The beautiful village of Georgeham near Croyde
Georgeham is typical of the many historic and beautiful villages that crop up throughout North Devon. The village is made up of stone built, thatched roofed farmhouses and slate roofed farm workers cottages.
Nestled in a picturesque valley, the village enjoys a peaceful serenity whilst only being a short drive from the beaches of Croyde, Putsborough, Woolacome and Saunton Sands. A 20 minute drive north will get you to the bustling fishing town of Ilfracombe, with its Victorian seaside grandeur. A 20 minute drive south gets you to the small, but modern town of Barnstaple where traditional shops and markets stand next to high street giants like Boots, Next and Waterstones.
