Croyde, Braunton, Devon, England
Lovely accommodation designed especially for couples. Bright, comfortable and very spacious. A beautifull place to relax. Hands-on owners keep weekly rates really competitive. Short breaks, charged pro-rata, are great value. A lovely place to stay. And - unlike some properties which a search for Croyde might turn up - Withywell is actually in Croyde not somewhere vaguely nearby!

Withywell provides lovely bright, spacious and comfortable accommodation for two (and your baby if you have one).

Conveniently, we're tucked away close to both Croyde beach and all village amenities. Also, unlike most properties down in the village, from our raised position on the slopes of Saunton Down there are wonderful country, sea, and sunset views. So, whether you're a walker, surfer, or just looking for somewhere to r...

Management response:

Thanks Sally for your lovely review - we're glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree our narrow lane can take you aback at first sight, but in the 21 years we've been here nobody has actually come to grief (not even the heating oil tanker!).

Thanks for the great review Graham. Hope you can come back when the surf's a bit warmer! There are crowds out there today (30th March) but I can't say I fancy it myself.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Please note that unlike many owners and most agents our short break prices are calculated pro-rata from the weekly rate - so if you book for three nights, for example, you pay for three nights not four or five! We can do this because we keep our costs down by doing everything ourselves, from cleaning to meeting guests on arrival.

Getting around
If you want to forget the car for a while, then getting around by public transport is a definite option. Despite being a rural area we have a decent bus service from Croyde to Braunton and on to Barnstaple, with connections to many other destinations. These are mostly run by Stagecoach, so a look at their website will give you some more details. As for rail, there's the Tarka line which runs through the beautiful heart of Devon from Barnstaple to Exeter.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 100.0 km
Railway: Barnstaple: 15.0 km
By car, Croyde is about 2 hours from Bristol, 1 hour from J27 on the M5.

Although a car might seem essential in a rural area like this, you'd be surprised how many people arrive by car and then don't actually use it once they're here. There's so much to do within walking distance anyway, and to travel a bit further afield Croyde is well-served by bus services to Braunton, Barnstaple and beyond.

Arriving at Barnstaple by train you can pick up a bus or taxi at the station. An alternative way of getting here is by National Express coach which comes to Braunton. It's easy to pick up a bus or taxi there.
