Croyde and Putsborough Cottages

Set within North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will discover the pretty villages of Croyde and Georgeham and the beautiful beach of Putsborough.

Croyde is sun, sea, surf and sand. Simple as that. But that short sentence wouldn’t give you a detailed description of what Croyde is like, and persuade you to go there on holiday, or would it?

Croyde is famed for having one of the finest surf beaches in the world, with high profile surfer’s regularly visiting to catch some waves. The record holder for the biggest wave ever surfed, Andrew Cotton, is a regular visitor, and professional surfer Lyndon Wake also runs a surf school down by the entrance to the beach.

But Croyde is far from being a celebrity circus; it has a raw, natural charm that is encapsulated by its many pubs and restaurants in the evening. You will be instantly attracted and welcomed by the strong sense of community here.

Georgeham is a charming village situated just outside of the well-known beach location of Croyde and is perfect for holiday makers looking to explore and gives visitors the opportunity to walk to neighbouring locations such as Saunton and Woolacombe without much effort at all.

Can you tell me more about Croyde beach?

Croyde beach is guarded at either end by large headlands, making it a sheltered haven for beach lovers, and sunbathers. Naturally its popularity can’t go unrecognised and during the summer months the beach will be awash with locals and tourists. Many of whom will choose to relax and soak up the rays, but if you are looking to be a little more adventurous, then Croyde beach can offer plenty of activities and water sports.

On the beach, there are several beach volleyball nets and courts for you to enjoy. This is a great way to keep the kids entertained and interact with other beach goers. Occasionally there will also be some small football goals for a kick around. If you have forgotten to bring a beach ball or any other equipment, then the Croyde Beach Shop and Cafe is ideally located for a last minute purchase.

Down by the water’s edge you can experience the famous North Devon waves. Surf lessons are readily available for beginners and can be booked in advance or on the day. For experienced surfers, just grab your board and hit the waves. A lifeguard will be on patrol between May and September to ensure water safety is adhered to. There are a variety of water sports that can be experienced, but of course you will be dependent upon the weather as to which are available.

At either end of the beach you will also find little rock pools, always a popular spot with young families. Here kids can splash around to their hearts content, and create lasting memories of North Devon.

Croyde beach is also a very popular spot for walking the dog, however dog access is only permitted between October and April. But if you are visiting during the summer months, there is plenty of open space around the beach, where you are permitted with your pet, including the South West Coast Path. Food and drink is also readily available at the beach entrance. The Beach café serves both hot and cold food, and the shop is always fully stocked with ice creams.

And as you approach Croyde from Saunton (on B3231), on the right hand side is Down End Car Park, the largest car park in the village and open all year round. Parking is charged on an hourly rate. Its close proximity to the beach makes it a popular place to park for beach lovers, walkers and surfers alike. Plus there is the added benefit of a surf academy, toilets and a beach shower. 'Drop-in' for a coffee at their newly renovated shack, The Drop In - enjoy a choice of hot buttered toast, bagels, bacon sarnies, just what you need after a morning surf or an invigorating walk on the beach.

Putsborough

One of the UK’s most beautiful beaches, Putsborough is a charming spot along the North Devon coast perched quaintly between Croyde and Woolacombe.

It’s the same award-winning beach as Woolacombe but at the other end! For the second year running, it has been voted as the UK's best beach in the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards (February 2016). What the location lacks for in size, it certainly makes up for with beauty.

Accessible by car from Croyde or through neighbouring village Georgeham, Putsborough boasts a beautiful white sandy beach that during the summer months becomes extremely popular with holiday makers looking to have some fun in the sun! Don’t worry, even on a busy day, there’s still plenty of space for everyone to enjoy beach games! And is often much quieter than Woolacombe.

Putsborough, like the majority of locations along the North Devon coastline is renowned for its fantastic surfing conditions, and has been known to hold waves over 12 feet high! The beach is perfect for advanced surfers looking for punchy powerful waves, in addition to, beginners looking to try their hand at this exhilarating sport. The beach café situated just below the car park are more than happy to hire out their boards and wetsuits. Parking at Putsborough Sands shouldn’t be an issue, situated just above the beach is a spacious car park, with steps down to the beach and café, during high season car parking tickets are around £7.50 for a day’s parking. (Seasonal and weekend tickets are also available).

Obviously after a morning or afternoon of paddling, playing and having fun at Putsborough Sands, you may well get peckish. For those that are well prepared, why not bring a pic-nick down to the beach. Or if you don’t fancy the taste of sand covered sandwiches, the beach shop offers a wide range of freshly made lunches and afternoon snacks. Between April and October the beach shop is open everyday offering food, sun cream, surfboards and plenty of other beach equipment. Throughout winter the shop opens every weekend so that dog walkers and very brave cold defying surfers can enjoy a nice snack after a visit to the beach.

Friendly doggies are welcome at Putsborough all year round, however during the summer months (April till the end of October) there will be a specific area of the beach for you to enjoy with your dogs.

Where can I eat and drink in Croyde and the surrounding areas?

Croyde is a charming little village equidistant from both Braunton to the south and Woolacombe to the north, meaning quality local restaurants are in plentiful supply. The Thatch in Croyde village itself is a wonderful restaurant and pub serving spectacularly good pub grub. As the name suggests, the building is a delightfully preserved thatched property, complete with large beer garden and outdoor seating. Inside you will be treated to a warm North Devon welcome, and a varied menu which is competitively priced. (Don’t forget to give a few of the local ales a try!)

Billy Budds is just a couple of doors down from the Thatch and equally popular. They serve a good selection of burgers, pizzas and fish and chips. It is also worth noting, they have a separate Tapas menu, which is well worth a try.

Next to Redwood Surf Shop, you will find another of Croyde’s highly esteemed restaurants, Blue Groove. Locally sourced seafood and Exmoor reared meats are freshly prepared, and there is ample seating both inside and outside for those warm summer’s evenings.

Although the village of Georgeham is relatively small with just a village shop dotted on the main street. In terms of restaurants and pubs, Georgeham doesn’t have many but what it does have is extremely high quality and well worth a visit. . The Kings Arms situated in the heart of Georgham is perfect if you’re looking for a quick snack, lunch time sandwich or something more substantial (it has an excellent reputation for its Sunday Roasts). And The Rock Inn, a 17th Century Inn boasts real ales, an extensive wine list and fantastic fresh food, made only with the best local produce.

Take a little time to browse through our selection of holiday cottages in Croyde, Georgeham and Putsborough.  We’re certain you’ll find something just right for a truly special Devon holiday.
