Welcoming Holiday House, near Croyde (CAENMA)

Situated in the very heart of Croyde village, The Property is a wonderfully spacious detached property stylishly presented in a contemporary style, just a ten minute stroll from the beach. The local villagers will tell you that it was formerly known as The Police House, so it's very interesting to find it sits adjacent to the very popular Thatched Barn Inn! The huge open plan kitchen / dining room is the hub of the house, where everyone can gather for convivial meals and wander out onto the pretty lawned garden through a choice of three sets of French doors. The fully enclosed rear patio and lawn backing onto open fields is ideal for a leisurely barbecue with the sound of the waves in the distance, and younger guests will love the space to run and play. The living room, complemented by solid wood flooring, has comfy leather sofas surrounding the attractive ornamental fireplace. A useful utility room has plenty of storage for beach equipment, coats and boots, and a conveniently placed small wet room is ideal for surfers and sand covered children returning straight from the beach. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, the double having an ensuite bathroom and a separate small study/nursery. French doors open onto a decked balcony, with patio furniture, having lovely views over the surrounding countryside and spiral staircase to the garden below. A further double room, a bunk room and a single room are served by a separate shower room. On the second floor the loft has been cleverly converted to provide a snug area with a comfy sofa leading to both a double and a twin room together with separate modern bathroom. The Property is a welcoming home where fabulous memories will be made and you will never want to leave!

This wide sandy bay is sheltered by the two headlands on either side, making this an ideal spot for safe bathing with plenty of space families to relax. Renowned for its surfing, there is life guard cover on the beach in season, with surf and kayak hire available locally. The area has plenty of traditional pubs and cafes to choose from, keen walkers can visit Woolacombe or Mortehoe via the National Trust coastal paths. This route around Baggy Point takes in the dramatic sea and countryside views.

At nearby Woolacombe is a fantastic all weather sports complex featuring a surfing simulator, a climbing wall and high ropes course. A short drive around the River Taw estuary brings you to Bideford and Westward Ho! with the stately home of Tapeley Park nearby. The formal lawns and kitchen gardens are lovely for a stroll, there is also a shop and tea rooms on site.

The Braunton & District museum is packed with historical artefacts and exhibitions of the maritime history from the area. Seaside enthusiasts may also find the Museum of British Surfing an interesting visit. The Braunton Burrows are an impressive sand dune system, the largest in England, with free guided walks once a week and two golf courses nearby. The famous Tarka Trail made up of cycle ways and footpaths is within easy reach.


From Tavistock and the rivers Tavy and Tamar to the English Riviera of Torbay, and the nautical town of Dartmouth north across Dartmoor (with its famous miniature ponies) to the surfing beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe, there can be few counties in England that offer such a broad spectrum of experiences to the visitor. 

Located in the South Westerly reaches of England, Devon shares a southerly border with Cornwall, and an easterly border with Somerset and Dorset. To the north and south the Bristol and English channels provide miles of beautiful coastline, and numerous attractions to the county. 

Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty (5), National Parks (2) and many other parks and reserves make it very easy to get off the beaten track, but the cities of Plymouth and Exeter are as modern and vibrant as they come.

Inland are a number of country landscapes to explore; Tarka Country to the north, taking its name from a famous novel, offering the Tarka Trail; a fantastic cycle route through the beautiful country landscapes. Centrally, Dartmoor National Park is the largest open space in South England, and offers miles of rugged and wild moorland for keen walkers to explore.

Dartmoor Zoological Park is situated on the edge of the moor. The zoo is the inspiration behind a Hollywood film, and home to an impressive range of exotic animals. Along the south coast is the spectacular Jurrasic Coast World Heritage Site, reaching from Exmouth along into Dorset, and offering a spectacular coastline to discover.

Further south along the coast is the borough of Torbay, home to some of Devon’s most popular seaside resorts and tourist spots, and known as the English Riviera. Devon’s county town is the attractive city of Exeter, offering a mix of historical and modern architecture and culture. To the south is the University City of Plymouth, a historic port, and home to The Hoe, a popular public open space offering a range of attractions.   

Devon is the third biggest county in the UK by area, but it's quite easy to get around. In population, it is only the twelfth largest, so it's really not very crowded! Geographically and in spirit quite unlike the neighbouring counties, Devon is characterised by the granite structure that forms Dartmoor rising out of its distinctive red soil, and the very different Devonian rock structure underlying Exmoor. The Devonian geological period was actually named after Devon since it was here that these rocks were first studied. 

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
