Discover Challaborough Bay Holiday Park

If a stroll along a sheltered award-winning beach sounds like heaven, then Challaborough Bay Holiday Park - set right on the bay - is the perfect location for you.

Challaborough Bay Beach holds a prestigious Blue Flag Award which marks it as one of the best beaches in the country. It offers unrivalled views of nearby Bigbury Beach and Burgh Island, which can be reached by sea tractor at high tide.

There’s plenty to see and do on-park and nearby. From surfing and paddle boarding to the adventure playground, Challaborough Bay Holiday Park has something for everyone. There’s even an indoor swimming pool where you can take a relaxing dip!

Away from the golden shores, walk along the South West Coastal Path or take a trip to popular Dartmoor Zoo for an exciting and educational family day out.


Our static caravans at Challaborough Bay are designed with you in mind. Many of our caravans are pet-friendly and we also have extra-wide and wheelchair-friendly models.


A cosy lodge in a serene spot, with views overlooking the bay, provides the perfect base to explore classic Devon. Or why not book a stay at our newly refurbished holiday cottage near the sea?

Only staff we met were serving staff in bar/restaurant, they were friendly and very apologetic about the lack of items on the menu that were available, both at breakfast and other meal times. No information in the welcome pack regarding opening times of the restaurant or bar, we didn't realise they even did breakfast until the day before we left. All I can say is thank goodness for Friar tucks, the cabin just outside the park that does food as the on site chippy was constantly closed. Lovely place shame Parkdean let us down.

The park should state that the beach isn't dog friendly, and inside area to take dogs is very limited unlike poor bay,the park looks very tired and could do with a major upgrade
