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 splashing around in the indoor swimming pool to 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.

We had a dog friendly caravan, which was very comfortable and spacious. The only downside was the caravan smelt of dogs which was quiet evident when I went and used the hoover, which was full of dog hair and needed the filter changed as the smell coming out if the hoover was very doggy. The caravan could have done with fabreezing , which is what we ended up doing.
