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.

Croyde Bay is worth a visit. Really lovely place to see. The nearby beaches are amazing and there are brilliant surf schools - also right on the beach. Was there with my teenage sons and it was perfect for them.

Not sure about the dogs. But there are lots of camping and caravan sites with loads facilities. Ruda bay has glamming camping with club house swimming pool etc but more quiet sites every few miles.
