded by unspoilt countryside which meets the dramatic rocky coastline. The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of country walks to suit all ages across unspoilt National Trust
land. Follow the coastal path at Baggy Point, or follow one of many footpaths that zig zag over the surrounding hills.
Surfing in Croyde
Croyde is famous for surfing, hosting several competitions and events throughout the year. A ample supply of surf shops, schools and hire shops can ensure you are assisted and kitted out if you fancy having a go. Being set within a bay forces the waves to roll higher than other beaches in the area making it and exciting place for pros on surf boards and beginners on bodyboards alike.
Croyde beach has been listed as one of the top 6 in the country, and is kept immaculate by its private owners.
If suring is not your thing, then horse riding, cycling, tennis and golf are all available locally.
Eating and relaxing in Croyde
If you just wish to relax, you could take a stroll around Croyde’s delightful craft and gift shops then refresh yourself at a cream tea shop or one of Croyde’s many bistro cafes, each with its unique character. The village has a local shop for groceries but there is a regular bus service to nearby Braunton and Barnstable if you need a Town centre.
