General

  • The closest site in Croyde to the beach
  • Glamping in north Devon, less than five minutes' walk from Croyde
  • Surf lessons, surf shop, indoor pool, two restaurants and two bars

Foam fans, you're going to be stoked at this. Walking On Waves Surf Camp is closer to the beach than any other site in Croyde – how swell.

Boarding in the bell tents here will have surfers a pebble throw from Croyde Beach, less than five minutes' walk from Croyde village, and a 25-minute stroll to more breaking waves at Saunton Sands.

Don't have any kit or have never dipped your toes in foamy surf before? Fret not, as Walking on Waves can sort all surfing abilities from absolute beginners to all season board riders, whether it's introducing guests to the waves for the first time, improving riding skills or fundamentally rebuilding skills in all things surf.

When you're dropping in back at base, you'll find a communal dining tent with gas griddles, an indoor heated pool and two restaurants and two bars to swap surf stories at. Sky Sports for all rugby and football matches is in the Plaza bar.

Walking on Waves also has hot showers, toilets, a food shop and free wifi.

    It was a fantastic positioned pitch for the bell tent just a short walk to the beach and I mean a very close walk over a sand dune and then into the actual Croyde Beach which was pretty special. We got a key for changing rooms in the nearby Croyde Bay Hotel - which you are also allowed free use of the indoor swimming pool facilities. Great on an outside wet downpour! The pitch is separated from the playing field giving it that privacy.

    The tent is pitched next to a large sand dune leading to the beautiful Croyde Beach. My boys ages 9 and 7 loved body boarding in the waves. People were incredibly helpful and friendly. There are two bars and restaurants and entertainment on in the evening. We were able to use all the facilities at the resort, the indoor swimming pool came in useful. The bar had lots of board games which again helped particularly as the weather wasn’t always on our side during the long weekend. It’s a short walk into Croyde from the campsite, Croyde has lots on offer, with nice pubs and surfy shops. We bought some pizza’s made outside in large pizza ovens. I think the shop was called Stoned. Delicious!!

    Disliked: 

    Bit of a distance to the toilets from the tent.

Local attractions

You'll probably be in the water most of the time if you're staying at Walking On Waves Surf Camp, either at Croyde or at the other nearby top Devon surf spot of Saunton Sands.

Backed by the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Braunton Burrows, Saunton is a long straight and sandy beach within 25 minutes' walk of base and is popular with surfers and families because of its long stretch of water and sand. Walk to Crow Point from here for some spectacular Devon coastline views, or hike the South West Coast Path the four and a half coastal miles back to the beach at Croyde.

Also have a wander around the shops and cafés of Croyde and its neighbouring Devon seaside villages, or shoot up to the coast for more surfing at Woolacombe and Ilfracombe.

Inland, stroll or pedal part of the 180-mile Tarka Trail (pick it up at nearby Braunton), or mosey along for a few days of outdoorsy pursuits within a short drive in Exmoor.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (13.5 miles)
