Self Catering in Croyde

Whether you are a budding chef or a practical home cook, all properties come with stylish and functional kitchens. The kitchens are  packed with everything you need, to cater for the family, such as utensils, pots, pans, standard appliances, and large fridge freezers. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to take control of your holiday and is particularly welcome when you have a family to feed and a host of tastes to cater for.

When the weather is good, you can eat outdoors as all of our properties come with patios complete with patio furniture and BBQs. If the weather is not so good, then eat indoors at a large family dining table with plenty of room for additional places.

For those self catering in Croyde, there is a small village shop to buy basic groceries but a 5 minute trip to Braunton offers a wider choice from local suppliers and a Tescos.


Eating In.

Croyde and Georgeham, the neighbouring village have limited convenience stores. In Croyde there is a small convenience store located in the post office, where you can buy basics. There is a NISA food market in the RUDA caravan park, that is open to non residents. Georgeham stores offers a range of basic provisions. 

Braunton offers larger convenience stores and a Tesco’s which opens 7am to 11pm. Lots of our visitors stock up here or even use the supermarket delivery services to have their shopping delivered to them. Barnstaple has a Tesco, Sainsbury’s and ASDA superstores and it is these stores that the delivery services operate from. 

Home Hardware (a geniune treasure trove) in Braunton sells most things you will need for a self catering Croyde holiday, including BBQ and picnic essentials for down on the beach.

Eating Out.

Croyde has a great selection of dining options from good pub grub to gourmet food with a sense of fun:

Further afield, in Braunton you can find Squires, an award winning Fish and Chip shop and restaurant, The George offering homemade menus catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner and great food at The Riverside.  

Pop along to a Pop Up.

Keep an eye out for the regular pop up eateries that appear in front of the post office everything from unique pizza to hand made ice cream! 

There are a number of food vans in Croyde, but they are not your ordinary burger and chips, try succulent Sri Lankan curries or surf inspired street food. This is feel good food at its best, amazing flavours but good for you too! 

You will find all diets well catered for in Croyde, with expectional choice for vegetarians and vegans alike.  You may even come back from your holiday healthier then when you arrived! 


We know its important, which is why most of our properties come equipped with a coffee machine! 

Tare plenty of other unique coffee independents in the locality. They are really worth trying!

Heartbreak Hotel started as a small coffee van pitching up in Woolacombe, and have since opened in permanent premises in Braunton.

If you are popping to Tesco in Braunton try the coffee from 51 Degrees North the van parked up outside. Simply Yummy. 


Croyde has been a hot spot for surfers for many years. The beach sits within a natural bay which produces good waves for surfing. The influence of the Gulf Stream creates a Maritime Climate which creates cooler summers, milder winters and a warmer sea, all ideal for surfing.  Complete beginners surf alongside UK national champions all year round, with Christmas day being no exception!

  • There is only word to describe Bonnicott..... Perfect. Tucked away down a small lane. Number 5 sits peacefully away from all the activity, yet only a short walk to the beach and village centre. The accommodation was spacious, modern, clean and perfect for families of all ages. Our 3 year old loved the spacious single bed, whilst our 1 year old settled quickly in the travel cot. When we return to Croyde, we will definitely be looking to book Bonnicott again. Thank you!

  • A great location in a quiet cul de sac, near to all the restaurants and amenities of Croyde village. With super comfortable beds - something often lacking in holiday rentals! Sarah is very helpful with any queries.

  • Excellent location close to shops, bars, restaurants and only 15 minutes walk to beautiful beach. House had everything you need for a self catering holiday and being dog friendly it was lovely to have our fur babies with us. Very comfortable beds and clean throughout with a lovely large hot tub as a bonus.

  • Sarah's bungalow is a lovely space, with the living & dining areas dividing the master bedroom & ensuite from the other two bedrooms & shower room. Great for time away from the kids! It is really nicely furnished and had everything we needed in a well equipped kitchen. The location was perfect, on a quiet side road close to a path down to the beach and a surf school but also an easy walk into the centre of Croyde. Communication with Sarah was quick and very helpful and I would definitely recommend staying in this accommodation to anyone wishing to visit the area.

  • Great stay at The Rock. Lovely house with a great garden and the hot tub was nice touch. Walking distance to the beach and some local shops/cafes. Well worth a visit.
