Camping @ Croyde Bay

9.5

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Well-established family-friendly site in the centre of Croyde
  • A short walk from Croyde's beach, surf schools, shops and pubs
  • Peaceful site with modern facilities and staff on site at all times

Ah, Croyde – the mere mention of this lovely little village is liable to perk up the ears of surf types, who’ve no doubt heard about the splendid waves around this corner of Devon. Those same surf types (along with those who’d like to learn the art of standing up on water, and anyone else that’s keen on the coast) should also find their ears pricking up at the offerings of Camping @ Croyde Bay, a friendly site in village centre.

The waters at Croyde beach, around 400 metres away, are famed as being fab for both keen surfers and novices, and that also makes this area a top pick for family hols. This well-established site is a family-friendly place too, in a spot that’s easily walkable to the village’s shops and pubs but quiet enough for a good night’s kip.

Facilities have been kept fairly minimal on site to maintain that peaceful vibe; handy touches around the place include a spacious and sparkling clean his 'n' hers bathroom block with hot showers, a much-loved ladies' dressing room with mirrors and power points, an additional outdoor shower for hosing down wetsuits, plenty of fresh drinking water and a washing-up area for dealing with dishes (after dinners cooked on a barbie, should you wish). There's wifi around the reception area and staff are on hand at all hours to help out if you’ve got any queries or need tips on the local area.

Speaking of the local area, it’s not all about Croyde: Putsborough beach (another corker) is also within walking distance, and it’s a couple of miles to Saunton for more sandy times and a gorgeous golf course.

    Had a cheeky last minute camping trip - just me and my youngest son - and we loved it. We instantly felt comfortable and safe here. The toilet and shower block was clean, there was space to dry our wetsuits, nice kitchen area and really nice fellow campers. We loved the early stop to noise and the gate being closed early as we are early sleepers and early risers. Free good wifi was a bonus. It's a bit of a hike to the beach with surf boards but doable, although it's a pain if you forget something (eg surfboard wax in our case 🙄)

    Disliked: 

    A bit of a long walk to the beach. No plant based pizza at on site cafe despite advertising it (not the end of the world). Noisy crows in the morning but good job we are early risers!

Local attractions

So… the beach? Thought so. Croyde’s one of those fab places that’s equally good for a paddle, a swim or a surf. Experienced boarding types can usually find some good waves down here, and there are shallower sections where newbies can find their feet (with the help of one of the village’s surf schools, ideally).

For a rest from the waves, take a walk out to Baggy Point (about 45 minutes on foot), join a game at the village’s beach volleyball school or drive for 10 minutes to the rural pursuits at Borough Farm Sheepdog and Falconry Displays.

Alternatively, make it all about the sea with a coasteering day from Croyde, a ride on the beach at Woolacombe or a sea safari from Ilfracombe (both 15 minutes’ drive). The beaches at Putsborough and Saunton Sands are both about five minutes’ drive away and there are some cracking walks to be had on the South West Coast Path around here too.
