UK National Sandcastle Competition – Croyde Beach

At Dune Cottage Holidays we are very much looking forward to the annual UK National Sandcastle Competition to be held on Sunday 31st August on Croyde Beach, North Devon. This annual event celebrates its 19th year and they are aiming to make this the biggest and best yet. Crowds of 8,000 plus are expected to gather from across the country and from across the channel when teams of friends, family members and corporate colleagues start their 3 hour build.

We will be recommending this event to the guests of Dune Cottages this year. Of course we dont like seeing our guests leave us and our animals behind – but you need to explore the wonder that is North Devon. The kids (old and young) love our beaches and sand for obviously sandcastle building (or burying dad upto his neck).
