Places to Stay in Croyde
Staying in Croyde is an absolute must if you are a fan of beautiful coastal views and/or watersports. Known as being the surfing capital of Devon, Croyde Bay and the surrounding beaches fall within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty giving you both incredible scenery and a challenging and fun place to test your surfing skills.
Stay at this surfing mecca
Because people travel all over to test out the waves, there are plenty of places to stay that welcome surfers and even have their own equipment available for hire. The hotels and other properties in and around the village allow for surf and paddle board storage without sacrificing on comfort and luxury.
As Croyde Bay is sheltered and has several amenities right on the seafront, it is favoured by those looking for family holidays and so you’ll find plenty of options offering rooms and suits suitable for the whole family as well as smaller twin rooms for couples. The hotels, B&Bs and holiday parks have a range of prices and facilities, so you can easily pick the one that best suits your budget and style. There are a number of them along the seafront, so you can easily reach the beach with small children in tow and with lifeguards around in the summer months it is a safe place to go for a swim or explore the rock pools.
Quiet village location
Aside from the beach which can get busy during the peak times, Croyde’s village is a beautiful and charming place and is quintessentially Devonian. With cottages complete with thatched rooves and small, narrow streets, Croyde has a real old world feel which is well respected by visiting water sports enthusiasts and families so is ideal for anyone looking for a quiet, tranquil village location without having to sacrifice things to see and do. Visitors will love the number of walking trails around the village, the National Trust-run Baggy Point and of course the well loved Deckchair Cinema.
Every summer, Croyde Bay hosts Goldcoast Oceanfest offering a full weekend of watersports and live music. Because of its popularity the accommodation in the area tends to get booked up quickly, so make sure to check the availability in advance.
