Holiday Accommodation & Location Details
The Ruda is a visually stunning holiday paradise located in Croyde Bay, North Devon. The beach is just a few steps away from Ruda, and the village of Croyde is within walking distance. The village of Croyde is home to a charming thatched roof pub and a Devonshire ice cream parlour.
Surfing is one of the many big attractions in Croyde Bay, and many of the more adventurous of the guests staying at Ruda often find themselves taking surfing lessons while on their holiday.
With watersports like surfing and sailing such a highlight of one’s stay at Ruda, of course fishing is going to be a highlight as well. The local fishermen working the coast bring their catches into the harbor at Bideford and the villages of Appledore and Clovelly.
Fishing is mostly a night sport in Croyde Bay because of the activities of the surfers during most of the day. The night fishing typically slows down in the early morning hours of 3-4 a.m. Baggy Point, about a 30-minute walk from the holiday park is a hot spot for fishermen and anglers alike, boasting many catches by capable rodsmen.
Bass and mackerel are typically among the most popular catches in the area. Strong rip currents, as well as the continual presence of surfers, often force fishermen to take out owned or hired boats into deeper waters.
The accommodations at Ruda include a choice of two- or three-bedroom caravans, apartments, or lodges and cottages. Each unit is equipped with TV and a DVD player; a full kitchen with fridge and freezer, dishwasher, and laundry area; a bath and shower, and additional cots that are available for purchase by travellers seeking more pragmatic solutions. Unfortunately, no pets are permitted in the Ruda.
