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 try your hand at scuba diving!

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 or cottage in a serene spot, with views overlooking the bay, provides the perfect base to explore classic Devon.

I (single woman, 70) was extremely disappointed to be placed in the furthest caravan from the beach at the back of the park up a steep hill with an almost impossible turning into the parking space. I felt threatened and claustrophobic. I was nowhere near my friends. I was a long way from the entertainment complex. I have learned to ring up and pay a fee to secure the correct caravan. I have been coming to Challaborough over 20 years and this year could well have been the last.

Roads to Challaborogh are very narrow. The beach is not dog friendly and should be stated on your website or at least state its seasonal. I picked Challaborough on the basis it was dog friendly and on the beach. Its only when you click on challaborough bay further information that it mentions the beach us restricted. It would be useful if you could advise bigbury on sea is dog friendly and a short 15 min walk along the coastal path. There is also a mEADOW to walk dogs that I found by accident. There were a lot of dogs so this information at check in would be helpful.

I was lucky enough to be allocated a caravan a stone’s throw from the beach. The road in is narrow but take it steady and there are ample passing places. I would also recommend investing in a decent road atlas and not using a sat nav as it will tend to take you along the back routes which are not always the best way to go!! Stunning location, not far from the South West coast path.
