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.

MaidenheadGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 4 or under)
Needs more security. 2 football nights with lots of shouting, drinking, foul language, racism and general flouting of covid rules with regards to numbers of people in a single lodge was not policed. We had a toddler and a baby in our party and the baby was disturbed by the noise - as we all were!
Our car park space was taken by somebody else who got very upset when we mentioned it.
Need 2 keys for properties or keysafes by each lodge.
Paying for WiFi is a bit archaic.

Great park, beautiful surroundings and friendly staff members throughout the resort. Lovely food in the restaurant and the fish and chip shop. Swimming pool was done the best they could with covid rules. The on-site shop (Nisa) is great and always fully stocked. The beach is always clean and beach shops great. The contactless checking in due the covid is brilliant and think they should keep post covid. The only thing I would say is the toilets in the entertainment club could do with updating. Other than that it is a lovely, friendly and clean resort throughout and we’ve enjoyed coming here for over 40 years.

SomersetGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Fantastic site and location for the beach which is all we want and easy walk to the village for anything you may need

However, the cascades pool is very tired and not at all at the standard I would expect, considering the sessions are limited and still being charged extra for. The pool surrounds are dirty, rusty and needs a complete refurb. The pool is cold (we were told the air handling was broke) and for two of our three visits the rapids were not working.
