Croyde is such a lovely area one of my favourites ever. The beach is great, clean and sandy and the coastline is stunning. You can walk from Croyde around the headland over to Putsborough. Great views.

We relished stops like Croyde with dramatic views of cliffs and coastline, Whitcombe Bay, Putsborough to Woolacombe's award winner beach, little charming Mortahoe, Victorian Ilfracombe. The variety in scope and range is amazing. We also drove...More

We enjoyed this walk. It includes views over 2 bays looking towards woolacombe and bideford. It was not too challenging and well worth doing. Would not recommend for young children as could be dangerous in places

Although our favourite was spending the evenings/nights watching the sunsets down at Croyde beach and the moon then rise above the hills....More

By complete coincidence, Braunton Burrows was mentioned in The Telegraph we were reading about 5 miles down the road so thought we’d better go and explore. Prior to that we’d never heard of it. After travelling what seemed like miles down narrow Devon roads (an...More
