With an on park surf shop and plenty of surf schools in the area, we would recommend the campsite at Ruda if you're considering a surfing holiday in Devon.

We have several touring and camping options available at Ruda Holiday Park to cater to every budget, with pitches often start from just £12 per night. The great thing about our touring and camping holidays is that our on park facilities and entertainment passes are all included in the pitch price.

Our Standard Pitches, whilst basic, offer great value for money whilst our Serviced and Serviced Plus Pitches include extra facilities such as electricity and water points to make your stay more comfortable. There are even glamping tents available at Ruda when you fancy camping in comfort.

For the best sea views in Devon, we would recommend Bideford Bay Holiday Park which offers spectacular views across the North Devon coast and Croyde Bay. Challaborough Bay also provides stunning views across the historic Burgh Island.

When it comes to deciding which holiday park is best for your needs, you may want to consider terrain if you or any member of your group finds it difficult to walk on sloped or uneven surfaces. We recommend Ruda for those with a physical disability, whilst as the caravans are on a gentle slope, the terrain is still suitable for those who have walking difficulties. Torquay and Challaborough Bay both have some fairly hilly areas but some are still accessible for people with mobility issues. Bideford Bay is based on a steep hillside and therefore we would not recommend this park to guests who may struggle to get around. If you would like further information, give our friendly holiday advisors a call on 0330 123 4850 who will be more than happy to discuss your requirements and give you further advice on where to stay on park.

Devon has something to offer all year round and you'll be able to find plenty of things to do during your holiday no matter when you choose to visit. July and August are generally the warmest months with temperatures averaging at a high of 20 degrees. If you want to make the most of the region's glorious beaches, outdoor activities such as surfing and other watersports may be better suited to warmer weather conditions. It is also worth bearing in mind that certain local attractions such as theme parks and zoos may have restricted opening times during the winter.

However, there are sufficient days out in the region you can take advantage of every season from exploring local towns to spending the day visiting a museum or country house. For more information on things to do in Devon, simply head to our local attractions page.
