Discover Ruda Holiday Park

If you’re looking for a beach holiday in the South West then Ruda in Croyde Bay is the place for you.

Close to the picturesque Croyde Village and set right by Croyde Bay Beach, one of Devon’s best surfing spots, you can enjoy a variety of activities nearby. Walk over the headlands to discover nearby Saunton Sands or Woolacombe Beach or head out to Combe Martin Wildlife Park where little ones will love making friends with the animals.

On-park, try the obstacle course, 230 ft slide in our Tropical Adventure Pool, soft play, surf lessons and even fishing!

Caravan and Lodge Holidays

Ruda is one of our most popular holiday parks in Devon, and it’s not hard to see why, with a spectacular coastal location and a huge range of accommodation – from caravans to luxury lodges, apartments and cottages.

With touring caravan and camping pitches just a stone’s throw away from some of Devon’s most glorious beaches, camping at Ruda Holiday Park is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. And if you don’t want to compromise on luxury, our glamping safari tents are the ideal alternative.
