“There’s something quite beautiful about the unpredictability of ‘The Thatch’. A little like the ocean that laps up against our shores, you never know what type of atmosphere you might find yourself amongst. Some days are peaceful and melancholic, others take on a whole life of their own as they mix a cocktail of interesting personalities. For years The Thatch has drawn characters of all types to it’s doors and with them they bring a touch of individuality and a freshness that keeps the unique Thatch atmosphere alive. So if you’re looking for somewhere with character, call in, we’ve got characters by the bucket load.”

Surf Spot
“Croyde is a magical place nestling around a stream running down to the sea. This award-winning sandy beach is fine and flat, ideal for children and good for surfing. Rock pools are in abundance and dunes a haven for young and intrepid explorers. Local fun parks for the children such as Cascades Pool Park are a great way to spend the day. Croyde Bay is renowned as a premier surfing beach destination in England for short and long boards. For the more adventurous, kite surfing, volley ball, kayaking and horse riding is on your doorstep. Within walking distance of Croyde beach enjoy its ice cream shop, gourmet restaurants, superb village pubs, surf shops, and art gallery. This classic 'chocolate-box' village is steeped in old-world charm and echoes the feeling of life in Britain in times gone by. Coastal and Countryside walks include the majestic Croyde cliff path to Baggy Point, (and for those energetic), to Woolacombe and beyond.”
