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 new look cottages available for 2022. Brand new caravans are now available that'll give your holiday added style and comfort with lots of luxurious extras to enhance your holiday. 

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.

Mid DevonGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 15 or over)
Caravan was not as good as I expected, veranda was very small and table was broken. No parasol and no air con inside despite being told on the chat forum there was. VERY difficult to contact anyone before arriving and when I finally did they weren’t on the park and didn’t actually know the answers to my very simple questions. Beds were horrendously uncomfortable. Cascades swimming pool was very small and didn’t open until 8pm as stated but closed at 5pm. For some reason there was no booking facility operating and the queues were ridiculously long. A very aggressive man in the pool was hitting a beach ball at his own children across the water and staff did nothing to stop him. The food from Thunderbird on the first night of our stay was overpriced and frankly inedible.

Overall the location of Ruda is very good . The accommodation requires updating and a lot of TLC . Compered to other sites we have been to we would not return to Ruda.

HinckleyGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Facilities not up to standard after paying a sizeable amount for this particular accommodation that didn’t live up to the write up given. Left sitting in 38 degree heat outside of the caravan as wasn’t ready for pre booked check in time and when allowed in found the caravan to be very dirty tired and abused and a carpet covered in dog hair with visible staining and threadbare made the start of our holiday miserable
