Although all of our cottages in Croyde provide you with your own kitchens, it is still best to stroll down the beach and taste the local Croyde cuisines. Hobbs Hills serves delectable Mediterranean dishes from lamb cuisines to vegetarian meals. However, if you really prefer making things your own, then you might want to order cut meat from the local Lovaton Farm. If you personally visit the farm, they’ll also show you how they raise the animals. This could be a fun trip and adds more to the countryside feeling in Croyde.

Eight miles to the south, you can bring your family to The Big Sheep which presents fun shows such as sheep races and horse whispering. You can also ride on the ponies and tractors in the farm.

The garden is not just for family picnics but also for a simple, but lovely date along blooming roses. It is a tranquil place for people who love flowers. There are also a couple of affordable eateries and souvenir shops along the garden.  

Traveling farther south of Croyde, you’ll also find the historical town of Bideford which was established way back on the 16th century.
