Discover Ruda Holiday Park

Step into a surfer’s paradise at Croyde Bay with a beach holiday at Ruda Holiday Park. Boasting a sweeping sandy coastline with spectacular scenery, this breathtaking area of the UK really does have to be seen to be believed.

One of Devon’s best surfing spots and nestled by the picturesque village of Croyde, you can enjoy an abundance of local activities. Take a stroll across the headlands to Woolacombe Beach or treat the little ones to a trip to Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park.

There is plenty to keep you busy on park too, from the tranquillity of the fishing lake to splashing around in the indoor swimming pool. Kids will love burning off energy on the adventure playground before winding down for the evening in our bar and restaurant.

Caravan and Lodge Holidays

Ruda is one of our most popular holiday parks in Devon and it’s easy to see why, with its impressive coastal location and wide range of accommodation. Take your pick from cosy caravans and luxury lodges – there are even apartments and cottages available.

Touring & Camping Holidays

Pitch up for an adventure at Ruda with touring caravan and camping pitches just a stone’s throw away from some of Devon’s most glorious beaches. We also offer glamping holidays if having those extra home comforts is a necessity for your holiday.

GloucesterGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 4 or under)
The staff were all amazing - especially the entertainment team (Paul, Chloe and Yahna) - couldn’t have done more to help my 3year old daughter to have a great time! The caravan was great.... clean and tidy, good condition (especially as went went last week in the season). However - we would have really appreciated a “what to bring” email.... we assumed the very basics would be included - washing up liquid, dish clothes etc.
Also - I’ve been using the cascades pool for 30 years... I love it, and my daughter and husband now love it too - but really needs a proper refurb!!! Hasn’t changed (and it shows) for 30 years!!
We love croyde - village lovely, parks lovely, The Thatch and other pubs ace, baggy point is a must! Still brilliant holiday though and we’ll be back!! Thank you

We come every year and it’s always quite hard to find staff, there never seems to be anyone on the kids arcade shop which is hard when trying to entertain the kids. And it took us ages to get drinks this year in the bar of an evening.

We will take this opportunity to share your comments with the on park management team so ensure staff are more visual and always on hand to assist.
