The quaint village is only a short walk and offers pretty thatched tea rooms, a selection of restaurants, pubs and stores, also ideal for hiring surf boards and wetsuits.

Cockleshell is a beautiful holiday home in a quiet street mostly comprising other holiday houses. The street is one of the routes from the residential areas of Croyde through the sand dunes to the beach and you do get quite a few passing pedestrians but there is no vehicular access so the only traffic is going to the houses on the street. We found the location very quiet and a short walk to both the village centre and the beach- perfect! The house itself was very well equipped and the wooden floors meant it was easy to keep clean. There is a hoover provided, which is really useful and helps you to keep on top of any sand coming in on kids’ feet! The XBox was a great bonus and loved by my kids although there was only one game (but glad there was a game!). My top tip for those visiting in Summer is to figure out how to open the velux as that is very effective at cooling the house along with the very welcome fans in each room. Highly recommended holiday house to anyone, but particularly families with primary or younger secondary kids.
