We stayed in a lodge for the weekend, three adults and four children. Reception staff gave a very warm welcome. The lodge was pretty good, very warm and comfortable. A bit tired in places some mould in bathrooms but overall the accommodation is good and very well placed. Sand dunes behind the lodge make for a spectacular backdrop. Croyde beach...

Came here in November and stayed at Ruda holiday park and went swimming here every morning. We then came again last weekend but not as residents as we stayed at an apartment in Woolacombe. We were extremely shocked at the price for non residents! It cost us 18 pound for me, my husband, my two year old son and 8...

Stayed in caravan in June 2016. Everything that we needed was there. Beautiful view of sea, lots for kids to do, the beach is beautiful with plenty of places to grab a bite to eat. Bus service right on doorstep to go exploring. Loved it so much back again June 2017.

Recently stopped at this park, we stayed in the 'saunton' caravans, I would describe them as ok, very tidy however there was mould in certain areas of the caravan, there is a gas fire in the living area, however in the bedrooms they have small blow heaters which aren't very good, with us staying here in March the rooms were...

Had a little bit of a panic on the way there after checking some of the reviews here, as we'd booked the cheapest caravan (Saunton) and the reviews weren't too positive. I was completely blown away at the size and niceness of our caravan. We had loads of storage in the double and a ensuite as well as another toilet...

Can't fault the caravan it was spotless. Staff so friendly, nice shop with good selection but bit overpriced. Food in restaurant was as good as you would expect but have to say what a let down the fish and chip shop was, the chips were like grotty oven chips not what we would call proper chip shop chips!! Great couple...

We have visited Ruda on several occasions before both camping & in a caravan so we know the park & area well. We love Croyde and will certainly return again. This occasion was the first time taking our baby daughter away and it was my partner's birthday. The caravan was fantastic, spotlessly clean and had everything you needed. It was...

Loved it! Spotlessly clean site and caravan, friendly and helpful staff, pool was great, only used restaurant once but it was lovely. Highly recommended, so much so we booked for a Christmas break before we left. We had a 3 bed Lynton caravan in tarka way, nice location on site. Beach was stunning.

Great welcome. Easy to find caravan. The caravans were on another level compared to what we're used to. Central heating throughout. Brilliant electric fire. Immaculate. Lots of space. A bonus was that you could actually park next door to the caravan rather than in a car park Close proximity to the beach so would be fantastic in summer The meals...

We booked to stay in a mortehoe caravan during February half term, I used to live not far from ruda and as a child always loved cascades. Now bringing my own children it was great to see they enjoyed it as much as I had. The caravan was amazing, we had everything we needed and any issues we encountered (outside...
