What a great place Croyde is, plenty of places to eat, but the highlight has to be the fantastic beach! Would imagine it's packed in the Summer, not so in November lol.

We really enjoyed the cute village of Croyde. It has a selection of pubs, cafes, Post Office, gift shops, etc. You won't need long to see it all but it's a lovely place to wander around.

It's bad enough out of season, I would first ask who you're renting from. Then I would try the local tourist information as I know they do weekly passes, then you can park at any car park your permit allows when you out and... More
