Great clean comfortable caravans and lodges with all you need, included in them. We came away for an early break and it did not break the bank. Staff on reception helped us upgrade our unit, at the very last moment, as we were booking in, they offered us lots of options, when we were being a bit picky about where...

Had a fab family time here via a certain newspapers voucher deal! We upgraded the caravan and it was lovely and had everything you could ask for especially VERY good central heating for a cold February half-term break! Our son loved the pool complex; although be aware the last river is not so lazy and more very fast and can...

We stayed in a lodge which was very roomy but I do think it would be nice to have extra crockery rather than the 6 of everything provided. Even then we only had 5 plates for 6 people. The site is well cared for and the beach is beautiful. We have been coming here for 15 years and the big...

Returned from a fab stay at Ruda. The caravan we were allocated was lovely, very clean and spacious. The holiday park was clean and well maintained and in a great location for easy access to the beach. Kids really enjoyed the evening entertainment and the pool. Suggestion for Parkdean: it would be really useful for the opening hours to be...

We were not staying at the caravan/holiday park but visited the pool (that they advertise in leaflets etc) on a drizzly day. Not a lot to it, and what there is is tired, but the circular lazy rapid and one slide make it a fun place for the kids for an hour. Some pointers on what to expect: - not...

A park I have visited on and off for almost 30 years. Wonderful location with great views and it's own beach. The bay is a haven for surfers and body boarders. Dunes provide a great space for the younger adventurers. The park has a mix of camping facilities for campers and caravaners. There are a range of other accommodations a...

Stayed here in a Torrington caravan, one of the cheaper/smaller accommodation options they have at Ruda. Perfectly acceptable for 2 small kids, clean and it had all we needed. There are a lot more expensive options but if you are looking for something modern, with Central heating, then this does the trick.

We have just returned from an Easter 4 night break. The caravan was clean and tidy. Beds comfy, but the twin beds are a short length. Fine for children but probably not for adults. Large double bedroom. Central heating was good (necessary) because it got cold at night. Staff very friendly and helpful. The whole site was clean. Cascades pool...
