The Lookout - the perfect spot for your north devon break

"The great thing about the location of The Lookout is that you can walk to the beach…no loading-up the car, rounding-up the troops and trying to find a parking space near the sand! Instead, a lovely tenminute stroll down the footpath from the village past the fields (with rabbits!) and through the dunes brings you to the sand and surf."

We know what it is like getting out of the house with kids, so to make it even easier you can use The Lookout’s Red Wagon! You can use it to transport all you beach goodies and / or the kids to the beach and the Red Wagon’s big wheels mean you can even pull it across soft sand. We have provided a family cool box, parasol, windbreak, body boards and a selection of beach games so you don’t have to cart all of yours from home (we know there is already no space in the car!).

When you get back home after a day on the sand, our surf room is just the ticket…wash off the sandy kids in the warm shower and leave all your beach stuff in the surf room so you can keep your home sand-free! There is also a tumble drier in the surf room to deal with all the washing children create.

Inside The Lookout we have tried to include helpful items for the family. There are stair gates, a high chair, a sterilizer, bottle brush, blender and cot with mattress (please bring your own bedding). We also have kids cutlery and crockery.

At the house there is plenty of entertainment. For outside fun we have a paddling pool and should the weather be under par, there are lots of board games, books, toys and Lego. The Sky TV package includes all the Children’s channels and there is a selection of DVDs.

There are plenty of day-trips and activities for families in the area, details of which can be found in the house. Croyde itself has a pool and water slides (at Ruda) and there are parks with swings and slides. The Thatched Inn and Billy Budd’s pubs are a short walk from the Lookout. Billy Budd’s has a nice beer garden with adventure playground and both have child friendly dining. If the kids have been really good, Croyde Ice Cream shop provides a fine selection of rewards!
