Things to do in Devon this Summer

Enjoy the Best Views

Try the ‘Four Beaches Walk,’ heading from Croyde up to the top and over the hill towards Saunton, where at the top you’ll be able to see Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton and Westward Ho! beaches; this is one of my top recommendations if you fancy a walk – reception can print you off directions if you need them!

Then there’s other beautiful spots like Woolacombe or Hartland for epic coastal views…

Try Some Great Food

We’re running a special this summer where you can get a great value, tasty main course plus a drink for only £12. There will be a homemade curry on each night, served with rice, naan bread, poppadum and chutney as well as a pie of the day with chips or potatoes & vegetables. With both you’ll get a free pint of Tribute or Carlsberg, a 125ml of house wine or a soft drink.. not a bad deal at all!

There’s always the Thatch of the Manor if you fancy going to a pub in the village as well as the Lola’s Diner street food residency throughout July and August at the Old Cream Shop. For something fancier you could try North Devon’s latest Michelin starred restaurant, the Olive Room by Thomas Carr or perhaps try The Chef’s Table at @EX34 in Woolacombe.

Go Surfing or SUPing

Hire boards and head down to the waves at Croyde or get some surf lessons with Walking on Waves who are based on site. They’ll take you over to Saunton for the ideal learning surf conditions.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding- This is the hot new trend right now, if it’s flat, jump on a SUP and go for a paddle. Walking on Waves have also started a new SUP tour which takes you down the estuary with views of Braunton Burrows, Crow Point, Instow and Appledore finished off with a ride in their landrover down Saunton beach!

Guests can book lessons or hires with Walking on Waves and get a 10% discount using coupon code CBHR2017.  The minimum spend is £100.

Visit an Adventure Park

Rollercoasters, Wolfman shows, alien adventures and sheep races- we have it all in North Devon. If you’re looking for animals and wildlife, be sure to check out Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur park or Exmoor Zoo –  both are great for the family and a very exiting day out. Then there’s the Milky Way which, like the Big Sheep, has a big new rollercoaster for the kids to enjoy or try Watermouth Castle for a fun and unique activity day.

Check out all our recommended days out here.

Enjoy an Ice Cream with the Family

If there’s one thing that goes hand in hand with a holiday by the beach, it’s ice cream! There’s lots of good spots in and around Croyde for you to get your double waffle cone, clotted cream ice cream with a flake fix; check out the Old Cream Shop or the Parlour in the main village or walk towards Baggy Point, stopping in at Sandleigh Tea Room or going over Baggy to Putsborough beach café.
