We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday, 12 adults and 7 children in total. We stayed in 3 of the lodges that sleep 8 people. The lodges are spacious, clean and very well equipped. The site is surrounded by stunning countryside, open places for cricket/football and the beach is 5 minutes walk away. Perfect for families. We didn't...

We had a lovely week. Location is fantastic on the beach. There is alot to do for children on the site. The 'troupers' were fantastic 😊 The pool is lovely & warm 😊 We ate at the chip shop on the first night & it wasn't nice at all. It could be doing a fantastic trade due to its location...

Couple of issues were that our fridge/freezer didn't work which maintenance sorted for us and the towel rail we were meant to have in our bathroom had...

We had our 22 month old with us and there is a lovely park and an indoor soft play which he absolutely loved. Beach was literally 5/10 mins walk away. My son could walk it. The...

Ruda holiday park in Croyde is smashing. It's proximity to the beach is faultless, the facilities very good, and the bar and eating areas are pretty clean and tidy. The cafe for breakfast is fairly standard, but as a solo holiday maker it's just the job. There's also a Chippy in the evenings, launderette , and mini mart. I've stayed...

When we first arrived, the staff were very helpful and efficient and the caravan itself was modern, clean and spacious with stunning views of the coastline. We went down to the restaurant and received really good service. However, that night and following day I had the worst sickness and diarrhea I've ever experienced. This lasted all but the last day...
