Surfer's Paradise Campsite: Great site for surfers (photo added by manager on 16/01/2015)

General

  • Friendly site a minute's walk from Croyde's surf beach
  • A 10-minute drive from Saunton Sands and 25 from Ilfracombe
  • Surf shop on site; pool and other facilities two minutes away on foot

One single minute. Yup, just 60 seconds. That’s all the time it takes to get to the beach from the splendid setting of Surfer's Paradise Campsite, on a green meadow a teeny distance from the coast in the Devon village of Croyde.

Croyde is, of course, rightly famed as a surfing hotspot, so before you dash straight off to the beach (as enticing as its sands may be), you’d do well to wriggle into a wetsuit and grab a board for hitting the waves. Those who are new to all this can hire kit from the surf shop on site and find plenty of experts locally for a lesson or few.

Not in the mood to encase yourself in neoprene? The sands are equally excellent for beach volleyball, sea-view walks, picnics or just a bit of chilling out, and there are umpteen visitor attractions nearby, including a dinosaur park, an animal park, an aquarium and sheep racing (but of course).

Picnic tables are scattered around the site for those who’d like to do seaside self-catering, or it’s a 10-minute stroll to the village centre for pubs, restaurants and cafés. Toilets and hot showers are on site and guests are also welcome to use the facilities at the site’s larger sister park, a couple of minutes away on foot – a games arcade, soft play area, fishing pond and indoor pool with waterslide await over there.

    Great location, very close to the beach and pubs/restaurants in town.
    Loads of space for kids to play.

    Disliked: 

    The shower and kitchen facilities are very basic and weren't always the cleanest. Probably more due to less considerate other campers.

Amazing location, spacious pitches and excellent, clean facilities.18/08/2023

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Stayed for a couple of nights midweek in the higher field for families. Really spacious pitches and staff encourage a large gap between them.

    Whilst very much a back-to-basics campsite the facilities were fantastic with clean toilets, pot wash and free hot showers.

    The awesome beach is an easy one minute walk away and Croyde only 4-5 minute walk as well.

    Staff friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    In the field we stayed in there was a slight slope but that's a very minor nitpick.

    No WiFi (as far as I'm aware) but a steady 3 and sometimes 4G signal.

    Only open during the summer. ☹️

    Proximity to the beach and site was quiet.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were swampy and sandy every time and no mop was provided to clear out some of the water. Toilets often had no towels or soap.
    We booked here to be able to use the facilities at the larger Park Dean resort but they were a big disappointment. Filthy swimming pool you could only use for an hour, and it was a fight to get a slot. We weren't able to view activities or prebook on the app so didn't feel we got value for money.

Local attractions

Croyde’s an excellent beach, there’s no arguing with that (and home to some of the finest surfing this side of the pond) but it’s worth getting out to other corners of this coastline, as there are numerous gems to take in. Board riders may also like to take to the waves at Saunton Sands (10 minutes’ drive) while those in search of a little land-based time can scramble in the dunes at Braunton Burrows (20 minutes) or wander on the coast path to Baggy Point and beyond.

Family-friendly seaside days can be had up in Ilfracombe (25 minutes), where you can scamper underground to Tunnels Beaches, come face to face with fish life at the aquarium and board sea safaris in search of wildlife out in the waves.

Other options locally include the animated dinos and real-life beasts at Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park (35 minutes) and steam-powered outings on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway (45 minutes). And that sheep racing? (Go on, you know you want to…) That’s at the Big Sheep amusement park (40 minutes), also home to a big indoor playground, a collection of rides and a brewery and gin distillery to perk up the grownups.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (13.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (11.0 miles)
