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 with hot tubs – 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.

StaffordshireGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 15 or over)
Not covid safe
We saw tables of 10
No restrictions at door
Staff never asked people to distance,many people walking to bar with no masks
Was a rope at the door but no staff to govern it,so people just walking in willy nilly
We go every year into the pool,we could only stay in for 10 min as our kids were going blue as it was so cold
We after a few days limited ourselves to the caravan and walks did not feel safe in the restaurant and entertainment
So dissapointing,we knew the holiday would not be the same,but we feel more could have been done to distance people

BristolGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
We had a great holiday, despite strong winds and plentiful rain.
The location of the chalet was perfect for short outings on foot, returning to cosy warmth and to wash off mud and sand.
